The Westport Club

There's an award winning cafe in Cupar, Fife called 1B Westport Cafe.
This is one of their most famous lunch dishes, the club sandwich, painted in watercolour, by me!

If you visit Scotland, be sure to drop in to Cupar and try one for yourself!

the heart of infinity

This is a watercolour painting from my imagination, of a galaxy in space.
I put in a heart and the infinity symbol, intending to give it to my husband as a Valentine's present - but he surprised me by asking for a bright coloured painting!

So there'll be another one to show you soon.

The Winter Robin

This little robin was created in drawing inks and water.
We see a little family of robins visit our garden - and when I wanted a subject to try out my drawing inks on, a robin sprang to mind.

I hope you like the result.

Sam and Shannon

Today's paintings were created as a present for a young lady, Shannon.
She owns a spaniel called Sam.

The first painting is something a little different, in that the outline of Sam the dog is made up of his name, but the nose, eyes and heart are made up of Shannon's! Painted in watercolour and ink.

The second is Sam painted in a more traditional painting, created in watercolour.

The Shooting Star

This painting was made to celebrate the life of a friend, who passed away recently.
It was commissioned by his sister and given as a gift to his daughter.

She had seen a shooting star on the night he passed and informed her aunt that the star was her dad.

This is the painting that commemorates that incident.

Freedom

I love visiting the sea, watching the waves and feeling the spray. There's a sense of wildness and freedom about it.
I also know there are many creatures below the surface, who have a freedom of their own.

Here's one such, in watercolour...
