Cliff Top Treehouse

Yesterday saw the close of a hectic week. Beginning with several workshops through several city libraries for Children's Book Week (teaching over 500 children in total) and finishing with the Balingup Medieval Carnival.

The carnival was a success again this year - apart from the rain on Sunday. During the event I managed to finalisethe  'Cliff Top Treehouse' painting. Although the colour combination is different to my original idea the overall result is happily harmonious.

Greeting cards and archival prints are available at Creations in a Teapot

Medieval Mouse Artist - pencil sketch

There's a great sense of freedom in stretching the artistic wings of creativity and create a jumble of messy lines that eventually come together as a picture.

In this sketch I had know idea what I wanted..... But on establishing the painting mouse the rest of the picture seemed to grow around it!

There's something about adding unnecessary detail without reason. A sense of playing 'god' in your own little world!

'Medieval Masterpieces' Poster

Had fun completing this poster for the Balingup Medieval Carnival.

I'm performing 'Medieval Masterpieces' as a street theatre gig where I offer free portraits (with a twist!).

My favourite character is the pervy king.....! :)
