I've had such a lovely week! 

Following our nice relaxing weekend away in Chester, I managed to spend a few days in my art studio creating.  I have a thing about horses at the moment, mainly wooden toy horses, all shabby and faded and worn.  I have a few miniature ones that i picked up at various boot sales and they look great on my assemblage pieces, but i need more!

New work
Toy horses





I love this little vintage book, i found it amongst a stash of vintage books i bought ages ago for the shop, and i couldn't part with it. I have an inkling to paint a wooden doll and i love this style.

Currently reading: 
I found this book in Chester for fifty pence, couldn't resist it...
"Vivid images leave your mouth watering and your senses sharpened. Moore Ede'ssenseof adventure is compelling... he imparts the fascinating history of honey with genuine, insightful narrative and a restless passion for knowledge and adventure".

"Our treasure lies in the beehive of our knowledge.We are perpetually on the way thither, being by nature winged insects and honey gatherers of the mind".
- Friedrich Nietzsche

Tina I love your new work, I too have a thing for horses at the moment and houses are constantly popping up in my work at the moment also, I even drew a little house on wheels just like one of yours the other day....spooky lol ;o)

I can't get into my art room at the moment though as I'm having damp problems in there and it's being ripped apart, so it's sketching all the way for me right now.

I will have to be content with looking at other peoples gorgeous work for now.

I hope you're keeping warm in the snowy weather.
