I had a bit of a disaster for the exhibition opening - no-one had thought to mention that they light the place at night with candles == it was very dark! Great for a bar but not any good for an art exhibition! So I took it on the chin and removed all my work the next morning. Yesterday I set it up again at my cousin's beautiful inn and it looks really fab. Now all I need is buyers!!! Here are a few more paintings:

I set up my exhibition this morning helped by my daughter (who actually did all the work) and have earmarked the rest of the day for painting my nails - makes a change - face mask and anything else I can fit in. It feels like an anti-climax not having anything urgent to do, so I'm just gonna have a relaxing day. Here are some of my paintings (and as I have 22, I'll just post them a few at a time). I noticed my camera is giving everything a bluish tinge and don't know if I can remedy that, but I'll try:

I've had a cloud with silver lining close to me since yesterday,and since I felt so well, made some small fabric creations. They are more saucy images and captions. I think I like these better than the others as they are made of one piece of vintage linen, what do you think??

Good old 13th is a lucky number for me 'cos I've finished my paintings for the exhibition today. All I have now to do is give them each a name, it's so funny but most of the paintings suggest their name to me (better do and lie down - beginning to sound strange). I'll post pictures after the opening on November 24.

I attended a workshop yesterday run by Sally making 'jewellery from junk' and it was great fun, also learned lots of new things. Being a hoarder by nature, the thought of adding new junk doesn't alarm me, but I'm wondering where oh where can I store it!! I've scanned my stuff but the colours are much brighter in reality.

I've taken a break from painting 'cos I'm a bit washed out. I have 18 paintings, most of which are finished, and I think that's probably enough for the exhibition - just need one frame as most are wrapped canvas and ready to hang - like them the best!
I have also received my first commission for an art quilt - exciting stuff! So am going to start that now as I'm all wound up and that's probably due to the vast amounts of coffee I drink. The jar has a mixture of regular, half-caff and de-caff so I tell myself that it's fine..,.,.,.

Yesterday, I picked up the invitation postcards for my art exhibition. I've chosen one of my favourite paintings to display - it has some metallic paints on it and I thought they wouldn't photograph easily but it came out very well. Here it is:

Here are my swaps for the vintage Xmas theme. It was a bit hard to stitch onto card and they're a tiny bit squ-wiff (I've never written that before, looks wrong!). You know they say 'if you want something done, go to a busy person', well it's like a merry-go-round gone mad here at the moment, the more I take on, the more I get to do!! I even had to take some Bach's Rescue Remedy today.....
