Garden Paths


First of all can I say a massive thankyou to all of you that have 'liked' my page on Facebook. This picture above was an illustration I did a while ago and it seemed so fitting to celebrate the occasion. (I added the text afterwards!) Thankyou to my bloggie friends too! I really enjoy your visits and your comments here.

Do you remember the painting I was working on in my previous post? I've now finished it and given it a layer of varnish to protect the surface. It's now ready in waiting for its next adventure. I hope someone would like to buy it and give it a new home. :)

(The copyright watermark won't appear on the actual painting.)

I love to look at people's houses and imagine what it would be like to live there. I do admire pretty gardens too and wish the magic garden fairy would do all my gardening for me, well maybe not all of it because I like to do a little bit of planting when I'm on the mood but I could do with some help if I'm ever to get close to the garden of my dreams! ;)





 The new painting is painted on 2cm deep canvas and it measures 25 x 35cm. I've used coloured tissue paper and acrylic paint to achieve the textures and layers and added touches of white ink for the 'smoke'.

I've fixed the back with D-rings and string so it's ready to hang on your wall. It's now listed for sale in my Etsy shop and if you have any questions I'd be more than happy to answer!

Well done on your Facebook "likes" (I don't do Facebook so can't like you on there!)
Another beautiful picture - do you know I think that would be fabulous as a fabric design.

Jess, this is beautiful. You have included all of my favorite colors. It looks like such a happy place to live. I too often wonder who lives in each house and what they are doing.

I'm a fan of your paintings Jessie,the wonderful happy worlds you create are such a joy to look at, lovely details and beautiful colors, you should have a solo show with works like these, they would brighten up people's houses (and any dark and rainy day)
keep on painting dear Jess, xx
