new works in progress and things I love at the moment

re-constructed dress
modern pennys dress from 2 years ago and 1950's skirt
sorrow growing from the chance reading of a line in jane eyre
work in progress
oil pastel ink acrylic and pen
1950's light which I got for 1 euro at last months carboot sale
my parrot skirt really makes me feel jolly !
this fantastic painting made me smile when I spied it last week in a health care unit which I sometimes get the chance to work in.
franks new drawings
.....thank you *thank you* thank you *frank who also bought universe of fables .
last week was an unprecedented high.

☂☁....its got awful wintery here , to think last week I was cycling around in the sun !
anyway here are some things that make me feel good at the moment ....I need strong vibrant patterns, the more the merrier..........like this dress that I am reconstructing adding in two side pieces from a never worn 1950's skirt , so my new dress will have a fuller skirt.
I love the clash of the patterns together :)
I made a red coat on friday which really makes me smile too and will photograph it later.
