Brad built the 5.5 x 4.5 cabin almost single handed and I did all the small parts and the exterior and Interior painting..... What a Labour of Love. I still have to do a large collage to go above the plan chest and some pictures need to be framed for the sitting area and I also have to cover my seats.... the cable need to be joined to the mains but I can get electricity by an extension lead.
We also need to finish the white pebbles and landscaping in the garden.
In the meantime I now have to get back to my Murals and other design and artwork.

I must take stock today!.....I have spent nearly 4 months building my new studio, decorating and renovating nearly every room in my house and some furniture, planning 3 new Murals and hoping to complete another one I started in June......Oh and I also have a part time job.
I have completely neglected my websites ( my existing one which seems to no longer exist and a new one which needs so much work on it I have not managed to get it live.... and I am paying for the hosting..... Hello!.. I still exist and I am open for business but it looks like the launch of the website with my new products could be much later than planned. If only I could split myself into many parts.
I also apologise for the delay in starting two paintings for my friend, Vivien. Thanks for being so patient.
So today I must hang fire on the completing my kitchen (painting the tiles and cupboards) and sort out my paperwork... make a few phone calls and put a plan of action together!

I know my blog posts are rather infrequent at the moment but I have been busy and pre occupied lately. We get our new studio delivered this week and it comes in a kit form so Brad and I have to assemble it ourselves (scary thought) and I shall be painting it and staining the wood floors as well.....so I think the next few weeks will be a combination of "building, decorating, sorting out furniture and also trying to get my home straight as I currently work from my back bedroom and I cannot wait to get this room clean and organised. Meanwhile I have just started a new Mural which is the "sister" to "Wisteria Wonderland"..... I may have to continue and finish the project later this month but I wanted to get the overall sketch and layout started.
Then when my studio is up and running I shall continue with the new collection of designs I am doing for cushions......... hopefully by then I can be a more regular blogger and share more of my images and work.

|Designs intended for Rotary printing|
Designers out there! .... I need some feedback.
For quite some time I have been thinking about offering some private tutorials/demonstrations of traditional hand painting techniques for surface pattern designs, specifically intended for screen printing (flat bed or rotary) I would also concentrate on repeating patterns and working to technical restrictions............ I would only be interested in instructing qualified designers who may have not experienced more traditional methods of design disciplines. What do you think and would there be any interest?
