Beds and spiders !

On my walk home today saw this ... Very ironic!

 Just before we reached home ... we saw all these amazing spiders and their webs.

Then as we were walking up Telegraph Rd, we saw this leaf hanging from a spider's web.

It was swinging and twisting in the wind. We watched it for ages, turned round to look at something else, looked back and ... it was gone ! I could see quite an interesting drawing project, coming from this.

GOSH visit

A few weeks ago, l had to go to Great Ormand Street (Children's) Hospital (GOSH). On our way, we saw this cute little owl, on a ledge. Well done Tony for spotting it.

Outside the main entrance, there is this sculpture of Peter Pan.

Beautifully child friendly ... of course!

Even the lift is child "interesting" ! Look what is on the ceiling :)

We saw this sculpture in a window, on the way back to the car.

We saw this plaque on a wall, very hidden away. All very interesting, especially as one of the surenames is familiar to my husband's family.

Then when we were driving home, we saw this sculpture, on the edge of Trafalgar Square. Must find out what it is all about. Looks interesting.

A grey sky, faries and dragons.

Today the weather was meant to be awful, as these three images would seem to say, was true! 

But no ... it was beautiful. I was very pleased it was, as l was holding an Art and Craft party today, mostly outside ! It was for a little 4 year old girl, which her family won, in a Christmas Raffle, last year.  It  was a mixed party so l decided to create Fairies and Dragons, in a box. I prepared an example for the children, so they would understand what they could do.

The night before I prepared some boxes and a fairy with a wand. And of course ... loads of glitter !

One fairy in a box plus of course ... l had to get the artist to sign her work.  :)

 Another wonderful fairy.

And a dragon in a box ... isn't it wonderful ?

This was a wonderful Art and Craft party.

Nature and my stetches

Before l show you some images l have taken and some of my sketches ..... l thought you might like to see a wonderful resident of Putney! 

A lot of my Art seems to be about " 3 things". So when l saw these three birds on three posts ... Just had to take a snap!

On my way to take a children's Art session, saw this moth stuck in a spiders web. "Beauty in Death".

 Love this shadow. Can see a project coming out of this shadow image.

Over the last few days, l have been doing some sketching.

This stetch is about my lunch and a tattoo, l saw on a man's arm.

This is of the antiseptic handwash, at the entrance to my father's hospital ward.

Today l showed my students how to look in the mirror, then draw their face, without looking at their drawing. This was my effort. They loved doing it and thought it was very funny.

The start of the painting!

I am fasinated by spider's webs ... also LOVE yellow and circles. I have 
 been taking some images, to inspire me. Watch this space. 
I am really enjoying being able to spend the day, just thinking and painting! I miss artyfizz but l do enjoy the freedom!
