Sunflowers

Sunflowers

Monday 18. 07. 16 I bought these sunflowers at the market on Saturday but they haven’t fared very well. I took them out into the garden this morning and did this drawing on the dreaded Yupo, this time with oil pastel. A cheerful drawing to start the week.

Early birthday

BD1

Sunday 17. 07. 16 Celebrated my birthday early with the family. A brilliant poem read by Poppy and Daisy that reduced me to tears, presents and a great BBQ with a chocolate cake for dessert with 1 candle for each 25 years – it is almost worth being 75!!
