Note to Self!

I often make the mistake of feeling that the niggle inside me needs to be filled with a good dose of art~so off I go to the computer to have a nose at others' works of art. But I have come to realise that it is not necessarily that which is needed, neither is it the idea that I need to but the next art tool or book on the market. What I really need to do at those times, is get on and make my own art!!

I forget so often that I just need to make an outlet for all the creativity inside me that I so easily forget about in the daily routine of life and three kids (as lush as they may be, of course!!). I just need to get on with it, because 9 times out of 10 it's just what the doctor ordered and I feel so much better for it!

So, note to self~ remind myself to look at my own blog entry of 16th december and just get on and get creative!!!

'Junior' Commission

A friend asked me to do a name canvas recently for her nephew, as a Christmas present. I have not done one before but it was good to stretch the old brain and think of how to incorporate the little lad's name on a canvas painting.

I enjoyed creating something new and like the finished piece.

Have a great week.
