Good morning…here is the place to show and chat about art…
My first one this month is a floral acrylic on canvas board

I’ve been working on lots of animals recently, from chickens to owls, but this is one of my favourites:

I’m using the threads more in my work now, rather than simply relying on layered fabrics. It’s proving a fun step on and getting a ‘furry’ look is great fun. :smile:

Heidi that is fabulous,…painting with thread…clever lady
I have a relist today as I have been out all day…first time out for 3 weeks…now to hibernate until May and just paint…lol

Your flowers are lovely @teabreaks! (Un)fortunately the Highland Cow sold today at a fair. Disappointed as I was going to display him in my bedroom but happy of course for the sale and glad he has gone to a lovely new Home! I need to list a couple of other pictures I have recently made and not got round to listing yet,

Including this rather dashing owl!

Do illustrated cards count as art? Ive recently started drawing, Im really enjoying it and I love water colouring(although Im not too good at it) sorry I can’t add a pic but have a look at my card section in my shop if you like.

Hi Brenda, not today I dont think, not through Folksy anyway. BTW, whats the ‘front page’?

(HeidiMeier) #17

This cockerel hasn’t been framed yet and so is not in my shop, but thought you’d like to see him (can’t remember if I’ve shown him elsewhere - sorry if so!!)

(Grimm Exhibition) #18

@GKWatercolourArt I absolutely love the reclining snowman!!! Can I share the image and your link on social media?

(Grimm Exhibition) #19

Im painting seahorses for greeting cards, heres a sneeky midway peek.

Sure, I found a similar image on a free digital wallpaper site, thought it might make a nice watercolour painting. It’s not one I would put up for sale as technically it’s not my original idea.
