Random ramblings from the cluttered brain of a Brit ex-pat North Devonian trying to keep cool in the steamy summers and warm in the frosty winters of The Great White North.

Last year I signed up for a course in acrylics... I thought splashing paint on canvas would be fun. And it is! It's something I haven't tried since I left high school. Ann will probably recognise this scene.
I'm not very good at it. In fact, I haven't really finished anything to my own satisfaction. Still experimenting. But I'm finding out that I like the bright colours and using different textures. This one includes paper from my shredder, strips of newspaper and a bicycle cut out of Zoomer magazine.
I've signed up for a couple more courses starting in April.
I don't think I'll ever be invited to exhibit at the National Gallery, but I'm having fun.
