a favourite spot

the love of your life, (good opertunity to really study that love) January 2012

I piece done in a different medium to our usual


Another idea that I have tried to follow myself is an idea a day - I have lists of a couple of hundred different ideas that I pick one from and give it life on the page each day (or at least I try to). things from toungue tied to blue moon etc.



Fantasy, angels, Feb 2012 Faces, Doodles

Reflections on wet pavement or water.

Sky lines March 2012 of cities at night.

Sunlight and shadows.

Water falls in the snow or snow covered landscapes.

Elements of the gallxies from Hubble telescope photogallery.

Collages of the times.  such as clockworks and travel.

Just a few ideas.

Candy Canes!

Odd Angles

the human body


The best way to see future is to creat it.

So, SKYLINES then for March 2012?

So, by skylines, do you mean only city scenes qualify? Out where I live is farm country - our "skylines" are a little different!

Hi Lillian, as I replied when I posted the new theme, of course not, all skylines qualify. We don't want to limit the theme in anyway. I look forward to seeing your artwork soon. Sue
