Wow May already

So much has been going on, around the house and art wise that the time has zipped by.

So the pond is nearly done, pictures soon. Stuart and Del are working on boarding out his garage so he is a happy bunny. China bought the furniture for her bedroom and it looks beautiful, she is just waiting for a super king size mattress for her bed then I will share photos.

I hate to be boring but I have been creating more faces, I write about them here and post them so that when I create my book with blog2print I will have a record of them in book form, so here goes my latest creations since my last post.


 This one is a portrait of Barb Rogers, I sent it to her so it now lives in the States.



 My sister Caroline loved this one so I sent it to her as a gift.
 This one was sent to a lovely lady to cheer her up.
 This one showed me getting braver with shading, and I was pleased with the results, it changes the picture with more shading.
 This one is a favourite of mine, why? because I did a happy dance with how her hand just worked.
 Another Pan pastel piece and on this one I stencilled the flowers with the pastels on her dress.
And as the Bluebells were abundant in the woods I decided I needed to do a Bluebell picture.

I am loving Pan Pastels, I get so much pleasure from using them, my poor paints, pencils are feeling neglected..hey ho no doubt I will get them out again soon.

I have so much catching up to do - really must write more, tomorrow is another day, gotta get out here as Real Madrid are playing Athletico Bilbao and if they win then they will be Spanish League Champions - so Ciao x

Forgot to tell you, Leandra is one of my favourite artists too! She lives local but sadly PaperArtsy do not have a shop. Though that may be fortunate too because I already spend far too much! Can see why you loved the workshop at Olney - OMG I was jumping up and down and I wasn't even there!

Hi Dawn!
Thanks for your nice comment on my canvas, I may have to do more of them!
I love all your wonderful faces, & your bluebells are beautiful!
Hey.. if you're interested, Leandra will be at the Craft Barn Extravaganza on 1st & 2nd June. I'll be going, & I expect Gabby & Nicola will be there too :o)
