So here’s a selection of gift ideas and festive supplies on pinterest, if like me you’ve not planned Christmas yet.

Halloween

It’s almost Halloween again! For me this signifys the clocks changing but I wish we could stay in summer time all year. Studies have shown it is safer to have daylight at the end of the day, less confusing for young children and animals too if the clocks never changed. However no UK government has been brave enough to do it yet!

So rant over I do have some Halloween themed art.

I’ve finished my animal alphabet miniature art collection and for letter V I’ve a vampire bat.Vampire Bat ACEO

For original glass paintings I’ve these black cat candle holders

On Zazzle I’ve a few designs and here is a selection of products including some other artists spooky work.

 

Miniature Art

I had a short holiday in Spain recently staying near Mijas where they have this fascinating miniature art museum. You view most of the items through magnifying glasses, as the paintings are on grains of rice, pin heads etc.

Obviously I couldn’t photograph those but here are some of their miniature sculptures. You can get an idea of the size by the screw on the bottom right.

Seeing these reminded me of the miniature ACEO paintings I did but have been sitting in a folder! Not as small as the artwork in the museum (ACEO are 2.5 by 3.5 inches) but I am now adding them to my Etsy shop. Many of them were part of an alphabet collection, some of you may remember the blog posts. I sold a few of the original alphabet challenge ones and will replace these with cards or prints.

Here are some, I’m hoping to have listed the whole alphabet by the end of next week.

 

 

 

New Wildlife Collections

I’ve been working on my website again and have a new wildlife art page as well as dragonfly and butterfly gifts, birds and pet lovers page.

It’s now possible to see matching products in one place with my original glass paintings and zazzle collections together. I’m pleased with the new look but always appreciate your comments!

Update 

Can’t believe a month has gone by since my last post but of course a lot has been happening in the UK. Thoughts and prayers to everyone effected.

I find solace in nature and art and thankful that I’m able to enjoy both. I’ve started painting a new dragonfly colour combination. Sold 2 large vases, so introduced this colour scheme on wine glasses as well. They will be available on my website soon.

Pleased to say I eventually sorted my bee video and it is now on dreamstime.

 That’s it for now, melting in high heat (for the UK) so need a siesta! 

New candle holders and a cute dog!

Spotted this doggy in the window from the bus. He’s so cute I had to share!

Art wise kingfisher’s have been popular and I’ve started some new candle holders. Thought the blue glass would work well with both kingfishers and dragonflies.

Planning on painting some fish on them next.
