This is a new artwork that I just finished tonight. It is based on a photo I took of my daughter whilst she was fast asleep on the sofa with her favorite toy. She looked so cute I just had to take the photo but I wanted to make the painting more fairy-tale. I like this style/technique when using oil paints so would like to try out some more work in a similar vein soon.

Had lots of fun last Saturday, attending my first Dr Sketchy event at the Glee Club, Nottingham. I would describe it as 'Life-drawing with added pizazz!' Models were all Burlesque dancers complete with retro hairstyles, cool tattoos, sparkles and feathers! I would definitely recommend attending one and will certainly be going to more of these events. It's really good value as well, (£8 for three hours + a few performances thrown in!)

So this is my very first post, which I'm hoping will encourage me to do more art, more often! We'll see. I do have a lot of other things to contend with at the moment, being in my last trimester and having a 2 1/2 year old to entertain. But it's the summer holidays so it's as good a time as any.
