Illustration Friday and Micki's Art Swap

First of all let me show you my illustration for this week.
'Twirl' for Illustration Friday.


Look what arrived in my letterbox this morning. My parcel from Micki has arrived!

Micki Wilde from the Secret Hermit has been running an art swap this month
and today her painting arrived at my house!
Do you remember last week I told you about the one I was working on to send to her?

I hope she likes it.
I love hers!

Around the edge of the painting it says,
'She had a deep desire to unleash her imagination for the all the world to see.'

Thankyou Micki, I am now the happy owner of 2 of your lovely paintings! :)) The one on the left I bought myself for a treat a few weeks ago. It's called
'Fly Free'.

Two lovely ladies to watch me as I paint! :)
