Folk Art cupboard

Recently I have been going right back to where I started, with my folk art painting of furniture.
Here's a cupboard I made recently, which found a new home rather quickly.
More folk art painting on the way !

Log cabins...

My better half makes wonderful buildings out of wood, and here's his latest creation, a two storey log cabin, with a bathroom.
It looks dainty in my photos, but the doors are very large, and its a bigger than it looks, it's set in a woodland backdrop, most fitting for the area.
Hes currently having a website built, so you can see the structures he makes from wood.
Even his outside woodpile, stash shed is eyecatching. You can see him measuring up, in front of it :)
Have a lovely weekend folks

Friends and things...

I have the most lovely friends and it's always a pleasure to visit them in their homes, even though I have to paint a picture for my supper sometimes lol.
Here you can see a self portrait, my friend Keryls very stylish, Scandinavian, retro kitchen, ( she made me paint ! )
Then there's Sharon's folk art kitchen, with her bedlington terrier Badger, testing the rug..... :)
And finally a lovely photo of Bazaar Vintages, gorgeous floral display..... Julie is in Narberth, go and look !
What are you and your friends up to ?? :)

Walk the walk...

On these cold days, where chocolate and comfort come into play. It's important to get out and bare it, even though my tiniest companion would rather not :)


I have lovely friends who bring me soup......


and theres some super exhibitions to see, this one on at the Aberystwyth  Arts centre, free to enter and features the work of lots of illustrators, some sculptural like these pieces.

To stimulate and inspire......


Then strolling through the wildlife centre in cardigan, yes it is freezing !!!


a beautiful eco , glass building, at the centre.....


and one of the giant badgers, sculpted in willow, that you can stand inside...


lots of hydes to view birds and otter from, with fantastic images, like paintings...


love this one, wanted to move in, but will come back with pen and pencil, soon !!


every window has gorgeous scenery...


then walking home with some winter sun....

Busy times...quiet times....

Although this is a very quiet time of year for artists and buyers, it's a good time to take stock and create anew.
Time to sit in our studios and plan what may come for the year ahead.
Time to sketch, paint and create.
Music helps all that.
So watch this space for much new work and ideas, let's enjoy this quiet time, rather than stress.
