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!

I was there to deliver more of my moorland themed glass paintings  to Widecombe in the Moor National Trust gallery. They have a great selection of local crafts, this photo shows just a small area.

Recycled Abstract Art

I have pots with remnants of glass paint too solid for normal painting. Finally today I got round to using them and had fun scraping out the paint and putting it on plastic packaging to create some recycled art.

It’s turning out like an abstract coral reef and with the dried blobs of paint has a great texture. I’ve got the other sides to do, what do you think so far?
