New Art Work

May 4, 2011

I’ve been busy, as I’m sure we all have. I watched the Royal Wedding. I took the day off work just to see it. It was wonderful. I love them both. It’s like a breath of fresh air to the Royals. She’s just so beautiful and elegant.

I’ve been taking a She Art class with Christy  Tomlinson. I love her, she’s so cute and her online class is great. This has also led me to the Brave Girls Club… I am quite busy right now. I should be in bed right now… yawn!!!! I will drag myself to bed in a minute. I’ll have to move Blue as she always sleeps in my spot. she won’t be happy as she thinks her rightful place is next to my husband. Jasper will snuggle up against my back or against my hubby.  He takes turns. Sweet.

A hippy girl and her dogs

     I did this in the She Art class.. but I was definitely influenced by Julie Nutting  as well.  I’m a big fan. I have learnt some great techniques in Christy”s class. I tried to add my own spin though, the dogs.

I also was inspired to paint another bike, painting. m not sure if I’ve finished yet and her’s a crow I’ve been working on…

Another bike .....

Ok I can’t get my post in order. I’m too tired to try. I have to go to bed. Its 1 am and I get up at 6….. G night.

I once saw a painting of a red crow wearing red shoes. for some reason that has always stayed with me.


Illustration Friday – Bicycle

April 28, 2011

Well, here’s my Illustration Friday post.  Bicycle.


When I was a kid, for some crazy reason I was not allowed to have a bike. My brothers had really cool BMX bikes, like the ones in the ET movie. They used to take it to an area with hills and fly over them. It looked like great fun.

When I was old enough to leave home I bought my own bike. I liked riding it. The problem was once I learnt to ride it I was never very confident.  So that petered out. Then I went to a vacation spot in England called Centre Parks. Where they didn’t allow any cars and everyone rode bikes. That was cool. Jess was a baby and sat behind me on in a bike seat. I was much more confident without cars.

Fast forward to today, I still don’t ride bikes. I’m nervous with the cars. My kids ride though. So does my husband. Maybe one day i will.

But I do love bikes. They are very cool, I like the older looking ones that you can imagine someone riding with flowers or french bread in basket, even a cute little dog.
