Inspiration comes from all around me and I'm so lucky to live in this beautiful land. Walking the dog gives me the opportunity to find things I may normally overlook. This is one of our favourite walks, although it's pretty arduous in places. We start off along one of the deer paths, through a tangled mass of buddleias now sprinkled with early dog roses.
An hour's walk through deep woodland brings us to spectacular views.
The peace of the sun kissed day invited me to rest on a grassy bed. The dog was too restless for that, maybe next time.
Cool inviting shade,
and gnarly tree roots will definitely feature in future paintings.
Back home for a cuddle with two of my fur babies :D
