In the cold weather I often turn to my paints usually as some form of project,last Autumn one small corner of the garden was left with a section of open trellis that needed prettying up so decided on some small paintings to fill in 9 in number of the spaces, each plate is 9 × 6 inches Acrylic on Aluminium plate. soon as it warms I will screw each one in place.

Hope that all makes sense.

I love the fox BJ S.
What medium do you paint with ?
Painting is very relaxing and it helps to take away the winter blues.

Your work is absolutely brilliant Brian . . . I especially love the little animal peering out of the tree!

well aren't you a talented fella. I think they will look lovely on the trellis. longtailed tit and ladybird are my favourites.

Perfect sense. They are going to add a whole new perspective on that part of the garden.

What a lovely idea, Brian. You are a talented chap, my fav is the dormouse peeping out.

I love the Dormouse peeping out of the trunk, truthfully they are all good and will look lovely on the trellis, they would be eye catching wherever you placed them, that's a great way to pass away the winter Brian....

What a splendid idea, they are going to look great on your trellis......food for thought!

Oh my goodness what a talent you have! Your trellis is going to look amazing! I love the Dormouse.

I now know that everything you tackle is done to perfection! First your fabulous plants and now your wonderful paintings.
Each one has its own beauty, my favourite is the butterfly - I think, until I look again and find another favourite!

You are a man of many talents, Brian! Your work is fantastic! I just don't know how anyone can paint like that or do music or any of the other 101 things I could never do!

The first photo, of the Tortoiseshell butterfly on the Buddleia flowers reminds me strongly of a photo I took of one of these butterflies on a Buddleia bush on Gerry's allotment some years ago! LOL!

I am back on sketching magnified lumps of rock to make
into landscapes - nothing on T/V Saturdays so I build
mountains !

Great idea Diane! :)

On Brian, I want the dormouse! Wish I still had a colour printer so that I could have a copy on the wall.

Will the images stand up to the weather? Do hope so.

The long-tailed tit is my favourite! :)

Good evening, Brian,
I like ladybirds on the bamboo branch.
A miniature orange kite.
A tiny dot-to-dot delight.
And the bird in the middle on the left side.
