Poor dolly.

I am, as you can imagine a hoarder. I have however been chucking many things out recently,including a doll I made in brownies! he he.

Isn't she a beauty!

Too late now.

I have also completed another garden doll.

A little bit of 'Orla' inspiration I think.
I have also finished the painted table which as usual, I'm not sure about but I think it's better than it was!

I have to do some work soon for a community project of a 'piccy tree' which is applique panels onto hoops which are worn for carnivals festivals etc
I am going to attempt a panel looking at the architecture of the town, hopefully find some unusual features!
I'll keep you posted.

painted table, pumpkin and doll.

I thought I'd show you a table I'm in the middle of painting. We hate to throw things out ( to a fault sometimes!) and we had an Ikea table that was worse for wear. It was actually thrown out by someone else- nothing like a freebe. So it does't matter if it works or not!

I like to draw first on paper, and the image is usually symetrical.

Some folky ladies appeared. I'll take another picture when it's finished.
I have at last finished some more felt dolls, which I'll post more on later.

I'm wondering if I should scent them?

The recent rainfall was good for the garden, the pumpkin has doubled in size. I think I might of put it in the wrong place! i.e it needs to be in a big field.

( It is now twice this size.oops!)

Collage Work.

I have been working on some collage pieces recently. I am still working through similar themes to previous work, and wanted to try an approach which gave more unexpected results, instead of a flat pool of colour as in the watercolours. Collage seems quite good for this. In time I will paint my own papers, but here are a few ideas so far.

'Adorned' A few of my favourite things.

A few sketchbook ideas resulted in a still life painting.


This gave me an idea to paint the things I love, but can't afford to buy! That could be a LOT of paintings.

Lastly, a collage which links back to my current dolls ideas.

'Baking Day'

Which reminds me, I must bake the chocolate cake I have been meaning to bake for weeks, only whenever I buy the chocolate for it  it disappears!
