Still amongst the buttercups...

... and mayfly, cased caddis, eels and freshwater shrimp!









I have spent the last few weeks working with the South Cumbria Rivers Trust in selected primary schools in the area. Each school group was given the opportunity to spend time in and around their local river discovering its delights. We have had some great finds which so far point to healthy habitats here in South Cumbria. Philippa does all the science bit and I then encourage them to be inspired and get creative making their own river creatures. It is our last school this week and it looks as though we are going to have another dry session.
I hope you like this small selection of the artworks.

I have just got back from a week of painting on the amazing isles of Mull and Iona and ended the week yesterday sat in a beautiful field of colour and natural wonder!
