There is a wave of emotion ongoing today. Following the US Supreme Court Roe v Wade ruling. I can understand why many people will not want to discuss it. I don't particularly want to either, but I feel upset and concerned. As previously highlighted in An Incensed Observer and A Question of Women's Rights. Because … Continue reading Thought For The Day
Today another first. I am participating in Cee's Flower of the Day Challenge. The Clivia Miniata from the Amaryllidaceae family (I'm thinking Amaryllis). Also known as the Bush Lily or Natal Lily.

Sadly much of it is now beyond my capacity. I may perhaps one day revisit watercolour, less likely furniture painting. In the meantime I dabble with … Continue reading Pencil Sketching
