Did you miss me?! Phew! It feels like I have been away for ages, in fact I have been enjoying some wonderful family time in the South West of England, and a very good time was had by all helped by unusually good weather. I always feel like I will have loads of time for my art while I am away but in fact it rarely works out like that ... I did manage a bit of doodling in my Art Doodle Love book and had a chance to play with my wonderful new neon Montana pens. LOVE them :-) These pens will add a fabulous splash of colour over any background, and you know how I like colour.
We did some exploring around the local area. I'm so happy to randomly come across little treasure like this when I am wandering around somewhere new. Great use of a Barbie doll!
And this naturally vintaged and distressed and overgrown phone box was just across the road from where we were staying. Now we mostly have mobile phones these are almost becoming obsolete but they are delight to see and such a part of our English countryside:
We went to visit the Eden Project. Well, it was almost on our doorstop, it would have been rude not to:
And while out and about at the seaside I was delighted to capture this little fella shaking his tail feathers haha! Not really in focus I know, but funny all the same :-)
And my old girl just about exhausted herself running on the beach every day!
Of course I have come home to a mountain of washing and an even bigger mountain of ironing
(although I may yet decide to ignore the ironing and just go creased!), and also a half-done bathroom. We inherited a bathroom with our house that was probably last done in about 1970. We have put up with it for long enough (although at the same time it is such a big job I couldn't face having it done!) so while we were away the builders made a start ...... this is a work in progress pic ....
Of course the contents of the bathroom and airing cupboard have to be temporarily stored somewhere, and you guessed it ... it is mostly in my little art studio :-( Do you know how much stuff it is possible to cram into an airing cupboard?! I had no idea until I emptied it and I found all sorts of things I didn't even know we had.
Ah well, hopefully normal art service will hopefully be resumed soon .......
Byee for now, hope you are all having a great summer!
