Thank you Patricia Perry for the wonderful photos and to all the Makers, the board of the Business Centre and the wonderful staff of Midtown Makers. The last picture shows how I feel! Yay! We did it!
So Rosie required a makeover. This little goat had been sitting in the shop for a while. She is unframed and nobody was taking any notice of her sweet naughty face. She came home to play. It took me a while to source the sunflowers I desired. When I tracked the flowers down I was hesitant because they were expensive. Tucked in a corner I found the reduced flowers. And sunflowers. Perfect. She does look as if she might be smoking the petals...anyhow I have some lovely sunflowers to enjoy.
What better way to spend a cold and wet June day than in Midtown Makers? Especially as it was Election Day - AGAIN.....I didn't get to paint this time but just wait for next week! I shall be in the studio space and shop on Monday as usual.
Come and see them in Midtown Makers, Church Street, Ballymena. #cerisart; #animalsofmidtownmakers; #ballymenameansbusiness; #ballymenaartists;
Once upon a time....this little swan went to market. Well, she went to Midtown Makers in Ballymena. I took her home for a coat of varnish.
She was to come to Antrim Garden Show. It was our 'two days of summer' here in the north of Ireland so I was busy in the garden as well as the studio; painting garden furniture. The sprays looked alike....and missy here got splattered. Black gloss.
Yesterday I played with her as part of my June 15 minute practice. 15 minutes disappeared and so did the rest of the evening. It was wet. I was having fun. So here she is now. With a band of little fairy folk. She has been magicked.
