While in Bendigo on holidays recently I went into Provincial for a dose of all things Frenchified and lovely and most things in there are just not on my super saver list so it’s drool only, but I did spy these gorgeous blue glazed handles and as my cupboard was missing handles and they were only $3.95 each I was all over them like flies on a picnic….speaking of picnic…
…how’s that for a segue? I am currently illustrating a piece on the theme picnic for a new group We Love to Illustrate and I have a month to do it YAY, it’s kind of nice to take my time and add lots of detail.
You cant really see this very clearly as it’s just my pencil rough before I start to paint.
Oh and by the way that is also my new easel that my lovely mummy bought me for my birthday.
Shhh it’s a bit of a secret but it’s my Fortieth (Yikes!!) birthday this Saturday, It’s kind of weird but I thought by the time I was Forty I would feel like a grown up but ya know I really don’t. Oh, and a heads up, for my birthday I would like to give away a present so keep a look out on Saturday (OK realistically maybe Sunday morning) for my giveaway!
