#6DaysToGo #LandscapeArtistOfTheYear #wildcard #rosehips #Autumn 

Been fiddling round with more of those rose hips….outside and in. 

In other news …..there are now only six days to go until my wildcard heat at Stowe! 

Here’s a little poem to help you all remember – can’t think where I got the idea from….

“Remember, remember the 15th of November,

When the last Landscape heat is on Sky!” 

– perhaps I’ll stick with the visual arts….

@SkyArts #wildcard #tonight #LandscapeArtistOfTheYear2016

Just to prove it! ….look what you get to stick on your paper or canvas! I am able to tell you that I was one of this year’s wild card entries – but not how I got on – heats start 8pm Sky Arts tonight – and I will be on at some point in the next 6 weeks.
