Weekly Photos 2017. 45/52.

I keep finding painted rocks in the park, here is one I spotted this week. Making penguin snowglobes and taking photos which would never happen, don’t worry about the penguin, they don’t share the same land as polar bears! The silver tree at the St Louis Art Museum is one of my favorites. Very red trees at Forest Park. The Grand Basin at Forest Park. Happy Monday x

1. A lovely orange fungi spotted in the woods this week. 2. Dried hydrangea flowers gathered on a dog walk. 3. The last tomato before the cold weather came in with a vengeance. 4. We went to a great estate sale this weekend, I liked the box of cutlery but I didn’t need it! 5. This phone caught my eye, it was behind an open cupboard and not for sale, but it took me right back to chatting with my friends on a phone fastened into the wall. I like the unintended orange theme this week. Happy Monday x

1. I have been enjoying painting with ink and a sumi brush, using vintage photos as inspiration in my daily painting sketchbook. 2. The archery club hut on Forest Park. 3.

The planetarium at the St Louis Science Centre is the same colour as the sky. Happy Monday x

I saw this rather old jar sticking out of the creek bed as I walked through the woods this week. I wonder what was in it all those years ago? We spotted this bright lichen on a dog walk this week. Matching funghi. I photo’d this church against the city scape with a view to drawing it, I haven’t sketched it yet, but I will (honest). It has not been super cold this week but this ice was impressive. This bark which has dried out off the tree looks like paper in a very thick book. We found this jar in the mud, it contained beauty cream in the 1930’s and there it was, intact but missing the lid which I suppose had disintegrated over eighty years. I hope you had a lovely week, we found lots of stuff which is always an exciting time in our house! Happy Monday x

1. We went to Route 66 State Park this weekend and explored in the sunshine! 2. A naturally formed terrarium in an old bottle. 3. Yay for sunshine over the fields. 4. I climbed out of bed early on Saturday to go to a local estate sale and scored this ace tin of buttons and buckles. 5. I also bought a whole fabulous box of vintage travel ‘accordion’ postcards from the same sale.  I bought them to draw and paint on, but I am not sure I can bring myself to! 6 & 7. Two sides of the same painting at the St Louis Art Museum, I love the two colour palettes. 8. One of my favourite paintings at the Art Museum, cakes by Wayne Thiebaud. Happy Monday x

Weekly Photos 2/52 2017

I missed week one of weekly photos this year because I was deciding whether to carry on with weekly photos.  I decided, no I was not going to and it threw off my whole blogging week, so I thought I would reinstate the weeklies! 1. I spotted this Old Man’s Beard fungi on a fallen tree this week, apparently they are edible, but even if I was super sure I could eat a wild mushroom, I don’t think I could. 2. The roses on this bush are still pretty even when they are dry and crispy. 3. We had a small ice storm on Friday and lots of schools and businesses were closed.  The trees were coated in a layer of clear ice and these bracket mushrooms also had an ice coat. 4. These berries look dramatic in their frozen cluster. 5. This sculpture on the Delmar Loop looks ready for some ice! 6. Coffee sacks at Blueprint coffee in The Loop.  I had a latte and it was one of the best I have …
