Snow progress

Yesterday we had a snow storm and freezing temperatures, very rare for Devon in the UK.

Here’s how the conditions changed over 5 hours

Times like this I’m very glad I work from home. Keep safe and warm.


New Year New Direction

Happy New Year everyone and wishing you a happy and healthy 2018.

New Year CardI mentioned in a previous post that I’ll be working on a new project, so I’m excited about 2018 when I’ll be creating a colouring book and new wall art paintings. This new direction does involve some risk as I’m coming out of the local shop Spangles but will still sell online. I’ll continue to paint large bowls and vases for the National Trust Gallery and add to my Zazzle stores too, as I love designing on their products and the more regularly I work on Zazzle the more sales I get 🙂

Exeter Art week in May is also on the agenda with a plan to launch the colouring book and show my new paintings then. So no hibernating for me!

Christmas Eve

The last advent calendar photo. It’s been fun creating different images and I’m relieved I made it to the end! I hope you’ve enjoyed it.

So for those that celebrate I wish you a merry Christmas with the largest decorated tree at Crediton Christmas tree festival


Sleepy Lions

Christmas is almost upon us and hopefully time to relax like cats do!

So find a cat for the warmest spot, today’s advent calendar photo 🙂

A camel for today’s picture. They have the best view at Paignton zoo overlooking the sea!


21st December advent calendar picture

Yay, it’s winter solstice, the shortest day meaning from tomorrow onwards we’ll get more daylight.

Definitely worth celebrating with this image of wine glass reflections!


Bird talk! 

Good morning. Today’s advent calendar is of Topsham estuary in Devon with a pigeon and Canada Goose looking as though they’re having a chat!
