Its been a busy few weeks, I have managed two trips to Cornwall for inspiration, a 30th Birthday celebration and a bit of wedding planning events ( hair trial etc) for my lovely daughter who is getting married in just under 6 weeks. and a lots of leather work and glass painting.
Below are a few examples of some of the work. The glass was for a Show at the National Trust House Tyntesfield in Bristol last weekend. I added my bit onto the stall of Wight and Wight ( Glass workers at Clevedon Craft Centre) . I demonstrated Traditional glass painting techniques to a few hundred people over 2 days. It was hard work but also a lot of fun and very rewarding.
The leather is for The Blue room in Nailsea. I have been exhibiting work their for the last month. I'm not really sure how its going, but I guess only time will tell. She asked for things suitable for father day, Ok so I know the hair slides are not really suitable but I wanted to try my new dyes out.
Although I am enjoying doing these bits and pieces I am frustrated at not painting. I had such a lot of inspiration in Cornwall I just want to get back to painting. I am ever so slightly annoyed with myself that I committed myself to so much as a distraction and it has slightly taken over.
I did do some painting as I have painted the Pet portrait for the lady who won the competition I ran on my Facebook page a few weeks ago. Hopefully that should arrive with the lady in question today and then I will be able to show you
........and of course my top secret project, I really can't tell you anything about it, not even a hint, but all will be reviled later on. Don't get to excited its not anything life changing.
So no more distractions back to painting it has to be!........... but first I have to do a bit of delivering and visiting, next week, I promise myself, next week!!!
Wish me luck, I am going to need it, I am my own worst enemy !!!
