HELLO BEAUTIES! LET’S PUT SHAPES, COLOURS AND ACHIEVE A WONDERFUL COMPOSITION LIKE THIS.
My boyfriend, Joel, and I are very competitive and he decided to cook me a surprise 3 course meal as he knows food is the way to my heart! Somewhat nervous, he sculpted a menu including all of favourite ingredients, including prawns. This is all well and good, but now I have a target to beat (I know, I can’t just be happy with what I have…).
I love to have a starter when eating out, but hate when I’m so full from the starter than I just cannot stomach a main course (I say “I” as if this is a problem for me, it’s not, but I sympathise with others, ha). These prawns are a great idea for a light and fresh starter or even a light lunch!
Ingredients (Serves 2)
- 150g Cooked King Prawns (if using frozen pre-cooked, defrost thoroughly!)
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp Honey

👦THE LITTLE OBSERVER. ONLY A FEW LINES ARE ENOUGH IF YOU PREVIEWED THE EXPRESSION IN YOUR MIND BEFORE YOU SKETCH.
More pictures of Clara, tricky to sketch her as she usually grabs my pencil and paper to do her own drawing “Mamma Mine” but I get a few seconds while she is distracted or looking out of the window. I’m getting quicker at sketching anyway and she hadn’t discovered drawing on the walls ……yet.

💪 HI SISTERS, DON’T FORGET OUR PRIDE!
Pics and Posts
Did you see the Google Doodle on International Women’s Day? The doodle featured a collection of inspiring quotes by women beautifully illustrated by [other] women. It’s a pretty impressive collection, and I want the prints!
Fortunately, my bestie–from now on referred to as “the prophet”–anticipated this and sent me a beautiful collection of 12 woman-centered postcards. I finally took time to scan them, so I decided to share them on the blog in three installments.

I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own. And I am not free as long as one person of Color remains chained. Nor is anyone of you. –Audre Lorde, “The Uses of Anger,” National Women’s Studies Association Conference, 1981

Many of us recall when #45 described his opponent, Hillary Clinton, as a nasty woman. He intended it…

📋 HELLO BEAUTIES, ON A WATERCOLOR WORK, OR AN AQUATINT, THE WATER FLOWS SO NATURALLY WHILE IT WONDERFULLY TARNISHES THE PAPER.
So now I’m getting a bit obsessed with Snipe, a funny little bird with impossibly skinny legs and beak, for wading and probing at the water’s edge, beautifully designed for its environment. In these drawings I focused on the silhouette to try and establish the overall shape of the bird, using my own home-made walnut ink. Thinking ahead, I can see one, or both, of these being cut into a block of lino or vinyl for printing – maybe a reduction print?
I was down at Swansea Museum, working with a group of artists from Swansea Print Workshop and scientists from the FIRE Laboratory. It was so interesting getting that interaction and input, finding out about the birds habits and habitats fleshed out their personalities and helped with developing an artistic interpretation of the little beasties.

👓 ❤WELL DEARS! ART ALWAYS NEEDS GOOD BEHOLDERS.
I went to visit the Acropolis at the end of March for the first time. Fascinating to be there with a fantastic view over the city. However, the whole hill and most paths around it consist of quite slippery smooth rock and I was happy to be wearing trainers.
I was impressed and amused when I spotted the lady below in her pink heels, wobbling around in slow motion supported by a friend, both trying not to lose grip.
On my way down the hill I spotted her again when she photographed street art. I think it took her forever to make her way down as this was less than 5 minutes from the exit and I had been sitting in the sun for a good hour before I met her there.
I like to wear nice dresses but definitely comfortable shoes with them. Would you go sightseeing in heels?

📝 HI LOVELIES ! IN MY OPINION A HANDWRITTEN TEXT BESIDE A SKETCH, MAKES THIS MORE FRESH AND PERSONAL.
An idealised family portrait, Kahlil Gibran on marriage and half an idea for an illustration. As the other well known spiritual guru (My Dad) said the secret to a successful marriage is separate sheds. Same thing really just not as poetic. We don’t have sheds but art corner and guitar corner serve us well!
