I'm back to painting again, with lots of texture & colour this time. This pic is a close up of my latest fruit bowl painting.
Not much to share today. Life is treating me well with lots of work to do in the shoe store and plenty to keep me occupied at home. Loved catching up with my family & friends recently at my nieces engagement party. Great to see such a happy couple too!
Sundays are my favourite day for reading and tidying the villa. So I'm heading back to my 'chill chair' in my sunroom to catch the last rays of the afternoon sun! Enjoy what's left of your weekend x

I've been experimenting a lot in cold wax lately and I just love it. Applying my own style has been difficult for some reason, maybe because others who paint in cold wax are so soft and subtle and I am always so bright. This painting has come close to what I need to create and it is a small glimpse of what I can perhaps produce.
Very busy in the shoe store at the moment so painting has had to go on the backburner again. Stop. Start. Stop. Start. Hard for me as I like a bit of flow!
In the meantime I dream of smooshy paint/wax and to the time when I can get back to it!

This morning I visited my local hardware store to purchase more wood panels for cold wax painting. These paintings are roughly 12" x 12". The day has been cold and wet, so there was nothing better I could think of to do, than settle in for some more cold wax painting! Some of my paintings have been soft and subtle......
Others have been simple..... I have chosen trees as my theme (as you have probably guessed!) while I experiment with this medium. Shellac flakes feature on this one (messy, but i love 'em).
Others are a little dark and shimmery, trees in the moonlight! More to come!
