Well - I went for another pastel session with Estelle Robinson today.  This picture is of my first effort to pastel my daughter, Alex.  Last week I had a go at one myself but I found it really tricky to find the right colours.  Not having done portraits before it's quite a challenge.  Anyway today Estelle thought that it was a base to work on.  After 3 hours it's definitely on the way.  Estelle is a great teacher - very patient and encouraging!!! Roll on the next session.

Lovely morning today!  Great results from a very talented group.  Amazing what can be achieved in 2 hours.  Only a few minutes in and everyone is hooked and they struggle to stop for coffee!  They're all off to buy materials to continue at home!

I had a lovely day in Sellyoak at a client's home on Saturday.  Sue had invited a group of friends to join her for a needle felting workshop.  Such lovely results that didn't need any stitching on top.  Well done everyone!  If anyone is interested in doing the same please contact me.

A lovely weekend creating this lovely glass lead window.  Definite issues with achieving the correct colour but eventually painted over the green with lemon yellow a couple of times.  Love it

Happy New Year to everyone.  As usual drank and ate far too much at Christmas and obviously going to continue in this vein until January 2.  

If you haven't tried felting you might like to try a different hobby.  There are still 2 spaces left on the wet felting workshop on Friday 13 January at Cawston - see workshop page for more details.
As for me I'm down in Padstow for New Year and taking more pictures to Karensa'sKarensa's Art Gallery for the next season.  I feel very honoured that they want my work!
Life is so manic isn't it- there's never enough time to do anything!

Another great needle felting workshop yesterday......the results are always amazing.  You don't need to be artistic to enjoy the process and everyone is thrilled with the final outcome.  No further needle felting workshops until Saturday 11 February.

I am on the committee of the Coventry and Warwickshire Society of Artists and I am working with Jacqui Smithson on the next art exhibition at the Loft Theatre in Leamington.  In order to exhibit you need to be a member of the society.  This next exhibition running through October until the New Year is a mix of the work of members of CWSA.  If you are interested in joining please go onto the CWSA website and if you are interested in exhibiting at the Loft Theatre please contact me.
