its getting really really chilly here in London, with temperatures going below zero and threats of snow imminent. with the leaves falling  from the trees its all looking rather bare - but beautiful still.  reminds me of this postcard i picked up on my recent visit to the Russell Cotes Museum in Bournemouth.  the painting is An Autumn Idyll by Leeds born  John Atkinson Grimshaw (1836-1893) who was also rather partial to that Victorian habit of fairy painting.  he sometimes used a camera obscure to project images onto canvas and also mixed things like sand into his paints. i think they are very lovely.
and here it is beside my beautiful yellow Roberts radio...which is also rather lovely.
