Every cloud has a silver lining - so they say.
Well, we have lots of cloud at present and plenty of rain as well.
Obviously, for those of us who like to create, the cloudy days provide us with lots of time for making our mark.
After a long chat with Linda on the phone I settled down to work on my gum blossom. So far it is not finished but the background is done. Gold foil over a canvas is covered with hessian to support the leaves and flowers. Once I am happy with the position of the elements I will secure them to the hessian and it will be done.
I am so pleased that I went with the gorgeous sunny yellow for the flowers - it really speaks of summers past and future.
