    Sounds like you are well on top of everything, a day to relax and watch the world go by.

    Thank you.

    So much going on in your art today, lazy fisher men, busy insects and Mr Froggy looking very suspiciously at that helicopter. Some fine drawing techniques included in this digital art.

    Good Morning, late, and 6.3 for me today.

    Still decorating here, what a waste of good weather and free vitamin D but takes my mind off the discomfort of my bloomin abscess. Lots to do before new floor can be laid, Mrs MC wants Parquey, saw pound signs in fitters eyes :) , this of course is to be blamed on Current Covid pandemic, no money spent on Holliday so it can be spent elsewhere. :joyful:

    Do whatever you do best and enjoy it. Keep safe.

    Sounds like a great plan MC but the weeks of neglect to the house mean a busy day if I can get myself up from the sofa!

    Azure skies and bright sunshine this cool but
    beautiful autumn day. Walked up the hill at the back of the house but visibilty not as good as it can be, perhaps 30 miles.

    We went out to as close to Scotland as we could at Bowness on Solway on monday am where a few birders were loosely gathered watching and photographing Arctic shore birds at high tide. I didn't try very hard to get any picts but because the road round the 'island' is very close to the shore a car makes an ideal hide.

    When we got home we found the 'young horse woman' who rides her two hunters past us every day, had left us another dozen eggs, as she has done particularly during lockdown since March....this has been done out of kindness, refusing to accept any payment.

    At first glance I though you had posted a photograph, then I realised it's a great digital rendition of this iconic place, brilliant.

    It's known to us Black Country Folk as Jodrul Bonk. :)

    Always found it funny how people confuse Brum and the Black Country dialects. I blame Benny from Crossroads

    My painting for today...
    Not in a mood for a realistic painting...
    But wanted to do the bridge from yesterday...
    Just in a mood about something...

    I call it The String Bridge...
    But it's not. It's a suspension bridge I think...
    Details don't matter...

    Title - 'Breaking Free'

    Maybe i should not derail the Art Thread with more mundane matters?
    Was only half awake this morning, fed the cat, made tea and coffee, woke up sufficiently to realise cat needed medicine. And eardrops. Ofc having had his breakfast was not very co-operative, More on the floor and fur than inside the cat. MrSlim had to help. Will probably need that again tonight.
    Forgot FBG, ah well there is always tomorrow.

    Wonderful - it looks as though the bridge is morphing into a giant bird

    My son posted this on face book I thought I would share.

    People come and go,
    in and out of the places where I am,
    I come and go,
    in and out of the places where they are.
    But love is always there,
    a constant strength.
    It is with love that we begin and
    in love we walk our differing paths.
    It is Love that we have been learning to love
    and by Life we have been learning to live.
    So, moments come and go,
    places come and go,
    but Love is always there,
    a constant strength,
    late have I begun to see you,
    late have I understood my paths
    have always been in you.
    late have I loved you,
    Love so ancient and so new.
    so, I try to let them pass,
    to go their way,
    because Love is always there,
    a constant strength.
