'Photo shoot'

Been very busy this morning trying to do styled photos of stuff for easter/ spring but lots to do as only a few nearly worked. As I am posting I think the wall and unit are too need to try again also need more light. Have a contact to email and in doing photos have mislaid the card!!!!

A positive step....

At last after lots of pushing and trying finaly some one has appreciated my take on screen printing. Applied last year and did not get the big job but now am being offered the opportunity to write 'how to'  for a major online education resource. There is a little pay but for me its just the sharing...getting out there, the article remains mine. I am pleased a chink of light...

Blue tit...

Can say he is finished ..just edges need a touch of paint. Not a splash or splatter in sight, very difficult to resist!  May need to hang on wall and leave for awhile, I want to work back into it, but like said earlier maybe need to do smaller ones with other ideas....also thinking to screen print. Will spend some christmas money on hinges for screens so can do colour separations and leaves berries to print over?!

New painting....birds maybe better

Another painting just trying something very different.  Using chalk paint completely opposite to acrylic, do plan for these colours to be muted and soft ...pastel pale. Think chalk would do that. May even sand back /distress and wax? We will see....
