well, it is a beautiful day today.....
This painting is another 4x6 painting (postcard Art)...I haven't listed it anywhere yet as I am not sure where to list it.
I am also going to give facebook a miss for a while as it was behaving in a funny way and then I got a virus. Luckily my pc picked it up and removed it but I am sure that facebook was the culprit as the rest of my pc was ok....
I am also not going to open any emails with jokes for a while just in case....better safe than sorry....

Nothing like a touch of purple to start the day.
Very misty and damp outside so a bit of colours brightens things up.
I hope to get some more painting done today....
Sales have slowed down quite a bit lately. I often go to ebay and see who is selling to see if I can understand why some people sell loads and others nothing....baffles me
I see people having multiple bids on their PRINTS and yet often I seem to have no bids on my originals. I see bids on work that is nice but nothing special.....all a mystery.....

I had to take the car to the garage to be serviced this morning...it is a long walk back up....very steep climb. I got three quarters of the way back up when a car stopped to give me a lift. It was actor Michael Sheen's dad.....he ran me the rest of the way home......thank you Meyrick !! I am now waiting for the call to walk DOWN to get it....at least it is easier going down.....
I can't get on with any painting because I don't like stopping in mid flow...so here is one that I made yesterday......

I have done a few cartoons this week....some are in my folksy shop http://www.folksy.com/shops/teabreaks
It is nice now and again to paint something a bit different...a bit like taking a holiday....so here is the ballerina who got a bit too enthusiastic about her pirouette !!

Yesterday, I made my frist attempt at painting in acrylics. Here is the result. I have a lot to learn as I think the river looks more like a road....perhaps I should paint it brown !
It was also a much larger painting than I have ever attempted before. This one is 14" x 8" and so it took a whole new thought pattern to achieve it. And I forgot to add my usual two birds in the sky !!

this encaustic painting, I have named ice cavern. With encaustic painting you never really know what the results will be like...you just keep moving the wax around until you like the picture. I thought that on this one, it looked like a tiny house on the left with pointed rocks, so I named it Ice Cavern.
I love the mix of the blues and mauves on this. Encaustic art is such fun to do and the results can be quite amazing.
Yesterday I went to a ladies club and did a demonstration of encaustic art. This is one of the pictures that I painted. Encaustic art is created by melting high density coloured wax onto the bottom of a small travel iron. The iron is then applied to special shiny card to create patterns. The results can be stunning and you are never quite sure what the final picture will look like ! I have two more that I will show on here tomorrow and Friday.....

a wet Monday morning....again....but I prefer that to frost and snow.....One day nearer to Spring.
Here is another of my purple / pink paintings.....
I have a few more ready to take pictures of and list in one of my shops or on ebay.
had a lovely lie in this morning...just got up and dressed in time for my Asda delivery...phew...lol
I have spent most of the afternoon painting as I have sold three aceos this weekend. Not mega bucks but every little bit helps.....
I have a very busy week so need to get more painting done tonight......stock piling !!!

this one has a lot more colour than I usually put on landscapes but I like colour and don't particularly like just greens and browns. I think a bit of unusual colour in a painting is nice.
The fog has all gone from last night and I can see the seafront again. It looks like it is damp outide but it is still a bit dark, so difficult to see.
I need to do some more listings on ebay which is really slow at the moment...thank goodness for sales on Folksy!!. to see my ebay listings, go to
http://www.gweddusart.co.uk and click on the ebay link.
To see my Folksy shop, go to
stay warm everyone....particularly my friends in the US, as I see that the weather there is really nasty at the moment.
