Weekly Review 01/11/18 – 11/11/18

I’ve been away from social media for almost 2whole weeks! It was lovely, we went away on holiday to north wales which was amazing. I’ve had a little break from art and social media. Not that I haven’t been doing any art, just that I haven’t been bothered to photo it. I guess if it’s not on social media it never happened…. right?

The only pic I took with my phone while away in north wales. What a little beauty! I love the colours, they way he’s gripping the reeds, they seem to just float peacefully. Even with several stinky humans pressing there fat faces on the glass.

I’m working on a couple of commission pieces, which I’ll be able to show you after Christmas. To say they have challenged me would be a massive understatement! I still struggle with people!

I can show you a few other works in progress though. Some chipmunk coasters I am working on.

Yes, I have used a stencil with these ones. It’s hard enough trying to get them all in the right position. Do I feel like a cheat. Hell no. You know why? Because I still have to hand paint each little dude individually. I need to place the leaves by hand. This just makes it easier for me to do these little beauties justice. Do I care what anyone else thinks? Nope.

I love purple, and gold, and Christmas. For our Christmas tree we have mostly purple and gold baubles and tinsel, and I bought this little beauty from Katie and K8tieSparkles on Etsy. I can not wait to put it on my tree!

I have also created a “Colour your own” Christmas card this year. My kids are loving it.
