Hummingbirds










I've recently been feeling a little fed up, waiting patiently for the sun to  rear it's head and be able to sit in the garden without jumpers and a coat to keep me warm.  It's May and day after day of rain and grey skies are now starting to take it's toll on my mood.....i need a little sunshine!
So, fed up with the grey skies, i decided to create some prints bursting with colour and pattern, to blow away the gloom. Layering several plates with vibrant colours to produce these tropical prints.  Incidentally, i also heard that it is Save our Butterflies week, but i fear the cold weather isn't helping much. Roll on summer! Amanda x

Here, here. Although at the time of reading this the sun has poked through and warmed us all up at last.

This seems a new style with the overlaying of colours and print. Quite busy and vibrant.

These are great Amanda! You are truly a very special and talented artist. The sun came to us yesterday. It didn't come last summer so we been waiting soo long for this. I understand you are waiting too and until the sun reaches you I send you a lot of sunbeams!

These prints are stunning! And they go very well with a hot, summer's day (or at least, a good illusion of one).

Beautiful! :)

Let's hope your vibrant prints encourage the sun to stay around! They are lovely.

Thank You, funny we had the most gorgeous day today, so wonderful to have some sun at last : )
Line Katrin, thank you, sounds like the Norwegian summer is as slow to start as ours. Sending some of our glorious sunshine northwards to you too x

It seems you got your wish for sunny days at last! Your prints remind me of Japanese silks, lovely!

I love your prints!
It's such a pity we have had no Summer weather this year in England. Just rain, rain and more rain.
