Lovely antique cedar jewellery box

I have just finished painting this lovely antique cedar jewellery box ..the design  is so sweet with a bow front , cute little bun feet and has its original pink quilted lining ..I just couldn't resist buying it to paint pretty little bears across the top . The dimensions are 22cm(8 1/2" ) x 10cm (4") x 8cm (3") tall

Hello everyone !
Life has been extremely busy with lots of painting under way in my studio . I am so blessed to be able to paint several styles and mediums . One day I am painting lovely children's art for kids rooms like this painting above ' Wink, Sleepy and Bright Eyes' in acrylic and the next painting a commissioned artwork in oil like the lovely one recently finished of a neighbour's house ..never a dull moment but I am totally loving my life as an artist .. Tomorrow I will be selling paintings at the new Coastal Crafts Handmade Market at Centenary Hall Albion Park ..Look forward to seeing you there if you are in the area

Phew ! what a busy couple of weeks ..
It was lovely to spend a few days away with my painting group The Plein Air Girls ..The weather was perfect , the company splendid ...the food and wine to die for !  In spite of this we had a very productive time and I managed to get 2-3 plein air paintings done each day ...not masterpieces ..but just had good fun trying to capture the scenery before it changed . What a great little group we have become ! It is such a pleasure to spend time with these ladies several times a year . Look out for a featured article about us in (maybe) the next Australian Artist Magazine .
There is nothing like a painting trip with the 'Girls' to get me all enthused and inspired to paint so I was straight into this painting above on my return ..I am very pleased with the outcome of " Rockpool ' painted from a photo of my sweet little grandaughter playing at the beach a couple of months ago .

And ...back to the studio

Hi everyone ,
Well I have had a lovely holiday mainly just staying home in our new house this year . We had a great family Christmas, a quiet New Year's eve spent having drinks with the neighbours but best of all we welcomed our new baby grandson into the world . It was so nice to take the month off just to enjoy family and friends , recharge the batteries and think about projects for the year ahead ..
Also it is good to take a break because now my painting hand is itching to get those thoughts and ideas into action in the studio ..There are several exhibitions that I am working towards ... Over the break I managed to get some great photos of my granddaughter Ruby Rose now 19 months old playing at the beach that will make a great subject for paintings . I have just completed an interesting dog portrait that is a commissioned piece .
I am pleased to report that my small paintings have been selling well at The Kiama Gallery. I am excited to be involved with this lovely little gallery .

On the teddy bear front I have some new ideas too which will unfold in the months ahead ..I have just completed a teddy item pictured above that is listed on Ebay . I am very happy to discuss any special orders for any type of painting .
