I missed a tribute to my nan last year, we had just moved house and I just never got round to writing the post. I'm sure she would have understood.
Ellen loved to paint and over the years she produced quite a lot of work of all sorts of styles. She was never afraid to have a go at anything. This daisy painting is either oils or acrylics on a canvas board.
Our daughter had a daisy theme in her bedroom when she was little so this painting was in her room. Now we've moved it's not up on the wall yet (it's been a whole year, how much longer can I use the "we've just moved" excuse?) but I would like to find somewhere for it. I think the frame is dating it so I'm probably going to swap that, find a more modern way to hang it.
I'm pretty sure Ellen would have love the idea of blogging, if it were a thing when she was alive I'm almost certain she would have had a blog to share her boundless enthusiasm for everything and would have social media accounts of every kind!
