Road to Recovery by Carole Russell


Small (23.1" x 16.4")

Available to buy on…

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!
