Garden fun

The sun was shining and Polly and I were in high spirits when we had our photo shoot beside this, another of Anthony Garratt's outdoor paintings. This was a last minute dash to capture the moment before it was dispatched to the mainland after the year of of display on the island. The art trail comprised of four large pieces, three of which are now back with the artist and the fourth will remain here on permanent display. Each large painting was completed in just one day in situ in June 2014 and remained exposed to the elements for a full 12 months. Part of the exercise was to document the view and to see how the weather impacted on each piece. The fourth painting will feature in a session of mine in due course.

Knowing the riotous colours of the garden painting helped me to decided on a monochrome outfit which a touch of accessorising in metallics including the tights which are silver metallic and black. The fab gold bag was revived from years ago and is perfect with my favourite silver brogues. I certainly can't be accused of being understated today and as you can see that makes me very happy.
