I am feeling very pleased that I have finished both our tax returns and today with a sigh of contentment I returned to my painting, which is a bit of a whopper at 90cm square, I have only drawn it out so far but longing to get some paint on the canvas in the morning. I will show you it when its on its way, it should be a nice one if it goes to plan, it has a seaside theme to it and is destined for a gallery in Falmouth.
Just finished this painting last week and took it straight to a gallery in Lynton, North Devon who are starting to sell my work. I love the old bit of fabric I used for her dress it had a transfer pattern on it and I filled it in with wonderful gold paint by Golden who do the most marvelous acrylic paints. I love toy animals on wheels so this girl has her horsey although she is wishing for a real one, just like I did as a child.
I bought this lovely german toy cow at Shepton this weekend and he has already made friends with the little horse I got there last time. Both made out of papier mache and only 5 inches high.
And well, I said this was a post not about anything in particular, here is my nature table tray that on the cupboard in the hall. Its where I pop all the beach treasure out of my pockets.
