As you can see, this particular painting is painted in a very different style to my other work. I had a specific idea in my head that I wanted to produce a Christmas icon. The image was in my head that I wanted so I just went with the flow!! I also painted it on unprimed canvas, which was lovely and I think added to the look of the finished piece.
I will be selling Christmas cards portraying this image this coming Saturday 9th December (2017) at Fakenham Makers Market.
I have had the pleasure to be asked to do a drawing of the nativity to go on the front of the December issue of our church magazine. I am always nervous when I get specific commission especially because of the subject, I didn’t want it to turn out too sweet. I am actually pleased with the result and have used the image for a Christmas card. You can buy the cards from my Etsy Shop! 🙂
I love this time of year. It’s a chance to add glitter to my already colourful existence! I’ve been enjoying making Christmas wrap and cards with the knowledge of what I don’t sell I can use myself! 🙂 The wrap below has just gone onto my Etsy shop. These prints were for some glittery reindeer cards.
I especially love these blue moose cards that I’ve done! 🙂
I’m super pleased with my display in the Norwich Gift Emporium which I set up yesterday. I’m really happy to take advantage of this opportunity in the run up to Christmas. It’s in a prime position in the city, so lots of opportunity for me to spend money too! I’ll let you know how I get on 🙂
Special order napkins in a bag. Block printed vintage fabric, eco dyed with crocus petals. These have now been collected and on their way to a new home!Sometimes I’m sorry to see thing go ’cause I like them so much 🙂
Had a good day at the Westacre Fair yesterday, had some lovely people though and a good response to my work. Here’s my stall.All of this and lots of other work will be in on show in our Gallery at the weekend.It would be lovely to see you if you are in the area! 🙂
