Mary's Lamb

6"x6" Oil on gessoboard

When I saw this lamb, the nursery rhyme 'Mary Had a Little Lamb' came to that's the title!  I usually paint flowers to celebrate spring... but when I saw this little lamb, I thought it would be a nice change!!

Blue Matches

6"x6" Oil on gessoboard
$90 + s/h

Nearly back to normal again!! Most of the house renovations are finished at last! The builders start my studio next week...I will be so glad to have some space! 
I've had this box of matches sitting around for ages, it's the first time I've seen blue ones, I have no idea where it came from but love painting closeups and reflections... my glass palette has become ideal  to sit still life subjects on!!
I'm busy doing a few larger paintings but will always love doing my small ones and will fit them in whenever I have time.

70x40cm (27"x16") Oil on canvas

This is a biggie compared to what I have been painting for the last year! It is for an exhibition in December.... I did start this last year but had to put it aside because we were moving house. A big thank you to Matt Kemp  a photographer from Sydney, Australia for allowing me to use his fantastic photo... I loved painting it!!  Take a look at his beautiful photography at
I have more big ones to do for the exhibition and all going well  some small daily ones as well!!

30 Day September Challenge is my collage of the 20 paintings I did in the challenge. I would love to have completed thirty but I'm really pleased I managed to get this many finished! It was a very busy month so now I'm looking forward to a break before I start bigger ones for an exhibition in December.
