‘Lyla’ ‘My dear friend Lizzie asked me if I would paint the enchanting Lyla a new addition to her extended family. Under pressure from other commitments that had deadlines I’m afraid that the delays to Lyla’s picture is now ‘A Once upon a Time Fairy’ as she is now a little older. However with her picture beside me all this time I was able to study her beautiful features and her innocence to enchant. I was looking for a rare and beautiful butterfly to compliment her and felt that the silver-studded blue that flies from mid June to late July in Cornwall and the New forest would be perfect. So here is Lyla the Silver Studded Fairy’

Motivational leadership as Charleigh starts to build her Snow Bear single handed, first she is joined by Callie cat to assist her then her Dad and Mum, and when finally Snowbear joined the family it was a moment of utter exhileration in the brisk winter day as Charleigh decided that he had a sweet tooth and a taste for winegums!
A walk in our local park today, a moment to see the early movement of buds , and the result of so much rain, a chance to reflect on Epiphany Sunday, twelfth night and the celebrations of Christmas past and hope for the future
