Nature’s Garden

Hello everyone, today starts the new challenge over at Country View Crafts and today Jane chose Garden Flowers. What a wonderful subject for the summer month of July. Hopefully you will you have experienced our glorious summer so far, as here in my little village snuggled between the Cumbrian mountains and the Pennines it has shone non stop for over a month. I feel truly blessed to sit in my garden surrounded by such glorious nature.

One of the things I have enjoyed very much while driving around this beautiful County is the daisies growing everywhere and in abundance. They are all over the fields, in peoples gardens but most of all on many of the roads verges. As you drive along there are carpets of white everywhere. There is a particular wonderful display as you drive from Penrith towards Keswick, with the mountains in the backdrop, the rolling hills and then the carpets of daisies all of which make a truly gorgeous picture, and it is this that has inspired my first piece for this month.

This very loose water painting was built in layers, but very simple to do. Below are some shots of the progress.

I hope you are inspired to play along in this months Challenge especially as you could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend in the wonderful
