Many of us paint, draw, embroider. dry, make floral arrangements with the plants we grow.  Let's share it.  Here to start you all of is what an 84 year old is doing with her plants and garden.

Happymarion, those are fabulous, what a talented lady you are. I'm afraid if I started to try and paint it would look like it was done by 5 year old! I wonder if there are others on here who are talented, will keep my eye on this thread.

I know there are as the thread i started on June1st called Summer has arrived has mention of them.  All you need to do is a line a day, Sue.  Gardeners have to be observant and that goes for art too.

Hi  Marion, your paintings are lovely, thanks for posting them.  Celebration made me smile

Happy Marion, you always start the best threads! I love your paintings, especially the May one. I shall post some of mine soon.

Lovely, Marion. Looking forward to seeing Artjak's. I gave my favourite one I did to my daughter. I'll hve a look in my folder.

Spring, but not very recent as I don't have much time nowadays.

Wow Liz, you are really talented, that painting is beautiful, I love the white narzissus (spelling?!), have some of those in my garden and there are wild fields of them in certain parts of Switzerland.

Thank you all so much. This is what i wanted - contributions to the forum that show how much plant life influences the creative parts of our life.  I write poems inspired by my gardening and "walks on the wild side".  I should have included poetry writing too - who does not quote a "Host of golden daffodils" whenever they mention Wordsworth?   So do not be surprised to see some poetry on this thread.  I love the delicacy of Busy-Lizzie's painting.

Busy lizzie, that is SO beautiful; so delicate, thank you for posting it.

 This is a boring piece of Ikea furniture.

 The last beetroot of summer (to be sung to the tune of 'The last rose of Summer)

 The painting from which my 'icon' is a detail. Can't get the colours to come out rich enough with a digital camera; will have to try and get some tuition on that.

Lovely paintings busy lizzie and artjak

The last beetroot is really beautiful

Great paintings, Artjak. We seem to have some hidden geniuses on here.

10/06/2013 at 13:27

Many thanks, Swiss S and Hollie H

Artjak, are you a professional artist? Would explain your name too. Your painting is beautiful. I feel honoured to have been complimented by you. I love paintings, but realistic ones. When I was a young student nurse in London I used to spend a lot of my time off in the Tate and the National Gallery.

10/06/2013 at 14:11

Artjak, i tend to paint any surface that looks boring too!  I do love your work.

10/06/2013 at 15:13

I;'m feeling totally inadequate.   What a talented bunch of people you are.  I know my limits.
