Colourful Days

'Opposites Attract' acrylic on canvas

I'm so behind with everything I do believe I haven't shown you this finished painting yet! It's on canvas and I've used stencils for the textures. I like the randomness of the flower design, it was great fun to do!

So what next?


 This is the one I started before Easter but being so busy doing other things it's been sitting on the easel waiting for me. Today I will definitely be painting today because I spent the best part of yesterday designing my website. It's got some more tweaking to do but I'm happy with how it looks for now. Would you like to see?

I have a guestbook page there and I'd love it if you take a moment to sign it.x



My crocheted blanket is growing slowly. It's kept my knees warm on these cold evenings while I work on it. I hope I finish it before summer!

Hi Jess, I like your painting with the birds (but I do like all of your paintings, they are so bright and colourful). The website looks great too, good luck with that. xoxo

Good morning Jess! I am very much in LOVE with your work! I see you also follow my dear friend Martina from M's Art Impressions. I am now also the proud owner of a lovely acrylic from my friend Irina from Gypsy in Me....she painted a Clair de Lune scene for me in rich lavenders and grays and blues. This is a happy scene you have here today! HAVE FUN! Anita

Being on line can take up so much time - I often find I spend longer here than painting. Congratulations on your new site and thank you for the burst of colour - just what I needed. :)

The way the 2nd painting's blue vase of flowers pops against the background is perfect! Excellent colors...love the way you created the background, there's so much going on I could study it for hours! The vibrancy is uplifting, and the textures add such depth...the perfect combination :) Oh, and your website looks superb, the perfect home for your art...have an inspired day!
