My local card shop Best Wishes on Elm Road has a great selection of cards including…mine! I went in yesterday to take a photo and the lady told me they were selling well so thank you people of Leigh!

How excited am I?! I just received samples of my card range due out this month, published by The Art Group…they look great! The foiling on them looks really good but unfortunately it hasn’t come out very well in the picture – I’ll get a better photo soon…maybe one which isn’t taken on my embarrassingly messy desk at work…

I’ve been a busy bee this week. I’ve done these two new abstracts, I am trying to develop 6 square artworks for a card range, to be published by The Art Group, that work together but have different enough compositions. My favourite way to work is with the portrait orientation so I’ve enjoyed the challenge:

I’ve been experimenting with some Xmas imagery for potential cards. This is what I’ve done so far but I’m  not sure if its ‘Christmassy’ enough, it’s been suggested I should change the background colour which I think will really help. I love the colours against the blue but it isn’t the most obvious colour for Xmas, I think I was aiming for it look like snowflakes falling from the sky. I think with a different background colour and some of the blue used as accents within the snowflakes it could be more successful. Watch this space…

At last! I have finally joined the wonderful world of Etsy. Having been saying to myself I will do it for longer than I care to remember I now have my own shop. I am still yet to sell anything but it’s not dampening my enthusiasm! Check out the items in my store below:

I have got a couple of prints of of my paintings in there, I hope to add some more soon:

I’ve also done a few original paper cut outs, a couple on the similar pattern theme but also one that features something I overheard somebody say on a train years ago. They were taken aback when they bumped into somebody they knew. The person asked if they had seen them out the other day and he stuttered ‘Maybe…it could have been me. I am one of many few’. It  has stuck with me ever since!

This is my latest abstract:

I wanted to do a pair for a previous image and I think they work well together:

I’ve been saying this for ages but I am intending to set up an Etsy shop selling my prints. I’m also thinking of having the following design printed on some cotton shoppers. What do you think?

I did this collage a while ago and out of all of the pieces I have done it seems to be the most popular. People keep commenting on the colours which I suppose are quite nice but it’s not my favourite composition. Anyway I have just bought some more linen and hope to do a better one soon so watch this space…
