This is another attempt to capture that wonderful acre of batchelor buttons that we saw in our stroll around Oxford. We saw the title of the field, "God's Acre" was on a hand-painted sign on the well a bit behind my view here.

We're harvesting again today for the hungry, and rewarding our volunteers with a light salad lunch. We'll be talking about herbs and using them in cooking - so we'll all make some lemon balm tea and lavender cookies.

Hope your day is grand!

  1. Simply beautiful! This was a delight to find. I love how you have captured all of the colors including the little bits of white that you've left.

  2. Another fabulous painting. I do hope you exhibit your work!

  3. Thank you both so much ...I am going to participate in an art festival in 2 weeks -- and thank you for your kind suggestion!
