I had plans this week to paint bluebells, as you can see they are at their best right now. Sunday was so mild and pleasant, walking through our local wood with birds busy nesting and bumblebees humming. Everywhere great drifts of bluebells as far as the eye could see.
Instead I am painting holly and poinsettia for a client in a hurry. These are the joys of being a freelancer, still, where would we be without Christmas? So whilst I am away please feel free to wander through our little wood, but please don't tell anyone else because it's our secret!
