New Life

A little miracle to share with you.

This is always amazing to see. New life, tiny babies leaving the nest.
Yes,I am going to be overun with spiders living in the greenhouse. But, all the more to catch the greenflies!
And here is another nest...
'Sweet Dreams' An acrylic painting on canvas and already available as a print to buy here.

Now, I'm just finishing off this...
 And then...... another picture is waiting in the wings to be brought to life... 
I love the busyness of Spring .

  2. I really hate spiders...but I am trying to leanr to live with them! lol
    I don't mind the reasonable sized ones that behave themselves...ie, no sudden movements...lol
    I call them Charlotte.

    The other kind...the monster kind we get in September when they are full grown...eeeeeeeeee....they get clobbered with a shoe. They get half the size of your hand & are horrid & black & evil looking. I found one in the bath & it looked so huge & scarey I named it 'Shelob'! LOL Shelob met a dusty rather windy end in the Dyson.

    On a different note...I love your paintings :) They sing to me of spring evenings & birds tweeting

  6. lovely work again - we like spiders and often get nests bursting to life like this - it's lovely isn't it - until they get big and poo from a height! our windowsill is covered in spider poo but worth it for the early morning dewy web.

  7. Wow, what a great pic of the spiders. I don't think I could've got close enough to take it myself. I know it's irrational, but the little buggers make feel sick if I get too close. They're cute from far away though! I love you're paintings too. Overall, your blog is pretty darn amazing!

  12. Hello!

    I stopped by for the first time yesterday, and everything is so lovely here!
    I especially love all the different blues that you put into the skies in your paintings... they look so active, not just a backdrop. And the wee spiders today are charming too.

  13. Just popping in to say `hello'. Hope you are enjoying the breath of spring, even though she's taking a while to truly warm up. :) Lovely to see your work progressing and thanks for sharing the picture of the baby spiders. I think they will be busy this summer! xx

  15. Wonderful. Got to love the tiny spiders. I took pictures of a bunch together last week, I bet they were newly hatched too. I guess I should see if any are good enough to post. Love your paintings too, they always make me smile.

  17. Love your paintings, as always. Great photo of the little spiders. I am a fan of spiders in their proper place which is outside of my dwelling. I can see how they can be of great benefit in a green house. Kudos to you for letting them live. A lesser person would have annihilated the whole brood!

    Wow! I've never seen baby spiders emerging from their nest before! It must've been a special sight I'm sure.

  27. I confess that the sight of all those spiders makes me go cold all over! So I shall concentrate instead on that lovely painting of the fox curled up asleep in the nest - that is so nice.
