In my garden, dill is growing in abundance, self seeded from last year. In the midst is a poppy plant, also self seeded. The compliment colours, the lacey effect of the dill and the brilliant poppy in the midst was just asking to be painted.
There is something exhilarating about painting – the whole creative process, the learnings and the discoveries, and always – the challenges. I started painting in watercolour when the children were leaving home. A few years later, my artist mother suggested oils, and it has become a passion. I share my journey with this blog as I stretch myself with the exhuberant intention of painting daily.
