What’s it like where you are? It’s getting pretty cold here in Northern Ireland but at least there are some relaxing days off on the horizon (yipee). I really really need to get my paints out very soon…it’s just been so busy with shopping, eating and house stuff recently…but I am really missing my acrylics and canvas!! As we approach the end of the year … I just wanted to thank everyone from all over the world for your visits this year and reaching over 18,000 views!! When I started my little art page …it was really just for family and friends to be able to see my latest paintings but I could never have imagined just how many of you regularly check in and say hello…THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!
I would love to know where on earth you are …so please do leave a comment and tell me.
Please do go and check our my lovely twin sister’s assembled boxes at her Facebook Page Denise’s Boxes and also her own WordPress Page. She is well on her way to the 10,000 views so do please go and tell her I sent you!!
This year I’ve had the great pleasure of helping others pick up their own brushes and pens to start their own creative journey! I’ve lead classes for older deaf people, a cochlear implant support group and the sign language users group. Although I only have level one sign language …I’ve had help from others in order to communicate – thanks to those people!! :)
Promised myself I would clear up my art room … and look what I found – a dozen or so paintings looking for new homes!! If you message me with your upcoming friend/family birthday or Christmas present budget (+ postage if required) – I’ll suggest some that might fit. No obligation Look at their wee faces – they need loving homes before Christmas! A piece of artwork is for life !!
Thanks to Jeff for the photo above (I think it’s Scotland!?) … it inspired me to paint my interpretation of the seascape. Sometimes it can be a pressure when someone wants me to come up with artwork based on their favourite scene or building … usually my landscapes are out of my imagination! :) It’s a challenge …but sometimes it’s good to have a little challenge now and again. This autumn I hope to settle and do some homework around my art … I’ll be going to a course at the Crescent Arts Centre which deals with a variety of artist-related topics… then it will be full steam ahead – painting all winter with the hope of a little show sometime in 2015! :) I’ll keep you informed of any news … thanks for calling by !!
