I know I have been slack at posting, but here is a snippet of some of my recent time spent painting. Lots of animals.
A special little dog called Hubble from little dog laughed, I had been meaning to paint him for a while after his mum kindly said I could use his photo. He is my favourite dog here on WordPress, take a look at the blog through my link, dogs with character, and of course some great photography effects.

A pair of gorgeous guinea pigs, belonging to a patient at my place of work, they spent many days in her room keeping her company, and are such little chatter boxes.
‘Perfect pair’ watercolour and pen Guinea pigs 10×7″ 140 lb coldpress. These two cuties belong to a patient at work, they visit daily, and I could not resist painting the pair, the painting is now on her room wall
Another painting for a patient, ‘Minnie’ is an amazon yellow headed parrot, I was asked if I could include her feathers into the painting so used them to create a frame by sticking them on the mount.
‘In thought’ memory of ‘ minnie’ parrot watercolour, 30×40 cm framed and mounted. Mount is covered in feathers from the parrot which were shed during his life time. This is a request from a patient at work, a memory of a special friend sadly missed

Two horses from the fortune centre of riding therapy, they offers an amazing opportunity for teenagers/young adults with special educational needs to participate in a course based around learning through horses the course runs upto a maximum of three years, sadly Ella was put to sleep recently, but good memories remain in the hearts of many.

Two lovely lurches ‘smoker’ and cobweb’ that belong to my daughters boyfriends’ family, I love painting lurches, they are just not easy to get a photograph of, as soon as the camera comes out they go shy! I was lucky on this occasion.

Lastly I was asked by a friend if I could change a picture she had of a cow, it had so much red on it, the poor cow looked like it was in the slaughter house, see what you think??? Here are the before and after photos, I used oil paint to make this cute cow more appealing to her very young daughter,
‘Before’ a friend asked if I could change this cow print for her daughter, it really looks like the cow is in the slaughter house! I took up the challenge and decided to use oil for the make over
‘After’ changing a print for a friend, oil over canvas
Thats all folks, I hope to pop back soon
