Hello again, last Monday in November, last day of November..... a windy, mild, dampish start to the week here. Just as you might expect. We have not had much in the way of cold weather but I am certain that is to come, perhaps in a few weeks. Many thanks as always to the artists and photographers featured in this week's mosaic. As always I encourage you to follow links and discover more.

There are just two shop updates left for this year - feels quite extraordinary - and also a challenge: to offer something special (as always). So over the next few weeks I am concentrating on smaller scale works, stitched works and painting, artworks you might just like to add to your collection, or give as a gift.

Next shop update: Wednesday 2nd December at 2pm.

So I am quite busy making new work and hope to share more here and over at nevering. Look out tomorrow for new blog posts. Thanks always for your interest, it really cannot be said enough: much appreciated!

Later in December I'll be sharing some blog posts re: artists and places that inspire me. Just to offer something a little different, for a while.

More soon, have a good start to your week.

new work

holding, together

holding, together - mixed media on linen

I have been painting - working on a further selection of bowl/vessel studies.... these are intriguing for me, one leading to another. They are based on 'real life observation' yet take on a life of their own. It's possible, I am finding, to work on one and then know the next, almost. Yet there has to be time for reflection and each is quite individual. I work on these quietly, often early in the morning. My working space has daylight bulbs and that extra few hours of light really makes a difference, I am finding.... So below are a few more:

'ancient of days - red earth vessel' - mixed media on linen

'pale and red vessel' - mixed media on linen

I have at least one other painting (yet to be photographed). 

Meanwhile, I have just shared another new text/stitch work over at nevering.

Hello, a happy Monday to you - we are moving toward the end of the year and time is ticking by. First real frost this morning! Snowflakes spotted Saturday morning (quickly becoming sleet). It's getting wintry. Thanks always to the artists and photographers featured in this week's mosaic. Please follow links to discover more.

I was stitching this morning wearing layers, over layers. Bit of a chilly start here. It felt appropriate as I was stitching quite a wintry piece. You can read and see over at my writing blog nevering.

It's that time when I think it's a good idea to let you know my last ordering dates for Christmas. These dates are based on the guidance given by Royal Mail and my own plans. So please note the following, if you need to receive an order from me before Christmas (do bear in mind I cannot guarantee deliver if events happen beyond my control eg. we all get snowed in).

Order before these dates and your package should arrive before Christmas:
UK: Saturday 19th December
Central Europe/EU(except Greece): Monday 14th December
US/Canada: Monday 14th December
Australia/New Zealand/ Greece: Wednesday 9th December
rest of the world (eg. Japan): Thursday 3rd December

I will not be posting orders between Tuesday 22nd December and January 3rd. I'll be posting again from January 4th onward. 

There will be new artworks in my shop this week, on Wednesday 25th at 2pm (UK time). After this week there will be two updates in December: Wednesday December 2nd and Wednesday December 9th. After these dates expect to see an update very close to the New Year and further dates in January, to be decided.

Thanks always - I am looking forward to sharing much more with you over the next few weeks. Look out for a post here tomorrow previewing a few new paintings. Have a good start to your week.
