A little picture…

It was just a picture that a friend asked me to paint. It was a couple of days spent with my grand daughter teaching her how to use acrylic paints and pastels. Each of those moments was such a special time that I rekindled my love of painting and the silly thing is, I was always able to be reasonably good at art but didn’t start really painting until I was expecting my youngest daughter who is nearly twenty. I used art as a distraction when we moved away from my little secure life in Hastings to live in the middle of nowhere, deep in the West Sussex countryside.  A place as it happened, that ended up being a dream come true and such a huge inspiration to the creative me. As each picture got better and better as I worked on more subjects and with different mediums

A quiet moment

A quiet moment

 I got more and more in awe of the gift I have. Still today I look at the end result and it moves me to think that I was able to do that. Someone from the other side is guiding me I am sure. I never take my ability for granted and I appreciate the work, be it picture, drawing or sketch, and feel so excited and moved when I stand back and see what the results are. My blog today is going to be less of my waffle, instead I want to share some of my artwork. I recommend everyone to have a go at something that interests them, it is so satisfying and rewarding. I still don’t believe it is me painting these things so I thank my spirit guides that are there working through me. Enjoy!
