Day 94/100 of my #100dayproject and Ive painted a bunch of flowers grown on a friends allotment in the local village! I was given them as a thank you for raising 1130 for the childrens pre-school. This money will enable them to offer forest school next year as part of the curriculum! Thank you to everyone that donated a piece of artwork for the secret postcard show @constantinesecrets2018 it was hugely appreciated!  (Ive just realised how similar these colours are to yesterdays post?! ) - My…

Day 93/100 of my #100dayproject and I thought it would be appropriate to paint a dragon fly amongst other things as we have so many flying around just now! They are very beautiful to watch did you know they are one of the fastest flying insects and some can fly up to 30mph! They also need to warm up in the sun during the morning before taking off and flying for most of the day. We love spotting them and this one in the middle is a yellow ringed dragon fly one of the biggest found in the U.K…

Day 93/100 of my #100dayproject! And another little swallow for my pattern making collection! I do love a fact as you guys probably have guessed! I quite like this one - Before the mysteries of migration were understood it was thought that swallows spent the winter buried in the mud of ponds and lakes  I can see why people may have thought this especially as their nests are all mud based!  we saw a pair still feeding young in a nest at the beautiful @heligangardens on Saturday I wonder if…

Day 90/100 of my #100dayproject and here are some prickly teasels! This plant provides food for bees and birds particularly blackbirds and the beautiful goldfinch! When I was a student I used to work at a local wooden mill  where we used teasels to clean raise the nap and align the fibres of the scarfs that we folded! Those were the days! - My 100 day project this year will be paintings of nature. Laced throughout this project will be 50 nature words that have been removed from the Oxford…

Hey lil swallow! Day 88/100 of my #100dayproject! A little fact for you which ties quite nicely in to the fact that my kids are obsessed by Sea shanties at the moment ...... The swallow tattoo was a symbol used historically by sailors to show off their sailing experience. According to one legend a sailor tattooed with one swallow had travelled over 5000 nautical miles. A sailor with two swallows had travelled 10000 nautical miles! . . . . . . . #100dayproject #handpainted #floralblooms…

Unfortunately it clashed with the kiddies sports day but Im looking forward to showing you some of the results! We are so lucky here in Cornwall to have a programme for creative businesses funded by…

Day 87/100 of my #100dayproject and Im really enjoying painting these Hedgerow beauties! I feel like Ive been neglecting my facts recently! So here goes. There are around 30000 miles of Cornish hedges in Cornwall many of these were built in ancient times 4000 to 6000 years ago. Nearly 200 flowering species have been counted in one mile providing food for insects which then attracts mammals birds and reptiles that use the hedge for food and shelter! - My 100 day project this year will be…

Morning! Day 84/100 of my #100dayproject and here is another Swallow! Such beautiful birds! I saw one on the ground outside our front window the other day it was really odd. Ive only ever seen them in flight or on a wire never that close up. When I looked it up it said they dont normally come down to the ground to feed but only to gather for a nest?! Any bird knowledge welcome! Hope you have a sunny day! My husband is away just now so expect me to fall even further behind! (See my stories…
