Aw...Aleks...what a brilliant likeness, and so much love in it! Love the doggy too. Janey, you could definitely sell your paintings...maybe even start doing portraits for commission!

Wow Janey, these are brilliant! The lovely dog is just fantastic . . . have an exhibition, you must. You could make your fortune :)

Thanks Karen! I am pleased with the way it came to life...that would be my dream...portraits of children. A friend's granddaughter came out quite well too...I just love doing them, almost as much as gardening..ha ha!
It's been very cold, blustery and wet today...worse tomorrow... How are you doing in Scotland? Another month and you'll be a busy bee with your open day to look forward to...xx

Garden when it's dry; paint when it's cold and wet!

Agree your paintings would sell.

Ooh Sheila...thank you so much, you know what it's like, you're your own worst critic, really enjoy it though, like you do, especially to get you through the winter months..xx

We had a decent enough day today once the rain stopped Janey. I managed a couple of hours outside after a trip to the GC with Rachel. The sun came out and it was so lovely....it made me feel like Spring isn't too far away now. I love this time of year when you get a good day...its so exciting to see the new shoots coming out of the ground.

I agree with every comment so far. You are so talented and have a lovely, gentle approach to your subjects. I like the old brick wall and the watering can......reminds me of home!!

I do and I will Eirlys....to paint flowers would be the best of both worlds! Thank you for your encouragement...

A better day than ours Karen, how is Rachel's garden doing? A brighter day here....blue sky! Taking Lottie for a long run...she is champing at the bit...:))

Thank you very much Marjorie's..:)

Wow Janey, I agree with all the above,they are just beautiful,clever girl.

Just beautiful work, Janey!

Well Janey, its doing very well. She has snowdrops that she planted last year, and today we dug out three huge phlox which were far too big for her narrow borders, and planted a rose, a jasmine and an evergreen clematis. So it looks good now. Bare, but ready for the spring. I don’t know how much longer we will have her....I think she will be moving down to the south of England in a year or so. But time will tell. Her BF is a Helicopter Engineer in REME. And most of the helicopters are down south...but he may have to travel about a lot yet. But I think she will go with him soon. So I am just helping her keep it neat and tidy.

I have looked through all your lovely paintings,over and over again,Janey,and I am amazed you haven't taken your talent further..they are all amazing,with such attention to detail ..such expression in the eyes of the portraits too..you really should market some,or/and have an exhibition....Your 'hidden 'talent should no longer be hidden..go for it girl :o) x

11 Feb, 2018

 

Thanks so much girls, wonderful comments and encouragement! i really would like to try and take it further
and so I'm going to do as you say Sandra....Go for it!! Ha ha...xx

You've been a busy bee Karen, you seem to spend so much time out there when the weather is at its coldest and worst...you must now be a hardy Scot!
They grow up and grow away...mmm.....you're going to miss her, but a happy daughter means a happy Mum...and holidays down south!!...:))
