It's also here because this is the 500th post on BoundingSquirrel. However long you've been reading here though, thank you so very much. Celebrations of numbers and time-frames (yup, it's been ten years, too) mean nothing by themselves.

But it got me to thinking...A blog that started off as basically a, "show and tell," space in which I navigated from being someone who couldn't draw at all to someone who can...What's next here-what can I offer you now?

If you have things you'd like to see, please get in touch via the social media links below.

But whatever plans I have for the future (yes, finally making all the freebies more navigable, and linking together posts so that you can follow up the things that interest *you* most easily) I do know that I'll continue to build upon what this blog has become...A space in which I do my best to offer you something fun, useful or joyful to look at or download each week.

 But once again, please join me on social media to let me know what *you* need from this blog.

And with that said, have a lovely weekend, and week ahead. More soon.

Whimsical Watercolour Painting: Happy Hollyhocks

Hello there, and happy Friday.

Don't know about you, but I couldn't quite let summer go this week. Perhaps because it's been warmer than in the actual summer ;-). 

The late heat has also keep summer flowers in bloom. Which was a great chance to capture some happy pink hollyhocks in watercolour/watercolor. There's nothing quite like sploshing around bright, happy colours on a hot day).

I'm loving how these hollyhocks have turned out as prints...

But also that, somehow, they've sneaked onto home décor,

as well as Redbubble's latest and very useful offering...(just about to be released as I type)...deskmats.

That's all from here for now, but hope that some of the happiness and colour from these hollyhocks can make its way to you. Summer's been a long time coming ;-) .

Have a lovely weekend-more soon.
