New Encaustic Art

Dear readers is has been a while since my last blog, so much to do, so little time to spend blogging about it.

I have been spending a lot of time on Folksy,promoting my shop fb and tweeting, and although I am beginning to sell greeting cards, my photographs are still waiting to find new homes.

So I thought that I would try something new, and have just discovered Encaustic Art. If you haven't heard of this artistic medium, you aren't the only one. I didn't know anything about this creative craft until a month ago. It is painting with wax using a hot iron, and it is surprising the results that can be achieved. I can't draw a straight line even with a ruler, but this is so freehand,and almost surreal.

This 6x4" Encaustic Art image is available in my shop for ONLY £4.00 including postage, so if you want something that nobody else has, you know where to go.

There are many talented artist on Folksy so go check them out you will find original art, at prices you can afford.

I had a good Sunday I spent the afternoon with a couple of dog lovers, who wanted their beautiful dog Snowy photographed, it is so nice to spend time with like minded people and just chill.

So I hope that everyone has a great Bank Holiday and enjoys the sunshine.

Off to take Skeet out, and then get on with the gardening.

Don't you just love Spring!

So much to think about.

It will soon be Christmas, and I am sure that like me everyone is begining to wonder, what to try to do next.
If like me you have a number of online shops and web-sites, you will be trying to promote and get yourself noticed.

If you would like to take a look at any of my stores, just follow the links.

I have a couple of craft fairs coming up, but the one that I am really excited, nervous and having sleepless nights about is on the 4th Dec at Sherborne in Somerset.

If you know Sherborne you will know that it is a very old and quite wealthy town.

The fair is right opposite the beautiful Abbey, and I will find it quite hard not to abandon my stall in order to soak up the atmosphere and take loads of pictures.

I have a wedding to photograph in mid Oct, (the bride to be caught me in a moment of weakness, and persuded me and convinced me that I could do it). When I saw her yesterday I asked her if she was getting nervous yet and she said no (just me then).

So please send positive thoughts and luck, I will let you know how I get on and hopefully post some photos.

Blog to you all soon.

Had a bit of a tidy up

So we are already in September,which means we will soon be starting to think about Christmas, and having the family round. Which means having a good autumn clear out.
So I have had a bit of a tidy up of my web-site, and made the pricing a lot clearer, so when the drop down menu is used it's not quite so messy.
So why not have a look around, and see if you can get any ideas for presents, for yourself or your loved ones.
Remember a piece of wall art is not just for Christmas.
Have a great weekend.
Off out with Skeet now.

It was a Friday evening,the sun was shining and the sky was blue, and from the moment I saw her, I was head-over-heels in love.
Her name is Megan, and she is a magnificent and very statuesque Harrier Hawk.
I had been pestering her Falconeer Steve to let me take some photographs of her for months,but when if first met her, I was stunned by her beauty and grace.
Megan is 6 years old, and is the pround parent of a male Harrier Hawk.
I was told that she now needs to get down to her flying weight,for her to be able to hunt as nature intended, free,fast and deadly.
The Harrier Hawk,as most birds of prey,kill their food instantly with their powerful talons,and their exceptional eyesight allows them to see their food from great distances.
When you have a Harrier Hawk on your arm,you can feel the power and strenght of the talons of these magnifencet creatures even through the heavy falconeers glove.

Megan in accompaned on her hunting by two very friendly and playful Springer Spaniels.
These working dogs are a pair, and Steve is hoping that Jess and Tom will mate and have puppies,so guess where I will be, right there with my camera, taking puppy pictures.

Steve and his wife Mary, are the most contented and happy couple, and being in the company of these dogs and birds, I can understand why.

Long Time No Blog

So it is 3.07 by the sounds going on it must mean the football is about to start.
Have taken refuge with Skeet and the computer, he is crashed out by my feet,(which means I can hardly move) the heat is not good if you have a double fur coat like he has, bless him. We went for his walk in the country lanes at 6.30am,so that we didn't get too hot and bothered.
If you get the chance take a look at I am a featured seller, and Laurie has done a bio of me.
This is going to be a really quick blog because I have still got a lot to do a woman never really gets a day off.
Got to go, mentioned the word bath to Skeet and he's gone!
Come on boy,the buckets of water arn't really for you.
