Haven’t been too well recently (chickenpox and pnuemonia) so I’m slowly building my strength back up by walking.

This is an old railway line close to where I live, out of use since 1968, now left as nature intended.

After my walk today I sat down and painted what I remembered of the beautiful wild flowers all trying to stand out for those bees to come visit.

    I thought you had gone missing for awhile! This is a magical painting. What wonderful colours mother nature has painted our world with!!! You have captured this little slice of heaven so well. I do hope you are feeling much better.

  • I had to paint it, as you say nature is full of colour this year. – I’m on the mend – too slow for my liking but getting there – thanks Lynda!
