Restorative walk



I always find walking along the North Norfolk coastal path calming restorative. The endless skies of clouds whch make dreamy characters from children’s picture books and the gentle salty air filled with samphire and sea lavender. The colour palette and interesting wild textures inspire me to write and paint.

Here are two textured painted sketches of the atmosphere evocative of Stiffkey salt marshes. I hope you enjoy t

Magical sky


2015-09-28 17.39.09-1-01

I took this photo on the evening of the eclipse. I can only describe to you the atmosphere was just so magical and the sky was pure poetry!

I woke up at 3.00am gmt and ventured into our garden to watch the blood moon emerge as the eclipse took place. I shared the experience with the Piperstrelle bats which were swooping about. It was amazing. Unfortunately I had forgotten my camera and didn’t want to wake hubby who had an early start for work.:-)

The journey begins

As you know I’ve been busy starting to renovate our Victorian cottage. I apologise for not posting but I have been rushing up and down the motorway to the cottage every day and working until dusk as there are no lights in the cottage yet. I love Tuesdays because as I work away, stripping off old wallpaper, I am serenaded by the bell ringers practising in our local church. Outside is dark and peaceful. I love it, my artistic project to bring back this little house to the Victorian era, with rustic modern and vintage features and make it a happy home again. The quarter of an acre cottage garden will be restored too, to include an orchard and my Art studio.
Hopefully here’s the link you requested. Enjoy my tales and please still read my poetry here because the rambles continue! Many thanks for all your support. 🙂

Dailypost photo challenge: cover art-The memory of trees


the memory of trees

This week’s daily post photo challenge has Iinspired me to think of a favourite album and to create my own cover art. My choice of album is Enya’s ‘The memory of trees’.  If you don’t know it I can thoroughly recommend Enya’s effortlessly relaxing music. I often play ‘The Memory of trees’ when I’m practising daily yoga, meditating, writing or just enjoying relaxing. I enhanced my shot with ‘Pics art’ editing tools to hopefully give that dreamy quality and remind me of autumn. I hope you like it. Below is the link to many more entries.

A word a week photo challenge: recline-reclining cat.


reclining cat

I couldn’t resist this shot of the cat reclining on the balcony, enjoying the sunshine. We were walking our dogs along the Grand Union canal at Berkhamstead, a lovely English town full of interesting shops, architecture, history and a canal and railway going through it.

Thanks to Sue Llewellyn for inspiring me with her word a week photo challenge.

Cees fun foto challenge:buildings- fairytale cottage


2014-06-29 14.39.43-1_1
I couldn’t resist entering my little fairytale cottage into Cees challenge. I can imagine a higgledy piggledy wibbly wobbly cottage, full of creaks and spooky corners and a welcoming waft of warm gingerbread.

Soulful Roses


_104 _106 _110Soulful roses,

Lover’s tipsy posies

They sip dewy petal potions

As their rouched lips

Whisper

A tryst…

Betroval.

 

Faded flame


Faded flame
Darts like a
Ragged mane.
