Another completed journal

I've been so busy that I've only just managed to complete a commissioned journal. Now the exhibition panic is over I hope to be able to get back to my orders. Here's a peak at some of the pages.

Thanks again for visiting and for your kind comments.

You can still join me at the 21 Secrets on-line workshop. Everyone is having a great time and producing some brilliant work. Check it out HERE.

What a week

These past eight days have been a whirlwind. Judy Wise came to town and boy did we celebrate. I've been blogging with Judy for over six years and it was so good to meet her at last. Along with Jacky we took her to see as many things as time allowed, as well as having art play days. Judy also taught a two day Cold Wax workshop at my place, that was fantastic. I've always wanted to give encaustics a go but now I've discovered the ease of cold wax, encaustics is on the back burner.

Judy arrived on the Wednesday then joined us for sketching in the afternoon.

the next day I met Jacky and Judy for lunch then we went to Lillico gallery to see our exhibition.

Saturday and Sunday Judy held a cold wax workshop at my house.

we then had a day painting in the round, including my 3 year old grandson.

the finished piece.

The rest of the time Jacky and I showed her as much as we could in the time we had, we'll miss her terribly, she's one special lady.

Thanks to everyone for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments. I will have my latest journal to show you in the next post.
