Heart of a rose

Just because we need to be reminded that summer will come again and the winter can’t last forever.


A taste of a book to come, hopefully

A taste of a book to come, hopefully

Since taking voluntary redundancy at the start of the year i have been hard at work on a project to paint a children’s picture book about a mother bat’s advice to her little battling. Maintaining the momentum has been hard but now i am just one picture away from finishing. I thought about using water colour pencils but just couldn’t get to grips with them. I found them too bright and i just coudn’t get the finish as even as i liked and so returned to my favourite medium- gouache. I don’t kid myself that finding a publisher is not going to be very hard work, but this was something i felt i had to try.
