This may be familiar to some of you, and I did paint something like this a while back just much larger. I liked it so much, I wanted to see if I could do it again… Summer Days is available in all my shops, Etsy, Artfinder and ArtGallery.
I’m delighted to announce that I have been accepted to join the Glasgow Society of Women Artists. They have been on the go for over 100 years, and now I’m a part of them; I’m rather pleased.
My first exhibition starts with them starts with a Private View on Friday (more details to follow, apart from the above), and if you want to find out more about the GSWA, just click here.
I love experimenting with watercolour and gauche, never really knowing what’s going to happen as I let it dry. In this painting, I used cellophane on top of wet paint, letting it dry into all sorts of shapes, and dictating the shape of the landscape.
A studio is not a studio unless a cat has claimed a shelf as its own.
I had done a load of knitting, thinking I could maybe sell some of it and stored my handy work neatly. I then made the mistake of blinking and found my knitting miraculously turned into a cat bed and unsalable. Now I’m out of sorts if he’s not sleeping there. His name is Splat by the way so named by my husband I must add.
The weather in Scotland has been spectacular this summer and I have spent most of it out and about. Glencoe is only 1 1/2 hours away from me, and heading up into these mountains on a sunny day is the most heart warming activity I can think of in this weather. The surrounding mountains exude such a strong sense of history and at the same time remind you that nature is the one in control (the weather can change at the snap of a finger). It is such a privilege to have Glencoe so nearby.
