Good Gourd

Hip Hip Hooray! On Tuesday I went to Virginia's to paint.
A lovely vignette of gourds and hawthorn and damsons and daisies.
Lunch was a fantastic risotto of spinach and pumpkin inspired by this Jamie Oliver recipe so yummy. Followed by Harrie's sweet and tasty apple struedel

Everything was warm,
 the welcome, the colours, my fellow artists the weather...all happy gold and orange infused.

Here is where I am up to - you might think me terribly slow, but the finished piece is much bigger than it looks and I like to draft things very carefully - I am visualising Virginia rolling her eyes at me! Tee hee.

On another note, "bear with" ( nod to Miranda, couldn't resist!)
I have been technically challenged this week - keep losing my internet connection, aaarghhhhh - so forgive me if you were thinking I was ignoring you! Naughty computer has much to answer for!
