In Denial... PPF and Sunday Sketches

I've been out and about quite a bit this week, so you are probably going to know what comes next... 
... unfortunately, I haven't a new piece of artwork to show you today.
Sorry. 
Because I'm in serious denial that autumn is waiting in the wings, I thought I'd show you my watercolour autumn leaf.
I've heard the robin twittering away (which is a very autumnal sound) and even witnessed the odd leaf drifting down from the trees, so this painting come to mind.
Surely it can't be autumn coming to call already?
I still don't feel we've had enough warmth to last us thorough until spring arrives.
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. 
Albert Camus
When I took this photograph for PPF today, I was shocked to see I painted it in 2014!
I really enjoyed painting the leaf and liked the results, so I decided to frame it in a simple white frame. 
I love these frames. 
This is where it usually sits... on top of a chest of drawers. 
The white teddy bear is called 'Bobby' and he's my daughter's. 
He lives with us... in her words..."to keep him safe" and 'Arthur' is a one off Bohemian Teddy by Amy Young.
The riding hat is mine, but it hasn't had an airing for quite some time.

Thanks Eva and Kristin for hosting once again.

I've been steeped in history over the last week, visiting two castles and last night we went to 
His Majesty's Theatre in the centre of Aberdeen.
His Majesty's Theatre is a distinguished venue boasting one of the most beautiful and spectacular auditoriums in the UK.
The theatre was designed by eminent theatre arcitect Frank Matcham and opened in 1906.
The theatre is a prominent part of the Aberdeen skyline, with the Sir William Wallace monument opposite the main entrance. 
(William Wallace was a Scottish landowner who became one of the main leaders during the Wars of Scottish Independence).

We've seen many performances in this beautiful theatre over the years.
From Pantomimes to Ballet's.
Last night we watched the musical 'Made in Dagenham'.
The musical was inspired by the film of the same name.
It's a stunning building.
Apologies for the poor quality of the photographs, but obviously it's difficult to take a good photo in the atmospheric dim lighting. 
I love going to the theatre don't you?
What was the last show you went to see?
I'd love to know.

I'm also linking up with Alexandra's Sunday Sketches. It is week 5 already!
So that's it for this week folks... I really will try to produce more artwork for next week. 
In the meantime, have fun. be creative and have a wonderful weekend.
