Winter walks along the beach

Looking through some of my old photos last night made me feel like painting and here are the results!

Both the surfer and view of IOW pictures sold- yippee

So I painted some more small ones on canvas (as I was asked) for last weeks art market and then only sold cards - very frustrating!

One more art market to go, on Sunday 19th December.
Have decided to try these small pictures in EBay as they are painted on canvas and easy to post.

Winchester Art Market tomorrow -just hope it stops raining!

I actually sold two small seascapes last months so have painted some more and a couple of the 'pebble' pictures as they seem to to attract attention! I also managed to paint one of my more wacky ones - just for the joy of it!

Winchester Art Market

It was so cold but feel cheered by the great feedback received and selling pictures always helps. The small surfer picture and View of the IOW along with Beer II. Makes me feel inspired to do some more small photo montage pictures.

Winchester Art Market -this Sunday 15th August

I have booked a stall at this new market, in the centre of Winchester (Middle Brook Street) with the aim of selling some pictures - fingers crossed! I have been going back to my love -the more surreal stuff that comes to me in dreams!  I have four on the go, this one is finished!

And this one is half way through!

Been busy.....

Painted 4 seascape pictures, sold one but still haven't finished my Lily!

Got creative on the weekend

I started a new painting on the weekend and what joy being able to paint outside!

The first base coats are all down and I had the usual interruption with the joy of feeding my fish:

And then Xena cadging some fish food!

But got to the stage where all the base coat is down and now the detail work begins......

I have such a lot of arty things going on at the moment, I thought that - seeing as it's my birthday today, I would practice my DTP skills and produce a newsletter. It's about to go up on my web site so do check it out and let me know what you think!

Thanks to Phil for spotting this opportunity -I have now registered and posted my art up on the Saatchi On line art gallery.

They have a lovely morphed image on their home page that's fascinating to watch and worth checking out.

Celeste art competition

Just entered a picture (Watching) and a sculpture (The Dancers) if you have time there are some amazing entries this year and its worth taking a look:

Tweaking my web site

The craft Fair went well and I met some really lovely, interesting people who gave me some great ideas, which I am following up on, including making approaches to some galleries - exciting stuff!

I have been tweaking my web site with lots of help but slowly getting there with it - learning curve!

Linked to my web site - hurrah!

Wow I have a blog that links to my web site -with thanks to a very dear friend!

I was privileged to be living on Jersey (on and off) for the last two years and as I reluctantly carted my personal belongings back to the UK (with the help of my little sister and with the amazing support of my family) I realise what an artistically inspirational place the island was! Now I have a dozen or so Jersey pictures that are currently sitting in my lounge, which I would like to sell off! Any reasonable offer accepted! Most are on my web site but those that are not are posted here. please get in touch if you would like to know dimensions or anything else.
