When I have anytime, usually after ten at night when I am too tired to paint I will try & keep you updated on what we are upto.

  1. I have always loved pastel painting but have never been brave enough to try, I used to just add a little on top of my Watercolours, it is easy to get set in your ways & play safe. 
    So I watched You Tube & it inspired me to finally have a go. I was reminded of the words by Eleanor Roosevelt who said "you should do one thing every day that scares you". I managed two scary things yesterday as I used complementary under painting for the first time too. 
    I also have just learnt about "Paint my Photo" a great site where photographs can upload photos for artists to paint. I am hooked already, I saw a photo of a hare which inspired me to do my first ever pastel painting.

  2. Bouquet of flowers have been like buses for me, not one in sight all year then 3 bouquets at once. Two were for our 20th Wedding Anniversary, twenty years of officially being Jenny Bell, (I did start using the name for the business a while before I was married). The third bouquet was a thank you present. They inspired me to paint some new ceramic designs & this water colour & pastel painting of Lilies & Roses. I don't know if they will sell on a mug but customers have been asking us for sympathy cards lately.

  3. This was inspired by some drawings I did for Kids mug ideas & then it morphed into a Christmas design. But just before I added the tinsel & the baubles I took a photo of the artwork & it works well as a design for all year round too. Just need to remember to add a Joey in the empty pouch!
