Painted leaves

The beautifully painted leaves on The Green Dragonfly today prompted me to find the photos of the leaf doodling I did on Nevis.DSC_1602

I never did discover the name of the plant this leaf came from, it grew near the sea.

Each morning I would create little arrangements on the table on the verandaDSC_1422

I can’t stop arranging things – even the loose tiles in the swimming pool could not escape

some of which I doodled on wondering if they would combine with a seahorse to make little hanging decorations

Mudlarking by the Thames

dsc_0003

On Sunday I went mudlarking by the Thames in London – oh happy me!

It was a glorious sunny day spent with 30 other lovely larkers – I can highly recommend it.

See more photos and a link to Thames Explorer Walks on my Beach Clean Art blog – here.

This is what I managed to collect and bring home on the train in a full backpack that weighed 16lbs.

What is it about beach-combing –  I am supremely happy and relaxed whilst collecting, and the next best bit is washing and arranging all the pieces. I’d happily spend all day arranging, sorting and rearranging all these little artefacts all connected to human activity  over hundreds of years.
