Poppies in Autumn and flying kites by the Mersey








Had fun finishing a painting today. This one is called Poppies in Autumn and is inspired by my love of seed heads and the lovely red colours of the virigina creeper in my garden. I have painted the background then mounted some perspex on the front with some poppies I have drawn.


It has been a glorious hot day today so we all went to the Estuary to fly the kites my sons had made in school. I have been playing around with one true media.com which lets you make little movies for free from some of your photos so click here to watch my youtube little video.
