The Wistful Landscape

How did August arrive so quickly?
It seems as if the seasons are all mixed up , last week like autumn and now back to summer.
The last few days have been humid, yet there is a distinct Autumn feel to the trees, the leaves already yellowing, many on the ground.
Our Magnolia tree however is in bloom again, perhaps confused by our weather?

Last week I visited The Royal Academy Of Arts Summer Show in London which is on display until the 15th August.
It was a day of discovery and exciting to see the work of many artists shown altogether.

My sketchbook is filling up with many drawings and I have just started another two large textile pieces which I hope to show you soon.

Have a good week.

Wonderful work M ... so wistful as you say perhaps for summer almost over but not quite. Would love love love a peep in your sketchbooks. Have a lovely August. Are you going to FOQ? I'm going Thursday

Love, Carolyn xo
