New small paintings

birthday girl

I am working on a series of small paintings in preparation for Autumn and Christmas, I hope to have these printed as greetings cards and maybe a few prints to frame. The last couple of weeks of the holidays were absolutely exhausting then getting the children settled back into school has left me feeling ragged and ever so slightly panicked about my lack of preparation for the coming season. I am trying to keep a business head and focus on what I think will be my best sellers, I have lists, charts and sketches all over the house! and to be honest there are many jobs I should be doing today but painting head toppled the business head right off my shoulders, I am justifying this as I do need new images that are specifically themed for cards and prints. I am also working on painted ceramics and planning peg dolls, christmas fairy dolls and maybe an advent calender.

Mushrooms or Toadstools

As well as the Halloween items I’m making up other Autumn stock for my shop, including some lovely mushrooms in different sizes. Made from linen and cotton they have a variety of faces that are similar in character to my Molly Dollies and my woodland hoots who will also be re-appearing for Autumn. I will be listing mushrooms over the next few days here.
