Black and white and framed again

And here is another piece of the Cotswold Hills in black and white pattern. I have in my minds eye the patterns of footpaths, hedgerows and contours as they wind across the hills close to my house and - as seen from the air as birds might fly - haphazard and somewhat random.


It's similar to the last - framed and still small but this time with a printed motif to suggest stone walls. I gave the last to a friend - always a pleasure.

This time it's to be a small present for my son. I just hope he likes it ...

    1. Thank you, Maggi. The effect of randomness was what I was after - though I had to think about it as I did it!

  5. I like this piece AND the framing. Your description of your inspiration makes me want to get outside and go for a hike! Happy Holidays.

    1. No hiking round here this Christmas - very strong winds and lots of rain forecast - not even any snow to make everywhere look beautiful.

    1. He doesn't know it but I'm trying him out for a much larger piece. I know just where it could go in his house ... we'll see ...!
