I’ve been focusing on some tiny painting lately! These are pebbles collected while on holiday in Devon and Cornwall in England. The pendants are painted with acrylic, varnished and hung on waxed cotton string with Japanese sliding knots.
These now belong to someone, but look out for ones available to buy…..
I do love trees. This painting comes from countless walks through the small beech wood, ten minutes amble from my doorstep. Love it in the autumn when the golden-brown leaves float down and carpet the ground and let in the bright blue sky, when the winter reveals the tracery of the branches, in the spring with the fresh light green of new leaves, and in the summer when only shafts of sun make it past the shade to the beech wood floor.

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.
