Spring 2022

Spring is in the air- puddles, potholes and robins and hopefully goodbye to Covid-19.
Below is a watercolour with soft pastels on paper from my kitchen table this month of March 2022. It gives me pleasure and ups my spirit to paint these colourful flowers

Bouquet of March

Pretty in Pink

I continue to follow Joined Brushes on WhatApp. Our weekly artist this week was Tetjana Yablonska (1917-2005) a Ukraine painter . I find it best to quote these words from archive.com  « possessed an inexhaustible love of life and optimism, which allowed the artist to maintain her strength and desire to paint even under the most difficult circumstances ». If you wish to follow her life of painting there is a great numbers of her works on the Internet.

The aim of Joined Brushes is to inform us about an artist weekly and then to chose a works we relate to and produce a similarity. It difficult as we are always aware of copyright and try not to infringe on this right of artists
