This blog is moving!
At last I have discovered a way to have my website and blog all in one place.
So from now on all new blog posts will be on my new website.
I'm still writing about the same sort of things, and you can still find the old posts on this page.

Artist and Gardener

Being an artist and a gardener doesn't always work.

It's the age old problem , one distracts you from another. If I'm gardening I want to paint what I see and if I paint in my own garden I want to pull up the weeds and water the plants and move and cut back stuff. This picture of my greenhouse I painted some time ago. In my very detailed painting period. I thought of it as I was watering the tomatoes and pulling out the grass in the floor of my greenhouse yesterday.
