Keeping busy on the allotment


Great painting, Fran - I really like your style... the greenhouses are particularly eye-catching.

I like this a lot Fran.

Love the greenhouse

I like the lovely summery feeling.

Good one Fran

That’s such an uplifting painting. It just makes me feel happy. My sister has just taken an allotment so I’ll show her how it might look

A great painting of allotments, such a busy place when everything is growing.

I agree that this is a very happy painting with lots of lovely areas of interest to keep the eye roaming through the compositon

Thank you all so much for your lovely positive comments. It is always so pleasing to get feedback and you have all been so generous. Keep safe and well.

What a fantastic picture, Fran.

Many thanks Shirley. You are very kind. Best wishes.
