I've been working on a highly complex still life today. It's a joy to do, but when so much mental energy goes in to one painting, as it did the bear - sometimes you just have to do something quick and simple and just PLAY!
Following a couple of weeks of solid rain, a few days ago I awoke to be greeted by the long absent, big fat yellow sun and an array of daisies, which had sprung up to say hello.
What could possibly be more inspiring than that?

This was a welcome creative break and took me all of about half an hour to do :0)
Mentally exhausted by the intricate paintwork I have been doing today, I am keeping this post very simple!
But, before I go, I have two very big thank-yous to say; The first is to Sue Pownall who, to my surprise sent me her original sketch of me sketching on our sketchy day last year in a lovely frame, all the way from Qatar for my 40th birthday!! I was SO surprised! SO delighted!
You can find more of her work here :0)

Secondly, I would like to thank Barbara Fox who recently sent me such a beautiful painting, which I was lucky enough to win in a recent 'painting give-away' that she did.
I never win anything, so I was delighted! Here is the very painting by Barbara Fox...

You only have to visit her blog to see what a talented artist she is, but I can honestly say, that as good as her art looks on a computer screen, it is even better in reality!
In the next few days I hope to post what I have been working on today, and I will also be introducing another of my bloggy friends to you. So, watch this space because he has some very interesting and thought provoking things to say!!
Now I'm off to rest my weary eye's before another painting session tomorrow.
Ta-ta for now :0D
