My artwork

Someone commented to me that they thought I must be artistic.  Admittedly art was one of my best subjects at school, and I have dabbled with paper and paint since.  It must run in the family.  My nephew paints and has had several  exhibitions, my daughter is also very artistic, she amazed me with her sketches and the ability to"think out of the box" and produce something different.

After reading the comment it made think, so I got my sketch book and art work and looked through my pictures. I thought I would bravely share with you some of my work (the better pieces) that I have done over the years, some recently, and some along time ago I hope you like, BEWARE they are very amateurish.

Im pleased with  this one  especially the glass. Though I think the neck  of the bottle isnt quite straight, and leaning to the left slightly.
  Somehow this bottle never got filled with pennies

These I did years ago when I went to an art class.  The tutor liked the ducks, if I remember rightly we had to paint clear reflections, just copying pictures from art magazines.   My Christmas picture on the right, the colours are muddy and not clear enough,  something I struggle with when using water colours, I believe the art is not to play with them too much.As with most hobbies and skills we have, the more we practice the better we become, and I prefer to sew

  1. Wow!!! I love our artwork. You definitely have a gift for it. I especially love the deck chair. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I'm glad you shared these pictures Louise. They are all lovely - but yes, sometimes we have to make decisions about how much time we have to devote to activities - like you, I have made the decision sewing is my priority craft. It's a good use of money as well - pursuing art is not cheap :) (neither is sewing, but at least you have something to wear at the end of it :))

  3. Very nice - love your pictures. You are very arty and talented. I can't even draw a straight line. No skills whatsoever.


thank you so much for commenting, After all its whats blogging all about. Though I may not answerr all your comments I do appreciate and enjoy reading them all.
