Decided to let this one go

I found this watercolour when I was searching for something else.
I painted it in 1998 but somehow it never got put into a frame.
So I decided to list it in my shop

Vogue Italia October 2011 Mechanical Dolls by Tim Walker

It's Definitely Red Today!

The colour red has never been an easy colour for me
either to paint with
or even to wear (although people think I'd suit red because of my dark hair
wel, it used to be dark haha)

so I decided to push it and ended up with this painting
mixed media on canvas paper

you can find it here:

It's So Hard

I came to a decision last night that I would make a start on de-stashing my vast fabric hoarding!!
I've had a passion for fabric which started when I was young and some have even been to Australia and back!

I opened the cupboard today and just looked at the beautiful fabrics through the see-through plastic boxes
and I just couldn't do it.

I am definitely going to try harder, but not today....

Happy New Year and New Painting

Although I've been quiet for a couple of weeks, I have been painting when I had time.

I've had a lovely time over Christmas and New Year with the family, ate too much and drank my fair share of champagne!!

But now things have returned to normal and I even tidied up my art room and found the table again haha!

So here's the first painting of 2012 now on Etsy
