Something Fishy is Going on...

This month I've been busy painting for the 'Naked Challenge' and so far it's proving to be just what I needed to get my butt in the Studio more regularly! Somehow I'm managing to get so much more done, despite giving myself far more to do, if that makes sense? I even designed a nifty little logo/badge for the Naked blog, which you can see on my side bar. It was good fun! I've never designed a logo before and I think it looks quite cool!

I'll be sharing some of the paintings I do for the Naked Challenge on here too (though maybe quite a bit later), but if you want to see what Suzanne Berry contributes, then you will need to go the the 'Naked Artists' blog. She has posted an amazing painting on there today and it is WELL worth a look! The blog is very new and hopefully there will be plenty of art to see throughout each month - and anyone can join in the fun! 

Here is the one I posted on the Naked blog last week...

...Isn't he cute? I named him Geoffrey :0)

Before I go I thought I'd share with you a little tip... 
Yesterday, I almost threw these empty make-up pots away... 

...until I realised they would make perfect oil paint savers! And to make the leftover paint last even longer, I'll just pop them in the fridge!

Happy painting all!

The 'Naked' Challenge...

 This week I've been working on February's 'Naked' challenge.

It's a bit of fun, so please feel free to join in the challenge yourself  - just be sure to link back to 'The Naked Artists' and we will link right back to your own paintings at the end of each month!

Anyway,  it's great to be back at my easel! 
I'll be posting my first painting of the month in the next few days, so watch this space!

Back soon!

Yoohoo, I'm Back!!

Hello my arty friends! 
I am finally back from our holiday, feeling recharged and ready to get back to the easel this week!

Obviously I have nothing arty to share yet, so I thought I'd just say hello and share a few holiday snaps with you. It has been a real shock to the system returning from 30 degree heat to the freezing temperatures we are experiencing in the UK - It's a shame because my glorious tan is hidden beneath a thousand layers of clothing! 

Ah well, my head is filled with some wonderful memories that I will treasure forever...

...A glorious Maldivian Sunset

...Enjoying a drop of fizz

...Precious time with my lovely Hubby!

...Beautiful surroundings

...My view from the plane on the way home

So, next stop - The Art Studio!
Oo-er... I hope I can remember how to paint!!

Back soon!
