I don’t like football

No point in pretending

That I love the game

I understand the offside rule

I can explain it

But why should I?

I admired England’s Women

Playing in the European Cup

That was refreshing.

But Premier league?

Expensive, over hyped, boring,

Is my opinion.

And the World Cup venue?

Inequality and slave labour?

A Man’s paradise

Where women are second class

Rainbows are rebuked

Sports washing is preventing

Real freedoms.

Enough said.

Pattern

Drawn in ArtRage oils. A picture made up of dots then mirrored to give it symmetry. This took about half an hour to draw the pattern (a quarter of the image). I used the metallic pen option. The colours are darker with this but you get a rippled affect on the surface. I decided to draw a rainbow of colours that gradually move across the screen. It could also be used as a pattern on fabrics.

Reflected on brushes

I saw this rainbow light reflected on my brushes this morning. It was being caused by a holographic sketchpad that was on the cupboard next to the brushes. The pad has been there for ages but I’ve never seen this before, it must just be because of the angle of the light. I might try and base a drawing or painting on it. Today’s

Five years ago today

I don’t know what I was doing but I know where I was. At Etruria Flint Mill by the Trent and Mersey canal. How do I know? This picture came up on my phone memories. I love the rainbow flies across the sky with one brilliant end behind the chimney. It looks like a multicoloured comet. I Ts interesting how the area of cloud under rainbows looks paler than the area above. It must be part of the optics of rain storms.

Rainbow

After the rain, the rainbow. The base of it was really bright. The rain came down so hard and fast, a river of water came down the hill. The forecast is for possible thunderstorms tomorrow following the arrival of ex hurricane Epsilon in the North Atlantic. There have already been strong winds and the leaves have been flying off the trees. Autumn has arrived with a bang!

Rainbow

When there is heavy rain overhead but a low sun I know there will be a rainbow somewhere. I looked out of the front door and saw this. I got a bit damp and had to change the exposure to get a halfway decent photo. But it came out OK. We also had a few rumbles of thunder, but it’s not been that bad… Last week the rain was far heavier. Tomorrow might be worse.

Green woman?

I love green. I’ve done a painting of myself as a green woman, and this is a selfie I did in the garden today. I was trying to complete a challenge with a group of friends to post an image of myself with different colours of the rainbow. Today the colour was green. I started out wrapping a pale green scarf round my head, but it didn’t work very well, so I went outside and stuck my head through the leaves of various bushes.

Are you doing any strange challenges or being prompted to do things you wouldn’t normally do?

Art you enjoying doing some crafts or art work. What occupies your time in these odd times?
