Summer Of Colours - Yellow

Here we are again... the weeks are flying and we are halfway through the Summer Of Colours. Kristin has posted this week's colour, yellow, and a more summery colour would be hard to find. As always I have a mixed bag , but first is a very Australian summer image to kick-start my collection.


 We are so lucky in this country to have such fabulous beaches, often with very few people.

Next image is a painting, inspired by my garden.  I love nasturtiums, and they ramble everywhere.  I often pick both leaves and flowers to add to salads.

JUST VISITING - acrylic on canvas, 45 x 45 cm

Of course, I often leave out my pottery... so here's a teapot that I called 'A Handy Little Teapot'.



AND... for all those Adobe Photoshoppers out there I've really gone mad with the summer theme.

SUMMER SUN
I reckon that'll do me for this one, tho' I could go on, and on, interminably.

  10. These are all great pieces. My mother fed us many nasturtiums in salads during my childhood. I think that I appreciate them more now than I did back then. I like your Photoshop piece, it is a cool abstract.

  17. Jane... Thanks for that. We've just had a few days of bitter cold... too cold for the beach, but now the sun is back and days are gorgeous...hooray!

    Liette... Thank you for your lovely comment.
    Sharon... I'm giving up pottery this year to concentrate on painting. It's getting too difficult to do both.

    CM... Glad you like it.
