    Your watercolours are amazing @geefull
    The circled tree would make a great avatar.

    That's another very fine watercolur painting, again I'm impressed with the light on the hills and on the water especially at the horizon. Your tree would make a good avatar.

    Thanks for you appreciation of my art.

    Plein Air and iPad, brilliant and a well drawn industrial seascape. I'm always fascinated with where nature meets mans interference there are lots of interesting possibilities for art, although they seldom make a pretty painting. Look forward to more.

    Thank you very much @Muddy Cyclist for the compliment.

    Industrial landscape has never really been my thing, preferring natural landscapes. But when I was a teenager, I do recall painting cooling towers. I don't have those paintings now, but I can still remember the paintings I did

    I do need to try out different things.

    My fbg this morning was 4.4

    @geefull hope your hubby feel better soon.

    I really must take my hat off to all the fine artists that post such wonderful works of art here. I find it so uplifting but it does bring out a faint whiff of jealousy in me.

    I even went as far as downloading procreate pocket to my I phone but it did not take me to long to realize I don't posses the artistic bent required just ended up with a formless monochromatic scribble to be honest.

    My apologies for this
    But I may persist who knows what might happen.

    You do yourself an injustice @JohnEGreen
    I see a field of butterflies. It is a beautiful painting. And it is much better than my first attempt at Procreate!
    Keep painting and posting.

    You did really well on a phone, I tried it and gave up. Can't even draw with my finger so I need the precision of the pen and pad.

    Nicely done.

    This morning I shall report a 6.3 and go wait for Asda to arrive before barking :)

    Enjoy the day

    Good morning, if it is, which I doubt - guess who watched Winnie The Pooh yesterday and found Eeeyore a kindred spirit? Stabbo saw fit to declare a failed day yesterday with 5.7. Cold still lingering - wish I was a mouse in the Keto experiments 'cos it doesn't suit my immune system. Too many little episodes like this over the past five years to be coincidence. Austerity (in the diet) seems to leave the system unfit for purpose when challenged by events. One of the problems of ideology at all costs. Hildegard of Bingen to be remebered today https://www.classicfm.com/composers/bingen/guides/discovering-great-composers-hildegard-von-bingen/ A member here, @zauberflote, is an admirer. Great art again folks. Hope Mr G is recovering @geefull. 2 granddaughters here today and a grandson after school so 1 son at a time to collect their progeny or #snitchgate

    That 's exactly why we changed to the mortice lock - much less stressful.

    Your checklist is a good idea. I definitely need one for the Norwich venue.

    Depressing news today.

    Slogans won't get the World king and Rasputin out of this one.

    We are all in a big fix now and need to find a way to keep those who are vulnerable safe.

    Good morning everyone from a gleam of yellow and a pale hue of blue in the dark and dangerous north

    The wonder wheel of and early dinner out with eldest granddaughter came in at 5.4 this am

    Granddaughter number 2’s birthday yesterday - 6 - video link to see fun and frolics with a piñata in the garden and then the ceremonial opening of gifts and cards, twin sisters helping out.

    @Muddy Cyclist - hug for the prospects of giant tomatoes - lino prints - loads of effort - takes me back to my mother making Christmas cards and an ink stained oilcloth on the kitchen table. I like your sketch.

    @geefull - thank you for your kind comments. Tree - smashing and yes, will make a wonderful avatar. Another fine watercolour - I like the clouds, heavy with rain. Well, all of it really.

    @gennepher - out and about with IPad - great industrial scene - reminds me of the A55 going past Ellesmere Port and Queensferry on our way to the mountains.

    @JohnEGreen - you put yourself down - great stuff - and on a phone. I see a murmuration - fabulous.

    Phew! I hope everyone has a very good day, I now need some koffy.

    I am sure, John, if monkeys can write a Shakespearean sonnet, you in relatively short order will produce a Turner!
    Keep up the practice.

    Thank you. I can oblige with that industrial landscape if you like @dunelm it is a few miles up the road...I wouldn't mind an early morning visit to The Works nearby, while I'm still allowed to cross the border into that strange land called England, for bits and pieces.

    I love your little scene of froggy, fisherman, and dragonflies...brilliant!
