I have been quiet for the last few weeks!! Been very busy preparing for my upcoming art exhibition with a fellow artist. I'm now painting like crazy in my new studio, which is proving to be a perfect working environment :) So much easier than painting at our dining room table which is placed in an open living environment! So nice to have the peace and quiet of my studio and a gentle sound of classical music in the background....Just what I need, a perfect retreat at last and my creative juices are flowing and I'm on a bit of a roll :)

This is one of my paintings that I have just completed....I enjoyed doing this one and I'm loving painting what I want to paint and putting my own mark on my artworks :)
