What time is it?

                              A fellow wild flower enthusiast
                              failed to notice that the sky is vertical
                              and that the parachutes are not anatomically accurate.
                              They look wet and bedraggles and certainly could not fly.
                              Even so I  think this gives the essence of dandelion
                              far more than my photograph.
                              P.S. Do you tell the time by blowing on a dandelion clock?

How to paint dandelions - FAST and EASY - step by step

Any Pearce says that you will need: dark green paint, light green paint, white paint, canvas, 
3 different sized flat edge small to medium paint brushes.
You can use either acrylic or oil paint.
If you use oil paint-- you will need to wait longer in between layering for paint to dry.

The Swan. Lavenham. UK

   I thought that I'd follow a 90 second house with one from the 15th Century.
   We drew directly with ink onto canvas.
   I was quite pleased with it then but now I think it's time to try again.
   I was fortunate in being able to live in the top overhang of such a building in Bildeston,
   it was the most beautiful home I've lived in in England. Because the floors sloped,
   if you sat on the closed lid of the toilet you gently slid off! The other floors had been
   levelled there having been a difference of say seven inches at one side to the other
   and then they would dip in the opposite direction. It was surprising how soon you
   accommodated the difference in floor pitch.

Guard Dragon.

                My version of Thorn really is magical.
                Should my youngest granddaughter ever become afraid of 'things'
                coming into her bedroom at night. Then I'll give her a magic dragon as a pet.
                He really looks ferocious, but is the best friend you can have to those he loves.
                During the day he watches red and strong
                but at night his magic glitters in the electric light.
                As he is painted with glitter glue.

Girl on the beach.

My lightening flash was made with a wax birthday candle before I painted the picture.
I once read that you had more chance of being struck by lightning than winning the lotto,
well I’ve got past that hurdle and still haven’t won the lotto! I lived in Colorado Springs, USA, this is either the second highest lightening area in the States or the world. I tell you this to emphasise just how spectacular the lightening was, sometime you just had to stand outside and watch. Once in a post card blue sky there was a tiny white cloud with lightening shooting out of it just like a cartoon.

Yorkshire Dale's river.

                     This Yorkshire Dales river flows through the War of the Roses, 
                     as I am a Red Rose and the White Roses in my family don't let me forget it.
                     The fact that The War of The Roses was fought sporadically 
                     between 1455 and 1485 has nothing to do with anyting

River Cole near Crooks Lane.

                             I must have passed this part of the River Cole a million times as a kid. 
                             I've painted this scene several times from the same photo. 
                             I like the composition but will try and take some new photos soon.

Tall ship in the mist

                                   Someone left a magazine in the Rookery Centre.
                                   This ship disappearing in the mist of a tearful story.
                                   I used layers of acrylic paint for a painting
                                   I really didn’t think I had any chance of pulling off.
