I am working on illustrating the latest children's book for an author friend, we are then going to collaborate on a Nuggleton By The Sea children's last!  I am so excited to have the help as I haven't had time to write it and it will be lovely to get it off the back burner.

In between doing the work on John Leneghan's book, I have been relaxing by tweaking the acrylic I am doing of deckchairs, I am loving the contrast between the metallic gold of the beach and the blues of the sky and sea.

Sorry that I don't get to put a post on here as often as I would like.  Dave and I are preparing to take down our old conservatory and have a new extension built that will have a studio, office, dining area and sitting area overlooking the garden, so I am in the process of trying to paint whilst packing up everything!

I have completed the castle and boats picture for a birthday present, for my first attempt at a reflection I was quite pleased with it:

I am doing illustrations for a book cover and pages inside and I also have a commission for hand embellished Wedding Day print:

I love being a busy bee though and I have several oil paintings and acrylics on the go too!  I will put photos of those on soon.
