  • Finished

    Finished. It is the holy grail for all artists. I have a saying pinned on my pinboard above my desk (well, I did until we gutted my studio, but let’s play as if it is still there):   ‘To start is fun, but to finish is ecstasy.’   And I really believe that. I’ve always…

    G is for Graffiti

    I had some great fun yesterday. Now considering the title of this post, you might wonder what I have been up to. But no, I’m far too much of a goody-two-shoes to actually go out and graffiti anything. But what I can do is a piece of artwork in the graffiti style…well, as close as…

    Coloured zentangle

    I’ve been fascinated by this background from my acrylic experiments last week. it has been yelling at me to create something from it. But I don’t know what. So last night I printed off a couple of copies of the square, and since they are reproduceable copies, I felt free to make as many mistakes…
