Introducing..... Iris :)

Here at last are the lovely pictures from Gemma's Moley. It's named Iris and was an absolute joy to open and explore.

A delicate fusion of beautiful pictures and words.

I have sooo enjoyed my visit, wandering through Gemma's ideal home.

I hope I can do justice to this beautiful moleskin :) It's sooo lovely, Gemma :)

Dolors beautiful Moly

Hi everyone so sorry for the late posting of these pictures, i eventually smacked my scanner into order (after punching it ha ha )
Any way it's working well now after it's little beating. So here is Dolors beautiful Moly.......

Wow look at this beautiful sketchbook, the long stretch of beach, the happy smiling faces, i just want to jump straight into it and spend my afternoon soaking up the sun and laughing with these happy people.

Soaring high above the pretty little yachts reflecting in the rippling waves.
Listening to the gulls crying.

And watching smiling happy children running on the beach. I love the way Dolors has captured the entire feeling of the beach, it's sounds and sights captured forever on her pages. I love this girls cute little dress and the underside of her foot and the way the light has hit her leg causing shadow on oneside.
Oh how i love the sea i can't wait to add to what is already a lovely journal.
*Just trying to rack my brains now for something that compliments Dolors magical paintwork* i have a feeling this will take a while :)
I hope everyone is ok?

Kim's book has arrived and it is wonderfully imaginative and going to be so much fun to carry on her theme. I see a fantasy life ahead.

Look at this cutie. How wonderful to have a stallion that moonlights as a Unicorn.

Now we are underwater because there are creatures we all know of that live and are cared for by this beautiful maiden.
Now look at these wonderfully rendered lovelies. I can hardly believe that I get to add to this wonderful book.

What if i published a poetry book?

Hey all, im still awaitig Dolors book in the post but will keep you updated when it arrives. Mine is on its way to Kim (after the mishap at it ending up with Dolors *sorry*)
Meanwhile i was after a little bit of an opinion on whether to go ahead and publish a book of my poetry and illustrations. I'd love to know whether any of you would consider such a purchase if i were to publish?
(For a better understanding of my poetry please pop by my blog and take a look at some of the ones i've posted)
I'd be really really grateful if you could give me your opinion as im a bit scared and nervous of the whole thing and whether it would actually sell if i were to go ahead and do it.
Please pop by and comment (or comment here) There's a little more info on my blog here's the link here
I can't wait to hear from you all

The beautiful olive trees of Anna

I received the Moleskine book from Anna. When you open it, immediately you are transported to a sunny hill in the Mediterranean, where the ground is red and terraced with old stones. A group of trees are there from a thousand of years ago or more, surviving the wind and the cold, the drought and the heat. In the autumn they are full of little fruits, from which people take the oil, source of live for generations.

Anna's olives are incredible, an explosion of light and colours that you can open and enjoy. Here are the pictures, so you can see them. I'm so happy to receive her book. Now I have to think in something to draw. Thank you Anna, what a magical scene.

It will be posted today and fingers crossed it arrives ok, as we have had some bad postal strikes just lately here in the UK.
I can't wait to recieve Dolors journal, i will post as soon as it lands upon my doorstep.

Hugs to you all

Just in time!

I thought I wouldn't make it! First, the lack of time and then panicking in front of the blank paper. Stop the train I want to get off!!

I feel soooo relieved, Pat!

I painted an olive grove because I love olive trees, so my topic could be 'nature' or 'landscapes'.
Anyway, if you don't feel comfortable with the topic, paint whatever makes you feel at ease.

Now I have to meet Dolors. She lives 100 kms from my place but we are in touch.

Have a nice week !
