This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

All these are quick entries in my art journal............still not happy with any of them. They are still experiments but I am enjoying doing it. They only take a moment to do. I may yet get an idea for a real picture

I appreciate your comments and critique of my work.......hints are helpful as well as ways to improve, feel free to leave suggestions. Thank you all.

  9. loving your pen and watercolour pictures, the chickens are so much fun. Happy PPF, Annette x

  10. Love the roses and nature watercolors. Very nice!

  11. I think your work is lovely and unique. one thing I have learned is to love my mistakes BEcause it is the BEing creative that deLIGHTs my heart.

    I think that loving my art is so much easier BEcause it reflects me. I did NOT let it out for so long, yet here and there, online, as I share, I discover it isn't about DOing good art it is about the JOY of making art.

    BEing an artist is a rare thing, which we all possess. the problem we have is our tendency to compare and judge. how DO you hear the songs of birds?! yes, I thought so. all are BEautimous...

    your art is just like the birds.


  12. hahaha, the chickens are hilarious! love the frozen tundra

  13. I love the 'chicken joke', it makes me laugh so much, you have a wonderful sense of humour. How could anyone critique your work, it's so very good that all I could say would be keep going it's beautiful.

  14. Your art journal entries are wonderful! I love the roses, they are beautiful and I love the trees too. They look magical and wonderful calming!
