Art Swap!

Fancy receiving lots of fabulous artwork in return for making only one piece? Then let me know if you want to join in and I'll send you the details. There are some great artists taking part; it would be a shame to miss out!

This is the tin that I made and is now winging it's way to Jill in New York!

Anthropologie Hits The UK

After finally getting around to reading last weeks Sunday Times, the Style magazine revealed that Anthropologie are opening a shop in England. Hurrah!

However, it is in London, which to us Middle Englanders may as well be New York as we rarely travel further south than Northampton!

But exceptions may have to be made and these are a few of the reasons why............




Oh yeah baby!...

More, more!...

Umm, sorry folks, got a little carried away there! It's a sad day when I am turned on by the sight of covetable homewares!

Art Challenge

I've been asked by Alicia to take part in an Art Challenge, where we have to make one thing and post it to the person at the top of the list. We then have to invite 6 more people to do the same, but putting our own name at the top. (sounds confusing, but it's not!)

Hopefully, if everyone does it, we should all receive about 36 pieces of original artwork. How cool is that?

Here's my contribution: (actually I think it needs a little something inside too)

Sea Dreaming (inside)

Sea Dreaming (outside)

There are still a couple of places spare if anyone would like to join in, although you have to be able to get your piece off in the post within a week.

Barton Hall Artists... continued

Carolyn Bushell

Today I'm continuing my featured artists with the very talented and gorgeously funky Carolyn Bushell.

Carolyn is an artist who draws and paints musicians, past and present. She captures incredible movement and expression in her work that make the paintings so realistic.
