'Life' and and exciting post!!!


Well first of all this week has been very interesting! I was contacted through my etsy shop the other day by someone from an organisation in town that was looking for local artists who would like to have a stall at this new weekly market. It's massive for me as it's right in the heart of town and should attract thousands of people!!! So I've been busy busy busy making lots of new pendants, I've made some new ones with added charms and tried a few new ones with prints of some of my paintings too. I shall take photos soon to show you what I've been working on! :0)

This painting is another in my series of this style, I decided to call it 'Life' as this person looks like they are pondering lots of things, it was actually taken from a sketch I did a couple of weeks ago when I was feeling a bit bummed out but I like how I've managed to turn it into something more positive now. I really LOVE working on these they are just so relaxing! I'm going to try making another pendant from this print I think!!

Where have I been?! You have been so busy lately! And it is interesting to catch up on your blog and read the post where you were discouraged by that local artist' shop and now here you are in this latest post with such wonderful news! Congratulations to you - you soooo deserve it and I just love your art. Thank you too for your sweet comments about my painting - I admire your work daily (toothfairy) and am so excited to be painting too!
BTW, have you considered doing Diana's 100 illustrations book? Check it out if you haven't done so already, you would be perfect!! xo

YAY for being approached for your fantastic art!! :) You deserve all praise that comes your way! :) I just wanted to let you know that you inspired me greatly. After seeing this painting and being born on Earth Day (April 22) I did a sketch of my own similar to your artpiece (March 29, 2011 on my blog). Hope you don't mind.
