Trompe L'oeil and other stuff

Blogging has had to take a back seat in February as I've been busy busy busy working on several projects all at once and of course Kimba has been keeping me occupied with muddy walks galore!
The bathroom Trompe L'oeil attempt is coming along and gradually taking shape visitors to the house have been quick to comment and so far comments have varied from "looks like something from Saving Nemo" to my favourite "I thought it was a real fish tank" yay!
I'm still prepared to paint over it with emulsion if it doesn't meet my intended idea but so far so good and to be honest it's great fun for me.

I have also been busy with a couple of commissions this is one I just completed of another gorgeous little JRT, I painted it in pastels on A3 pastelmat card

And finally I have started a graphite portrait of our gorgeous Kimba.....theres a long way to go on this one as she is a hairy beast and those curls will give me headaches for sure!

Love the Trompe L'oeil - are there going to be several of these - the same, or different themes - or don't you know yet (evolving as it goes along) :o)

Look forward to seeing Kimba's portrait emerge .... so pleased that she is keeping you busy playing in the mud!

Oh my word! steady on Sue I think this one is going to be months in the making so I doubt there will be several (in any case bare wall space is at a premium in our house LOL)It's all just a madcap experiment to keep me out of mischief! Likewise Kimba's portrait will be a long process if I don't get too lost in those curls :-)
