My exciting news!

I'm recovering from creative burn out by making lots of marble magnets at the moment (I will post a picture at a later date) and haven't had anything much to report on from an artistic point of view so sorry for the lack of posts.

My exciting news isn't art related...

We've put in an offer on a house...

and it's been accepted!! We're sooo excited!!

I knew that if I decided to have a load of business cards and postcards printed with my address on that we'd find a house! I was right! I should have had them printed a lot sooner :-)

So hopefully we'll be in the new house by the end of January. Yipppeeee!

Some of my favourites

Some of my pastels

Box canvasses

My sister and family are coming over from Lincolnshire today to have a look at my work. I can't wait to see them!

I'm going to take my superglue with me and a stapler just in case my little business card boxes have fallen apart. They shouldn't have but it's best to be prepared.

Here are a few photos that P took while I was filling in the insurance details.

Northwich Library Exhibition November 2005

It was a very long, exhausting but exciting day yesterday. It took us ages to put the 22 paintings up, but finally we got there. The paintings will be up until Nov 30th.

I got to speak to lots of interesting people which was lovely. Especially one older lady who talked to me for about half an hour. She told me that art is her life passion and that her daughter is an artist who lives in Ireland. It was fascinating talking to her. I tried to get her to join the drawing group that I'm setting up and she took a business card with her.

And I've sold a painting already. A lovely lady phoned me last night to say that she wanted Spellbinding Light and maybe another one. I'm very happy!! It makes all the hard work worth it to know that people enjoy my work.

I don't think I've mentioned the drawing group on my blog before. The idea is that a group of people who are interested in drawing (whether beginners or experts) get out and about to different places in Cheshire with their sketchbooks and have a go! It would be a place to share and compare drawings, learn from each other and marvel at the different ways people see things.

If you live in the Cheshire area and are interested then let me know! The more the merrier.
