Magpie Morning
Soft pastel and pastel pencils on pastel paper.

I thought I would go back to the bird paintings for a while, so tried this one with pastels. Not a superstitious person but the old chant "one for sorrow , two for joy" came to me, so put the other one in on the ground.

Peek a Boo

Oil on Canvas Board

Using up oil paint left over from classes , it made a nice change from the ink pigment I have been using lately. I had a small painting on a canvas board that I had discarded, unfinished, so decided to use the board.
I have painted so many derelict cottages lately I thought a derelict car would be a nice change, still the same theme though.

Derelict farmyard

Ink pigment and acrylic paint on acrylic paper.
11.5" x 8"

Really on a roll with these ink pigments although I have used small amounts of acrylic paint on this one. Another derelict farmyard that I would love to own, but wouldn't have the energy to renovate. Looking for a name for the painting....any suggestions?

I found this beautiful old wooden house in the middle of the forest on a birdwatching trip to Poland a few years ago. It seemed abandoned but had a satellite dish, so maybe it was lived in.Would have loved to own it , in such an idyllic spot.
