I have been spending as much time as possible outside on the deck. Its very cool in the mornings. I am enjoying being outside. It has been a very long winter. Not a lot to show on here at the moment and I have neglected my blogs. Ah well......will catch up soon. Meanwhile, just a few things I have done recently.
I like that one (above) not often that I do, but that one I like the way the watercolour cooperated and did that shading for me.
Sort of liked the next one too.
Foxy did not turn out exactly as I hoped but ah well, I sort of like him.
This is based on me seeing the sheep this Spring and imagining them now the blossoms are out
I really do not ever have anything in mind when I start a new page. I never know what I am going to do. I usually sketch a few and colour later.
The last couple I am not so fond of, but it shows what I am trying to do. I am putting in quotes and sayings or verses with the pictures. I go back after and fill the pages with other little things as the mood directs
Its a fun thing to do and relaxing. It has also taken up time I should be doing other things. Like sewing.
some pictures are from my own imagination, some are inspired by something I have seen. I never copy, but I do use ideas. Other peoples work can aid in poses and body positions. Things like that.

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.
