Painting and Gardening a good combination.....

 "Heavy Skies over Perthshire"
Acrylic 6x6

A wee favourite of mine from the archives. Perthshire looks rather beautiful on a hot sunny day with a tapestry of harvest coloured fields........while you eagerly await whats on the easel!

Have been spending more time in the garden these days, it's sadly been a bit neglected so there is much cutting and hauling out going on.....lots of bending and sore on the back but I'm pleased to say the creaking is subsiding as the bones get used to the exercise :))

I'm sure that, overgrown or not, your garden is lovely. :-) My garden is my place of peace, listening to the birds, the water features, and the breeze through the trees.

It's a place to wipe the slate clean in your mind. I do like my garden to have a more natural feel but at the moment some of the bullies are taking over :))

Your garden is looking beautiful, mine is a little behind this year as spring got off to a bad start, plus the frosty weather continued on for so much longer than usual.

You have captured that Perthshire look perfectly in the painting. It is a lush arable land and you have caught that. It seems that those clouds are never far away at the moment, lol!

Thanks Rolina yep it's been a funny year for the gardens, I've noticed a lot of the trees suffered in early Spring from the chilling winds we got and never really recovered.....the joys of the Scottish climate :))
