Enter Delphine

I thought I'd look out some paints and colours I hadn't used for a while and started messing around with beeswax, acrylics, metallics and lumieres. Then I pressed into it with a metal spike and started to draw 'Delphine' - this painting looks different when the light is shining on it as the pearly metallics show up more.

The Beastie

Something completely different - here's my painting of The Beastie. I love lime green!! And it goes so well with my prized possession painting by Laura Sutherland where the colours are very similar although I didn't set out to do that!

The Happiness Project

I'm reading The Happiess Project by Gretchen Rubin and she writes about the satisfaction of clearing out and gaining space in the house which sometimes doesn't even get filled!! I know I've read this kind of thing before but it got me started yesterday. First I cleared out my art room and got rid of stuff I used to use but no longer need to hold onto, my love of altered art seems to have moved on.

I've tackled another mammoth task which has been bugging me for ages. I've been downloading all my CDs onto my laptop and only have about 10 to do, and they're going to the charity shop tomorrow. Why did I keep them for so long? I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders and I definitely feel good. And I have empty shelves - can that really be my house????

This one's for me

It wasn't till I'd finished this and was painting the edges that I saw the wood had a chip out of the side. How could I not have noticed that?? So I put it in my kitchen and I really love it.
It's in acrylics.

This is a painting of an actual boat which was transformed into a bed and hangs suspended from the ceiling with ropes.

It's mixed media on wood in my shop
