Awash with Daffs and a Sea Change

I love daffodils, they tell us spring is here at last !
I painted a loose, washy set of daffs, just because they were there :)
Hope you enjoy them .

Awash with daffs.

Arches 140 Rough, 8" x 11"

A Sea Change is a significant transformation  - - and I've had one of those!
Since the anguish of thinking two of my original paintings had been lost by the tracked mail service, I decided that no longer would I send originals in the post.  Can't tell you the emotions that happen when you think pieces are lost. Never wanting to go through that again,  I decided instead to make prints, cards and posters available on RedBubble. If you look to the right and click their logo it will take you to my profile on there.
That is  a big change for me, one I hope will also make my art more accessible to all. 


  1. What a beautiful daffodil painting! It is so difficult to paint definition in all those yellows, you did great! I'll have a look at Red Bubble and find out how that works.

  2. Thanks Judy!
    Will look forward to hearing what you think on RedBubble.
    I've to start work soon, but will be back this evening for a catch up xx

  3. I would also love to try making some of my own prints - but I wonder if the quality is any good? It would be great to hear what you think of your prints when you see them. Lovely Dafs by the way! :0)

  4. Oh those daffodils spell Spring, very fresh. Congratulations on starting up a RedBubble shop - hope you get lots of sales.

  5. Hi,Pat,
