Some of my favourite pieces

... and recently done:

These two small plates (see my hand?) I painted with flowers, in a basket I made with dimensional paste! So, the basket is raised. It was a fun project, which I painted two-at-a-time :)

This is the close-up of a corner, showing the dimensional-paste scroll-work on my painting, A blue vase of roses:

A 7 1/2 inch square, with palette-knife background:

7 by 11 - ish - that's about the size of this painting:  A stylised tulip:

A tin waste-bin, in creamy white, with pink roses, and forget-me-nots:

My first chrysanthemum : In a hot pink, on an off-white ceramic plate:

My peacock, looking so coy!!! Doodled in pen-and-ink, and painted in metalics:

Two potholders, in wood, measuring about 5-inch square. 

Background painted in milk chocolate. Lace, in Titanium white.

Some pieces I enjoyed painting

Acrylic paints, on mdf board. Starting with this fun piece of imaginary flowers:


I know they don't exist IRL, but I love painting blue roses :)

This heart now lives in Australia: a gift for a friend's mum:

Calla lilies, in acrylic, on a plastic potholder:


If you walk into Ikea, you'll see these mirrors! This first one, I doodled on with gold ink. It is very dramatic on a black background!

Pen-and-ink, and only flowers!

And now, my Royal Icing mirrors!

White dimensional paste, on white:
