For quite a while I have had a strong desire to do some paintings again........it's been a while!
Here are some small still life paintings that I have done in recent days to brush up on my skills.
These simple studies of fruit and eggs and the interplay of light and shade were great fun to do......I can really lose myself when I paint.

Oh boy..........It's been over a month since I last posted here! lots of stuff happening in my life has prevented me from always doing what I want to do, but I'm back in harness now, more or less. My dear old cat (I posted about her a while back) passed away a few weeks ago. She was twenty one years old and such a sweet-natured little presence that I miss her badly. Always considerate, she saved us the looming anguish of making a decision about when to take her for the kind needle.
Here is some stuff I've been working on.....firstly the Travelling Doll Project that I have been participating in. This is Colleen's doll, which arrived with no face. I gave her a face and the small baby she is holding and sent her on her way. She looks a bit odd with no hair, but I'm assuming the next person will give her some! Secondly, here is a sculpted bust I have just finished. I called her "Guinevere". And lastly, I've been making Zozie dolls and small wrapped elf babies to sell at "The Best of the Tamar" market to be held in the Sidmouth Hall on Good Friday. This is when the Three Peaks race starts, so there should be zillions of people around. I should also have some small paintings and some sculptural pieces on display.
