Still playing with my WIP agapanthus project.  Lots of fiddly bits 😩🎨
The rose is a symbol of love, honour and faith.  On reflection we are all a work in progress no matter our age or parenting skills.  Happy Mothers Day to all the mummas of human children, furkids and those who nurture and make the world a better place πŸ’•πŸŒΉπŸ™πŸ»

My protea is blooming like crazy!  I bought it as a reference subject for this botanical illustration. Once the artwork is complete, the chosen one ends up planted in my garden, it's huge now!

Too many artworks on the go ... trying to bring some colour in πŸ’•πŸŒˆπŸŽ¨
Often the prep for an artwork takes so much longer than the painting itself.  Finally underway working on a piece for a special project 🌎🎨
New painting finished, this time a furniture piece for my art studio from

Nothing says Valentines Day like a dead leaf 😩well at least it's heart shaped ❀️. A rush job but I miss colour already and live subjects!  Sending a special message to my dear friend and gifted artist Jess @inkyleaves who is about to launch her Leafscape Exhibition.  You are such an inspiration Jess, following the road less travelled and creating the most beautiful works of art.  Wish I could be there but sending heartfelt congratulations on an extraordinary body of work πŸƒπŸ’•πŸŽ¨πŸ˜˜
Oops left it a little late to create my usual nature inspired Valentine painting!  Two hours in and first washes on, still very much a WIP πŸŽ¨πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’
