blogging daily for 30 days!


Yes I am putting myself out there. My aim is to blog daily for 30 days. I have many things to say and then when I try to pin one down it just slips away.

I have a lot of small paintings, note cards, and handmade art journals.  But before I get into that I think I better post this.  It’s only taken me half the day to pick out a photo to attach to this post which is appropriate in my thinking.

Shadows and silhouettes

This all came about from a walk on a sunny morning on the beach.  I saw my shadow and loved the shape it made on the sand so I took some photos on my phone.  This is how this idea progressed (and I actually documented it!).

Then I made a few stencils and have a series of paintings called Shadows & Silhouette Ladies.  Here’s one of them.
