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.

Watercolour .........

I took a picture I had and changed it to make one of my own, so now although I was inspired by a picture I have an original. Sometimes I need that to spark my imagination. I do wish I could just come up with these things. I never look at what inspires me when I draw my own.

If this is your dragon accept my apology, not sure where I found him, it may have been in a book. Anyway, I changed him and now he is mine

  1. Lovely. I too, have a hard time coming up with my own so I tweak a lot. But it works! Love your watercolors. Thanks for sharing

  2. Wonderful Janice!! Really wonderful! I love how you create so many different things! Don't be hard on yourself on looking at pictures! I do the same thing, sometimes, I even look through Etsy, at other people's art. You never know where you are going to be inspired! Hugs ;o)

  3. There are some lovely pieces here Janice I really like how you used the paint spatters for the autumn leaves and the wee boy washing the dog is cute!
