A pair of...


I was going to title this post 'A couple of WIPs', but was a bit nervous on the kind of visitor I might be attracting. Oops I did it again!

I've missed my blog this week. Demands of work have kept me away and tired my poor little brain out. The only art I've managed is a quick charcoal outline of a figure. I have matchsticks propping open my eyelids, but I need to be here. The creative well is parched and cracked. It needs sustenance.

I've given all my words to my clients this week - there's nothing left for me.

I'll just post these paintings for Paint Party Friday then go and chill out and listen to some of Goddess Leonie's World's Biggest Summit. Both pieces have been created on top of old 'masterpieces' which I'm doing a lot of lately. I started them both over a week ago, alternating between each as the layers of paint dried. Hopefully I'll finish them over the weekend.

Before I dash off, let me just let you know (by sharing this link) about a lovely party (with presents for some lucky visitors) we are hosting over at Inspiration Avenue to celebrate our 500 followers! (I only hope they don't all turn up at once. I've only made enough vol-au-vents for 50!).

I am sorry my poor neglected blog. I promise I will fill you with wit and wisdom again soon.
