It’s already a month into the new year…I’m not really sure how that happened or where the month went.
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.
Really, they are every where, so noisy too. Not that that’s a bad thing.
I’ve been painting again, some bird silhouettes, it’s been really helpful them flitting around in the sun. Lots of inspiration and useful examples.
I also snapped a quick picture of Charlie and her wee pal relaxing in the sunshine.
They don’t like being outside unless they have human company but still want to lie in the sun, this half in half out solution seems to work quite well.
On Friday I spent the day helping out at the primary school where my mum works. They were having a “Green Day”, they had a fair with lots of fun activities for the kids (I was roped into painting faces) and afterwards all the kids spend the rest of the day in the school gardens planting and learning about the environment. Lots of fun was had by all.
Aside from painting creepy crawlies/flowers on the faces of dozens of children, my creative activity of the day was more necklace making!
Some nice long ones;
I also took a few pictures when I was out walking the hound with Wee Bro;
I went a lovely walk at the beach yesterday with Charlie and the parents. I decided to take a few photo’s and have that be my “creative thing” of the day. The walk was really nice though a little chilly.
Charlie loves the beach and it’s always useful to have her jacket on when we go, so she doesn’t disappear amidst the sand.
