Playing with pastels

Fuschia.jpg

One of my first pastel drawings

I’d been sat in the front garden, of the terraced house i live in and decided to bring some colour to my drawing pad

The trees in the garden were coming into bloom , whilst the fuschias and minature roses were coming into their own.  They danced around like ballerinas in the slight breeze

I tried to get some detail in, my talent more observant of the leaves than the petals.

But in what seemed to be a short while, i’d frittered away two whole hours on the garden bench.  Pausing on the hour to enjoy a Corned beef Sandwich and a cool lemonade.

Playing around with the Greens , Pinks and Reds.  With Blue making a cameo appearance.

Take Five

Relax

 

Stop for a moment and sit down…

 

Raise your feet and

Enjoy a warming cup of tea

Let the stresses of the day – melt like the sugar cube in your cup

And let your aches and pains ease off

Xactly what’s needed after all that Christmas shopping

 

Take in the sun

Relax

 

Summers morning by the beach

Umbrellas only required to keep off the sun

Motivation ? You’re not in work today

Make the most of the weather

Enjoy that packed lunch you brought with you and

Relax – take in the view.

A Mug of something magical - normally my mug of hot cocoa from whittards!!!
A Mug of something magical – normally my mug of hot cocoa from Whittards!!!

Every day,

at the same minute

at the end of the day

when the house is empty,

I’ll heat up the milk

and watch as the cocoa

makes patterns in the vortex of the mug.

then i’ll sit in a comfy chair

Cup in hand

turn the volume up

and listen to stories
