More drawings

I have a new found love for drawing in pastels and charcoal, I love my new pastels, I now spend much of my time up to my elbows in dust-half the time in house dust, the other half in beautiful soft coloured dust.
I use my new Sennelier pastels for everything including when a family member has an occasion calling for a card!

I love photographing my work too, it brings out a whole new dimension to the art....

Diary of A Seven Year Old Traveller

While thinking about how I can raise funds to take my family on a much needed holiday of a lifetime to America in a few years time, I came across a diary that I had written in 1979 while holidaying in Disneyland, I was seven years old, my youngest child is now seven so it was nice to show it to her. She thinks I had nice handwriting.
In the meantime, i must sell lots of Art to get us there:)

New Passion.....

I have discovered that, as much as I love my miniature making, I love photographing my miniatures too, it somehow brings them to life even more!

I will be experimenting with this over the summer holidays as well as making new miniatures, I think I may explore this further during my second year of college.

I made these fun LPs from the 1980s which I have now added to My Etsy Shop which has been newly restocked today:)
