Some image details from a series of paintings to be shown at the Seascape Gallery, Godalming, 18 January - 16 February 2010. Living on the tip of the Cornish peninsula brings an awareness of the elements, the movement and moods of the sea and challenging weather conditions. All about transparency, colour and clarity Exploring light effects through the use of acrylic interference mediums (green and copper) and acrylic space gel.

Not wanting Cathy at Menopausal Musing to feel all alone when it comes to 'displacement activities' I decided to undertake a few of my own today and enjoyed a very pleasant few hours of play. Trouble is, there's quite a lot of clearing up to be done and glitter everywhere - even on me! The sun was shining too and the brisk, North East wind dried the washing on the line in no time. I used newspaper, aluminum foil (including gold chocolate wrappers) brown paper, sequins and glitter.


A belated thank you to Milly whose fantastic November giveaway of an original drawing went to Carolina - on a subject of her choice! Milly also sent a gift box of some of her stunning art cards to all who entered her giveaway - me included. Thanks again Milly, they really are lovely! A great big thank you (also belated, sorry Libby) to Libbyquilter of Paper Napkin Poetry - yours truly being the lucky recipient of her wonderful November giveaway - a parcel to 'bring smiles and comforts', yielding up many smooth, dark chocolate goodies, delicious premium double choc cocoa powder, assorted teas and squeezy huckleberry honey. There was also a notebook with seahorses on the cover. A truly lovely piece of handwoven cloth. A scented candle ........ And a Libby original handmade fabric postcard!! Love the stamp. Love the colours. Love the stitching. But most of all, I love the thought. Thank you again Libby.
