A Belated Happy New Year

Oh dear, one very neglected blog - sorry.  What can I say? again I have been lost in the world of pen and paint, I have a new book (no surprise there) on learning to draw fairies, so the above is not strictly my own work, but learning from a book.  I have an awful lot to learn about using marker pens, but this will improve with the new faces course with Andrea Gomoll, that is due to start in a couple of weeks.
Also, the simply wonderful Lifebook 2014 started on the first of the month, so that saw me totally disappear into enjoying everything about it, above is one of my pages from that.  I totally adore this course.. I also now help to run the UK facebook group for Lifebook so that keeps me busy, and support some less confident members on the ning site.  I remember all too well what it was like to be in a group and nobody take any notice of your art works, it hurt - lots!

I did manage to re-open my Etsy shop yesterday with a HUGE sale, I would really love to see all those bags I made in new homes, just to clear out for a new start and to help fund my intentions, I still havent got around to my new projects for the shop, but would love to put up some prints for sale in the future, I also have a friend who wants to sell her prints via my shop too - but we both need some more funds yet, as good prints do not come cheap to produce, nor do good art supplies.

Happy New Year to anyone still reading, I am now off back to the paint and paper - less PC time and more painting needed.
