Before you get all excited,
the loose woman bit
is artistically speaking,
not the other kind of loose.
You see I had a very inspirational day yesterday.
I went to visit Tracey Fletcher King
and she gave me plenty of tips
and some art supplies to try.
I decided to use some of those supplies and do a very quick
and loose painting.
Well the quick turned into an hour
and I almost lost my painting.
I put it out in the garden to dry while I made a coffee
and a cheeky Ibis thought it was his afternoon tea.
I had to run out and save it from the dirty blighter.
Most of my day was spent finishing off Terrie's pussy cat,
which I have finished and will send to you next week, Terrie.
Just a snippet of the painting to give you an idea.
This left just a short time to enter this weeks APR,
who's theme is "In your own back yard".
I was in the family room giving Charlie (my parrot) a tickle
when I saw an urn out by the pool.
The sun was shining on it and it just stood out and
I knew that's what I would paint.
The pot itself has all those gloopy blue bits
and is really quite pretty.
It's not an overly loose painting
but I have to say I quite like it.
That's what I saw in my backyard,
now why not go over to Jenn's Artist's Playroom
and see what's in everyone elses backyard.
