Autumn Gold

Leaf Dance Crop

This was an enjoyable experiment. I have in my house a collection of dried leaves my sister and family pressed for our family as a part of a gift a few years back., and they were calling out to be used.  The leaves haven’t photographed as well as I’d like – they are gold; warmer tones than in this photo.

Rooftop Gathering

Rooftop Gathering Crop

There are a couple flocks of doves around our village and one lot hang out on the rooftop two gardens away.

I like the touches of pink/red in the chimney and in the beaks and claws of the doves set against the soft tones of roof, sky and birds.

Freedom

Freedom Crop

This came about after I made a ‘Welcome Home’ card for my daughter (who had been away for a month or so), with a dancing lady on it a bit like this one, and also I had done a painting called A Fine Day, and I wanted to do another with a similar feel, and also something completely from my imagination.

Bridge

Bridge

Not at all what the river is looking like at the moment!  The river has spilled over into the field turning it into a lake, and is nearly over the top of the bridge; the sheep are definitely not grazing. This though is a favourite spot, peaceful and empty of visitors  a lot of the time, but in better weather sometimes a busy-ish  junction for walkers, dog-walkers, kids (and dogs) paddling, picnickers, a horse now and then, cyclists. And the occasional artist.

Wheat

Wheat

Had the Wyeths hovering around in my mind while painting this. I’m glad this is at my mother-in-law’s, because I liked the result, and also it is of a window in the house of some very dear friends, so I’m a little sentimental about it too.
