6th Day of Gratitude

 Today's prompt is  Something in Autumnal Colours.  

I walked over the park thinking that I would easily find something to share for today's prompt and I did take a few photos but beautiful though the trees were, I wanted to share something a little different.  So I have chosen this


It's a picture that Paul drew recently.  He used to go to an art class which has had to adapt due to Covid restrictions, and it is now a WhatsApp group where the teacher gives the students their prompt for the week and then they have a week to upload a picture for her to critique.  He has drawn this using watercolour pencils and it is a really good representation of the trees turning colour beside the pond in front of the local church.

Let's just say that if I were sharing a picture of something I had drawn, it would not have been worthy of being showcased in a frame 🤣

PS Daily update - Day two of Lockdown 2.  Today we will be having our 3rd Covid test as part of the national statistics programme.  The person who called to book the appointment asked me if we were likely to be in this afternoon, which made me wonder if it was a trick question as clearly the whole idea of lockdown is that people are not going out!

Paul's pencil watercolour is very good. He must have received top marks on it. Good luck with your 3rd COVID test. We do a daily wellness check in app & it's suppose to advise us if a confirmed COVID case is nearby.

Happy Weekend.

So glad you shared some of Paul's talent with us. Lovely work. I think they need to be paying you guys for all the Covid tests you are having to endure. Although, my test was better than I expected it to be. But even so, I wouldn't want to have one every other day or so. Hope you continue to be negative.

He has such a talent, Paul! I hope he is buoyed up by all our positive comments. I love the loose pencil work of this and his vibrant colours - no wonder you have it on the wall. Definitely something to be proud of, both of you, because of course behind every successful man, is ... I'm sure you know the rest :).
