Art week in review 19/10/2018

What a week it’s been! I’m exhausted, I have however sorted all of my accounts out and I’m up to date with those. YAY! This is a new thing for me…… organisation is a foreign and strange word.

I’ve been preparing for Christmas these last couple of weeks. I’ve made tree decorations, gift Tags and cards. I love how they turned out. I’ll have to do some different designs next year. Check out my Etsy store to see all of my available art.

I have almost completed my Robin winter coasters. I have to apply resin to them to make them super shiny. It’ll be my first time using resin so it could get interesting……

I have also been researching authors, artists and poets over the last day or so. Let me just say it’s been interesting reading about authors in the 1800’s. I’ve never had to worry about being motivated to draw or paint, but doing the other things that need to be done for my business have been the hardest to get done. Reading about artists and the traumas and triumphs has been a real motivator to get all aspects of my business up to scratch.

One last picture of what I’ve been working on this week. A beautiful little sketch of lavender and bees. I feel very strongly about bees and protecting them. I’ve planted 5 or 6 bee loving plants in my small garden but I am always trying to finding more plants and other ways to help and protect our wildlife? I love drawing bees.
