Bee in hollyhock

Playing with the picture of the bee in the hollyhock I took at Charleston

beein the SumoPaint app as shared by iHanna

by reducing divisions to 4, I got this



and then by increasing the divisions I discovered some perky little Circle Dancing Bee Angels


which I sent by email to a friend who is far away and low on energy at the moment to perk her up!

I have become fascinated by finding faces in the patterns that emerge – here is another kinda light-being from the creamy hollyhock


I have an urge to create some paintings with these pictures as a starting point – but not today the garden is calling. . . .


Charleston Farmhouse

Charleston Farmhouse near Lewes has a fabulous garden – profusion is the word that comes to mind.

The inside of the house is a must see too, we were not able to take photos but you can see some here. Plenty of inspiration for doodles and fabric design.

And then some playing with the hollyhock pictures.
