any guesses as to where i was?

this is the most photographed statue

did you know?
....its the amazing vigeland park in oslo, norway
work of one man gustav vigeland...
all 758 figures were modelled in full size by students...
just him

showing what it is to be human...

a place i have wanted to see for many many years
and finally went with my lovely daughter

there were also my favourite trees

...lots of places to sit outside in the snow and relax!!

and of course ....shops!

i so loved painting the autumn roses in the previous post that i have continued the themes

in addition i was thinking about the celtic year...
the turning of the wheel
about the letting go of the past and welcoming the new

autumn inspiration

the sun has been shining and the forest is amazing
really the best autumn i have ever seen..and i will post some photos

i have been inspired by a wonderful gift i received from india
much much better photos of her eco dyed textiles on her own lovely website

also inspired by some roses i painted when fresh but much prefer now

not that have got around to much textile work yet...but am certainly thinking about it...

and this is what happened
