Happy Christmas everyone! Hope you are all enjoying the festivities. :-) Weather awful for this time of year - rain, rain and more rain with wind thrown in for extra measure! However I'm sure it didn't spoil your Christmas. Although with the flooding in the south and west it wasn't a very good one for those affected and I see on the news that the UK is having some of the worst flooding ever. :-( We had a slight respite this morning for an hour or so after a heavy frost last night but it's back to the norm again and more rain on the way.
I want to get back in to my art soon but was playing with textures yesterday and came up with this piece. Want to re-appraise what I have been doing over the last while and see where I am going with my art. Just a matter of getting Christmas over with and then getting back into the studio properly.
Wishing you all a very happy New Year 2-16 and thank you all for staying with me up  to now. :-)

Hi everyone!

Well now - what's been happening? :-)
I have three of my paintings in the Artists rest exhibition at Balrothery Heritage Centre this weekend. The opening on Friday night was very well attended and the venue is so lovely as it is an old church, beautiful place. It was such a stormy night that I didn't think many would turn up for the event but so many made the effort to come and it made the night.  Great art there - 107 paintings in all by 47 artists. They are also planning a Photography exhibition and a 'recyclables' art exhibition too which will be interesting. :-)
I am still exploring textures but also want to do other abstract water media work and have a few different things that I want to work on. I also got some beautiful new alcahol inks and am having fun with them. I will show you what I did so far.
With Christmas coming in fast and I have guests staying with me at the moment though, it will probably be after Christmas before I get into it fully. Although I do intend to do quite  bit over the holiday period.
I want to wish you all a very happy Christmas and great New Year and thank you for your support during the year. :-)
