The Latest

Above is a sneak peek of the latest painting I've been working on..........  more fruit, I know, I know!  Lots more to do on this one before it's finished.

Another market day coming up again for me and some exciting news - I have a website under construction!  Stay tuned and I'll let you know when it's complete.  It's lots of fun helping my website man put it all together.  I think I may have the easy part though!

We are looking forward to a well earned holiday soon.  Some time to prune our thriving garden and to do things around the Villa.  More opportunities for painting and also a chance to go away for a week up the north coast for some sun, sand and wave action!

Did I ever show you these?

These are my story boards, the first one finished, the second my favourite, the third in progress!

I love telling children's stories and love painting in bright colour too, a match made in heaven!

I had a market day today, assisted by my daughter and son.  Not so successful in terms of sales, though we did a lot of networking and talked through a possible large commission.  Fingers crossed for some good results there!  Lots of positive feedback on my art in general too!

The Cards Have Been Dealt

I created this art a long time ago in ink in my journal and decided to reproduce it in paint.  The idea being that we are alive in the womb with a blueprint of our lives, a hand of cards already dealt at the time of conception, that we must play the game of life with.  Most of it is about love being all around us, no matter what we may perceive.
