If you’ve been a regular follower of my blog for a while you probably thought that I’d dropped off the face of the earth! Not quite, just little Munchkin has been taking up a lot of my time and I haven’t been able to set aside many hours for creativity lately. I’m wondering whether I should change this to an art/mummy blog?! Then I may have more to write about! What do you think?

Anyway, I have had a few little projects bubbling along over the past month. One of them is some artwork for our lounge. It’s funny, but we don’t actually have much of my artwork in our house. I always seem to be doing pieces for other people but forget about our own house. We bought a couple of frames a while ago, with the intention that I would create something to fill them. I decided to make something very quick as I knew that otherwise I’d probably start an ambitious project and not finish it.

Here’s the result, a colourful selection of translucent overlapping circles! We’re so pleased with it that I’m thinking of doing a similar one for our bedroom.

Certainly brightens up an otherwise very plain wall in our lounge!


I forgot to take a photo before I framed it so there’s a bit of glare from the glass, but here’s a close up.

I’m sharing this post on the following blogs: Handmade Harbour, Paint Party Friday and Blue Chair Diary Illustrations!


love how this watercolor came out and it looks great framed and hanging on your wall. Beautiful colors and cool how the overlapping circles make new color mixes.

Your artwork for your lounge is beautiful, Clare! Love it! I’m currently in the midst of creating some abstract pieces for our walls after a change in colour scheme. 🙂

I’m sure your hands have been full with your newborn. Awww I can only imagine my step-daughter who has twins and an triple amputee husband! oy! beautiful painting and PERFECT for that spot. 🙂 So happy to see you back on here again. xx
