A GREY BOWL
What do you think of these?

I thought you might like to see a few more photos of my recent holiday.
I loved these two lions guarding the door.
THE LION HOUSE
Everywhere we went there was beauty and stillness.
ON THE DAILY WALK
And there seemed to be so many robins singing to us.
A ROBIN SINGING
It's also good to be home.

But first I have to give a short explanation.
When many years ago I started a four year course at Art College the tutor took one disparaging look at my attempts at painting and said I had to put more texture in it.
I hadn't a clue what she was talking about.
I added bumpy bits, crumpled paper, leaping strips, different materials.
Not right. Had to do it again and again.
It took me more than a month (or two) to work out what she meant.
So painting of "The Uphill Street" which I made a few years ago has no texture
but this latest one has texture.
And when I recently sent this next design as a card to my sister, she said "It's got a great texture". My sister is the best ever.
Here's a final one for now.
It's a painting of Escharoides coccinea which are creatures of the sea and I've given them pink ribbons because I think they might like it.
I hope you all like these paintings with texture because I'm obsessed with them and I'm going to make more.
