It's getting chilly and the days are growing shorter, so here is a little piece of late summer to warm your day.
I made several large mixed media canvas during the summer. Most for the Skyeworks Gallery on the Isle of Skye. This one however went to a dear friend who loves Skye.
For those who have been following me you will notice the thistles again ( My favourite summer theme)
Inspiration Avenues theme this week is 'faces' and I thought it would be nice to throw two woolly faces into the mix!
The Highlands of Scotland are filled with them...White dots scattered over the heather coloured landscape.The soft bleating often the only sound to break the silence.
Every turn in the road ...they are there....
|This one was just waiting by the roadside waiting to be photographed!|
You can go for quite a few days without seeing a human face in these parts, but few days go past without crossing paths with a 'Scottish blackface' or a 'Cheviot'.
|They don't have a lot of road sense!|
They morphed into sheep! At this stage black faced sheep, but I didn't like the black, so...
I like them better as 'Cheviot ' white faced sheep. You can also see here one of the little collaged Dragonflies. The day after I finished the canvas I saw a beautiful dragonfly on the path down to the sea, he was gorgeous.
I wished I could take better closeups...but you can just about make him out!
The thistles are collaged with handmade paper.
I have a couple more Summer Skyescapes left to show you, which I will do over the next few weeks.
Linking up to Inspiration Avenue and Paint party Friday this week.
