I now have a little of my wire work on display in a local cafe. Which is pretty cool.

I spent a while on Friday setting out some of my creations in one of the display cabinets at the lovely Fresh Coffee Shop (Dunfermline). It’s a fantastic and very friendly cafe, well worth a visit if you’re local.

Here’s a few wee pictures of how it turned out:

I’m quite glad its all set up now, this week has been a wire week and I’ve been itching to get the paints back out again for another wee play.

For Christmas I gave out lots of arty/crafty gifts.

Here’s a wee photie of the goldfinch I painted for my grandparents. They often see goldfinches in their garden and are quite attached to the wee birdies.

It’s already a month into the new year…I’m not really sure how that happened or where the month went.

Oh well.

It’s been quite a while since I did any bloggy stuff, I’ve been doing plenty of arty stuff but just not really documenting it, partly because of camera problems (I lost the memory card).

Anyway I do have a few pictures of some of the things I’ve been up to and I fully intend to look for my memory card at some point, soonish, maybe later.

So here is a wee painting of Sammy the Samoyed;

I really really hate painting white dogs. Really. (I painted Sammy under duress, it’s amazing what parents can guilt you into doing when they put their minds to it.)

I’ve still been painting lots of silhouette style paintings, birds and landscapes mostly.

Here’s a seascape that I tried to add a bit more light into;

And another of my birds on wire paintings.

I’m planning on posting a bit more regularly again…so keep an eye out.


Here’s a picture of the two paintings I completed while I was away.

The photo isn’t great, no natural light.

One is inspired by the plumage of a peacock and the other is a Scottish inspired landscape.


Here are a few bits and pieces I’ve been working on;

Things are pretty busy just now so I’m planning on doing only one or two posts a week for a while.


Here are the paintings I completed when I was away;

I also made some beaded memory wire necklaces with my lovely six year old cousin, I don’t have any photographs of them though.
