Dedicated with thanks to the memory of Michael Bond
who died yesterday aged 91 who brought, and continues to bring, so much pleasure to our family and to millions of families around the world with his stories of Paddington Bear whom he introduced to us in 1958 freshly arrived on Paddington Station from “darkest Peru”.
Enjoy the late Sir Michael Horden’s

In memory of our beloved Sunday who was sitting beside this painting in yesterday’s picture.
Those of you who follow thechangingpalette
will remember my year of sundays
last Thanksgiving Day and know how beloved our little Sunday was. Sadly, she will no longer be keeping me company in the studio anymore as we said goodbye to her today. We will miss her but are relieved she is suffering no longer. For those of you who didn’t know her visit my Thanksgiving Day
post and see how very special she was.
Depicting a state of impermanence.
I couldn’t resist re-visiting my photos of the Mirroir d’Eau
in Bordeaux for this week’s Photo Challenge: Transient,
where every few minutes the scene changes as the 2 cms of water that create the largest reflecting pool in the world drain away to expose its granite floor…
…before returning again to the delight of adults and children alike.
You can see more of this magical World Heritage Site in my post of December 2015
A colourful start to the week with photos, paintings and palettes out of focus in the studio
illustrating “the sensations of the moment” can so often be simply the joy of colour.
Happy Father’s Day to the proud new daddy of the family and to all proud daddies everywhere.
