Blessed by Mother Nature

On a recent dog walk with Lorraine we regularly passed a skip as a house was being cleared out.

I rescued this old wicker pram, I was so happy to give it a home.
I also managed to rescue some boards, you know the type that backs wardrobes, I struggled home with them must to the amusement of Lorraine. I then asked my neighbour Gordon to cut them up to workable sizes and today I decided to use one to paint on.
After gessoing it a couple of times I then painted and collaged this piece, as you can see it says "We are Blessed by Mother Nature". I just felt like doing this piece as all around I see the signs of Spring, snowdrops and daffodils (sure Dana sang a song starting off with those words)birds busy collecting for their nests, buds on the trees and it makes me feel so HAPPY.... so as an homage to the beauty of all that is around us I created this....

I am relatively pleased with the results, as I look at it I see places where it could be tweaked, but on the whole - yeah I like it.
Today is supermarket shopping day, banking etc. so don't think I will get much done, oh well the joys of life lol.
Whatever you are doing, whereever you are doing it have fun and accept my THANKS again for visiting xxx Dawn

The pram is a wonderful find! I wonder what you will do with it? Where you will place it? I also love your painting. I'm doing something similar right now with dried flowers I had pressed a few years ago. I'll be posting her soon.

And I am the lucky person to have the Mother Nature canvas in my hot sticky paws! She is amazing, so much texture and things to touch. I need to find a good place to display her :) Thankyou.
