Autumnal Garland

I spent a day with the Cartmel Art Society this week where we relived our early schooldays printing and sticking leaves and playing with paint! We had some spectacular results by the end of the day with some dynamic autumnal washes flooding the paper and creating a virtual woodland carpet. The day proved so popular I will be returning to do it all again next week with the rest of the group!

The Aroma of Christmas...

Having just completed a couple of new ink paintings I can now smell the oncoming Christmas season with the evocative aroma of these clementines. With their intense orange colour and contrasting green leaves they are a reminder of my favourite seasonal cake recipe, the Clementine Cake by Nigella Lawson, which is so yummy and is a cake tin staple for all my gluten free guests....
So enjoy these pictures and do get hold of that recipe!
