Poppies and Cat

Been a while since I blogged...!  SO I'm pursuing the jewellery  and oh so want to do enamelling again. Also I've  really put effort into offering Custom Pet Portraits in acrylic. Some of the pets have ended up in my own work as print for sale onto canvas or paper.
Just spent the last hour looking at most beautiful enamelling work..I  love this medium !. Incorporates design,pattern,theme,composition and making..right up my street;).
Also been great to get going on painting again, I'm bit partial to the square canvas.  There's new website to this portrait idea. .  Really trying to keep things simple by separating it off the main site. Had to become a marketing feind to get this
Next I'm going to pick on my own budgies for the next painting..named "Millie and Blue"  It's all 'Blue" fault that I have these two.. He turned up  ( from nowhere;) after few weeks, no sign of owner. Felt sorry for him ...decided he needed a friend. $11.99 later we have 'Millie" ..right little couple these two have become. Actually really sweet, so affection little peps:).....

The Beads turn out irresistable and I ended up happily designing.

'A Knife and a Fork and a Bottle and a Cork" Children's book finally here:)

Titled "A Knife and a Fork and a Bottle and a Cork."

This Children's Book written by Howard Schrager..Illustrations by Sarah Madsen.

Howard has written an educational children's book using Riddle Rhymes to let u guess the 50 States.

This is a Trilogy. BTW Book 2 is nearly done ready to go to press (based upon Cities.)

Amazing to get it back in a physical book sense, this for me was an wonderful opportunity to work with Howard and his ideas on these Riddle Rhymes. Took me a while to get an idea of what kind of "style" to develop for these Riddles. (now think I've got it ::)))
Book 2 is called "Chicken in the Car and the Car Can't Go"
 If you'd like to order this first book, let me know Priced $12.95. can be through my paypal account.
