I have been working I promise! I seem to have been flitting around from project to project and not achieving much and have just agreed to add some canvases for the wonderful girls from The Handmade Expo to take to the Ipswich show which is on the 7th, 8th and 9th May.
Of course I couldn't just send what I had and I wanted to have a little supply for them as they are going to sell so well ( she says positively). Now these are way brighter than what you are probably used to from this shabby girl but I think they are fun and should at least appeal to those with children...or hopefully some big kids as well!
Now beware you may need your sunglasses!! These are a few partially finished, some finished, some needing noses canvases I have started since yesterday....
Partially finished Babuska, she needs her nose and other bits...I will finish her tonight.
One hooty owl.
Two hooty owls
Three hooty owls, I am thinking there will be many more of these sweeties, I love them!
One partially finished pussycat....goes well with the owls don't you think?
One tiny Babuska, this was Mary Monday's request..
Aren't those colours just amazing! I am so loving the Winsor and Newton acrylics, the colour and the shine is amazing. Now I need to get myself some new brushes to do the paint justice...my old ones are really not much chop and there is only so much I can paint with my fingers.
In other exciting news I have joined ( and been accepted) BrisStyle...this is their blurb...
BrisStyle is a cooperative group of artists, crafters and artisians all living in the Brisbane area (Australia), who sell their wares on Etsy.com, the biggest online marketplace for all things handmade.
AND today I sold my first wall hanging on Etsy...oh the planets must be aligning. BrisStyle has a blog too...go and find out all about their giveaways and upcoming events. Their blog is here...BrisStyle Blog really worth a look see.
The BrisStyle girls are also heavily involved with the Brisbane Stitches and Craft Show which is on right now and hopefully I will get to in the next couple of days. That is if I am not in the middle of a painting frenzy!
Speaking of which I must go and paint some backgrounds if it isn't too cold outside..cold yeah I love the cold...sorry Kris but I do!
Of course with the change of weather comes lots of colds and flus ( yes including the swine flu). I have been encouraging the children yet again to cover their mouths when they sneeze, cough or yawn and wash their hands with soap and water whenever they get the chance but especially before eating etc. I know they normally do it but I have also told them to stay away from someone who is sick and guess what happens? Darling Husband comes down with a Viral Vertigo where the whole world spins so much he can't even roll over in bed...so now their Dad is sick and they don't know what to do, they don't want to stay away from him...aargh 'just wash your hands' I keep saying!
So on that note, stay safe and healthy, blogging is germ free!
