Spring: a time of colour.

I love this time of the year… there are colours everywhere.



Trees awaken from their deep slumber and their fresh green and red leaves adorn the branches.

The sweet scent of the lilac and the feathery leaves of the weeping willow, by the river.

Romantic purple and grey clouds lie heavy in the sky and add to the wonderful show of colour.

Spring: a time of new growth, fresh hope and long days.

Enjoy it whilst it is here.

Thanks for dropping by.

Are you into computer art? Take a look at these.

butterfly-blog-with-c.jpgIf I can’t get my paints and brushes out to play with, then I love to indulge in a little computer art. There are some amazing apps available these days and they don’t cost the earth.

The above image was generated using  my photographs and SuperPhoto –   the full version, which was less than a fiver.

Here are some more.

That’s enough of my photographs/ artwork for one post.

If you get a chance to try out the numerous photography apps, I’d recommend it. Only… just be prepared to be playing with them a longgggggg time! They’re extremely addictive.

Thanks for dropping by and have a great evening.

Venturing out of the woods.

forestBack in March of 2014 I was in the process of setting up a new blog. Eventually, I settled on another name, Write Dorne. On this blog I write about my life as a freelance writer.  Click on Write Dorne, if you want to take a peek at this blog; everyone is welcome.

But, I also have a passion for photography and painting.  Just recently I feel that my artwork and photographs have been detracting from my writing, on my blog.

So, when I realised that this abandoned blog  actually had visitors, likes and comments; and after I’d kicked myself for being so stupid, I decided that I would get to work on here.

This is not to say that my artwork [laughable] and photographs won’t appear on Write Dorne: they will; and sometimes posts from there will guest on here.

I just think that it’s time to come out of the woods and separate things a little. That’s the plan anyhow.

So, thanks for visiting and have a great day.

Dorne 🙂
