bits 'n pieces

Hey folks - the weather here has been fantastic some days and its hard to be creative when the sun is shining. I have a few images of sunshine, some jewellery which I made at a workshop and some paintings on canvas board with moulding paste - love this stuff. I've lots of more work started as always but should complete some more fairly soon.

I took a half day off work last week and went for a short drive to a small village called Carlingford. It is a beautiful village and across the lough you can see the beautiful Mourne Mountains.

More WIP

I dont even know why I am adding these but I have many works that are started and never get finished. They will be ........................................... someday - but not just yet, I have lots more work to start on lol.

These are 2 of 5 pieces I made while at a silk papermaking workshop last week with Tunde Toth. It was a great day and lots was learned, I just need to give up the day job to be able to complete all my creations. These are not complete by any means but just a trial of what they could be.

I'm also doing some work for Fibre in Form online workshops so hopefully I will have some work from those experiments soon. :0))))

Textile Hanging (WIP)

This is very much a work in progress at present but its a good start. Not really good to practice a vermicilli stitch on somehting so big but so far I'm liking it. I was very lucky meet a lovely and talented textile artist at Art in Action last week (Ester Kiley) and she kindly gave me a full demo and instructions on how to finish this off properly. So watch this space...... probably months down the line from now lol. I have a few more paintings complete which I will get loaded up here soon too.
