30 Day Challenge – Day 8

Yesterday was a marathon drawing session and a real labour of love as the subject of my drawing is a character I love dearly.  Her name is Sky and she really is intelligent and fun and everything a collie should be.  She can run like the wind and often chooses to do so, leaving you standing.  She, along with Storm who I drew last year, belong to a dear friend of mi[...]

30 Day Challenge – Day 6 & 7

Two days of pictures together because nothing was dry enough yesterday so I could not take photos.  I am still on track at the moment though.....just at the mercy of the paint. The first is called Firestream and is a mixed media abstract.  It uses handmade paper, acrylic paints, beads and wire and some lovely deep reds and gold.  This is my favourite colourway f[...]

30 Day Challenge – Day 5

Day 5 of my challenge and it is another abstract painting.  When I was doing the base for Lime Splash I was torn between Lime Green and Cerise Pink so I decided to do another one with Pink.  This is the smaller canvas (20cm x 20cm)  It is acrylic paints with wire and beads to highlight. So here is Cerise Splash  It is only day 5 and I am bursting with id[...]

July Challenge

Ok, so I failed miserably on the June challenge although I did get a lot done.  I was held back by a horrible summer cold for a week but I should have managed to get more done.  What I have achieved has made my house look better and me feel better so I don't feel too bad about it. Spring Clean Lounge Paint Front Hall Paint Woodwork in Dining Room Paint Upstai[...]

Inspiration from the Garden

New artwork at last!! I was very happy to finally be back painting on Saturday night.  I had been out fighting the front garden with all the weapons I could muster but had been beaten back by a weed which my body decided it didn't like. I came out in water blisters all over my arms and the side of my face which then became swollen so I would have made a very good[...]

Passion and opinions

I have always sold my art face to face so all internet marketing is very new and, if I am honest, pretty alien to me.  I have read a lot of articles giving advice on how this should be done and, apart from the stuff which is common sense, most of it gives completely conflicting advice. Be professional - Be personal Don't tell people what your daily life is like[...]
