We are enjoying wall to wall spring sunshine in London so am re blogging these images from different sketchbooks. All the sketches remind me of very special moments. Janet

My Life as an Artist (2)

The following images are from one of the many sketchbooks I have filled over the years.   They show moments in my life when I was sitting in warm summer sunshine…doing what I enjoy most …which is to commune with nature and paint.
