Flowers fill the page

The weekend comes to a close, seeds started, sewing projects finished, some paintings done, still an endless list of unfinished projects.

Hearts, Disguises and Valentines Flowers

Can you see the disguise?
Playing with hearts

Watercolour hearts, seeds started, fog lifting for a little sun today, greenhouse warm and earthy. Downton Abbey on tonight!

Still playing with this theme, I'm liking the leaves!
What do you think?

Poppies and more poppies

Seed for these arrived today!!!! Which one do you think would be the best print? Or best for a textile design for pillows? One giant poppy or a composition of many? I've been looking at them too long...
Late for several art challenges, being back at work full time and the low winter light really takes the energy out of me.

Flowers For Tracey

I was getting ready to post to paint party friday challenge when I read about Tracey Fletcher King and wanted to contribute something. 

My teacup became a vase, sending good thoughts and energy her way :)

These flowers are shared with a giveaway here.

Flowers for 2014 & a giveaway

 After a busy Christmas with family, getting back to painting just in time for getting back to work! I think there might be something wrong with that?

Thought it would be a nice way to start the new year with a giveaway!
Leave a comment and I will do a random draw for a print of this new painting.

All the best in 2014 to everyone who has followed the blog and those who stumble upon it.
 These two are buddies snuggled up in front of the wood stove. Total trust!

I finally got my wreath made, a neighbour gave me a bicycle rim which was perfect!

 We did make time for some walks to the beach close by, lovely soft light.
This new painting will be up on etsy shortly as a print.

More flowers this year and maybe trees. Note photo above, really enjoying the shape of the winter trees.

Finalizing seed orders dreaming of sweet peas....

Draw winner!!! Jack K
Please send me your mailing info and I will send the print off.
Thank you to all who entered may it be a creative year :)
