Colours of Life

If you change the way you tell your own story, you can change the colour and create a life in technicolour.

Pear and Bluebells

This little blue glass vase was a bargain buy from a charity shop, I fell in love with the colour. The bluebells are all over my garden, happily they grow without any input from me, since I am not exactly green fingered.

Pink Rose in Jam Jar

This is one I painted a few months ago but completely forgot to post. It sold yesterday and is on its way to a buyer in Norfolk.

At the moment I am busy putting furniture back, which is so much easier with the extra space created but de-cluttering. With the different colours on the walls I can now do the fun part....accessorizing. :  )

Grape Hyacinths in Warm Spring Sunshine

The weather has been stunning compared to this time last year, the sun is shining, the garden is full of spring flowers and even butterflies are gracing us with their presence.

Hanging On

This is my first painting after about two weeks, these roses were given as a present about two weeks ago and they've hung on almost as if they were waiting for me to record their life on canvas.
Most of the house is finished, just our bedroom and bathroom to go, its been tough but also quite liberating and therapeutic.

Pink Tulips

A week later and I've finished painting downstairs, the walls and ceilings are done. I've chosen peach and a warm yellow, it makes a change from the duck egg blue we've had for the last four years. The colours are warm and welcoming and I am looking forward to accessorizing with throws and cushions. I'm on a tight budget so the furniture and carpets are staying put for now, its wonderful that I've had the energy, resources and time to give our home some TLC.
I painted these tulips nearly a week ago, I had thought to add to it a bit more, but I think its done.

Pansies in the Morning

At the moment I am in the middle of redecorating, new colour scheme and complete spring clean. I've donated about twenty bags of clothes and books for charity and thrown out a whole lot of stuff that is no good to anyone. Its amazing how much we hoard and getting rid is great therapy, I feel lighter already and once all the decorating is done, I am hoping it will give my creativity a boost.
