I know you’re not supposed to have favourites but….

I know you are not supposed to have favourites but I have developed an affinity with this little penguin. I think its so cute and I’m quite loving it.

This is my favourite penguin of the family group so far. I still have many more to paint.

I hope that you have been able to enjoy some of your favourite things today. Cheers from Pjpaintings

8 fairy penguins

I started this painting, loosely inspired by the Goldilocks and Three Bears story, a few weeks ago. It feels like it is going to take a year to finish!!

I really like the colours of blue and beige. I think those two colours sing and are lively together. These two dominant colours also attracted me to try to paint this idea of fairy penguins and a wombat that formed in my head about two years ago.

Twelve more penguins to go!

I hope that everybody’s weekend is travelling along well.

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully next time you visit, there’ll be more penguins to see. Cheers from, Pj Paintings

Gallery duty

It was my first day back at Artefacts Inc Gallery today. It was slow but that meant that I had some time to draw. This is what I drew today at the gallery.

I still need to do more drawing, add paint and then title it.

This is a brooch that is for sale at the gallery made by Caz Francis. The beads are so small and it is such intricate work.

Enjoy your week, stay safe and thank you for visiting, from PJ Paintings

A Wombat Visit

I unexpectedly had to do gallery duty this morning at Artefacts Gallery, Salamanca Place in Hobart, Tasmania.  There were two big cruise ships in so it was busy.

A young lady came into the gallery and quickly honed in on the images from my Sleepy head series.

She pulled out of her knapsack her travel companion, that she never travels without.¬† It was a gorgeous, well-loved wombat! I could not resist giving it a cuddle. It’s sooooo cute!

These arrived in the post today and will be making their debut at Salamanca  Market, stall #30, tomorrow among heaps of other cards, prints, tote bags and pouches. I hope you can drop by to say hello.
