Artists inspiration

I’ve just come back from a holiday in Scotland, where the weather was warmer than Southampton. I was lucky to be loaned a camera for the trip a Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ48. Compared with my phone it is brilliant, so I took a lot of pictures. Photographs from Scotland some will eventually become inspiration for pictures and some are art in their own right.

Yesterday I took the camera for a rove around our local common it was a glorious sunny day and I had great fun taking pictures of birds, insects and plants. Southampton Common photographs

I seem to be obsessed with bees and other pollinators recently having contributed a set of 20 hand drawn cards to the latest Art House exhibition. I went to the opening night and found some framed on the wall it was wonderful to see. If you happen to be in Southampton in August go into the Art house and have a look, try the cake while you are there.
