SO TRUE DEARS, I GREAT ARTIST HAS ENOUGH WITH A FEW PAINTBRUSH STROKES TO DEPICT SOMETHING SO WONDERFUL LIKE THESE MUSHROOM.
It is almost a year since I posted anything. I haven’t fallen off the planet but been distracted and only doing life drawing… But one of the ‘distractions’ has come round again. I organise a ‘Secret Art Sale’ in my home town for our local hospital charity and 2020 will be its 3rd year. I started as my late husband spent a few weeks on and off in there and they were good to us. A new Cancer Care centre was to be built and paid for by fund raising and I wanted to do something to help. I dislike sponsored events so took the idea from the RCA Secret Postcard and held our own Secret Art Sale. It’s a win/win/win situation: artists exhibit their work, art lovers buy original art at a good price, and the charity gets the money! So far the Secret Art Sale has raised just…

🌳 👁️ 👁️ ❓WELL LOVELIES, WHEN NOBODY KNOWS, WE CAN BEHOLDING LANDSCAPE. AFTER DOUBTS WE WILL ALWAYS LEARN SOMETHING.
I have a confession to make. I have been totally unfocused on my own work lately. I am blaming a bunch of exterior factors and demands but I am also to blame because I forgot something fundamental in the last few weeks, and that is to take some time for myself and take care of my mind.
As Dr Michael Rich, Harvard physician, puts it, “Downtime is to the brain what sleep is to the body”, so honour your limits and allow your brain to truly relax. When you’re fresh, focus, when you’re spent, refresh.

☁️ WELL HONEYS, SKETCH YOUR GENUINE WORK. THE SKIES ARE COMPLETELY PLAYABLE AND WRITABLE. GRACIAS A LA INSPIRADA ARTISTA: OLGA.
🏞️ HI DEARS, AS YOU CAN CHECK, OIL PASTELS CAN BE A WONDERFUL STUFF ON THE HANDS OF AN INSPIRED SKETCHER.
Courses in life seldom run straight. Like a river or creek they bend against time. I work steadily toward my “big painting” project and yet it seems to be standing still at present. In between times I am also beginning to draw landscapes outdoors in oil pastel. I made this drawing quickly.
Might be going out again today. These drawings — at present — aren’t ones that I set out to make — not yet — not so far. They are instead things that I do while I’m waiting around for someone else. So sometimes when I am on someone else’s schedule, I still draw. I am finding more and more that bits of time gathered here and there are useful for seeing. I probably never would have made this drawing had I not found myself momentarily at loose ends.
And you never know where these things lead.
🍎 HI DEARS ! MAYBE THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST SYMBOLIC FOODS.
🥧 🍫 🍰 WELL SISTERS, WE’VE ALREADY GOT OUR DESSERT.
This poem was inspired from this week’s FBTF #24 Breakaway. The challenge to craft some piece of art involving the names of popular candy. Join us.
You arms, my Lucky Charms,
Everlasting Gobstopper eyes,
colorful layered surprises,
Twinkie of a winkie,
sweet all-day Snickers
that tingle my knickers.
