How many cookery books...

I wonder how many cookery books you have?

I have a passion for them
and have to admit to having 118 at the last count

I'm always looking for something different to cook
and last night I wasn't sure what I felt like eating
so I got out my latest Dinner at Mine
by Annie Nichols
and made the most delicious tuna fish cakes
from a Sicilian recipe
and they were so so good.

What about you??

Gut Art

I'm taking a class with Mystele's Gut Art
and it's very exciting
sometimes it leads where I don't want to go
but learning all the while to go with my gut instinct

Here are some of my paintings:

I struggled with this and I think it shows - out of my comfort zone!

Halloween ACEOs







I made more but some are better in real life
than they photograph so I've left them out.

Here's 'Birdie'

I painted over something I wasn't too keen on
and like this much better
sometimes it can be a fearful experience
the devil you know etc.

I've had these ready for a while but just couldn't get round to taking photos.

I'll get some photos done soon.

Here's PINK TULIPS (they are my absolute favourite flower to paint)

Bloom True

I'm taking part in Flora Bowley's e-course
and it's revealing a part of me that I didn't know was there

It has taught me to work LARGE
Not to be afraid of failure
To just have fun
And that there's no wrong way

and lots of new techniques

Here's my first finished painting



 WINDFALLS


28x20" Acrylic on Canvas


Discover the brave intuitive you!
Join Flora Bowley for 'Bloom True - the e-course'
Let go. Be bold. Unfold.
