A set of three hand-coloured cards are now in the online shop – being hand-coloured each one will be unique. My favourite things? Red roofs and washing blowing on the line 🙂
The link to them in the shop is NewCards
Just to let you know that the Winter Card Set is now all sold out. I will be adding new designs shortly 🙂
Well, i’m astounded to say that all of these cards have now been sold, they’ve been extremely popular both online and in the studio.
As ever your support is much appreciated. Jane x
December: I walked down the snow covered lane to find the rose bush. It was sharply cold and slippery underfoot and I felt the ice crunch and crack, but the tarmac was reassuring rough nevertheless.
The House Sparrows are fat and fluffed up in the hedge, chirping noisily, and overhead a single silhouetted Starling fluttered it’s wings and sang to itself.
The sky, for this moment was blue. The rose hedge stood stark and brown and my eyes searched for the remembered red of the hips. They are much reduced and shrivelled but still add welcome punches of colour into the bleached ochre and pale straw of winter.
A skein of geese pass over, low enough that the dry rustle of wings is audible. Water drips into a hidden ditch and a passing car disturbs the slush.
The Starling’s song fills my mind as I turn towards home. The sky darkens to pewter as the next hail shower sweeps in from the Atlantic.
In search of roses Shrivelled red hips punctuate A darkening sky
Cards available in the shop now 🙂
I have finished the first of the boards that I was commissioned to do for The Failte Centre in Stornoway; it’s difficult to get an idea of the size from the photograph! And so on to the second board…
