Belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Wow so much to write. Can’t believe it’s nearly been a month since my last post but it seems during the holiday season time goes crazy quick and I find my to do list has been rather neglected and doubled in length…

Well firstly I would like to wish everyone a belated merry Christmas and happy New Year :)

And now I will get to the exciting news, I recently entered a painting into a competition held by the company Hint Mint. It was a festive themed contest and one person won each day on the countdown till Christmas day. I was thrilled to discover I had won for the 19th day, this being extra special as it was also my birthday :) There were lots of great winners and it was a fantastic, fun competition to enter. I very much hope they do it again next year! Below are two pictures of the painting I entered, I tried to scan it but the blue background kept disappearing so I apologise for the poor quality photographs…



One of the rules for the competition was to include either the companies logo or leaves. The image itself is a lot different to my usual work but I decided to give the painting to my sister and I knew she would appreciate something sweet and lacking in skulls…

I also had a commission just before Christmas which was another fun little painting to do and again different from my usual work. Below is a picture of it and I’m glad to report the owner loved it.


Furthermore, I wanted to say how I find Christmas a great time to create fun things either as presents for people or making your own cards (plus it tends to be more economic and heart felt!). So I thought I would include a few pictures of the things I made, one being a present to my Doctor Who fan brother and some cards I gave out to the family. I really like the cards and might make more to sell :)
