    Years ago I was asked by a customer to paint a design to go with the words "Love you to the Moon & back". I did a really quick design out of my head of two rabbits sitting under a tree. It has been one of my best selling designs ever since. I attended a local trade show in March where I met members of the Coquetdale Squirrel Group. They loved the Moon Rabbits but they only wanted Squirrels designs, so I came up with these Moon Squirrels, it took twice as long to paint but I will be happy if it sells half as well as the Moon Rabbits!

  2. Brendas garden
    I love to visit my sister's garden & this is the second time I have painted it. It is a long narrow terraced garden but it looks amazing in the summer months. She puts my garden to shame. I buy plants at the flower shows then leave them for a couple of weeks until they are just about dead before I get round to planting them. I still have a Fig Tree waiting to be planted which I brought from Southport Flower Show last August, I think I am better sticking to painting gardens.

    Garden Party

    I had a meeting with Durham Women's Institue about suppling some gifts for them to sell. The night before as usual I was working until I was too tired to do any more. But as soon as I got into bed I had an idea for a design for the WI. Once it was on my mind I could not sleep & I had to get up again & put some ideas down on paper.

    I am glad I did as it has turned out lovely, I can personalise the Jam label so it will make a great present for any jam makers out there. If I had waited till morning it could of turned out totally different.
