Cally and Paul

A couple portrait for my sister's 30th birthday, featuring all four of their cats but missing out the bearded dragon (I thought he probably wouldn't venture outside so including him would have been Entirely Unrealistic...)

Sunday Sketchbook #2

Haven't been anywhere exciting this week, so the only things in my sketchbook are the contents of my desk. This is my favourite Badger Balm - very good for dry hands and keeping fingers nails nice.

Beach Wedding

A lovely commission for a couple who had a very intimate beach wedding in Australia. Made me long for sunshine, long evenings and warm sand rather than wind, rain and damp sandbags!

(Wedding portraits make unique gifts and are available via my Etsy shop, just in case anyone's interested...)

Life, lately...

...has looked a lot like this, as Staines decided to remind us that being -on-Thames isn't all about sounding a bit more fancy... Thankfully none has come in the house (yet) but all our furniture is staying upstairs for the present!

Also, happy Valentine's Day to all who might be celebrating it! I hope your day is filled with exactly the amount of romance you'd prefer.

Sunday Sketchbook #1

A little series I'm resurrecting, a weekly post featuring the contents of my sketchbook. This week we have Vince, warming his belly in front of the fire.

February Flowers

February's desktop calendar actually on time! It's available to download via Flickr here if anyone would like to update their wallpaper for a new month.

Although my February Girl has an enormous bunch of beautiful roses, I have a feeling she was very canny and went and bought them for herself on February 15th... far too sensible to hang around waiting for 'romantic' gestures* or to give in to over-priced commercialism!

*Although gestures can, of course, be very nice too.
