‘Frantic’, ‘Baby’ & Fragrant Roses (red & blue )

I had decided at the start of this Blog to avoid photos of family and friends, and stick to Illustration as the focus of my posts. But in the interests of introducing myself and my environment I decided to put up a few pictures.Here are my favourite sheep ( as we live on a sheep farm) and some of the fragrant roses from my garden.



“The best things in life are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life”. – Robert Louis Stevenson

    Love the PHOTOS!!! I think you should leave these last few posts up for a while before you do another one, just untill more people see your blog, because they are such nice posts, and we want everyone to see these before you add new ones :) – We are just about ready to move the site to africanpainting.com, so I will write a longer comment and remove this one at that time.

    Gorgeous roses! Together with the quote from Stevenson they somehow give meaning and substance to a day of physical work in the rose garden and a quick sandwich in between.
