Last painting of the Old Year, on to the New!

If you've been following my personal blog HERE you will know that we've moved to the beautiful Kingdom of Fife in Scotland - moving further into the countryside was a long cherished dream of mine. I'm grateful that 2015 brought that opportunity to me.

We bought a house that needed a little work.
The first work was to install a new kitchen - and what will a new kitchen need? Apart from the obvious, new artwork!

Wrapping paper Paddy from the previous post was the first, this new painting of a field with poppies is the next.

That's my last painting of 2015 - on to 2016; where my hope is to be out more in this beautiful countryside, to paint more, sketch more and to write more too!

Here's to 2016 - may it be a great one for you.

Arty fun with recycled Christmas wrapping paper

Christmas comes and there are presents, covered in wrapping paper.
This year I decided to recycle some of my wrapping paper, in an artistic way.

Firstly, I tore the paper into strips

and then I took a cheap canvas, which already had a picture on it - and painted over that with white emulsion.

Once that was done, I took my strips and applied them in a random way to the canvas, using PVA glue.

Just LOOK what the end result was!

This was great fun to create - and an inventive way to recycle my wrapping paper!

Grandmother's Delight

Here is a recent commission, which I couldn't show you until after the person had received it.
I'm pleased to report that they are delighted with it.

Grandmother's Delight.

I'm currently painting Christmas cards, so it's not possible to show those either!
It's a strange time of year for my blog, but normality will return next year.
