lovely things

I was going through a few old files the other day and came across this painting that I did for Anna, of Absolutely Beautiful Things. When I first entered the blogging arena, Anna was not only kind to me, but so inspirational. I painted this one in gouache of her "Mums" lovely table which I sent to her.
Now Anna Spiro will soon have an exciting new online shopping concept. Again, I am in awe of Anna and her love of absolutely beautiful things including a tiny obsession with all things pink.
Once my studio is complete, I anticipate having room to paint larger canvases full of finesse. I love knowing that collectively all over and under the world there is a love of gathering unique and absolutely beautiful things

One of the things I most admire about your work, is that you can capture very delicate pastels (with a dainty fairy hand) but also very intensely bright "gotcha" colours like the ones Anna favours. It's a rare gift to be that adaptable.
