Hello all, another Handmade Monday has come around and what a busy time it's been.
I have been doing lots of prep this week for a couple of 'one woman shows' that have been organised for me......ooer, that sounds a bit grand don't you think?
The first one is to be held over the Easter Period in a lovely little Tea Room at Brandon Country Park.
I made the fatal mistake of thinking I had lots of time to get my paintings done and organised but as usual have left everything to the last minute.
I 'sort' of know what I want to do, so that's 'sort' of good, I've done a few sketches, so that's good,
|My bicycle sketches|
I've transferred some of the sketches onto my canvases, I consider that very good.
|Bicycle sketches on 3 canvases|
Now all I need to do is get the paintings done and hopefully show them to you in a future post. I decided to go with a bicycle theme, mainly because the park has lots of cycle paths and attracts lots of cyclists. It's a lovely peaceful place to go for a rides or walks and to enjoy nature.
I don't mind the walking bit but I don't 'do' cycles, painting them is one thing, riding them is quite another, they don't like me, really, they don't, as soon as I go near one of these contraptions they conspire against me, go all wibbly wobbly and to throw me to the ground.
