Given the autumn like weather we are experiencing at the moment, I thought I would re blog this post to remind us all that summer is just around the corner………
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.
Waterlilies painted at Monet’s Garden, Giverny.
A special July 4th spent with fellow artists Mariethe Salort and Bonnie Halsey Dutton at Couriers sur Sein, France. Watercolour/gouache.

Monet’s garden at Giverny, France. A very special moment when I was sitting alone in the garden on a beautiful early summer’s evening. watercolour/gouache.

From Conca dei Marini on the magnificent Amalfi Coast, Italy. watercolour/goache.
It’s always lovely to re visit my sketchbooks, because they take me back to a moment in time.
Clearly during all these moment, the hummingbirds were weaving their magic.
