Hi Brenda, cute card. Its been a long time since I have been on this thread, I have a week off this week and made a concerted effort to pick up my brushes yesterday and do some painting I have very little stock left on here or over there and seem to have had a rund of art sales in last few weeks so thought I had better pull my finger out :wink: so yay for painting! Just listed this one

Good morning,that is a fun painting Brenda. I like the soft look @oraleashannonwhite, it’s probably just down to texture of the canvas plus thickness of ink. I have varying success with lino printing, not done any for ages though.

Added a few ACEO’s now too

Hello May!

I can’t believe we’re 5 months into 2017 already.
I’ve spent most of it working through an Artist Identiti Crisis… i think I’m finally out at the other end now. Ive found a way to ‘mix it up’ a bit without straying too far from what I’ve been doing. It involves the base of each drawing being black drawing ink in various forms. Here’s a piece I’ve worked on today, got some more detailed ones on the work table at the moment.

just popping in to bump the thread.
Had a few days of feeling off colour so haven’t done much painting…back shortly once I get my mojo back x

Nice to see everyone’s been busy… Brenda, you deserve the time off! You need it to re charge the inspiration sometimes. :slight_smile:

Here are a few of pieces I made over the weekend.

thank you Lowri…very hard work looking after a hubby that cannot do anything for himself…
I do get a break when he is at hospital 3 times a week and tomorrow I am going to town by bus for the first time in 45 years!!!, We made the conscious decision to sell my car because I cannot get out enough to make it worthwhile. The RAC< MOT<INsurance etc is due at the end of this month and I only did 900 miles last year…so it will be cheaper to use the buses and taxis…and by not paying those bills will give me some money in the bank. No more worrying about parking, yellow lines, car breakdowns etc…brilliant.
Love your weird and wonderful artwork…keep it up…
