Bank Holiday and Magic Box

Had a lovely long weekend camping in Wales for the bank holiday. The goal was to hike up the Brecon Beacons and do the Beacons Circuit, but the weather was spectacularly harsh. My partner and I were well equipped, but by the time we got to Pen-y-Fan it was clear our pooch was having a horrible time in the strong winds and sideways rain. So we're getting her a nice rain coat and returning soon to try again.

 

And here's a bit of WIP art. I joined Chris Oatley's Magic Box a couple of months ago and am almost finished with the second assignment (take a classic portrait and change the subject into an animal - I'm basing mine off Jean Francois Kaufmann's The Toast ).

Popup Shop Open

The week-long Popup Shop in the Park begins today! If you're in the Cheltenham area, come by to see some great art and crafts. You might even get to see Boomer, the world's cuddliest and soppiest dog. Be sure to wish her a Happy Birthday as she's just turned one!
