I've just put the finishing touches on two new mixed media flirts.
There's Marguerite - painted in gouache, ink and pencil - a sexy little blue-haired girl who's flicking her locks around in an oh-so flirty way.
And then there's Pip and Stanley (her pet octopus), a sweet little pink haired ocean-going lass. I posted a few in progress images of this piece here earlier. She's changed quite significantly.
Jeez I'm having fun with this at the moment.
I've been a little down lately because I'm seem to be standing in the shadows of a host of brilliant, successful people. A couple of friends have - very deservedly! - had their work published in Curvy and my gorgeous baby brother was one of the lead speakers at Semi-Permanent this year. While I'm incredibly excited for them all, it's also difficult not to feel a little left behind.
But a few brush strokes in and I tend to forget all that! And as my friend Dave keeps telling me - I have to stop trying to run before I can walk.
So I'm walking back to my painting desk right now!
