Hello everyone. This week I managed to get my family Christmas cards printed, cut, folded and trimmed - no spoiler image of them, though, just in case!

This is the other job I’m working on…

Lots of lovely art you are all very productive.
This is a card I’ve made for a friend’s birthday. It didn’t end up like my original plan! Things went a bit wrong so I decided to just carry on and experiment instead. Now I actually really like the end product. A happy surprise!

Sometimes experiments and ‘accidents’ work out the best! This is a really colourful and uplifting design.

completed yesterday, ref0188, ‘Mullion Cliff toward Mullion Island’, gouache on HP 300g smooth paper. This is approx A3 in size, and I am never sure as to whether I should mount and back for Folksy. Adds a lot to the size and postal costs. Maybe a ‘variation’ of a product,

That’s beautiful!

I don’t do originals on paper, but for my prints I leave them unmounted if it’s a fairly standard size so easy to frame, but when it’s an awkward size that needs mount cutting to a special size then I’ve included it.

thanks Kim

thanks Brenda. My favourite Mullion artist is Stephen Bradbury. I bought a gouache painting from him in 1995. Well inspired by him since, he has his position in my lounge in Wolverhampton, (see attached). My mentor, he used to be an illustrator, famous for book covers, by Rosamunde Pilcher, Arthur C Clarke

Hi David @McCormack. I do mounts as an option, about 80% of customers choose unmounted if that helps. You could easily not give that option and just sell them unmounted. Love your painting by the way.
Great to catch up with you here Brenda @teabreaks, as I know you won’t be around on Daily Listings any more (sob!).
Love your commission @GKWatercolourArt. I’ve just finished one too, a lady wanted me to paint her husband’s classic Volvo car. Their name is Ferris, so she wanted a Ferris wheel in it somewhere, which felt a little contrived, but I’m always happy to oblige where I can!.
