Half way through my challenge and I know I have not achieved enough. I look at my tiny studio and compare it with the space that I will have at the Festival and there is just not enough there. Once I make up my prints it will be better but I am going to have to work a lot harder……just not sure how yet.
I started this canvas yesterday and finished a lot sooner than I intended but I just like the simplicity and the colour combinations and decided to stop. It is just variations of brown to red with yellow in and a tiny bit of white. All mixed on the canvas to see what happened. I added some stripes using the same colours then added gold for highlight and some ribbon for contrast.
I called it ‘Variations’
As you can see, I failed miserably in my attempt to get better photographs but I have called for help and my friend is going to help when she comes back from holiday next week. I have followed all the tips I have read but my camera is just not up to the job. Dropped hints for my birthday yesterday but that is a while away yet. Will also try to get some proper lessons soon to improve things. There is just so much you need to learn to blog and produce a website. It is a great learning curve but very steep.
I promised I would share the work of another ‘Twitter Friend’ today and that is Debbie Lamey-MacDonald. A very talented artist who has a lovely softness to her work and a great attention to detail. Debbie is a lovely person who gives her support and friendship generously.
This is my favourite as it reminds me of visits to see my gran and grandad and of summers staying with them. My gran had a laugh like the cartoon dog ‘Mutley’ and she laughed so much at everything.

Thank you Debbie.
