The house is strangely quiet( apart from the wind that is constantly buffeting the house)......Fiona has gone to visit Ariel in university so it just me, Beauty and the bunny and the piggies.I have even had a chance to get onto the computer without a fight! However, it will not last long as I have to pick Ariel and Fiona up on Friday evening.
Oh well!
Today I have been concentrating on my sketch book for my art exam, here are some 'exciting ' pages from the sketch book called




the theme of my piece of work is INTERIORS.
I am going to do a painting of my kitchen but I am exploring other forms of interiors as well as interiors of buildings, hence the inside of my bag!
All I can say is WHAT A BORING BAG & CONTENTS, now what does that say about me?
I have been told you can tell a lot about somebody by looking at the contents of their bag.
All I can think it says is that my bag does not follow the usual stereotype that men have of women's know, everything but the kitchen sink!


Another page from my book, I'm afraid it did not photograph well.
It is acrylics on canvas.


This is also in my sketch book, a cross that I made out of driftwood.

Beauty is wearing me out at the moment, she seems to be going through a very frustrated stage. Nothing seems to keep her happy , she is constantly getting angry when she doesn't understand something on the computer,when she can't turn the tap on and flood the kitchen floor and tonight she tried to go upstairs to Fiona's room as she has been there a few times with Fiona and it was very difficult to bring her downstairs. I tried and tried but found it impossible to move her she is so big but the only reason that I got her to move was the fact she cooperated, if she hadn't cooperated I would never have managed it.
I foresee stormy times ahead!

Sounds like Beauty is having a developmental growth spurt... though I'm not sure if that's any help! Ben is exactly the same - gets very frustrated over things and then a week or so later he seems to have sussed out something new.

Did you paint the flowers? They are beautiful.

Your purse is very, very clean too. The contents of my purse is receipts, receipts, wallet, keys, lint and receipts.

Unknown said...

Oh, and of course, I loved the cross. You are obviously a crafty woman. My daughter is. I am craft-challenged. lol




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
