exhibition progress...

Just a little sneaky peak at some of the paintings I have been doing for the upcoming exhibition

These little ones are about 15 x 22cm and look much better framed and finished!
Can't show you the finished shots - because that will defy the purpose of coming along to the opening night ;-)




Do pardon the shotty photos - it is too wet to take them outside for a proper snap shot! Oh bother!

    I'm in love with your owl one.

    How do you come up with so much inspiration and put it to paper over and over again? It never ceases to amaze me.

    Also... How on earth do you keep a steady hand? When I try to outline it's all shakety-shake... Maybe I should give up caffiene =P
