The rest of the drawings and paintings shown below are from one of my "Garden Sketchbooks", all drawn or painted in the garden of our last home. Lynn kindly let me post 'old' sketches because of time constraints. Only two hospital appointments (so far!) next week, so I hope I can create some new works.
|"Aster" in A4 'Garden Sketchbook'|
Pitt pen - Jez
The sketch of the Aster blossom measures 4.5 inches by 4.5 inches. I was really pleased with it at the time , and am even more pleased with it now I look back a few years. It's one of those "Did I really do that?" moments. Do you ever have those feeling about something you drew a while ago?

Poppies, whatever their size, are my favourite flowers, particularly the red ones, and most people seem to love them. When I was a young teenager we lived in the country and I worked on the farm next door whenever I could. The fields of oats and wheat would be dotted with the scarlet splashes of wild poppies. So lovely to look at and a treasured memory.
