Hourly Photo Shoot!

I so enjoyed doing this today, I think I may make it a regular feature :)
Every hour or so I took a moment to capture where I was and what I was looking at or doing....
Shopping this morning I treated myself to a splash of colourful chrysanthemum-potted so it will last a while I hope,and just gorgeous in a nice big pot on the floor here...
My doodle-lady on the phone pad....my daughter left her pen box by the phone and I was on hold for quite a while!
Took time out this morning to carve a pumpkin ready for the weekend :)
Oh my Tassimo how I love thee!!!
Commissioned piece in progress....

Halloween Party Winner!

Just sharing-she won first prize in her Corpse Bride outfit! Sometimes it pays to have a mum who is a textile artist-for those who would like to know, an old sheet was tea-dyed,scrawled on with oil pastels and charcoal,torn into shape,with trails at the back and stitched with chunks of dress net over the top . The veil is on a re-purposed plastic alice band using silk chiffon and one of my own handmade flowers, created to look especially tattered and scraggy and dyed grey on tips of the petals. Top it off with white net gloves ( model's own!),a few strings of pearls and a heap of attitude and you have winning combo!

A very attractive addition to your own or a loved one's art collection.

These were rescued from some signage! I inherited these letters from a thoughtful friend- much silliness was had as there were a bunch of them...enough to make many,occasionally unladylike, words and phrases :)
Anyways, I ,of course just had to do something exciting with these three letters....painted up and attached to a beautiful piece of driftwood which had been waiting for a special project, these rescued letters now adorn a corner of my studio rather beautifully-if I do say so myself-I'm so glad they didn't end up in a bin!!Happy weekend everyone!

Just for fun.....

So there I was being all clever whilst waiting for the girls to finish riding earlier and playing with the timer on my camera,balancing it carefully on the roof of my car and really trying to get just ONE nice shot for my profile pic....seriously, could I have given myself a more stupid hat for this mean and moody pose?!!

I had to share it-I hope I'm not the only one who manages photos like these....
Oh yes, and whilst speaking of cock-ups, I must apologise to those of you who subscribe to my updates via the feedblitz service ( see form on the right of my blog here-if you don't subscribe yet then do give it a try,my blog updates will come right to your inbox, it's so easy!!!)I updated my newsletter appearance and a HUGE pic was on yesterday's update-you will see now that I have put it right and now have a nice neat logo pic at the top of your update mail :) Oops-Sorry about that,please don't be alarmed that I might slow up your inbox with anything that big again....

Work in Progress....

This is my latest commissioned piece, just a few of my 'in progress' shots to share with you today!
This is a large piece and to be created as part of a series of three to be hung together, so quite challenging, but I am so very pleased with the results so far!
Final images wil be posted here tomorrow, so hopefully I have piqued your curiosity enough that you will want to return and see the fruits of my labours in full glory!

Gorgeous photos.....

Had to lie down for this one-I'm not so good with heights and notoriously clumsy-one stumble would be curtains for me here, but what a view!
How beautiful are these colours?!

I just wanted to share these lovely images,taken at the end of August whilst walking up over the clifftops at St Agnes, close to my studio/workshop. It was a tough walk, and it did actually rain a bit too, but wow!-were the views worth it!
I only had my phone for these so they are not best quality, but I hope to get back up there soon as we are having the most wonderful dry autumn and really capture some great shots!
