Originals for sale

It’s been a strange week full of interruptions from one thing or another so have only managed to steal moments here and there at the drawing board - one thing I LOVE about working with pencils is their convenience, being able to pick them up where you left off and put them down just as easily. No worries of paint drying, cleaning palettes and brushes, putting paints away, etc, etc. I’m hoping next week is less busy as I have a painting I really need to make a start on.


Seriously!

Regular readers of my blog may recognise the images in today’s post as they are drawings I’ve completed in the past year or so and are amongst others I now have available for sale. I thought I would mention this as I’ve recently updated both my blog (links to pages are at the top of the sidebar to the right) and website to show those currently available. And you never know, there may be somebody out there reading this post who is looking to invest in an original work of art and I have just what they were looking for!
