Berries, Feather, Maple leaf – a painting a day

I found the most extraordinary picture on the web it is by an artist from Myanmar or Burma, Win Pe Myint,  he is both a painter and a Botanist as I am. It has, I am sure, a wealth of story in the objects chosen. The postcard in the foreground is Picasso’s ‘ Acrobat with Ball’, it has the most concentrated air of still contemplation I have seen in a picture, and it has a very quiet lemon in there too.

Here is the link:


Yesterdays picture is another in the series of things picked up in this autumn, here are some berries, the feather of a green woodpecker and a distorted maple leaf. I am putting all of these for sale on my Lemonaday-shop as it forms a permanent Gallery. Or rather it should do, having checked the links they all seem to have broken.

No1 son should return today, I dread to think what state he will be in the weather has been foul for the last two days. Still no news could be good news…

153 a painting a day or three a month if you are lucky

    I think this is my favourite of your recent “found” series-it is the diagonal arrangement, the beauty of the shadows and the soft lemon of the maple leaf I particularly like.
    The link was fascinating and had me gazing at the shelves in my kitchen where I have some blue and white china and glass and making me think about setting up a similar still life on them.

      Thanks threadspider, I was especially pleased to find a green woodpecker feather.
