Some new art to share today, yay!! So here is Miss Polly. She is my first painting on wood panel. I was going for a vintage doll sort of a look. I will write some more about her a bit later though, for now I just wanted to share. There are a couple of progress shots on my Facebook page if you are interested.
If there’s one thing you should know about me it is that I am extremely self critical and insanely protective of all that I do and I am a rather private person in real life. When it comes to my so called art I constantly battle with the “your stuff is really crap” voice that plays over and over in my head. Someone the other day told me this means that I truly do have the heart and mind of an artist but to me I just think “no, maybe it’s just because my stuff really is crap”. So anyway [tell me more, tell me more]
So I’ve been pretty busy this past week. I’ve not had much time to get my crafty on sadly (two little kidlets can do that to you sometimes) but I did manage to get this little artwork finished. I’ll do a “little bit about” post about her a little later on with progress shots. For now I just wanted to share her. Prints will be available in my Etsy and Madeit stores very soon. I hope you like her.
Wow!!! This morning I jumped on Facebook for a quick look only to find a link to madeit’s front page which had a Rainbow theme. I clicked on it thinking to myself how cool it would be if my “Rainbow Girl” was in there. I laughed at myself then for being so ridiculous. I only opened my store 2 days ago. As if!!! And suddenly there she was!! Staring back at me in amongst all the beautifully colourful featured items was my little “Rainbow Girl”. How AWESOME!!!!! (yes I know I tend to use that word a lot) I’ve had [tell me more, tell me more]

So I haven’t been able to do much painting this past week for various reasons (a teething, clingy and now sick child being the main one) but today I managed to sneak out to gather some supplies from the art store which was heaven. I swear I could lose myself in there for days. Anyway I’ve been eyeing off some stuff to carve my own stamps for a while so I grabbed some lino carving tools and a sheet of soft rubber to carve up. That will be interesting and a bit of fun. I also picked up some new [tell me more, tell me more]
