Welcome to my humble abode....It's not very big... an it's a bit of a squeeze to get all my stuff in...I still have stacks of books in the hall cupboard and in our bedroom... My work is all around the house... and the loft is full... what can I do? Tidy up!! ... And Spring clean!!....I hear you all say....I did...Well.....a little, just before I took these photo's.. I hope you like my space...
First is the space behind my sewing machine postcards and colour charts...
......It's always changing like the wind.
Next the ideas board
Very very important also the radiator where I prop up 'work in progress'.Click on photo's to in large the images -The paintings on the radiator are of a walk way that goes out across the marshes - West Mersea - Oil on paper, It gives the most amazing finish the light bounces off and gives the paintings a life of their own.
May be this is a better photo
Notice my lovely drying rack a great idea details on how to make one see Sherrie York at http://brushandbaren.blogspot.com
Mine is just a bit of recycled architrave and a packet of pegs for £1....Fantastic..
I love a bargain...something that's simple to make...AND it works!
My beautiful printing press
Together with paintings in progress propped up and waiting their turn.
Stuffed to the gills......I desperately need more shelving..And more ROOM!
The view along the work bench and through the window
Notice all my chipped cups, recycled to hold brushes and rulers dried seed pods and all sorts of bits and bobs, drinking straws, lolly pop sticks etc, etc.....which I will call.. lets say.....tools of the trade.
My work in progress
New work... painting on plywood.. back to my roots oil painting...ooh I love it.
And last but not least my dolls
Open up the picture to see the little fellows in their pram...notice the little button wheels...
I shall be on holiday down in the West Country for the next week, so I will wish you all a happy weekend have fun and live your lives to the full.
* REMEMBER* RAFFLE PRIZE. Don't forget to leave a message on the 'RAFFLE POST' if you'd like to enter the drawing.... I shall reveal the final prize when I get back from my hols.
