I don’t really see spring.

At all.

There is snow up to my doggies belly (an Australia Cattle dog).

And more coming.


The days are getting longer though and day lights saving is this weekend  so I know that spring is near (well nearer).

Anyway, I am making my own spring in my studio even though out my windows, I am surrounding by a winter wonderland.

When I was a little girl, I know  I have mentioned this before, I would draw for hours, making up stories about the character I was drawing. I would talk out loud to my self.  Perhaps reciting the imagined dialogue I was giving them, changing their costumes, hair  and make up.  This was my favorite thing to do.  It was so much fun, I never bored with it.

Sometimes you forget that ‘fun’ part when you grow up. Sometimes you just start going through the motions, not engaged in the moment. Why do we do that, when it is so much more fun to be engaged?  To fully immerse yourself in it.

(Ha, ha I could be talking about cooking dinner, couldn’t I?  We can just apply this to anything and everything).

This painting is a reminder that, my favorite thing to do is to paint characters. To make-believe these character and  then try my best to breathe life into them.


She had long tired of sweet nothings.

How many nothings had she heard in her life time?

She longed for somethings to be whispered to her

Slow,steady  and sure


told to her in truth

Lasting somethings


wishing nothings

Baby Doll In Yellow

This is a 4″x6″ mixed media painting on paper covered canvas. The stretcher is 1.5″ deep the sides are painted red.

I think that this painting is more about how I wish my six year was and less like how she actually is. I am fairly sure if she saw this painting she would think it was babyish . I had to force this pose on her. Baby dolls are NOT her thing. She is way too mature for baby dolls but she is and will always be my baby doll, in yellow.

This painting is SOLD

There is something, for me, about yellow socks/stockings. They are hard to pull off without looking like big bird but, I had a pair when I was 16 and I used to wear them with my Mum’s Honeymoon suit that she got in Liverpool in the sixties before my parents emigrated to Canada. Truly a dream for a girl in the eighties hanging out with ‘The Mods’. I don’t think that I looked like a bird, unless, of course, you are thinking about the English slang for ‘girl’.
