Painting a garden

Gardening to me is pretty much approached in the same way as painting.  It’s about blending the colours, curves and form.  It’s about shapes and textures.

The result should be calm, soothing, and warm

The process should be therapeutic, mindful and relaxing


Like my paintings, it is multilayered: layer , upon layer, to create depth.. Colours over colours , they’re there but you can’t always see them.  Of course, unlike the painting, the garden reveals its layers with the changing seasons, and the trick (and I’m still working on the ‘tah-dah’ moments) is ensuring a smooth transition a seamless flow of colour and form


My aim for this ongoing art project is semi abstract, ‘loose’ style, with the colours mingling, no sharp edges and a gentle flow ….

Here it is right now

it’s getting there….

Rose Tinted Ramblings

I'm Bernice but unless I'm in trouble, it's Berni. I laugh heartily; love wholely and live completely. I write what I think. Sometimes its fun, sometimes its political, sometimes its frustration, or angst. Always its real and heartfelt. I now live in Mid Wales having found a home with my family (John, my parner and Jason, our son) here in Llanwrtyd Wells where everyday eccentricity is celebrated. a place in the UK that attracts those from outside the mainstream and has created an identity based on its quirkiness. A perfect home for someone like me who tends not to follow the crowd, doesn't have a quiet laugh, and tends to speak first, think later! Life has reached a juncture where I have become aware that when you live your life through rose-tinted spectacles, every experience becomes one including joy, laughter, friends, meetings, experiences and great memories. Having always fancied being a columnist I figured why not share my rose-tinted ramblings with anyone out there who might want to listen- and if no-ones out there, why not write them anyway - bit like a public diary - but hey I have no dirty little secrets that I'm not prepared to share....!!!!
