Trying to paint a picture a month, and apart from choosing a colour scheme, I'm not choosing a style, I haven't thought it through, I've just painted on a whim. Maybe a bad thing. This was from a photo of Bridal scene where the wedding cars stopped and the bridesmaids got out for some fresh air, and one was putting on her lippy ! It was just such a fun picture, I had to have a go.

Long time between posts, but that doesn't mean to say that I've been tardy by any means. I've done a couple of portraits lately, and have forgotten to post them on here. So here is a concerted effort. I painted a portrait of someones ninety two year old nanna, they liked it so much, that I was asked to paint a portrait of the brother. So here tis. Although, we can all see clearly, that he wears a uniform, I've purposely only suggested the badge on the cap and the checks on the band. I wanted him to shine through as a person, not just an officer.

This was my xmas gift to my oldest and goldest friend. She asked for something with wavy lines to put on her wall. I really felt out of my comfort zone, as I "DRAW". And here she had asked for something , well, abstract.
So, I calmed myself down, after she told me she would be so proud to tell her friends that I had painted it for her. I freaked out, because, I paint pretty pics, not uncontrolled lines. So, I did paint wavy lines, But in my mind it is the waves that she loves to look at. She of course can see anything that she wants to.
She tells me she loves it.
