This weeks blog is a photo of my latest miniature flower painting ‘Touch of Spring’. I hope some of you enjoy it. 🙂
They’ll be more to come next week. 🙂 Feel free to skip the art diary if that isn’t your thing. 🙂

Art Diary… Big steps in miniature
I am currently working on series 2 of the miniature flowers, this painting is number 1 in this series. I’ll have all the miniatures up in a blog together when they’re all finished. 🙂
This painting is rather apt in its title for me, in so much as spring is a time of new beginnings. Series 2 marks the beginning of a new phase of working for me. I had no idea what to expect when I had the idea to do these paintings. I didn’t go in with expectations except to do the first series and see what happens. So I’m very grateful that it’s all going well and they have been well received.
All of series one is finished and have all been sold. Series 2 and part of series 3 will be for the Station Masters Gallery. I have no idea what to expect. The last three of series one were bought a week after they went into the gallery. So who knows how the next series will go. I’ve found it un-predictable. Some sell before they’re finished other sit a little while. I suppose each time is as different as each flower. 🙂
It’s all happened very suddenly I really haven’t had time to think about it much which is probably a good thing knowing me. 🙂 I’m just head down, on a steep learning curve working hard to make the most it. 🙂
Whatever happens I am just very grateful and I feel very blessed that I am able to pursue what I love in the capacity I am now. I’m having to learn how to juggle home, friends and two completely different modes of painting (miniatures and large paintings) but I am content in the fray of it all and I’m sure this initial burst of activity won’t continue to be as intense as it is now.
Then again if you don’t grab the opportunities when they come and run with them you sit and wonder..what if…and I have no intention of sitting and wondering about what could have been. 🙂
Until next week, wishing you all a bright and lovely week ahead.
Brightest blessings to you all.
