New beginnings

Hello,

As I write this the sun is shining and it has been the most glorious day, 17 degrees and sunny at the end of March, wow. I know it won’t last long, we are due to go back to seasonal temperatures in a couple of days. But while it is here I will feel blessed, and continue to clear the garden.

Why am I ‘clearing the garden’ you ask, well it is due to the house move, We have found the most wonderful house to move to as I mentioned in my last post, but unfortunately it has no garden to speak of. There are hanging baskets and we can have a few pots, but that will be it really. Jo became very despondent about this, but a plan of action has been made and we are now on the waiting list for an allotment. Only a half plot, but it will mean that we can continue to grow our own vegetables and flowers. Lets hope that the wait is not too long, but as with everything of late, I am putting it out to the angels and guides, and when the time is right, it will happen.

I have just completed the 4th of 6 essays due for the Open University course I am undertaking, more on that in a future post. But I am almost there, and the last essay is due a few weeks before we are due to move.

I have been doing a lot of thinking about my art lately, but not much doing. I miss it and am planning some serious art time later this week, so will have some new angels to share with you soon. I have been trying to work out how to best share my angels with the world and I think that although I had set up an Etsy shop, my best way forward is with a Folksy shop. Folksy are a UK based, much smaller version of Etsy and this step just feels right. The creators on Folksy are a lovely bunch, and so talented, if you have never looked at it I urge you to take a peek. As soon as the shop is a little more stocked I will do a post about it.

This is the last piece of work I created, well finished. It was painted using a digital app on my clunky old i-pad, but I think she is beautiful.

She wanted to be called hope, and is holding a large golden orb, whilst being surrounded by lots of rings of light.

I have had a few cards made from this image and they will be in the Folksy shop soon, if you can’t wait, then please just message me.

I have also set up a ‘Buy me a Coffee’ page to fund the future of my digital art, so if you enjoy what I do and share, please consider buying me a brew. The page can be found here, thank you.

Well I think that is enough of my ramblings for now, I promise that it won’t be so long until the next missive.

I hope that whatever you are doing that life is being kind to you, blessings on all that you do and love to each and every one of you.

Love and Light til next time

Small steps forward

Wednesday 17th March – Happy St Patricks Day

Since I last posted here life has been a bit bonkers.

We have had to start looking for a new home to rent, as we were given notice by our current landlord. They want the house for their son and his girlfriend, which is a fair reason, but we have been here for nearly 8 years so it was a bit of a shock. Also due the upside down nature of the world at the moment the rental market is very difficult, lots of people looking and very few properties. We may have come to the end of our search, fingers crossed, any prayers for us would be very much appreicated. Thank you.

Friday 19th March – Well, that was quick, I started writing this two days ago, and already we have somewhere to live, we are so relieved. After six weeks of fruitless searching and beginning to think we would need to move from the Isle Of Wight, an angel has guided us to our new home. I am already planning an art space….

In other news, I have some new angels in the studio, images below.

I have just sent one off to be printed onto a canvas, wish me luck, I hope it comes out well. I will of course share either way, its all part of the journey. Some of the small paintings of wings have been made into greetings cards, they have been left blank so they are suitable for a variety of occassions and will be available in my Etsy shop shortly.

Going forwardsI will try to be a little more organised and regular with posting here, now that the stress of the move has passed my mind is calmer and clearer.

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, I wish you peace, love and light.

Until next time, take care.
