well, here we are in 2018...another year and lots of plans and ideas in my head.....
This year will certainly be different to any others that I have had.....With the loss of a loved one, it is time to pick myself up, dust myself off and get motivated.
SO....as well as doing my crochet designs, I need to get more painting done.
I have three online shops...one on ebay...
then one on folksy...
www.folksy.com/shops/teabreaks

and another one on etsy.

...this painting was listed on etsy this morning. It is a 7x5 watercolour landscape and is an original and not a print.
It has been inspired by the beautiful scenery around my home in Wales UK....
I am so lucky to live in such a beautiful place and as well as the mountains, waterfalls etc, I have a beautiful sea view across the channel to Devon.....what more inspiration could a girl want.

well another year is here and hopefully a good one.....nothing can be as bad as last year was, so onwards and upwards......
I started the year by doing some hand painted bookmarks...just to do something a little bit different....they take longer than paintings because you have to paint on both sides and then they need to be laminated......
I am quite pleased with the results, which are for sale in my folksy shop

Well, winter is almost here and this morning there was a lot of ice on the cars and roof tops. Luckily we didn't get any snow, although a lot of people in the North of the UK did.
I am glad that I have no need to go out anywhere and am happy to sit indoors paintings.
Looking out to sea from where I sit is always lovely....although sometimes when the cloud comes down I cannot see more than a few yards.

Yesterday I got out my acrylic paints and painted a 7x5 floral impressionist painting.
I get more paint on ME than I do on the paper but I did enjoy painting something a bit different to my usual landscapes.
Here is the finished painting which is now for sale in my folksy shop

we have now headed into November and the countdown to Christmas......the weather seems to be holding out quite well so far but I am sure the seasons are changing to different timescales now.
To brighten the day, I painted this pink fantasy painting yesterday.
Just 7x5" and available in my folksy shop

well after a short rest from painting, I decided to paint an 8x6 watercolour yesterday. I haven't done anything other than aceos for a few months, so this was an enjoyable and interesting experience.
Here is the finished painting
