  1. Last week
  2. The Sun is setting in the West, and the golden rays are picking up the beautiful yellow flowers from the Gorse and Broom in the Hogmoor Inclosure! Meanwhile high above the Scots Pines, the Moon looks down over the beautiful scene.

  3. This Magpie arrived on a litter bin in the evening sunshine in the Hogmoor Inclosure only to find its partner had just raided it! The partner Magpie does looked a bit miffed!

  4. Earlier
  5. Platform 6/7 at Guildford has a single track running through it. Herb Robert is a beautiful fragrant native wild flower in England and is slowly growing itself around one of the rails and covering up the litter people throw on the track.

    1-0!

    For those who follow Aldershot Town FC has not been a great season in the Conference National, but in this picture they go 1-0 up against Notts County (reputed to be the oldest surviving football club in the world) and go on to win 3-1!

  7. It’s a wet Sunday afternoon at Havenstreet on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway. Ivatt Tank 41313 waits to depart “Bunker first” to Smallbrook Junction in the early afternoon.

  8. The cows in the field next to Wooton Station on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, show a complete lack of interest in the Shunting signal which allows the train engine to run round its train!

    Bring Back the Trains!

    A random collection of railway photos - from modern, heritage and even some long abandoned lines.

  11. It’s a beautiful Spring Sunday with blue skies in the city of Gloucester and the bells are ringing out! There is hope for this World.

  12. In my family My father's mother was a pretty god artist, unfortunately no one ever kept any of her paintings. I only saw one and my father was alos really good at drawing, but as much as I begged him, he never did anything with it, so though I was never encouraged; I am the first and only member of my family to actually go to college, pursue a degree in art and actively work at it. They inspired me in spite of themselves, LOL
  13. Ah... Well, at least I am lucky in that respect. Jenny and Michelle are both a lot better artists than I am!
  14. I hear you and am fortunate that my children never touched my art supplies. Unfortunately they do not have any natural inclinations toward art either, which makes talking with them about it impossible. On another note, I really love BFK Rives papers, they are archival, heavy, durable, affordable and super versatile accepting many mediums and you can even paint and you can draw or print on the back without any show or bleed through. I use it for all my paintings on paper. You can even purchase a roll.
  15. I used to love rough and heavy hand-made watercolour papers for my pastels... I wonder if my kids have left me any, after three years away from the Philippines? (...'Find out when I finally get back there!)
  16. Thanks again smb, these lil pieces sure do brighten up a space.
  17. I love to deep dive into a painting, it often developes into a relationship with other paintings, as in this case where one of the versions that reminded me of clothes lines, showed up again in an unrelated, yet similar piece I call Pray. See if you can tell which one sparked my imagination.
  18. Thanks again smb For some reason I love painting on this heavy paper, the way the paint and brush react to it is wonderful. Also the paintings can be shipped flat; I prefer not to roll original art. This one lends itself to other versions too and I took advantage of that and made smaller versions, like these two. Each is a good composition in itself, but make a connected series.
  19. Lovely painting. And I agree with you... A lot of people prefer to choose their own frame or mounting. Nice!
  20. Title: Black and White Abstract Media acrylic on canvas Size 18 x 36" unframed Varied brush strokes creating movement, minimal color and subtly suggestive shapes make this painting interesting and adaptive to any environment.
