Silk Painting - Tropical Fish

At the start of this year, I had so many plans for what I wanted to do, achieve and experience...and here we are in July already!
But I didn't realise in January, that I'd have to squeeze in another house move, but that box (argh....not boxes again) has been well and truly ticked. Now I can move forward....
I've got a busy week ahead already (what's new?) but I've also something planned for the weekend, which I'm excited about. I'll be telling you later.... ; o
One thing that I've been thinking about is to start painting again. I haven't picked up a paintbrush for about 12 years....wow...where did that time go?
I learnt to silk paint whilst living in Brunei and I've always wanted to carry on....unfortunately the mindset, time, space and just generally my commitment have been lacking. But in this new house there's an actual studio!!!! How cool is that? It's as if its come to get me.....No more excuses.
Initially, I didn't really know what the room was intended for, until I saw the floor plan and there it states quite clearly 'Studio'.
So in the coming weeks (or months) I'll hopefully be able to set up and let you have a peek. Well, depending on how it goes.....It might take me a little while to get back into it.....

During the house move, I found my art photo album and a newspaper article from an Exhibition. Six Ladies exhibited - all expat artists - me being one of them. Looking back at the photo's, they seem to be from another lifetime. I look so fit, healthy and YOUNG!


  1. Hi Nessie, Thank you for visiting my blog. I have to go back and try to remember how I got my picture to show when I comment. When I I figure what out what I did I'll be sure to tell you. Your blog is lovely and I have already enjoyed reading some of your posts. Visiting Australia has been a dream of mine for a long time. Looking forward to many pleasant visits. Susan

  2. Hi Susan,
    I'm so glad you've visited and enjoyed reading my blog. Its always great to get feedback. I seem to learn something new everyday, but there's still so much to learn. I'm having a great time and immense enjoyment which hopefully comes through in the posts.
    I can recommend visiting Australia...its a great place ;)

  3. Hi Nessie. Thanks for commenting on my bookmark. Your tropical fish are beautiful. I'll come back and take a longer look when I have more time.

    1. Hi Lou Anne,
      I thought you might like it...I just thought the bookmark didn't really show you that I use paints to...although not for some time now. I hope to get back to it soon and that was one of the reasons why I joined in with the challenge ~ to stretch myself and whip my mojo into shape! He's been resting far too long ;D
      Thanks for popping by and I hope you enjoy your visit.

  4. Wow, that is so amazing and beautiful!! I love how the fish and some coral extend beyond black border. Thanks for pointing me to your silk work. I have never done it but think it is a beautiful medium!

    1. Hi there,
      I'm so happy you stopped by because I'm quite embarrassed by my little bookmark, so at least you can see some of my other work... especially when I have time.
      I have to admit that painting is vintage now, as I haven't really got back into my silk paints yet. I'm enjoying zentangles but I have to admit I am missing a little splash of colour.
      Silk painting can be so vibrant! So I may revisit again soon.
      Have a great creative week ~ enjoy ;D

    2. Oops forgot to say if you use the search engine in my sidebar under the heading silk painting, I have some other pieces of work you might like to see...Cheers =)


I get so excited to see you here and love to read your thoughts and comments.
I always try to answer each one personally (I think it's only polite)
...♥...I truly appreciate your precious time here so thank you ...♥...
