Relax, blow some bubbles - and paint!

This is a painting I made to go in my new reflexology room here in Fife.

I wanted the colours to say calm, the bottles to spell out the message of "relax".

The bubbles were painted to remind the viewer of a time when they knew no worries. How many of us have blown bubbles? I have and had a whale of a time blowing, then chasing them before they popped!

The bubbles include some small paintings showing what I do to relax.
Being at a loch, being by the beach, gardening, reading, painting and of course, reflexology! 
Have I included your favourite way of relaxing?


For the painters amongst my viewers, the paper is Saunders Waterford, the type is 140lb rough, and the size is a quarter sheet. The paints are Winsor & Newton artist quality.

A mischievous little sprite

Here in my painting world, I sometimes get little "fancies" of what I'd like to paint.
Because I don't paint solely to commission, I can happily indulge myself - and this is what I've done here.

A mischievous sprite, whose background details are made of stylised leaves, trees and bark, ( you might have to look closely) this is Tink

Painted on Saunders Waterford 140lb rough paper, using Winsor & Newton paints, Graphik line painters, Schminke Aqua Bronze "rich gold". Size 15" x 11"
