Kids’ Art Week!

Thank you, Carla, for another free Kids’ Art Week! (Last year’s lessons are still available here.)

The procession

The procession

Can two be a procession? You have to imagine the rest! I just fell in love with the tiny figure on the right who appeared out of nowhere.

This is one of my pictures for the Tunbridge Wells International Art Fair 24-26 June 2016 (to be shown there by Redleaf Gallery).

The image is 8×10 inches (20×25 cms) approx. and is a mixed media painting.

Pick and mix

Year of the Spark

This is just the beginning of the piece. At lesson 23, the year’s work is nearly done. It’s been brilliant! Year of the Spark has followed Year of the Fairy Tale – both with Carla Sonheim. This year Lynn Whipple has provided half the lessons. Super mix of talents.

lesson-23-main-III kid myself it now looks a teeny weeny bit like an Egyptian tomb wall – I shall call the bathing belle Nefertiti.

Next year it will be Y is for Yellow. Watch this space…

And now: tote bags!

Do visit and see my pictures on tote bags  – I am thrilled with the look of them. You can adjust the placement of the artwork, or make it smaller – just click the one you like to see the possibilities. (Copyright line on this example won’t be on the bag!)

Sun through the blinds

Is she an artist’s model? Or just a woman enjoying the warmth falling on her through the blinds which provide seclusion?

A mixed media piece with collage, contour drawing and distortion!

Last post of the year – wish it was warm enough to sit around in the nude!

Happy New Year.

Hmm. An ink drawing collaged onto decorated papers. Sadly the paper turned out to be very delicate and one of her legs fell off in the process – poor lady! But I like the picture anyway. Image 8×10.5 inches (20×27 cm).
