woyww - a new canvas


Not a lot of detail showing in this photo but this is my desk very early Wednesday morning.  I have just finished one project and ready to start another.  Yes, it is dark and very late.... seems to be the only time I create.

The canvas will be for the "Hospitals Got Talent" exhibition to be held at the end of the year.  A lovely exhibition that showcases all the amazing staff who spend their spare time creatively.  I entered a photograph (red bridge in Hanoi) a few years ago and this year I will do a mixed media piece.

The only other thing on my desk is a set of ATC's for the paperarts swap.    All finished and ready to be posted next week.  Quite chuffed with myself.... keeping up with the calendar journal, finished the ATC swap and working on the canvas.  I almost think I have time to spare ... until I remember I should sleep.


Then up bright and early to see the amazing "sculptures by the sea".  A few pics of my favourites.


 Now back to woyww site to see even more amazing creations.

  7. I personally think those beach sculptures are more fabulous than any desk we might see today. Your canvas sounds like it's for a noble cause. Sounds like something nice that you would participate in, too. Happy WOYWW from #4.

  14. Those sculptures are great fun - it's important to show that art isn't stuffy and boring!
    On your desk shot, I like the green picture with the female head at the back. Did you do that? It's really striking :)

    Di said it was simply amazing! they then went off to the ballet that evening, it was equally wonderful too!
    Well, back to check on post before but had to comment on these in Sydney, they are getting better every year! Shaz in oz.x
