My neighbourhood here in Bristol was lucky enough to be awarded funding through the Mary Portas - Portas Pilots scheme.  It's basically funding to help develop shopping areas which have closed down due to the recession.  Help is given to shop owners to develop their business and bring a vibrant community back to run down areas.
Part of this funding is given way to the arts.  There is a theme 'insects', where local artists can show their work in local shops and business forming a trail for people to follow.
Here is my application.
What do you think?
Vintage images, re-worked using textures and brushes with digital geo shapes added.
I hope they get selected!
Shall I also put some in my shop?

EDIT - These prints are now available in my BigCartel shop

A snowy sledge to the Park

Woah!  Didn't it snow last night?!

We woke to a few inches of snow here in Bristol... yay!

Also Yay for it being a Saturday and the first day of school holidays!

We took the sledge to the park and did a bit of shopping on route.

Clifton Suspension Bridge - the view from the end of our road.

Super strong Daddy pulled the boys all the way to the park. 

Down the hill to North Street, our local high street.

Charlie's school covered in snow.

Past the local brewery & a stop off at the bakers for a loaf of seeded sour dough and bread pudding.  Notice the lettering saying DAN(CE)... with Dan stood next to it!

Oo I've just notice the sign, Barn Dance!  I wonder what that was like?

The park looked glorious in the sunshine.

Charlie pointed out these huge christmas trees.

The boys had a sledge down the hill.

Yes folks, this is my new coat.  I chose an amazingly warm Parka in the end.  So glad I did, it is so very toasty, too warm, I was cooking!

We walked/sledged slowly home, with a stop at the deli for hot chocolate.
