A work in progress...

Over the last week I've been experimenting with yet another new way of working. I'm still trying to find a style that best expresses how I want to convey things. I know I'll always be changing and evolving but just recently I've been going through a bit of a crisis and I feel as though I've lost my way a bit. I'm sure this is a good thing underneath the panic and that I'm working through it hopefully to come out at the other side with a stronger style. Fingers crossed.

Congratulations to my niece who has just passed all her GCSEs with flying colours.

Bubbling Volcano - This is the mess I made on Monday while cooking tea for my friends. I'd just finished cleaning the kitchen from top to bottom 10 minutes before. I was not a happy bunny.

Sketchbook Pages

Over the weekend I visited a lovely chocolate shop in Keswick. The different colours and shapes were devine. I rushed back to the car to make these sketches before I forgot what they looked like. These are definitely going to be developed into a painting.

Sketchbook drawing of my wish jar. If you've never visited keri smith's website go there now... I bought her book ages ago and there's a fun idea for creating abundance by making a wish jar. I don't know how but it seems to work too!
