New Painting


This is my last black and white painting for a while...just a wee one. After this no more exhibitions till August which in a way will be a relief becasue I've done an awful lot in the last six months or so! Time to focus on something else - illustrations or perfume, or writing! I'm currently busy with a portrait of two children which I will post eventually, so I'll have to think of something else to keep me busy after that...

The title of this painting is Inland From Crawl Harbour I and II, and it is exactly what it says. I enjoy the electrial wires especially.


My First Perfume


This is my first finished, wearable perfume! As yet unnamed...its warm and fruity, blended in baobab oil. Its has topnotes of sweet orange and grapefruit and the heart is the very South African buchu. It sits on a warm base of oakmoss, sandalwood and labdanum... The baobab oil makes the perfume look very yellow and I think it looks beautiful....
