The new year has started, I celebrated a birthday and I've been painting.
I began this one a year ago, then put it aside.
I went back into it the other day and I'm pretty happy with it.
Above is the initial sketch. Hope you can tell it's a class on a field trip to the modern museum.
It's very cold this week, so I painted some bright springy flowers :)
below, with a muted grey background.
Speaking of flowers,
I just added three wristlets, a pencil case and a coin purse to my etsy shop - Blip Blop Shop
I sold two and gave one as a gift over the holidays.
My friend, Margot Kingon sewed these for me and I think they're real sweet.
Take a look at my shop to see details.
While I was home for the holidays, I came across this vintage Cricket Magazine
from 1976. It's pretty great! The cover art is by Erik Blegvad
I don't think I ever entered a contest, but it's fun to read over this one.
I was surprised to find a poem by Sylvia Plath.
Sylvia wrote this series of poems for her own children
It was illustrated by Quentin Blake
The art here is by Emily McCully
I really like this Coming Attractions page and got a kick out of the
worm wishing a Merry Christmas to his tail and vice versa ;)
It's in good shape overall. I'll give it a read!
Ok, that's all for now.
Off to locate more blankets!
Enjoy the rest of your week.
