Shake and Dance

Over at Mix it Monthly the theme is "crazy dresses" and at SoArtful challenges the theme is "spectacles" so I've combined these two fun themes with these funky ladies doing their bit on the dance floor!
Let your hair down ladies and have some fun!

Journal Frida

Over at art journal journey the theme this month is Frida, so I'm linking this journal piece with my colourful messy Frida. Her life was so hard and with much pain, all my scribbles reflect her hardships  and the bright colours her passion and flare! 
Much love and ease to all,

Abstract Trees

This piece is a canvas that I've been playing with on and off for a while. It has Summer's warmth shining through and some cooling trees to sit under and dream!
I hope you are all letting go and enjoying Summer!

This one is the finished piece, I had to play and round it up a little more.
Love to all

Mountain Holidays

Hello to all! It's great to be back to blog land and share with you this little collection of holiday photos and journal art above. We all had a super time in our favourite mountains in Serre-Chevalier, this time staying in a little village which you can see in the photo below away in the distance on the left side (Le Casset), a truly magical place, we loved it!

Summer of Colour- Trees and Flowers

Hello to all, I've been busy getting ready for our holidays to the mountains today and wasn't sure I'd manage to slip in some arty time for this last Summer of Colour. When I saw that this week the colours were raspberry, tangerine and a pop of lemon I had to make some time and play, so I quickly got out my water colours, pens and wax pastels and let these colours flow.

I am often short on time but I find that sometimes just letting the brush loose and not thinking of where a piece is going is so liberating and the results flow.

A big thanks to all who comment this week, sorry if I don't get back to you, I'm leaving tomorrow and 
I think I'll leave my computer at home and will have some off line time!

Hugs to all and thanks Kristin for all this colourful fun!

Feathery Tree

This is being linked to Soartful Challenges where this months theme is "feathers." It's my light feathery leaf tree!

Summer of Colour- Blues and Reds

I've had an evening of painting and getting into this weeks colours: red, royal blue and a pop of light blue.  So I tried to play with these and came up with some playful pieces. They feel airy and free to me, as was this beautiful day here. It felt more like a September day, deep blue sky this morning after last nights storm and so airy and fresh. The colours were clear and bright! I should have snapped some time.

These days are so special, the light dazzles and delights, so here's wishing you all deep blue skied days!
