  1. This is lovely…so textural!!! I love the sketches of your geese, and that one of the swaying backsides really made me smile. Keep up the good work.

  2. After falling into a yard full of chestnut burrs – I can say you truly captured the prickly-ness of them!! I was removing thorns from my backside (and my hands, from trying to push myself up!) for days! There must have been hundreds – truly!

    Your sketches are so lively! I always love, love to see that you have posted something new!!!

  3. Love how these echo botanical art with the leaves, nuts etc. Informing in an artful way.

  4. Thank you everybody!

    @ Joan: Thank you; I’m happy that you said textural..

    @ Dana: Oh goodness, I can imagine that fall and the getting up..no joke! The thorns are so fine, it is like prickly pear; you can feel it, but can’t see it!

    @Cindy: Thank you, I love botanical art and wish I could do proper botanical art, but I don’t have the patience for it.

  5. Love your paintings of the chestnuts. I’ve just been on a walk a come back with a bag full, to do some sketching & painting. It was you who inspired me to start aquarelle painting after seeing your blog & reading about your time in provence.
