Wivenhoe West Mersea reflective mood

I find it amazing how very small changes in the weather and the atmosphere have an effect on me and how I look and feel about things.

This past few days I have had that wonderful autumn feeling, it starts in my toes of all places, I can feel the chill coming, its come a little earlier this year, but I feel that I should start to tidy up the garden and put it to bed for the winter.

This morning I saw my first robin his winter waistcoat not completely red, I think he must be one of this years babies.

I have already started making mustard piccalilli and chutney with the vegetables from the garden, next the blackberries and apples will be ready and I shall be making jams, Christmas cakes and puddings as well as apple stuper and a fabulous winter chutney.

I love this homely feeling , filling the larder with the summers bounty..... in my case its the cupboard under the stairs.

It has also put me in a reflective mood I have been looking at some work that I did last year I thought you might like to have a look at my pictures of the boat yard in Wivenhoe and the wreck at West Mersea.

Here are two versions of the wreck at West Mersea.

  1. WOW your work is stunning.
    I only wish I could paint as good as you.
    would love to see more of your works, please.


  2. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog! Your art is just absolutely beautiful!

  3. Beautiful paintings! You've really captured the feel. I can almost smell the earthy salt air.
    All the talk about canning has me longing for a garden (or better yet, a neighbor with a garden) :)

  4. Many thanks,I appreciate the feedback.x
