☆ One last Painting Before Christmas [Friday Art]


Hasn't Christmas popped around quickly? I can't keep up at the moment, I am moving from one day to the next.

Our insanely crazy weekend is behind us and it feels like there is still masses to do....

Probably because I still have masses to do before next Thursday.

But the thing is, none of the things on my list are things I don't want to do. 

Except maybe make the rum balls. That is always an unpleasant task. The stickiness of the mixture in the summer heat, the rum smelling fingers for days afterwards, the fact I gorge myself on the mixture as I attempt to remove it from my hands and I end up with rum ball hang over....

But in amongst the last of the Christmas prep is this little painting for another of my nephews.

[Ree Ree if you don't want the surprise to be spoiled turn around now!!]

This is for my nephew Rosie (he was the recipient of this painting too) and although he is only one + a half I hope that this is a painting he will treasure for a long long time!


What is your most treasured present? Is there something that stands out as one of the best pressies ever? 

Have a great weekend.

By the way - tomorrow (Saturday 18th I will be at the Cowra Farmers Markets @ the show pavillion from 8am - 12 noon.

So if you have a last minute gift to grab, or need some christmas cards + tags with a difference, pop over and say hi!

☆ Courage and Celebration [Life Book]

Week 48 - Courage and Celebration with Serena Bridgeman



I learnt a brand new technique through this weeks Life Book lesson from Serena Brigdeman. And I love the effect it has had on my painting. It feels like an old piece of furniture that has been painted many times + has been scratched off over time.


And it was just a humble jar of vaseline which helped make this beautiful texture.

My tiger is my bravery totem + always has been (I'm sure I've spoken about Tiffee the Tiger before!)

The quote resonates with me so much at the moment. I decided to use one that I use a lot in my life!

Have a great week.
