…and breathe…

Well, I’m back. I always try to be positive and look on the bright side, but the past few months had me temporarily defeated. It’s a long story, one I will share soon, but at the moment I’d rather get this party started again and […]

Make Waves!

Make Waves!

It’s time to stop worrying about what other people think and just have fun! More finger painting fun with this girlie, and although she’s not quite as loose as the last two I’m still quite happy with her. I’m not quite sure whether she’s actually […]

Something New..

Something New..

I’ve been doing a bit of finger painting lately, as part of my continuing efforts to loosen up, have fun and try new things. It seems like every time I do manage to loosen up a bit, I do really well for one or two […]

Time for some more of the 29 Faces challenge. I’m actually not too far behind now, it’s just a matter of making time to take photo’s and write about it 🙂 By the way, these three little paintings are in my etsy store at the […]

Faces, seven eight nine

Time I shared more faces here – I have been doing them, just haven’t had the camera out. And I promised myself that I’d use the good camera from now on (my camera phone is awful). Day seven – a bald bird, for a change… […]
