Hello, Hello, Hello Happy 2017

I'd like to start by wishing everyone a very HAPPY and HEALTHY 2017.

I didn't do much blogging in 2016 - I have no excuses only that I didn't have the mojo or inclination to do anything much.  I'm hoping to get back into making and selling my jewellery again this year and make my website live (it's been sitting dormant for the last 12 months).

So I'm going to start today with joining in with the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge which is run by Leslie Saeta every year.  It's really interesting to see what others create.

For Day #1 - ATC mushroom in oil pastels. I thought this challenge would be a good idea to try mediums I don't use but have wanted to have a go at. I bought the Caran d'Ache and Sennelier brands last year but haven't had time to play with them much. This one is done using Sennelier. 

Hope to see you soon.

Hi Anita! I'm a fellow AFAer (I go by Amapola) and found my way to the 30 Paintings challenge from there & recognized your mushroom ATC painting. Not sure yet if I'll join myself, but I'm tempted. I adore your funky mushroom, love the depth of the colours.

A cute little mushroom! Glad to see you getting some mojo back and I look forward to seeing your pieces in the 30/30 challenge.
