An Ode To Spring

Hello beautiful people,

Well it truly felt like Spring had Sprung, we have had beautiful weather for the most part, the birds are singing the Lambs are Baa-ing (that word just feels wrong lol) trees are getting their blossoms. And then today we get hail, thunder and lightening not mention rain, oh and a bit of sunshine as well. The old four seasons in one day situation! But aside from that it was the perfect day to hide away in my art room creating, hopefully I will have something worth showing you in the next few days 😉

Here is another painting I created for the course I mentioned in my last post. She looks like an ode to Spring, so very appropriate I think 🙂

Spring colour

This next one was completed a while ago and now has a new home in Australia.


Thanks for reading my ramblings 🙂 xx

Oops it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything I just hope I can remember how!! 🙂

We’ve had such lovely weather the last couple of days it’s put me in spring cleaning mode (I’m not sure how this happened as it usually skips by me every year :)) and as I’m sure you all know when you start one room it seems to lead to the next and so on and so on, so I think I’m going to be busy for quite some time. I’m trying to be ruthless and chuck out stuff but I am a bit of a hoarder so it’s going to be interesting!! 🙂

On a more creative note I am doing an online class with Tascha based on the artist Modigliani. It’s heaps of fun so far and you can check out the details here.

These are two of the paintings I have finished so far. They have been painted onto canvas measuring 9×12″

we’ve had a few new additions to our menagerie. Aren’t they cute!!

This is my daughters school project, she has to look after an egg for 4 days. Of course I decided it needed a little face.


The green eyed one is my practice egg, the blue eyed one is my daughters project “Eggie-mae”. Let’s just hope she makes it!! 🙂

I Hope This Works!

Okay here we go hehe. My laptop is at the doctors and has been all week grrrr so I am using my phone to put up this post so I hope it works!! I am pretty dumb when it comes to technology so fingers crossed lol. I have managed to finish two paintings this week, well……… when I say finished I mean nearly as the sides haven’t been done yet. I’m so bad at doing that, drive myself nuts!! Especially when I have to do a heap at once………….but anyway here are the pics.


I was trying to paint in a more “free” style as I drive my self bonkers with perfect lines etc, but boy it was harder and took longer to try and get a more natural look….. phew. I think I like the results though 🙂


This is my next attempt. She just kind of appeared on the background. Hope everyones had a great week xx
