Under the weather…

Urgh, I can’t remember the last time I felt this unwell!
Sorry for being so quiet in the last week but I came down with a rather nasty bout of tonsillitis and have been resting up trying to get rid of it as quickly as possible. I’ve been so bored this morning though which is usually a sure fire sign of improving health that I drew myself some get well soon notes inspired by all the bottles of tinctures and vitamins I’ve got scattered about me.

I hope you are successfully avoiding any winter ills and are fine and fit but if you too have succumbed then these are for you…

Happy Friday. x

True love

I drew this card for my husband because today we are celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary. I hope this little gal makes him smile!

‘The Same But Not The Same’ As my dear friend would say…

21 Feb

I painted this watercolour in December last year as a first birthday present for the twin daughters of a wonderful and talented friend of mine.

It was inspired by the phrase she often employs to describe her girls and is so entitled ‘The Same But Not The Same’.

Show me some love…

‘Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule’

So go ahead and share some love and friendship on Valentine’s Day!

And if you need a last minute Valentine to send to your someone special here are a few most excellent choices provided by NPR of all places. Enjoy!

I got a Nikon camera, I love to take a photograph, don’t take my Kodachrome away…

My trusty camera which is never normally far from my reach has had to go to camera hospital this week. I will miss him terribly but wish him a speedy recovery and am keeping my fingers crossed that he is home and fighting fit soon!

(My camera is a ‘he’ don’t ask me why, it just seems rude to refer to him as an ‘it’ don’t you think?)

My Chinese New Year resolution is…

And if I tell you about it then I’ve got to do it, right?

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

On to the next project

31 Jan

Here are a few more pages from my most recent Sketchbook for the Brooklyn Art Library Tour. I have been having a little look about on the Art House Co-op site at the other projects and there are some interesting things running right now. I’m thinking about ideas for their current ‘Fiction Project’. For anyone who missed the Sketchbook project last time round this might be just the thing for you. Its open to  anyone who would like to have an opportunity to tell stories by fusing text and visual art. So writers, zine makers, diarists, sketchers, poets and storytellers, this might be just what you need to get your creativity flowing.
Please let me know if you sign up!

Harmony by Mr.Doob?

Its this excellent online sketching tool with all sorts of different textured brushes and a colour wheel. There is a video of its features in action here but I highly recommend that you head straight over there and get doodling. I must warn you though, its addictive enough to while away a good proportion of this cold weekend!

Remember to come back and share your masterpieces with us!
