Marble Mania!

Continuing with the Marble theme, here is Marble no. 3 of my 'Finding my Marbles' series...

'Alone Time'


8 x 8 inches, Oil on deep canvas


This one seemed to take an age to dry and my 'marbleous' (snort, snort) assistant Geoffrey was getting a little frustrated with all the waiting around...! 



...But now Marble no. 4 sits in it's place and I'll be posting that soon. It's another small one, but I'll be doing another biggie soon too! I wonder how long it'll be before I'm sick of marbles? I'm not even close yet!!

Happy painting all!

    1. Thanks Nic!
      I have just ordered some Googly Eyes for Geoffrey. He is finding it very hard to be an Artists assistant without being able to see! ;0)

    1. Thank you Hilda! I'm glad you like it. Painting one marble seemed like it could be a bit of a dull painting, but I'm please with it being the star and it has turned out as I hoped! :0)

  5. I was going to say marbleous and you beat me to it! Loved the one of the tin of marbles, thought it was the actual tin for a few moments. I'm back btw .... 24000 miles and six weeks later!
