Sneaky peek, Work in progress.. Day 1 of New Mural

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.

Sunflower Sketches....

It seems a while since I posted anything here on my blog, so I thought that I would share some work that I started last week. A friend wanted me to paint a small picture for his Mother who loves Sunflowers.  Many years ago I  created a whole Sunflower collection for textiles but I have not painted this flower for ages even though I have a great collection of photographs that I have taken from my garden last year. I decided on a couple of interpretations.... although if I have time I would also like to do another style..... more painterly perhaps?  I wasnt sure which would be the most suitable.....what would your choice be?

Calling All Surface Pattern Designers!

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?

Sam and Feline Peacock..nature and bling!

New framed prints of my originals "Sam" and "Feline Peacock"
Managed to sneak in these two little lovelies for the show tomorrow....Brads framing is fabulous... love all the gold..... I know its the bling in me!........ They are two prints from my original artwork. "Sam" is of course a red squirrel which I am lucky to see here in Northumberland as they are rare in the UK now. The "Feline Peacock is a quirky interpretation of my friends cat Poppy in the centre of the Peacock butterfly which during the summer last year I managed to get quite a few photos of.
