It was my birthday recently and I was lucky enough to recieve not one but two new sets of paints. They look pristine and very professional – two things that I am not! I feel very spoilt by my boys to have been given such lovely gifts. All I have to do now is get over my fear of ruining their perfection by using them!!
This is one of my favourite paintings that I’ve done during my very short life span as some kind of artist. It’s by no means perfect – doesn’t that lend paintings a certain kind of charm?!
I love the depth of colour that is achieved by adding each layer of petals and the ‘happy accidents’ that gave the background to this painting, a beautiful mix of colours. I do feel like a bit of a fraud though as these stunning colours are not of my doing at all!
It’s been a frustrating day really, time I had hoped to have this morning to start a painting, didn’t materialise at all. I hope to have some time tomorrow. Instead of putting something new on here, I thought I would add some more cake photos. I made and decorated these cakes over the past few years and I can remember the amazed look on each of the faces of those in receipt of them.
