Link love

When the words and pictures won't come, best instead to share the work of others. I'm too tired for writing or painting tonight, so let me tell you about:

The Boy Wonder
A little something for those artists among you who dream of hitting the big time - especially those who have only been painting for a year or two. This artist started just two years ago and just sold out an exhibition in just 3o minutes and made a cool £150,000. Not bad for a 7 year old... (yes, you did read that right!)

The Magpie's dream sale
Do you love bright and shining things - especially those that look fab-u-lous adorned around your neck or hanging from your lobes? Why not treat yourself to something really special without breaking the bank. My friend Mama Moon is having a closing down sale of her incredible jewellery. Grab it while it lasts... (I have!).

Dreamy Inspiration
I have been meaning to post this for weeks and weeks and have been very remiss. I was lucky enough to win this beautiful print from artist Flor Larios when she had a giveaway. I keep it by my bed and their serene faces greet each morning with me. Go dream on her site and immerse yourself in such dreamy inspiration

Her name is Faerwillow and she writes as you would imagine - words of magic and images that float through the mist. A most fortunate discovery! Another chance to thank her for the photos and gifts she sent.

And finally...
I guess you may need to be a Brit to get this parody of Alicia's big hit. It tickled me anyway and almost makes me want to be Welsh! Who needs New York when you've got...


  1. Thank you so much for posting about my art! I am glad that you liked it!

  2. Oh wonderful links...a couple I know... a couple I will toodle off and see!
    Flor...her work is delightful..I love it too!!
    Faerwillow...not only is she a sweetheart..but her writing is without a doubt magical! The girl has a gift!
    Thank you for sharing hon!
    Hugs, Sarah

  3. may have just brought tears to my eyes...ok you did! my heart is filled this night...thank you so for were one of the first blogs i came across through wishcasting and i was in awe of your paintings...always an inspiration you are to me and so many others...i very much look forward to visiting the others as i have not seen their spaces before...and for the boy...what an amazing moment in time for him...may we all dream to be...warm wishes and brightest blessings~

  4. I loved your post today! The 7 year old is quite an amazing artist. I think good publicity got him the crowd and money. Who wouldn't want to have a piece of original art from a boy who may one day become a Rembrandt or Van Gogh?

    I also loved the video of Newport, Wales. I just visited the longest name town and loved hearing them sing it. I didn't see Newport but other lovely towns in Wales.

    Look forward to seeing more of your work.


  5. Thank you for sharing the lovely links! Boy Wonder, no doubt ~~ what a grand thing for this young fellow. Such lovelies Flor Larios creates ~~ beautiful work. And, oh my, Faerwillow's blog is so eloquently written, with such breathtaking photos. What a pleasant post, with beautiful suprises, you have provided for me to enjoy this morning! My heart is smiling now, ;). Happy Day and Creating!

  6. What a wonderful post - I have heard all the rumblings about the little boy but it's so cool to hear more. And I am a fan of faerwillow too! Thank you for your kind comments and have a great Tuesday, Kristin xo
    BTW: Your work below is just beautiful - I love them!

  7. Wow, and I thought my son was gifted, lol! He's really remarkable ~ I remember hearing about him a while back but it couldn't have been THAT long ago since he's only 7, amazing!
    Thanks for the sweet shout out ~ you're a doll and I am feeling a bit like a 'Mama' these days, lol!

  8. What a gift the boy wonder has, let us hope is able to develop it in peace!
    And Video 'Newport' - I'm still grinning!

  9. The Newport video was funny, still smiling thank you for that, I also am having a non-work sort of time! I hope to get back at my art but need some inspiration. That young lad didnt seem to have any trouble!


Thank you for your comments - I always love to hear what you think :)
