Well, tomorrow is the start of another exhibition.  These are just a few of the paintings which will be exhibited.  Last year i sold two paintings.  Hoping to sell at least one this time. 

I have avidly followed this blog now for over a year.  Kelly Rae Roberts totally inspires me!  So, on reading her last post i totally jumped at the chance to become an affiliate for her ebook.  I am so hoping that i can get some people out there to buy this so that i can buy it myself!  Even if you can't, check out her fantastic blog anyway.  I'm sure the inspiration will spread to you too!

'The Box: Remembering the Gift'

This makes me think about all the creative whispers in my head.  All the things i want to be.  Life is too short to conform to what is the 'norm'!

what in your life is calling you?

when all the noise is silenced,
the meetings adjourned,
the lists laid aside,
and the wild iris blooms by itself in the dark forest,
what still pulls on your soul?

in the silence between your heartbeats hides a summons.
do you hear it?
name it, if you must,
or leave it nameless,
but why pretend it is not there?

Searching for inspiration

I've been searching for a while now.  Wanting to find like minded souls who maybe offer e-courses or group art get togethers.  My search continues!!  Although sometimes i feel that i could maybe organise the thing that i am searching for....but then i will need to search for people to jump on this creative train with me!  What is it i am looking for exactly??

Anyway, i found this blog 101 Bird Tales and staring right at me was this quote

'Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up'
Pablo Picasso

How true that is!

'Claude' arrived on my doorstep last week!
With this little note :)
He is the most gorgeous door stop i think i've ever seen because he was made by my friend 'Marti'.  He is much larger than i'd anticipated and looks great proping open my bedroom door!!  I love him....because he was lovingly hand made :)

And here is 'Marti'....go check out her blog and her shop!  My clever lovely little friend :)

New in shop

My newest item in my 'other' shop!  What do you think?
