After I had shown a friend my Purple Flowers painting they asked if I could do something for them but in more of a Mauve… I think this is Mauve? Either way, they liked it; turns out it was an anniversary present for his wife
I got carried away with this one and didn’t take a break; I now have a really sore shoulder from hunching over it (I tend to crawl around my canvas rather then using an easel throughout)… totally worth it though due to the sentiment behind it
I’ve had a quiet couple of months regarding blogging, due to a not so quiet couple of months in the non wordpress world. Things have now settled down so here I am… and I’m back with a painting… that I have just sold!!!!!
My cousin told me a friend of hers was looking for a painting and suggested that she have a look at my blog as I do sketches and have tried painting before. Her friend was happy enough with what she saw so asked if I’d do a painting for her. She told my cousin what she was looking for (colours, ideas) and I did what I could. I told her she was under no obligation to buy if she did not like it. Lucky for me she did
I have 2 images of the finished painting above. One with the flash on, one with the flash off.
Me and a friend visited an Enchanted Woodland a few weeks ago. It was so beautiful…
… and so colourful!
There were hidden gems everywhere. This little door beneath an old tree was one of my favourites. Many people wandered past without even noticing it which, to me, added to the magic; like I was part of the secret
The deeper you went into the woods, the more you discovered…
… like the picnic area. Such a truly magical place!
I wish I could have taken the child me along with adult me, she would have adored it… I probably wouldn’t have been able to drag her away though; the adult me just about made the exit I’m not a photographer, the images were taken on a standard digital camera so really I have not done the woodland justice. I’m just a daydreamer (and a drawer) who wanted to share something beautiful at this magical time of year. Hope you enjoy them and that they take you somewhere amazing
