|Decided to paint over an old large canvas and came up with this face. I have been recently going to a great yoga class and when I look at this painting it helps me to focus and calms me. Whenever I relax in yoga I see white light hence the title of this piece..|

|Have been playing around with clay over the past few days and decided to alter an accordion type book that I have had for awhile|
|I will probably add photos of our visits to the park to the inside tags and decorate it further|
|the colours I have used are definitely influenced by the colours and textures I see when visiting our favourite parks and woods|
|I have had this plaque for a long time and have used alcohol inks along with the clay to incorporate it into the book|
|Made this quick moo for the number challenge over at moo mania..be sure to check out the other entries too. .|

|Everyday I see this robin that comes to the bird feeder I have put on the conservatory....makes me happy when I see it so did a quick painting for Happy Paint Party Friday|
The painting is made up of many layers of paint scratched into for lots of deep texture.
Thanks for all your suggestions for printers....have ordered some cards to be professionally printed of my paintings for a start so be sure to check my Etsy store soon.

|Coots with Attitude |
My son loves coming with me to feed the birds around various parks around Liverpool..then when we get home we learn all about them in our bird book..coots have white markings and moorehens have red.
|I made these Easter cakes with the help of my other son and came back 5 mins later to have one with a cup of tea and he had ate all the little eggs..ha ha!|
|Been playing around transferring images to clay..these are just from my epson so quite pleased with the result as they were just an experiment really|
|Made a quick collage for TMTA where the theme is butterflies. We are having slightly warmer weather now but its still too cold for butterflies..have a good Easter holidays...|
