Today at Paint Party Friday we are having a virtual tea party in support of Tracy, who has been courageously fighting breast cancer this year with a wonderful mixture of toughness, humour and fortitude. My contribution is a painting on cardboard of tea cups, with a quote from William Gladstone.
I must admit, though, that tea is not really my cup of tea, I prefer coffee!
As it is my birthday tomorrow on Winter Solstice I made a painting for myself to celebrate the return of the light. I used acrylics and pastels. I still need to do some work on it, but hope to get it finished today. Sorry about the bad photos, it was dark and cloudy all day, and not good for taking pics of black paintings! It is showing the moon over Stonehenge and the gradual awakening of the hidden colours of the earth.
The photos were taken on my wet, wild and windy walk today, it was fun watching the clouds being blown across the sky at the Rhine.
That's all for today. Take care, and thanks a lot for coming by.
