Then I had a bit of fun experimenting with painting oil. Not oil paints, but actual olive oil. It's so subtle and beautiful when held up to the light. I'm going to test the longevity of the effect as I'd love to list some "oil artwork" on Etsy but want to know a bit more about how it behaves...I'm already pleasantly surprised that once the oil has absorbed into the card, there is no greasy feeling, just pure translucent loveliness.
And then I got back to my collections paintings, and did a collection of twigs, which is now on Etsy. I also made another feather painting as the first one was snapped up just last night! The colours are a bit more blue-y in this one. I hope you like.
I'm now going to sit back and enjoy the banana bread I just made. It smells amazing if I do say so myself. I am clearly all about the baking this week. Next week will see me being all about the dieting. But until then... ;)
