This is a random old picture I found on a disc while tidying out our computer desk drawer this morning. I love this picture. It was taken in our back garden and is of a rusty tin bath with some newts from our pond swimming about in it. I love the shapes  they make, and the rust on the blue painted tin. I always meant to do a painting or a lino cut or some kind of artwork inspired by this. Maybe it will inspire you today, and maybe one day I'll get around to doing something with it!


  1. Oh wow! aren't they wonderful! I have some photos of deer in our garden taken just a couple of years ago, magical. I think your 'random old picture' is fantastic and I hope to see how the inspiration takes you.

  2. When I first glanced at this photo I thought it was a painting!
    How well the newts show up against the blue background of the tub.
