Little Witch...Friends Forever




This "Little Witch" reminds me of my middle sister...she has such a sweet little face...just sitting in the meadow enjoying herself with her best friend crow.
(My sister didn't actually have a crow for a friend!)
I think she's a little child of nature...I don't know if others will see her this way...but to me she symbolizes the natural instinct which children have, to be in tune with their surroundings...and to find pleasure in simple things.

I would have loved to have had a crow for a friend...

My Harvest



This little cutie is so proud of her harvest...just look at the beautiful pumpkins she's grown...all by herself!
She seems a little "Old Fashioned" in this outfit...she just ended up very traditional looking...not a bit how I had imagined her at all...I think it suits her though...even if she does look a little prim.

Seems I just can't stop painting these "Little Witches"...wonder who the next one will be?

Feed The Birds


I've just finished another of the folk art children's paintings...this one is called, "Feed The Birds"...although someone who saw it said it should be called, "Crow Girl"...just goes to show how each person sees your art work!

Actually I like this one, she seems really happy...standing in a field feeding her big black birds...makes me want to join her.

We do have plenty of them around here...now where's that corn?

The Green Man


Back to The Green Man...I can't leave him alone!
(Must be the smell of all those leaves...I love the smell of leaves...how sad!)

Yes, I am painting another picture of The Green Man...over the years I have created him in many different styles and materials...I have made cross stitch charts...needlepoint cushions...sketches...you name it, I have stuck a Green Man on it.
This time though I am doing him in acrylics on canvas...I'm not really sure whether I like his portrait at the moment...he seems to have passed too far into Autumn and needs greening up a bit more.
Maybe this time of year is affecting my work...my colours are all leaning towards the shades of the season...oh dear...what will the Winter bring...white snow on a white canvas?
Not really...I'm not THAT arty...(ha ha ha)
