This was the very first ever character painting weekend, and I was a little apprehensive to say the least...Had I bitten off more than I could chew, teaching complete beginners to paint their own character...??? Well see what you think...
This is Jeanne (aka chocolate lady, and yes of course she brought chocolate with her...) It is her pearl wedding anniversary today....jeez is that 30 years..??? 3 life sentences, lol. My idea of hell as you all know, lmao....Anyway to celebrate she put the choccies in gorgeous little bags she had made from pearly card. Yummy, just eating mine now...very healthy cos it contains oats and apricots, so combined with the very nutricious jaffa cakes and a banana bagel theres my 5 for the day sorted..!!! ( only joking J..!!! honest).
So heres her journey.....
Did you catch a glimpse of the bracelet she was wearing..?? She made it herself, from beads, it took her hours. I fell in love with it, the colours, the style, everything, and I'm not even a bead fan. Imagine my surprise when she came in the next day and gave it to me as a gift. Yes there was tears, lol. It has no metal on it whatsoever so I can actually wear it without erupting..!! Thanks babe I will treasure it. xx
Next up is the lovely Anne ( commonly known as Liverpool Lou).
I just love the way shes stood, all sweet and innocent (just like me..!!!lol). Anne christened her Miss Goody Two Shoes..!!!
Next we have another Anne
The ballet shoes were beautifully laced with organza ribbons, and despite suffering from a strange sickly pallor all weekend, she turned out the picture of health.
Sara had firm ideas in her head before she arrived, but wasn,t sure wether she could put them into practise..!!!
Ha ha she looks just like her..!!! She decided to christen her Ariadne...on behalf of her magical powers.
And last but not least Teresa.
She was absolutely chuffed to bits and is finally getting to find a little faith in herself, lol.
And then there was me.
This is my painted background oversprayed with my new inks.
Then I drew the design on.
halfway through the painting...
And here she is finished.
Here they all are, displayed together. Look great, don,t they..???
Big thanks to the Lovely Katie for stepping in and organising a lot of the catering.
Had a brill surprise on Fri night, The Babe was supposed to be driving up to mine on Sat. He rang me around 10, sounding really miserable and down. The next minute he was walking into the studio, he'd sneaked up the fire escape. Yayyyy made my night. Shame He always has to go again though, lol.
Right well I,ve got preview projects coming out of my ears, so I need to scoot before Our Ben catches me, lmao.
