A few very sweet friends have been asking me why I hav'nt been posting in the last week.I've been in "cake mode" as Karen Boe phrased it. : )
It was only a two tier cake and I used fresh flowers for decoration,I made this for our neighbours and we were also invited to the wedding so that kept me busy for a few days.Our daughter is involved with a charity called Community Needs and I was also helping out.I donated a few of my paintings ,so I was busy getting them framed and ready.I donated the hire of my vases and silk flowers for their charity event on Sunday. I think they raised about £1200 for Africa.Alot of the work was carried out by local kids of all backgrounds,its given them skills and a huge boost to their confidence.Not to mention keeping them out of trouble.
So I've had quite alot going on this past week,its all been good ,but I've also been doing some soul searching about which direction my art is going in.I think I'm on the right track ,but I also want to explore different mediums from next year and possibly enrol for some short courses running in and around London.

I took a photo of this sunset back in spring and its been on my to do list.I must admit it was harder than the previous sunsets because of those rays coming through,but I think the challenge was well worth it.

I find with flowers if you cut the stem really short it makes them last at least four days longer.
