    Well, I got some work done on the painting I am doing for our club landlord.

    SHe is retiring the end of the month, and I have made this for her for a farewell gift.

    THought I would share and see what people thought. The photo is only from my mobile so the colours are not coming across just right. and it is not quite complete yet but you get the idea. :)

    Thanks Bex. :) Buildings are not my favourite thing to do....I prefer florals, seascapes, etc. My buildings always look wonky - so its a good job the buildings here are generally old and wonky naturally! :D

    I love to paint and have only been able to get in my studio within the past 3 weeks - for a year it had been our "garage" storing tools, etc., so its wonderful to get back.

    Must brush up a bit though. hahahah - no pun intended! :D

    Love the fairy & butterfly pics - they'd be great book illustrations. Eye of the wave is really cool too.

    Thanks SFA. The butterfly drawing has immense meaning to me. I face up to something very painful last year, that I had denied for over 20 years - part of why I was fat. You may or may not have read it in my Blog thread. But After having to finally deal with 20 years worth of buried stuff, that is what immerged.

    It was so healing drawing it and so symbolic, that I have decided to get it tattooed on my back when I am at goal. I want it with me always. It will fill my right shoulderblade and with a backward glance I will catch the little faeries, which represent guardian angels. I can;t wait to have it on me. Its part of what has got me to where I am today. :)

    your very talented, I particularly like the floral paintings. they are beautiful. its a pity your studio has been out of action such a long time as im sure painting would have helped distract you while dieting.... hmmm Jan considers taking up painting ;)
