As October is being tucked up in bed to sleep for yet another year, the days are filled with hints of gold. There is a golden carpet of leaves on the ground. It glistens in the damp misted morning and crackles and dances like sparks on a bonfire, on the windy days across the paths that I walk.
On the oak tree in the field nearby, we found hornets wearing their golden stripy outfits.
Meanwhile below the old holly tree, I have continued to feed my little robin friend. He is quite partial to porridge oats I've found out. I managed to film a little and thought you might like to see. It's just a short clip and not brilliantly edited, so I do apologise for that. If you follow me on Facebook I've already shared it there but for anyone else here it is.
I did this little pencil drawing in between working on new hangers. I think it has captured him and his distinct eyebrows. :)
In other news... I have two paintings in the latest issue of EarthLines magazine.
It's a wonderful magazine and I feel very honoured to be included. To subscribe or buy a copy of the latest edition, pop across to here.
I got to do one this year because Son is at Uni. ;)
