We’re in a heatwave at the moment ( and its not even summer yet, winge winge, groan) and haven’t been doing much art at all the last few days.  Seems every flying bug on earth has found my place soon as I turn the lamp on and bring the oils out.  There is a small tear in the flyscreen and one on the flywire door.  The other night it was a constant fight to scoop them out of the oil paint with my pallette knife, but their wings kept getting left behind, so think the oil painting will probably have some of them in it, I hope not.  I HATE SUMMER. Feel better now.thru nightthe elusive butterfly The Oil “Through The Night”, Abstract 6×6″, and “Searching for Butterflys” is 6×4″. Hope your cool and no bugs. Time to start buying salads and cold meats again

far too hot to cook.  I pray all the firebugs have gone to Iceland, after last summers  inferno,  it kind of scares me they’ll come out of the woodwork again. My thoughts and prayers are still with those who were forced to endure that.

Two of these I did some time ago and one just recently, I am half way through a tiger pastel painting at the moment, he’s quite a large one compared to what I have been doing lately. Hopefully will have him finished the end of this week.

Popped another couple of ACEO’s  I’ve done over the last few days,these were done in oils with a palette knife. Something I am only just learning to work with.

ab vase flow Tomorrow must learn how to add a shopping cart on my site.  Don’t think there’s any great difficulty in it, hope not any ways.  Sales at ebay for some reason have just gone?  totally, with only 3 in the last 3 weeks, after sailing along nicely it came to a crunching halt the same time as my computer was hacked and crashed, the same day.   I can’t understand how over night like that something can stop so abruptly.  Its wierd.

I spent a night or two going through some of the other art blogs here on wordpress, thoroughly enjoyable, and getting to see some pretty awesome artworks also.

I’m trying to save up for some heavy duty watercolour paper, a couple of brushes,  and hope to try some watercolour paintings soon,  haven’t done any watercolour for a long time, and I certainly am no where near mastering it, but will be fun any way.
