Fear – It’s only paper thin.

July 29, 2015


Fear – it’s only paper thin. If you have been following my post…you will know I have been having a rough time painting lately.  This one I just completed and it depicts facing my fear…the paper with the “failed” painting on it and how I need to come out from behind the fear of my […]

Panicking away here.

July 24, 2015


Panique I am about to embark on a painting that I have been thinking about all week. The painting you see here is one that came of frustration, the last time I tried to paint an idea…I was going too slow.  I painted over it with this look, (me panicked…”oh no, I can’t paint, I […]

It’s a sad affair!

July 23, 2015


I have been opening my blog each evening after work, hoping for words back!  I feel so stupid…so that is what that little speech bubble up in the right hand corner is!!!

Narrow Field of Vision

July 19, 2015

When all is said and done, and the end of each day has come, my little friend Mini is here waiting patiently for me to return from my days labours. She is quite a beauty and a cutie. Mini-Meeps is a “rescue” cat…as you can see by the photo she has a wayward ear…her head […]

blogging101-who am I and why am I here?

I am Brenda I have worked for the past 29 years for one company.  I love it and am fulfilled by my work. It is varied and comes complete with daily surprises and opportunities.
