Jazz apples and the turquoise mug – a painting a day

SOLD   7.5″x6″ 19cm x 15cm watercolour on heavyweight rag paper

This is not yet finished as I start writing , better not mess it up then, the apples are really tasty and it seemed sensible to buy some more so that I did not get greedy and eat the still life. Actually that did once happen, I was letting a room in the house I’d rented in Nicosia and this English girl came round to look at the room, sat down at the kitchen table where I painted and ate a clementine from the still life!!!!Even though I was desperate to split the rent I wasn’t that desperate….I think I was painting in the kitchen as it was huge and also it was one of the few warm rooms in a very cold house. Stone floors and uninsulated flat roofs mean you can be colder there than in freezy England. Naturally there was no heating as most of the year you did not need any.

The garden is growing at a terrifying rate the time to move plants and root out weeds is so short.

Today I moved a day lily to somewhere it will get a little more sun and flower for once. I also moved the species clematis which were in pots.
