Looking for the extending part

The Eureka murals will at last be viewed this next weekend. Its been a long wait for them to be viewed.. I was asked in mid January to do them, painted the working paintings in January, then had to wait til April until I had recovered from my operation to be even able to start […]

Back in my favourite place

Since I’ve been healing from my operation back in February….there is one thing that I have missed more than any other…and that’s ……swimming…. But last week and over the weekend I’ve caught up on that big time!! Sunshine, and my favourite pool….. Bliss……………………………

Painting with nature

The weather has turned cold and grey again…not ideal for summer at all.. So while I am waiting for the summer to return I will make the most of being artistic… in the garden. When we moved to our house in Kent two years ago there were lots of problems in the house and garden […]

Always a joy to do these

I was asked this week to do a Fantasy Fanny painting (Queynte). I’m always happy to do them and love the effect of them. This one will be the 24th one, so will be called "Queynte 24" when it is complete. Its to be on canvas but like the others will be in acrylics since […]

Doubling up is worth the effort

The government has changed the rules regarding the current restrictions meaning that Eureka could open on 21st June. That means my two murals there will have to wait a bit longer to be viewed by the members. But in view of helping the owners as much as we could my husband and I volunteered last […]

A new twist on an old favourite

I’ve just had a long chat with a perspective client who is interested in me painting him. He thinks I am the ideal person to do the piece of artwork he is thinking about. He’s had a good look at my website and really likes my art. Particularly the erotic stuff. And more specifically the […]

Making an ecstatic Star

Making an ecstatic Star

Whilst I was doing the murals at Eureka in Kent, one of the members of staff there, Bob, asked me if I would paint him from one of his photos, I replied with a smile that I would be delighted to, once I’d finished the murals! That was a week or so ago since I […]

A first!

After just over a week of working long hours I have completed the first mural for Eureka. Its 8 feet x 5 feet and took just over a day to grid the wall and draw out the images onto the wall. And just because it looked ok close up on the wall didn’t mean that […]

Already……

I’m getting on well with the first mural, and was delighted to get this reaction from someone at the Club who saw it when it was almost half finished …. She said "WOW!!!!" ………and then she said to me "You would be selfish if you DIDN’T show this to the world!" She sent me a […]

It starts just how I hoped it would

I started work on the first mural this week… I usually use a grid for transferring my working drawings to a larger canvas/board/paper for a painting, so I am used to that procedure but not usually to those proportions! The mathematics involved are what I’m used to doing, but I always double check as I […]

At last.. the time has come

At last…the time has come for me to start the murals. The owners of Eureka love my designs that I’ve been working hard on for the last couple of weeks, and I’ve got the go ahead to start painting them! I’ve been waiting for this day since January when I was asked to do them! […]

All of this is the basis of all of that

I’m still working on the working drawings/paintings for the biggest of the two murals I am doing for Eureka. Its important that I do all this planning now, as its this process that will be the thinking behind the paintings themselves. If the images work on the small working paintings, they will work for the […]

Squared is lots of feet

I’m getting on really well with the working drawings for the murals at Eureka, including the various aspects that the clients have asked for, but delighted that they have given me a lot of creative independence as to where some of the things are placed within the images. So the basic ideas are there, the […]
