Sketching and news

The last couple of days have been hectic here!
I've managed to maintain the sketching though :)

I also have some good news!
For a while I have written stories to go with some of my paintings and after seeing a course which explains the techniques of story writing, I applied to join it.
Yesterday I had my interview and assessment and am delighted to tell you all I passed and am now enrolled on the course!
The interviewer also told me that because I have a way with words, both written and spoken, she'd like me to consider putting my name down for a teaching position at the college.
Complete surprise and great compliment !

Sketches - here they are :)

  2. Thank you, Prabal.
    I try with some paintings to tell a story - and then I also write it down too :) Perhaps one day I will put it on here for you to read :)
    Sketching is great when not enough time for a painting :) xx

  4. Thanks, Vic. They are the ones I spent longest on, the book ones tend to be quicker sketches . xx

  11. Hai Pat. Congratulations with this good news! I'm very happy for you! It's like getting an award for your work and who you are.
    I like your sketches very much. They inspire me. I'm walking about a half year now with a sketchbook in my bag and didn't do a thing with it. Maybe....
