This is the finished image of the fox and the crow. It is too big for my scanner, and my photos have come out darker and duller than the original. Still, I am fairly pleased with it. All the big paintings are off at the framers to be mounted now, in their second hand frames.
It's half term this week, which means a house choc full of children at all times, so not much painting time! It does mean plenty of walks and outdoor time, and yesterday we walked out over Shovel Down, where there are several sets of stone rows. These two are the best, double rows of stones, one lining up along the ancient trackway which crosses the moor here, and the second, at an angle, ending in the usual huge slabs, and concentric rings.
I love to imagine how many thousands of feet have walked these paths before me. These tracks have been in existence since iron age times, and it would be fascinating to reveal the memories they hold.
And finally, my middle daughter has been as prolific as ever with her artwork, but this is one I grabbed before it hit the bin. Her first attempt at altered art/ collage, which is probably better than I could manage!
