Thanks Helen and Gattina,I love these colours , especially the lilac .Thanks Terra, and yes i will keep on painting, especially this time of year when there's nothing much to do in the garden.Thanks cazcat and Sheilar for your lovely comments. I just hope Lil sees this now as she was the one to encourage me.I sent this picture to my dear friend Elizabeth in Ireland as a Christmas pressy.Once upon a time when times were really hard I always did pictures as presents.Happy Christmas all of you and thanks for making me feel so welcome here on goy.

Lovely painting & your friend must be thrilled to have it on her wall. The colours are beautiful & I would love to park myself on that bench to enjoy it all.

that is so pretty rose, you clever girl, would make anyone smile to see that everyday on their wall

so glad you started painting again

Ha ha! Rose, gosh, that looks familiar... maybe it's because it's up on my wall! Thank you so much again, Rose, I'm so pleased with it, it's beautiful, and as I said before, it must have taken you ages, and then you gave it away...to lucky old me!! It's a very thoughtful gift, my friend, I'm really touched!xxx ps, don't stop now, Rose, on to the next one!

That's really nice. To make sure Lil Crawford sees this, you could send her a private message and let her know.

You are an excellent painter. Looks like professional art.

Thanks meadowland, I will take that as a compliment from a very talented lady.
Thanks Dywliss and Stickie.That bench gave me a right old headache trying to get it right.I'm pleased it made you smile Stickie.
Thankyou so much Alextb and Nana d for that really lovely compliment, I am blushing now!
Aah my friend Elizabeth, what can I say! I'm so glad you like it.

I know just how you feel,Rose.Garden furniture is so difficult.I think I changed mine about 5 or 6 times.Is this Acrylic,Rose? How do you feel starting again? Thank you for your kind comment.x

Its a mix of water colour and acrylic Meadowland and I was a bit nervous at first , but once i got started , it all came back to me and I really enjoyed it.

15 Dec, 2011

 

I found that happened to me,Rose.It was as if I had never stopped but do feel I have to practise.

Lovely Rose...sorry I didn't see it before. It's like a picture of heaven isn't it....wonderful to imagine sitting on that bench and taking in the sounds of the birds and the scent of the flowers...and then there's the colours...wow! :O x
