I decided to start September with a challenge to myself – to complete 30 paintings in 30 days ! I had been given lovely watercolours from a colleague who didn’t use them. This prompted me to start some floral wreaths in various tones. Happy to say I’m keeping on course … here they are ….. so far!!
Well …to say that my session ‘Doodling Harry Potter’ this month at LeakyCon Dubin..was a success…would be an understatement! I am always a little nervous when I teach and think that no-one will turn up! This time I was hoping for 10-15 folk …. what a surprise when we arrived at the room and we counted how many came …140!! Wow… I’m still smiling!
I was so impressed with all of the participants – aged 4 – 54!! They were all really responsive and talented too! It made me realize that I love to teach …and to see people drawing/painting again. See the photos below for their happy, smiling faces 🙂 !!
My thanks go to my sister Denise (check out her lovely assembled boxes at Denise’s Boxes) and my brother in law Norm who ran around to try to find more paper and pens!! I also want to mention the lovely lady from Australia – Doodles by Sarah – who very kindly gave me permission to use her Harry Potter art to run the session … (it would have be difficult to paint my acrylic landscapes in the session!!) Thank you!
…are now hanging up in their new home in Texas, USA … thanks to Carla for this lovely photo. I really like to see how you have them all framed up and arranged on your wall – thank you so much for letting me see them!! 🙂 Enjoy!!
I need at least another 24 hours in my weekend to do all the things I like to do!! Have you time to be creative and if so – what crafts/art/baking/woodwork/flower arranging/whatever! do you do? Let me know either in the comments or over at my Facebook page!
Thanks to Marion… Gabriel and Marie for sharing these photos of my artwork in their homes!! It’s just thrilling to see it on the walls – makes it all worthwhile 🙂 … you can click on the photo itself to see the photos in more detail!
…. finishing some artwork which I began a while back. It’s been a busy month at work and now that the festive season is almost upon us …I’m touching up some art and it’s now on the wall drying! My sister at Denise’s Boxes and I are dreaming up some lovely things for next year …so watch this space 🙂 Hope all your Christmas shopping is almost at an end and you’ll be able to set aside some creative time over the holidays!
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.
