#177 Avocado

I love, love, love the green inside avocados. Did you know the human eye gains a greater appreciation of the colour green as it ages. When we are young we favour reds and oranges interesting eh? Or, that could be a load of old tosh!

#174 Spoon in Pan

Oh do please excuse me I nearly went to bed without doing today's daily picture. Eek! As I am a tad tired you will forgive both the lateness of the painting and leaving the washing up until tomorrow!

#172 Vintage Car

We were fortunate enough to find ourselves in a vintage car convoy. This one was last in line before us and it looked great in the lush green Cotswold landscape, green on green! I hope we didn't spoil their vintage fun in our 2004 vintage Micra!

#170 Light through Blinds

I love how the light shines through the blinds in our front room. It casts some great line shadows on things, here it is making a rather pleasing series of dashes on the chimney breast.

#169 Batter

I made the worst ever sponge cake today, half uncooked muffin and half scrambled eggs. No idea why. But I did like this ring of cake batter in the hob, with some flour at the bottom.

#166 Pull Cord

I liked the tomato plant next to the shadow on the wall so much from yesterday I felt it needed a partner. This is the purple wall in the bedroom and our lovely turned wooden light switch pull thingy we got from Westonbirt arboretum a few years ago. Good background and a good shadow.

#164 Kitchen Tiles

I realised I did have more tiled surfaces! Hopefully I will start to feel better soon and attempt some more challenging subjects! But these tiles have been a nice simple challenge for my reduced capacity..
