We’ve been hit by ‘The Beast from the East’ today, which has resulted in very chilly weather, so I decided to stay in the warm and paint in my kitchen. I don’t like to use oils in the house, so this is painted in gouache on board. This one isn’t for sale. I did some sketching in an antique shop at the weekend and this is based on a drawing I did of some red glassware. I’ve jazzed them up with a bit of artistic license!
Another Tulip painting as I enjoyed doing the last one so much. The shapes are so interesting. I let the painting grow on it’s on rather than being a strict representation of life. I’ll call this ‘Two Flames’ oil on board 15cm squared £125 framed.
I needed an antidote to the cold weather , so I bought some tulips to add a touch of Spring to my World. I think I’ll call this one ‘Happy Bunch’ oil on 15cm squared £125 Framed.
I’ve been out all day at one of those ‘locked in’ puzzle rooms. It was really good fun, our team had to rescue a kidnapped woman! Any how by the time we got home it was dusk and I went straight out to the garden room to paint today’s painting. So this photo was taken in very poor light, I’ll take another tomorrow.
This is my Mog as a kitten. I think I’ll call this one ‘My naughty face’ oil on board 15cm squared £125 framed.

I saw this jug in an independent shop and thought it would be a great prop. I painted this from life in my chilly garage, listening to Radio 2 with my coat on!! I’m hoping to get a chance to paint another later today.
’The Grand Persian’ oil on board 15cm squared. For sale £115 framed during the event £125 framed afterwards. Please contact me for details.
’Grandma’s Rose Bowl’ oil on board 15cm squared. £110 framed during the 30 day challenge and £125 framed afterwards. *** if anyone buys this I will be giving the money to my friend Mandy who may lose her home due to treatment for cancer.
As the roses I got for Valentines Day faded I felt I had to paint them, so I set up a still life and gave myself a challenge. Flowers are something I enjoy painting but I do find them tricky and sometimes start over and over again. This was my lovely Grandma’s rose bowl and I think of her every time I use it, so it brings back lots of happy memories of love.
