  • Finally All Done!

    I can’t believe how long its been since I last posted here! I’ve decided that unpacking is a lot more stressful than packing … but it’s finally all done – including the 5 boxes which my brother returned to me (after looking after them for the last 18 months) during his visit last week!

    So… what have I been up to? I got my paint trolley from Ikea…

    I broke up all the packing boxes and saved a big pile of assorted shapes to use as canvases, then started painting some of the smaller ones.

    Singing the Blues

    I painted this on recycled cardboard using acrylic paint, acrylic ink and various homemade stamps.

    Lavender Blue

    I painted this on a scrap of plywood salvaged from some packaging using acrylic paint, acrylic ink, clear stamps and a staz-on ink pad.

    There are lots more to show you, but I haven’t finished scanning them all yet, so I’ll post pictures of them during the week.

    I also got a brilliant easel for painting big …

    New Easel

    … as you can see – I’ve already started playing with it. This is just the first few layers – I’ve added two more since I took this picture!! I’ll post another picture when it’s finally finished.

    I’ve also been playing digital … but you’ll have to wait till tomorrow to see them or I’ll never get this posted.

    I’ll leave you with this beautiful view taken on a trip to the Peak District, half an hour from our new home, yesterday.
