"Coffee Now!"

Here's a bright little fella to start (or continue) your day in the right direction ... and I'm sure we can all relate to "Coffee Now!"

He's rather special to me as he was inspired by the incredibly noisy barn owls which inhabit the eaves of our 400 year old barn (renovated) where our office and my studio is located. You'd think the owls obssessively re-arrange the furniture in their nests every single night, the scratchings and thumpings are so loud!

When they're quiet, we miss them, and when we're sitting outside on a balmy summer evening, it's the huge wing-span of owls that we look out for while we watch the stars.

I think they've invaded our hearts!!!

"Wild Profusion"

How on earth can two months have passed without me finding a moment to write a Paintings On Impulse blog!! I did spend a month of it in the UK doing some studies and teaching myself a new craft ... and since I've been back I have done some painting ... but even so, time seriously needs a bit of anchoring.

I have a lot of photographing of paintings and crafts to do, but in the meantime, here's a fairly new painting which grew on me slowly. It's called "Wild Profusion" and is oil on canvas with the background and vase painted using mainly brush, and the flowers using palette knife. She's for sale on my website.
