sheep, fashion and gardening

Really enjoying painting in the style of Robert Joyner who is hosting Strathmore free art workshops at the moment..did this quick sheep yesterday

Made a fun collage card for TMTA challenge which is fashion this week

  I was so pleased to see 3 cordylines growing out of the old cordyline tree that was damaged in the bad storms a couple of years ago.  So today I managed to push down the old tree and planted a new cherry tree.  I have used the old cordyline tree as a barrier between the lawn and think it makes a nice focal point.  I was pleased that the compost bin I purchased is full of compost ..taken a few years but it was great digging and sprinkling it over the soil this morning.  Going to buy a few more mini daffodils tomorrow to add a little colour but hoping to see the blues of the bluebells and muscari soon.

You're very industrious Lorraine! :-) The sheep is so arty....must be a great class. Love the collage too.
Our cordyline sprouted at the base last year (after we all thought they were dead). Its doing quite well now.

I love that sheep Lorraine! Started on a canvas for our church art exhibition, the theme is the Nicene Creed. Came here for some inspiration, as my Jesus is looking like Alice Cooper. I love how you use colour, I've been using my fingers to paint...great fun, feels very Spirit led!!!
