We checked out the local Vintage Craft fair at the church hall. Unfortunately more shabby than Shabby Chic.

Sunflower – Digital Painting

Sunflower - Digital Painting by Mark Wallis at The Vibes
It’s the height of summer, so let’s see some sunflowers! This is another attempt at digital painting, this time showing my source material. Below is the edited photograph which it’s based on.

And here is the crappy old iPhone picture which the whole thing sprung from. It’s a challenge to see which pictures have potential, and which ones really need deleting.

Hazy Shade of Summer

Little ginger cat

It’s a hazy shade of summer down on the allotment, everything’s blooming, colourful chaos. I slipped through security and wandered into the sunset, meeting a gorgeous little ginger cat who rolled around and posed for pictures. How do cats know it’s a camera? Little Ginge reminded me of the Late Great Sparky, my beloved super-sized tom cat who features elsewhere on The Vibes. The bees were buzzing in the dying rays of the sun, refusing to pose for the camera – just too plain busy! Good to see so many of them.

Pimm’s on the Allotment

Oh how terribly English! This week I went back to Shaun’s allotment, which is now in full bloom. Because Brit Summer is such an unpredictable lass, the nation tends to go slightly crazy when the sun comes out, and you all know how I like my rays. I grab the beautiful details with my phone, usually at random, and record them here so you can all see how I view the world. It’s not a charmed life that I lead, so I appreciate those little glimpses of beauty – nature in full parade.

Lying in the Grass

Daisies in Chorlton Park

Chorlton Park

When the sun shines, I worship. British weather is reliably unpredictable so the chance to roll around in the grass while I turn a strange shade of beetroot is something to  be cherished. I watch dogs playing, butterflies skip round my head and my mind plays Perfect Day by Lou Reed. “Drink sangria in the park…” Mine’s a banana and strawberry smoothie, thanks. On the news, many thousands of people are rioting over the right to keep their green spaces…and their rights in general. Every second of peace, here, is a luxury to me.
