Not sure who i said i would blog my hall windows to, but here they are anyway. The colour of the sunflower is stronger than the photo. I painted these years ago now and they have not faded at all

yes, the sunflower is in the window next to the door. i am think about painting a garden scene on the landing window to go with the butterflies etc my sister made for my birthday. I would like real stained glass, but this is cheaper!

cheaper and no one else can have one.... I like the idea of hanging the creatures near a painted window.... Is the leadwork the stuff you can buy on a roll, or painted on?

No you didn't, I sorted the sunflower out for you because you couldn't work the computer programme.

These are stunning!!!
I think my favourite is the Iris at the bottom... the basic lines in it remind me of a Van Gogh.
