I decided that l should record the way that my paintings evolve. So here is the first painting that l have recorded. This is the first time l have played around with stencils and moulding paste.
Finished it this morning and then sold it !
The next one is a canvas that l was given by the Charity Shop, next door! It was a pink and white PlayBoy printing. I tried painting it over with white paint ....3 coats and it is still showing through. So l decided to cover it all over with Chinese newspaper. That worked.
Then l did some paintings .... wazs experimenting with shapes and colours.
Decided to add some black lines .... did some wiping of paint away, to expose the paper beneath.
I added a stencil of figures and a face and l think it is finished!

Look ... l am growing my own fungi ! :) Aren't they gorgeous ?
Last year, when we had our Open Studio's Event, there was a purple bike used as advertising. So l was thinking, l might try and do the same this year. And then joy of joys ... l have found an old bike that is being thrown out ... so l think l will have my own advertising bike! Yeh !!
I may not have liked the rain but my garden loved it!
This is the "hanging" art line, that my son put up for me, when he was home last week.
I am experimenting with painting a Noah's Ark ... titled ... "Who let the tiger on "!
These next images are the way l have been changing it, to reach where l am happy with it , at the moment!
Still away to go yet but l am learning so much.

We just got off the train and you must be wondering what all these people are looking at and photographing ?
The amazing Shard. My husband took me all the way to the top ... on Bonfire Night, last year! It was a Birthday present ... it was amazing!
Isn't it funny how people still want to be photographed in a Red, British Phone Box !
Along the river front ..The Thames, of course !
So many visitors, all with little flags being held up, so they can all find each other !! :)
Oh! ... Boris Bikes are no longer blue, no longer called Boris Bikes and will all eventually be yellow. Very strange !
Love this reflection!
As we sat in a resturant, l suddenly realised l could see " The Traitor's Gate " water entrance!
Wow ... l hadn't seen this sculture before! Beautiful.
This is one of the many " Story Book " decorated seats, that are all over London.
I just love the London Skyscape.
My husband and my son ! :)
The first view of those famous poppies.
Another view of The Shard.
They are all coming to see The Poppies, either by foot, bike or on buses !
One of these is mine you know ! You buy one for £25 and you get it sent to you, in November !
It is even more stunning in the "real"! They will keep growing until November ... wow!
