A few bits and bobs . . .

I can't believe it's been so long since I have posted on here.  It's not that I haven't been doing anything creatively. I've been doing lots.  I have had some card orders to fulfill, and a few commissions to create, which have kept me busy in between all of my food blogging.  I did a newsletter for that, been working on an Illustrated cookery book as well as a couple of children's stories, which I have written and illustrated myself.   Now begins the hard work of finding agents for those.  Wish me luck!

In the meantime here is what else I have been creating.

Joy . . . I love the feeling of this one.   I just sat down one day and it came out.  Joy like a River

A Modigliani inspired chalk drawing.   I quite like this one.  She dreamed of Orchards.

A commission I did for one of the Missionary Sisters of her nieces.  She liked it very much.

Two additional outfits.  So  I guess I have been rather busy.
