Friday coffee break

I have had a good week of work, with lots of different paintings and thoughts on the go. Here is one of my finished canvasses Rainclouds And Sunshine

thanks to Saatchi Art for selling my Tapestry painting this week...very pleased to be sending it off the The States. It is such a thrill to think of artwork travelling the Atlantic  :)

I hope that you are looking foward to a fun weekend, we are joining some friends on Saturday evening to help celebrate a landmark birthday.....discretion forbids me spilling the beans! I am making the cake, which is the sort of task I love.

I have decided on Nigella Lawson's gorgeous flourless chocolate almond cake. it is most delicious and definitely worth the planning ahead time needed to boil oranges (not the sort of thing I do in my kitchen very often it must be said).

This photo comes from a lady named Courtney on Pinterest, it is made using hazlenut flour, and looks pretty good too.

Talking of gorgeous things I have been spending time with a childhood friend and inspiration this week. The amazing illustrator Brian Wildsmith has definitely influenced me on a deep level. His colours!!

 Take a look below at a couple of his works, and follow this link to a major fan on Pinterest

"What the Moon Saw" written & illustrated by Brian Wildsmith. Oxford University Press, 1987.
