Back To Normal

Things are back to normal here after the excitement of the little tea party. Thank you all for your sweet comments. I really do appreciate anyone taking the time to leave one. :)  My daughter did enjoy participating and made a perfect Alice.  She loves drama and stories and infact attends a drama group every Saturday.

I 've been enjoying the sun shining,  having all the windows open and the magical midsummers moon. Did you see it? Glowing, orange tinted,  Mars like, as it rose up over the hill. I did try to capture it on camera, but wasn't very sucessful. Just have to capture with paint instead.
So, here is my latest work to share with you. It's titled 'The Dreaming Company' and is acrylic paint on canvas and roughly A3 size.

The photographs are not that brilliant, but it is too big for my scanner. When I go to town next I'll get an A3 scan done. The Company Of Dreamers you may have noticed includes some of the characters from 'The Moonlit Gathering' That's because it is the follow on painting. I'm planning on doing one more too.

A new painting sits upon the easel and many wooden creatures are waiting to be cut out and brought to life, to stock up the shop. That means it's time to get busy and bid you a sunshiney farewell til next time.
Have a wonderful week. x

  2. I love this painting! It feels like that in my forest here when I wander through the clearing in the evening.... enchanted, with sounds of creatures scurrying through the forest. But not horses or unicorns...! Lovely! Look forward to seeing the next one.

  7. Lovely mystical flavor to these paintings. At first glance I thought it was a unicorn in the first painting. I posted about unicorns on my blog today, and think you probably fancy unicorns too.

  11. An enchanting drawing! I love the atmosphere of quietness and peaceful harmony!The branches of the trees make an arch over the girl's figure and thus emphasize its central place in the composition. The colours are so... soft. And the stars and glow-worms really twinkle...

  15. This is an enchanting painting, I always love seeing your foxes and hares. For a moment I thought that the white horse was a unicorn until I realised that there is no horn on her head.
