Wild Sisters & New WIP

I’m working on this monochromatic piece which I’m tentatively calling ’50 shades of pink’ ;). Kidding. I started the second book of the ’50 shades of grey‘ trilogy but I was so bored, I haven’t looked at it since I started ‘A Discovery of Witches’ (Deborah Harkness) while I was in Spain. Granted, I’ve not Read More

Kindness Matters – for sale

This girl ‘came to me’ when I really needed some kindness. Sometimes when I’m blue, I start drawing and it’s like ‘guardian angels’ slide into the pencil and appear on the page, as if to send a message of kindness. :)  This painting has many layers and a warm summery colour scheme. Lots of lovely Read More

The Zen master Hakuin was praised by his neighbors as one living a pure life. A beautiful Japanese girl whose parents owned a food store lived near him. Suddenly, without Read More
