My bother in law commissioned these paintings for my sister as Christmas presents. I hope she likes them. I loved painting them and the colours came out just as I imagined they would. They are also my last paintings of the year. Tomorrow this time I will be sitting on the beach :)
See you in 2009!

Boots painting

I realy enjoyed this week's Different Strokes Challenge. I love painting shoes, so I was quite impressed to find a photo of workboots as the theme for the week.
Sadly this is my last challenge painting for the year as we are going on holiday. I had a great time the past few months doing different paintings every week and being challenged with themes I would not normally consider.
Looking forward to new challenges in 2009!

Orchid Painting

On Sunday we had over all the family for lunch before everyone leaves for holiday. I decided to give everyone a painting for Christmas but that creates a lot of empty walls to fill. I painted this one to fill one of those empty spaces :)

Some pictures from our recent exhibition

The garden looked magical with all the fairy lights and paper lanterns.

We even had a flute player to provide lovely background music. We were worried about the weather as is was raining almost every day before the exhibition, but on the day the weather was perfect.

Some paintings

Here I am with Hettie (on the right) my fellow organizer, friend and great artist. She was so kind to open up her stunning house for the exhibition.
We had a wonderfull time and are already planning events for the new year.
Can't wait!
