This has a poem written on that says:

Daisy Time


See, the grass is full of stars,
Fallen in their brightness;
Hearts they have of shining gold,
Rays of shining whiteness.

Buttercups have honeyed hearts,
Bees they love the clover,
But I love the daisies' dance
All the meadow over.

Blow, O blow, you happy winds,
Singing summer's praises,
Up the field and down the field
A-dancing with the daisies.

Happy Tree in pink & Silver £20

Happy Tree £25

Rose in Blue £15

Inspired by my friends 30th birthday at the Jekyll & Hyde Gin Parlour in Birmingham

What's been happening?

Last month I was asked to create a mural for Fourways Children's Play Centre in Atherstone 

Here is how it came together.......I came up with a few designs then I started work, the mural below is 10ft by 25ft and I used a mixed media of emulsion, spray paint and acrylic paint and varnish to create the mural......

 I painted on 8 characters.....
  Here is the finished product.................this took 50 hours to complete

 Then I started on the party room the play centre wanted 3 murals and a happy birthday banner, princess and knights was the theme......... this took me 30 hours to complete.

This was the write up in the Nuneaton news.........................

I really enjoyed creating these murals and I can't wait for my next mural challenge!!
