An art box and work in progress

Hi guys well this week has just flown by and I'm constantly feeling like I'm running out of time during the day. With a home business, two kids and my creative things I love to do I just never feel like I get enough done. I've been slowly adding pieces to my shop which in its self seems to take quite a while when you take photos and upload things, writing descriptions etc. I didn't get a chance to do something for illustration friday but I did manage to paint one of my art boxes that I mentioned in my last post. I've painted another version of one of my previous paintings and I really like how it came out. I will list it in my shop but I'll wait until I can take a decent photo, I find natural light so much better.






This work in progress is called 'Rose' and she was a sketch inspired by some photos I took in our garden the other morning. Our roses are out and blooming beautifully, they smell so gorgeous. I really love these photos and I'm going to try then out in my pendants too as I think they are so bright and pretty. The sketch is a sneak peak I shall show you the finished piece that I hope to work on tomorrow :0)

I thought you might enjoy some of the flowers from our garden!!
