Moo of the Day : Buttercup phones Home : It looks as if we will never know how Buttercup finally got out of that boat and is now phoning home to be picked up and lead back to her field…and what happened to the boat....there will be one Irish farmer who has found his cow but also wanting to know the answer to that question...the thick plottens even more thicker.....

Scottish Castle : This is a close up of the castle a day or two ago...I was intrigued by the brickwork of the sides or rather stone work but there seemed to be both when I looked closer...The sun was hitting some of the sticking out stones which made interesting shadows...hard to reproduce in acrylic paint. I'd like to have another closer look at it…..

New Forest Path : Just reviving my long neglected website and found this landscape I did in the New Forest reminding me that it is a great place to paint…I promised myself that I would spend more time there next year…..and get some great landscapes under my belt.

The Red Warehouse : One of my students ideas that she was copying from one of her own photographs...my idea was to paint a copy of it along with her as she worked on hers...so that I could show her the next step on my painting without working on her painting....one of the many faults I have....I get carried away and think it's my painting and just carry on with it and completely forget it is the work of someone else ...ho hum...

Meow of the Day : Sam the man : This is Sam a very light coloured cat almost no colour at all...so this time I tried to as lightly as possible using the acrylic paint like a watercolour...to get that wispy affect....I like the look of this and will try it again….as it has much power...

Moo of the Day : The Three Stooges : Some families love to dress their children up like themselves so the whole family are wearing the same and looking like a " Family" it doesn't fool us…once we've finished posing for this artist were are getting rid of all this unnecessary stuff and getting back into our leathers...and looking like cows again.....well calfs....at least.

Tweet of the Day : The Blue Tit : Another Blue Tit... I think that that is because there are so many in our garden. As soon as I put out new nuts in the feeder out they came, hanging comfortably under the feeder much to the pigeons annoyance....who have to wait underneath for any titbits.
