Matthew's 6x9 Buffalo, oil on board. "I saw these Buffalo in Zimbabwe. The light was fantastic but so frustrating. Just as the light gets really great, you are forced to leave the park."

Oil by Julia, 16x24. Nothing shows heat more than images from Namibia. Intense hazy sun reflecting against the shimmering pans make an exciting painting.

Snowy Egret in Surf, Oil by Matthew, 18x24- "I made a wonderful discovery on our recent trip to England. Little Egrets! Since I've been in America Little Egrets have populated Southern England. We saw a group of three every morning patrolling the shoreline. Although, this is an American Snowy, I was definitely inspired by those English Egrets."

Matthew's oil, 8x14, "The Bergamont are from my garden. They are very tatty, they are invasive, they flop and always succumb to mildew. But I love them and so do the hummingbirds.

Matthew's oil painting, 7 1/2x18. "It's no secret to anyone who knows me that I love flowers and gardening. I grew these tulips for Steph, my lovely step-daughter."

Painting gone wrong................hate when that happens!

Here's a close up.

We had house guests last week. John and Susie Seerey-Lester. This is what John was doing while I showed Susie how to make the frame. His lovely painting was of Matthew's orchids. It was a great visit, we all had lots of fun!
