Are We Really Halfway?

Already,halfway into 2016!!!!
It's been such a busy year so far and yet the 'to-do' list seems longer than ever.
I am musing,making plans-including a rather hopeful plan for a little time out, although that won't be for a while yet, but it is nice to pencil in....
lots of ideas, the tough part is deciding where to go and what to do next so I can evolve my business the way I really WANT it to go-and boost my creativity tenfold to keep on moving forwards!
A thoughtful day...

The Guild Hall is in the centre of St Ives town and this is promising to be an amazing show with an incredible array of top quality artists one the ground floor and jewellery makers above. There is a children's activity corner with facepainting so very family-friendly AND a full bar with snacks available too.  There will be a private viewing evening 6pm to 9pm on the 22nd ( Friday). Please contact me for tickets-snacks and refreshments also will be served to VIP visitors whilst they browse and entry remains free of charge throughout.

29 Faces Challenge

So, this year will be the year of much art and I want to focus my attentions on creating a more disciplined practice.I try to draw every day, but sometimes life is allowed to get in the way of this...with that in mind, I have joined 29 Faces Challenge, a fab group via facebook, where all manner of newbie and experienced artists post their daily face creation. It's a great way to keep you focussed on finding the time, AND my newsfeed is full of delicious arty goodness! What a fantastic idea ( it's not too late to join if you fancy a try!) Here are my faces for days 1 and 2....
