Or B.P., as I often call it. There was painting!

I have included a few of my works of art here in this post. If you like what you see in this post, you can see more of my work here!

What do you think of my paintings? What is your favourite creative medium to work in, if you have one? I am still team pottery all the way, but painting was my gateway drug to creativity!

  1. All of the paintings are so colourful, I love it! And I love how all the colours match with one another to create a story ๐Ÿ™‚ You have an amazing talent!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! Your creativity in the kitchen is wonderous! Those around you are lucky to have all that great food!

  2. I hope you havenโ€™t given it up – these images are very evocative and compelling. I can see the relationship to pottery, too. My creative outlets are many; like @Irene above, in the kitchen and garden, but also with the camera and hopefully, I can tie it all together with words, sometimes free verse, sometimes haiku and sometimes just a regular blog post. Thank you for visiting my blog, because thatโ€™s how I found you. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Thanks so much for your kind words Kim! Pottery has been my focus, but the desire to paint still bubbles up to the surface. I also love to garden, preserve, make wine etc! I really loved seeing the pictures and reading about Paris! I have not been there in a long time!
