I have these tow ladies wo come to my house for art tuition..they used to come to a daytime class at a school, but it was axed!
Anyway the two of them( sometimes 3) come to my studio in my house every Monday morning.
I set up a still life for them to do, it’s taken them 4 weeks and now today they finished.
They both did paintings of my garden a while back in another blog.
So here they are :))

THis is the still-life I set up for them..looks a bit like an altar or minister’s desk lol

Marion and Moira discussing their work

The work! We always work in a mess lol :)

Your pupils look like good fun, Pixi, and although you won't take the credit, you are a good teacher, I'm sure they wouldn't have got this far without your input! Is this the cute outfit? Matalan are brill for a bargain!! You're lookin' fab, girly!!

17 Oct, 2011

 

Yes they are Libet. They are the aftermath of a class I used to take on a Monday at a school jsut down the road from me which stopped all its community use classes earlier this year(govt bloody cutbacks!) Some of them come to my evening classes now, but these two dont like to go out at night especially in winter..neither do I but its my work! lol
Anyway they are a laugh and that cant be bad!
Yeah that's the outfit lol..love Matalan and PRimark! Bout the only shops I can afford to go to! lol thanks :)))x
