New Wildlife Collections

I’ve been working on my website again and have a new wildlife art page as well as dragonfly and butterfly gifts, birds and pet lovers page.

It’s now possible to see matching products in one place with my original glass paintings and zazzle collections together. I’m pleased with the new look but always appreciate your comments!

Flower festival 

Every year there is a flower festival in St.Margarets church, Topsham, Devon in the UK.
I don’t always make it as it’s only on for 3 days but I did this year and thought I’d share some photographs of just a few of the wonderful displays.

The theme was health and fitness with funds raised for the local open air swimming pool. Quite a challenging theme for flower displays!

I love these bee friendly plants by bee keepers

A walk on Dartmoor

Anyone for tennis!

Last but not least sailing.

Update 

Can’t believe a month has gone by since my last post but of course a lot has been happening in the UK. Thoughts and prayers to everyone effected.

I find solace in nature and art and thankful that I’m able to enjoy both. I’ve started painting a new dragonfly colour combination. Sold 2 large vases, so introduced this colour scheme on wine glasses as well. They will be available on my website soon.

Pleased to say I eventually sorted my bee video and it is now on dreamstime.

 That’s it for now, melting in high heat (for the UK) so need a siesta! 

Latest News

Two exciting developments , I now have slide shows on my website and I’ve started to add some photographs to stock photography site Dreamstime.

The slide shows are thanks to Highton Ridley and a tool he’s developed to promote zazzle products. You can see them on my website here.

I’ve had a few photographs accepted on Dreamstime so far, some with animals and a nature theme naturally! I’m attempting to add my bee video, although that’s been a bigger learning curve getting it in the right aspect ratio and not having black bands!

Bee and Bird Song video 

My Ceanothus is in full bloom at the moment and the bees love it. So thought I’d share a video.

I managed to get some bird song in it too, although the 5th attempt with previous versions having neighbours talking, traffic noise & whistling!

Video is now available to download here  https://www.dreamstime.com/stock-video-bees-blossom-bird-song-video-honey-buzzing-around-ceanothus-bush-full-bloom-s-spring-purple-flowers-birds-video93313828#res18445732

See my Zazzle store for products featuring Ceanothus and bees.

New candle holders and a cute dog!

Spotted this doggy in the window from the bus. He’s so cute I had to share!

Art wise kingfisher’s have been popular and I’ve started some new candle holders. Thought the blue glass would work well with both kingfishers and dragonflies.

Planning on painting some fish on them next.
