Mordor and odd weather

 I may have over-egged the mountainous regions of Japan and turned them into Mordor. I have a feeling I should be stitching Frodo in there somewhere!
 I would like to put some Japanese anenome's in the foreground, which means (and you know this sort of thing matters to me) that I can't have cherry blossom in bloom at the same time.  So, I've been checking out acer leaves as an alternative.  Choices, choices. Autumn or spring?

AND, I planted this lily in my garden way back in the spring, and it's done nothing all summer, but here we are on the 3rd December after a couple of moderate frosts, breaking into bloom.  I don't understand.

  1. I'm thinking cherry blossom will fit right in for colour. Laura's fabrics are just gorgeous and so descriptive used this way.

    I like your elongated figures. The artist Modigliani elongated his portraits too in a slightly different way and I've made a couple of portraits reinterpreting (as opposed to copying) his work. It takes some of the fear out of painting portraits for me.
