Recently many of my readers in the UK will have suffered floods and gale force winds. These are two of my felts which reflect our weather.
Last week our 36 x 12 feet shed flew over the fence and landed on our poly tunnel in the vegetable patch. Unfortunately our pigs and sheep were in it at the time. None of them were hurt but I think they were all a little shocked!
This one which I called 'stormy seas' was inspired by the gale force winds we had the previous week. They coincided with high, spring tides and the sea in nearby Aberystwyth swept most of the historic promenade away. The beach I am depicting here is where I usually walk our dogs. It is called Llanrhystud beach. The sea washed away the flood defences and flooded the fields nearby.
I am hoping that our weather will improve soon and inspire some sunny and perhaps floral artwork!
