Kathy Temean of 'Writing and Illustrating' contacted me the other day asking if I'd like to do an interview for her Illustrator Saturday section.
Read the interview...
I woke at six this morning. The sun felt hot through the window, the birds were shouting like crazies and so I thought I'd join in the fun. I tip-toed out leaving Iain to snore quietly to himself and made my way to the woods with my camera. Setting the camera to 'auto everything' I clicked and snapped happily like a fly-catchers bill. Here are just a couple from my bounteous batch. READ MORE ON HINTERLANDS
I came back from my walk and proceeded to delete all my Instagram accounts! She's gone mad! I hear you cry. Well, maybe, but I just can't keep up with all the online shenanigans! I have so many accounts on various platforms, it has got out of control, and I don't have the headroom to cope with it all! Now that I've abandoned the Insta ship, I can concentrate more on my own sites. It is very sad, I had made several lovely connections on the platform, but it was starting to take too much of a toll on my time. I'd ignored this blog and my photography website for a long time. From now on they are going to be my main places of self expression. I still advertise my products on Pinterest and run a couple of Tumblr blogs... I have a lot of online activities to keep me busy. If you are interested you can find all my links updated at petrabrown.co.uk, if on the other hand you are not interested, I really don't blame you... it's all too complicated- so many sites and platforms! Just make sure you subscribe to this blog by pressing the RSS feed thingy and all will be well. I intend to put all my creative online inputs here.
And so I'll finish this post with a Scooby-Doo, just because I can...
He's the first of my ‘Six Fan-Art Challenge’ set. As a kid I was ever hopeful that one episode the spooks would turn out to be real, but they always turned out to be some shady dude in a disguise. So I have made some real spooks for Scooby-Doo, Petra style.
I’ve been so busy I’ve only been able to get two done- Dr Who and Scooby Doo. Hopefully, once I’ve finished the project that I’m working on at the moment I can get the other four characters done. Apologies to the folks on Instagram who gave me a great list of characters to choose from... and sorry for upping and offing!
Last evening I went for a painful stumble through the woods behind our house. Painful, because for some strange reason my left knee has decided to act up. I have no memory of damaging it, but it seems to know something I don't. Anyway, I was stumbling along, tripping over bramble and ivy stems- the jokers of the woods, grunting, puffing and crying out 'Oo! Ow! Ooph! Ouch!' and various oaths which I'll spare you here, when I came across this lovely scene decorated with these fabulous ferns.
Oo, matron, look at my big radish!
French Breakfast 3. My very first radish harvest. Taste= juicy, hot and peppery. So good!
Really easy to grow, and very quick. If you have a little piece of ground, or room for a pot, consider growing a radish, or two :o)
