Paint Party Friday - The Romantics

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I last posted. We've been away at a family wedding, had a market as well as helping out at my little one's school, the lead up to Christmas is starting to get crazy already.

I'm now back into some kind of routine and I've been thinking about which direction to take my art next. When I started my art journey a few years ago (after a long break without creating) it was children's art and illustration that first caught my attention. Since then I seem to have gone in all sorts of different directions, jewellery, mixed media, figurative art. Lately I've been feeling the call back to childrens art. So after our weekend away I was inspired by all the love in the air at my little sisters wedding and created this piece with a few different characters that I've been playing around with.

'The Romantics'........
 I created some dancing frogs a while back for an Illustration Friday piece and I felt like they needed to be brought out to play again. This one really needed a moustache heheheh
 
 Really love the snuggly owls!
Ants in love!

I'm working on some hand painted T-shirts for some family members for Christmas so you should see some of these characters re-appearing :0)
I'm looking forward to catching up with you all over the weekend it's been a while since I've been able to blog surf etc and I need my fix! :0)
