So excited end of financial year almost done, big to do list in my art studio!  Working larger, abstract, botanical subjects but less traditional ... can’t wait!  No roses for a while though ... hope you’re all finding your creative space 💕🙏🏻🌎
It’s been way too long... and it’s winter now so no roses left!  Plenty of inspiration though, can’t wait to paint again 🎨💕🙏🏻
