Sunday Sketches - An Owl!

Hi guys I hope you all had a great Easter weekend! We had beautiful weather and a lovely family get together. I feel like I've done nothing but eat and eat but I guess that's what family gatherings are all about ;0)

This week I've been finishing up my commission. I've had to paint two candles along with the Jesus painting that I did. I'm in the process of finishing those up so will share with you as soon as they are ready. I've also been working on my sign in page for the Travelling sketchbook that I'm involved in. That is finally ready to go and I'll be posting it on asap. We've had lots of public holidays this last week so the post office isn't open :0(

I've also been making lots of new pieces for my market that is happening next week. It's hopefully going to be a big one as it's a week before mothers day. Fingers crossed we do well :0)

I've also been trying some new things (as you would have read if you saw my last post). My cousin asked me the other day if I would paint an owl and I was keen to step outside the box and so sketched up this drawing on a canvas sheet. I'm loving those by the way :0)

This is what popped into my head! I'll be painting it this week and will show you how it turns out. I found the sketch came quite easily I hope I don't spoil it when I paint it :0)

This is a new piece that I made this week, I really do love this red sparkly clay that I bought recently. It's so pretty especially after a coat of gloss varnish!

This light blue is so bright and cheerful! I'm just so addicted to making these pretties :0)
I am trying to get around to visit you all it's just been such a busy week but I promise I'll get there :0)
