I loved painting this small, colourful squash.
Lots of interest in my work at this busy craft fair in Leatherhead over the weekend, with some good card sales.
The lovely poster advertising our exhibition with my yellow and red tulips featured on the far right and a view of the exhibition below.
I was delighted to sell the painting shown above based on wild flowers I drew on a walking holiday in Switzerland entitled ‘Flowers from Swiss Meadows’.

These sunflowers were growing abundantly on an allotment. The seed heads are left for the birds to feed on during the winter months. I love the variety of blacks and browns in the dead stalks, leaves and heads which are quite complex to paint.
It’s October and time to paint another squash before they disappear for another year.
This is a small branch of developing cones from a Blue Atlas Cedar found on a walk through the arboretum at Exeter University.
