New things

Just a wee note - i've put some things into my Etsy shop which I haven't done for ages. There's a suede Elizabethan inspired collar and some brooches of varying price.

I'm hoping to do this a bit more often in future - as often as time will allow. I had hoped to pull off a sculptured brooch of my own making (it was to be a a feather) but the materials I used just weren't hard enough and the poor thing crumbled. I'll keep trying though because I like the idea...and well, I want a feather brooch.

Otherwise things are coming along well - setbacks are now lessening as I struggle onwards with the paintings. I'm finally finding paper really quite wonderful to work on - now that the horror of 'no mistakes' has revised many of my working habits.

I hope you're all well x

Changes in my store

If you hadn't read the news on my other blog, then my Etsy store is reopened with a difference! Hurray!

From now on i'm primarily selling download-able, print-your-own toys through there. And my prints are sold via my Society6 store.

As a celebration of this change of direction, i'm offering Mr Mystical Cowboy for free. Just click this link

All you need to construct him is some small scissors (or a scalpel), a few small brads and either a small hole punch or be very patient with your small scissors!

The jumping jacks in my shop are packaged with instructions, I just haven't got round to it with this fella.

New Prints

I've now opened a Society 6 store to deal with prints which I cannot manage myself.
The first 2 prints are Fox Confessor and The Flora and Fauna of Intoxication.

The store is here.
Details on why, and various ephemera are now given on my new blog.

Unusual gift

I had previously forgotten all about the fact that I said i'd copy posts from my new blog to this one...I said it, and it was recorded publicly and then I didn't bother...Fairly typical then.

I remembered tonight, so here's a link to the post about the very unusual gift I was given

A couple a' things

Well first of all i've been a busy wee bee. I've redesigned my website and blog and relocated the whole shebang over here:

The new blog is powered by typepad and makes my life a lot easier. You can go directly over there by clicking here. Go check it out, I have posted a new painting!

I will keep posting here and redirecting your kind attentions there for a while :)

Better Image

I managed to piecemeal scan in the fox today. My scanner is really annoyingly doing a faint red line across everything now - so I have just bought a new one. Hopefully to arrive in the next few days. Thank goodness, so sick of cloning that line out.

If you click the image you'll get to see a much larger version.

It's called 'The fox confessor', after the Neko Case song. I was only just introduced to her by a good freind and am now obsessively smitten. She happens to be playing in Glasgow in September, and I may have to go.

The painting was made under the influence of her and also Kate Bush's 'Aerial' album (Also from the same freind - I scoffed when they said it was her best album, how wrong was I?)
