Hello friends...welcome back.
Slowly but surely my many friends from Facebook are finding their way here to my blog. I'm happy about that.
Well what have I been up to this week, you ask?
Monday I met my former shop manager Carol at a local tea house for a nice cup of tea. It was a dreary, rainy day and hot tea with good company was the perfect fix.
It is still dreary, cold and wet so I have been spending lot's of time in my cozy home studio.
I am teaching my first ever
painting workshop in April.
Happy to say that 8 out of the 10 seats have sold within 2 days of posting!

We can't wait to see you at
I had fun using Iron Orchid Designs
typography stamps to add some inspirational words to my wreath.
Want to try IOD stamps?
Click HERE to find a local Stockist, you will love them.
My students will be learning to paint some fun leaf designs also.
It should be a very fun Workshop.
I also have been playing with loose style watercolor painting. Using lot's of water for soft illusional florals. It is my favorite style of painting.
I love how just a little tweaking here and there can change the
look of a painting.
Above is a loose rose study.
Same painting, however, this one has some paint splatters and I added some darker colors for contrast.
It may not be for everyone, but I adore a beautiful loose floral.
My final painting was a fun and very lose design
of pink delphinium.
So much fun to just let loose and play with the paint.
So here we are midweek and that is what I have been up to.
Leave me a comment and tell me what you are up to!
Until next time....be kind and stay creative.
