Horse Chestnut

Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastaneum)

During the last years our chestnut trees have become more and more infested with the horse-chestnut leaf miner (Cameraria ohridella). Somehow a sad sight to see.

Rowan (Sorbus aucuparia)

#5 in the series with a former one hidden beneath a piece of paper to keep you guessing. ;)

Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa)

My favourite so far – beautiful colours.

Beech (Fagus sylvatica)

I promised leaves – here they are. #3 of the mystery sampler with backstitching done.

I’ll keep hiding the neighboring motifs with a piece of paper so the overall layout is kept a secret. :)

Holly (Ilex aquifolium)

The second motif from my mystery sampler. I’ve already started #4, but #3 still needs a little backstitch work.

Some say that artists are always making ‘themselves’ in their work.  Much of my early visual art work was indeed self portraiture.  It makes sense since I was studying the figure from a very classical point of view, and as I was the model who was always available any time I was ready to work, self portraits were a common occurrence.  304 more words


Chanterelles - and a request

Chanterelles (Craterellus cibarius, syn. Cantharellus cibarius)

After finishing this one I got carried away. My needle is running hot while it is flying through #2 and #3, still hidden beneath the paper. 203 more words
