Breathe deeply and whisper…

I breathe deeply and settle the air
In my stomach, and shut my eyes
The faint scent of beginning on
The top of the morning mist
I whisper to the bare earth
This year, this year, this year
 
Kiss me on the forehead,
Let the butterflies break
From their cocoons and dance in my 
Stomach and I’ll shut my eyes,
Breathe deeply and whisper
This year, this year, this year
– Natalie Wise

A few weeks ago a group of friends hiked up Great Mell Fell and Little Mell Fell, where I shot this Bog Cotton. They are two of the smallest fells in the Lake District, but from the summit of LMF you have this incredible vista of the outer lying mountains. Because of the short 40mins climb required, I'm going to pop back late summer for a sunset shot. #VSCOcam #lakedistrict #blackandwhitephotography #bogcotton #recce I've always had a very healthy obsession with stationery, when I started painting that progressed to art supplies. I'm just enjoying my new Neocolor II oil pastels before I dive in.. #VSCOcam #neocolorII #oilpastels #doitfortheprocess #calledtobecreative All of the images I've shot on my iPhone this week have been shades of orange, peach or apricot, I think my subconscious wants me to paint with this colour and I must obey.  #VSCOcam #colourcrush #calledtobecreative #doitfortheprocess #apricots I spend the best part of yesterday morning in this brilliant second hand book store in Alnwick, thumbing through Penguin modern classics and looking at the beautiful illustrations on the covers of poetry & children's books from the 70's  which had a lovely folky feel to them. I bought an Art history book and a Albert Camus paperback. #barterbooks #alnwick #bookstore Stopped by the Pick your own Farm shop on my way home yesterday afternoon. My kitchen is full of the sweet fragrance of early summer🍓🍓🍓. #VSCOcam #strawberries #farmshop #summervibes Home on the Northumberland coast this weekend, visiting the Alnmouth Art Festival. Met some fantastic artists & photographers today. Dear North Sea - I miss you 💙 #VSCOcam #Northumberland #AlnmouthArt
