Sneaky Peeky (!)

I've been talking, talking, talking about a new series of the small paintings
and then other projects jump in front and take priority.
But now I really do have more underway, so here's a little sneaky preview
of a couple of them...
And for those of you who keep asking to see some new works,
I'll let you know when this first lot is finished... ;)

Pinterest

Pinterest is too much fun.
It's inspiring, stimulating & is putting me onto some other great sites and blogs I probably never would have stumbled across.
But it doesn't get my real life projects done!
Say good bye to an afternoon and take a look!
