November 20 posting. Addition and Corrections

 First 'London by Night' postings should be with me or Sue by Wednesday 30 th December not Tuesday 30th.

Due to a technical glitch an image by Priscilla Worley, which she originally did in August was posted a second time and not attributed. But here is the "Tree of Life" which Priscilla has done for November; an image of her grandson in Australia climbing a eucalyptus tree. Definite Joan Eardley influence.

Diane Umemoto

Westbury Court Gardens in Gloucestershire, 300 year old tree

and Avis Dennis

Our next innings will be on Tuesday 30 December, the subject is "London by Night'. Pics to me or

Some regulars are also doing a similar subject for an on line class, so this is either an incentive to develop a picture or alternatively an easy way of using the same image twice and getting credit twice..

Late entries for November will be posted, but meanwhile Happy Christmas artists. Hope Santa brings those art materials.

November 2020 innings and late postings from October

 I hope you are all ready for the 'Tree of Life' innings on Tuesday 17 November.

The Tree of Life is an ancient and universal symbol appearing in religions and myths from all over the world, including Judaism, Islam, and Norse mythology. I found Wikipedia very useful on the background and there are of course images that can be found on Google Images. Klimt and Kiefer are amongst the artists who have drawn upon the imagery. Yggdrasil is the Tree of Life in Norse mythology.

Moira Coupe produced this image for an Islington Art Society on line Zoom crit session:

Pictures to me for posting on the blog.

Meanwhile there are some late October images, some of which many of you have already seen but have not been included in the blog before.

Diana Butement sent these images from Langton Matravers in Dorset;
