Exciting things! This week my grandma entered my art into a competition/ exhibition and today I took her in to collect the pieces and found I’d won second place in my category and that someone had brought the piece!

It’s really exciting, I always feel surprised when someone not related to me not only wants my art but wants to pay for it as well. I’m really chuffed about it! :-)

I finished this today, finally BUT my Grandmas scanner did awful awful things to the colour quality so you only get to see a black and white version of it for now. I’m so happy with the results! I was telling my Grandma about how I was having trouble finding a white gel pen or something similar to complete the piece and the next day she had found one for me- Go Gran!

A project for a rainy day

hey look, someone narrated my week.

So look what I discovered today! My pet rockĀ  has split and is growing its new leaves, I love watching plants grow and change- exciting stuff!

Also today I finished reading My Sister’s Keeper, I loved this book and definitely recommend it but how dare you Jodi Picoult.

So I was super uncool yesterday and didn’t get around to posting anything! But here are the two projects I have been working on this week whenever I have a moment between work.

I posted a WIP shot of the painting about a week ago, it’s nearly finished but the fabric pen I used to use to do stars and white highlights died so I’m in the middle of a decision to buy another one, hunt down (from somewhere) a white ink pen, or use acrylic paints…. decisions decisions…

The wee clay rabbit was a bit of a muck around to actually start using the clay I brought a while back. He’s a bit of a tribute to one of my ultimate favourite books Watership Down by Richard Adams. I might paint it but not too sure, he’s a bit scruffy around the edges but I’m really proud of it as far as first attempts go!

Hey guys! I’m really sorry about not being here and not uploading anything the last few days. I’ve just been super busy at work, 11 days in a row! Anyway, I do some some pictures to upload, so they should be up in about an hour. Everything will be back to normal next week, thank you for bearing with me!

Hey guys, Sorry I’ve been quiet these last few days, work is hella hectic, I’m trying to organise my professional placement for university and I have been visiting my parents. PLUS I am trying to finish my recent WIP. Hopefully tomorrow.
I’m still here and I’m still trying.

Today was a good day! Amidst trying to organize professional placement for university, I visited an op shop and picked up 6 ‘new’ books for my library

  • A children’s book of verse
  • The Three Musketeers Alexandre Dumas
  • The Time Traveler’s Wife Audrey Niffenegger
  • My Sister’s Keeper Jodi Picoult
  • Emma Jane Austen
  • Black Beauty Anna Sewell

I already have a copy of Black Beauty but this one was really old and only 50c soooo you know. I got all of those for on $4.50, I was pretty excited!

I then picked up some white charcoal pencils, hopefully they will work well for doing highlights on my watercolours but I suppose it will be a bit of trial and error. I also got some modelling clay because I haven’t played with clay in forever and I’d like to have a bit of a go at it.

Happy Monday, guys!

I’m still here and I’m still doing things! My projects are done a lot more carefully and thoughtfully these days, bear with me.

A quiet place

I read Animal Farm and I’ve been thinking about it for four days now.

I was inspired to do some pig art. Here you go.

I stayed up till one last night finishing Allegiant, the third book in Veronica Roths Divergent trilogy. I kind of jumped on the band wagon with this one but I’m really glad I did! It’s been a while since a book has made me laugh out loud or cry.

The Internet at home isn’t working- I don’t know why, I don’t understand these things- So can’t upload anything today. I’m not uploading phone quality pictures of my art anymore so I’ll have to wait until the situation is worked out.

Sunday mornings and strange dreams.
