The End is Nigh….100 Things Wild Charity Challenge

Well, only nine days to go and 5 wild things to paint.  I have lots of paintings left in my shop…I think I may have flooded my little market corner of my market!!!  But, all is well I will have raised over £400 for Charity which is entirely positive and a wonderful thing to be able to do.

So what next? 100 days is rather too long a challenge for me and I have found it difficult to remain engaged in the idea.  I will not be repeating the how many can I paint challenge enough is enough :).  In many ways I feel that this could be a device I  use to prevent a deepening engagement with my practice…or an enjoyable distraction.

Anyway if you would like to see, share or of course purchase any of my challenge paintings they can be found in my shop and will remain there at least until the 9th December, the last day of the challenge.

If you have followed me, thank you very much for staying with me.

Featured Artist: Suzy Sharpe joins The Compassion Collective

The Compassion Collective Blog

We are extremely pleased to officially introduce our newest artist to join The Compassion Collective. So please welcome Suzy Sharpe…

We were really excited when Suzy got in touch with us via Twitter through her shared support of our favourite charity Compassion in World Farming. She has very generously let us sell gorgeous cards and prints of some of her farm animal pictures and a rather lovely hare too!

Here’s what Suzy says about why she wants to be part of the Compassion Collective:

“I was delighted to be able to donate my images to the Compassion Collective because they support charities that are very close to my heart and can reach a wider audience than I can.  It is important for me to use my work wherever possible to support charities, particularly those which focus on animal welfare and protection.

Poetry of Animals and back to my challenge

I feel like I have been away…but I haven’t, I had a little break from the Challenge whilst getting ready for our exhibition at Morvah Schoolhouse Gallery.

We had poetry readings, music, great company and very interesting conversations at the preview and it seems to have been a very successful exhibition for everyone who took part.

Here are a few photos of the show…
