Percy Robin, the robin not the footballer !

Lately I have spotted this cheeky fat and adorable robin in the garden. Bold as brass he pops down and finished the dogs porridge (I know-spoilt).

Having learnt his routine, I set up the camera to capture the rogue.

Hidden behind the curtain, and patiently waiting, he wouldn’t come!! Realising he was onto me and suspicious of the quiet, I opened the doors and completely ignored him. Worked a charm!!

                                                    Heres a few pics, and some of the work that followed.

         This is the branch he sits on every morning, next to the only apple on the tree!

Badgers, squirrels, and birdies

Been working away here, preparing for some exhibitions, so lots of new stuff, and unusual hangings.

These are my fab new prints on the etsy store, I just love them , they turned out so textural!

Tese are the next batch I hope to turn into prints. I really focused on expanding my Irish Wildlife Range

Don’t Forget to like the facebook page to keep up to date with new prints and offers.

What you can see is the knitted cups and tea cups hanging from the roof!, The next picture is from a 24hour walking gallery where all the pubs/shops/restaurants are hijacked by artists to become art galleries for a week!

Christmas Craft Markets

Participated in a few lovely christmas markets recently.

they take some prep!!

These were from Ballymaloe… http://www.ballymaloe.ie/

Famous culinery house & cookery school.

Fantastic range of stuff & the quality througlout was staggering.

These were from The Celtic Ross in Roscarbery.

Think I did well on the merchandising, and definately felt I established an aestethic that complemented the work.

Love the fairy lights!!

The best buys were the e-reader clip on lights bought in the discount store to draw attention to the pieces, and the laptop cooler stands to raise up the flat pieces.

DUCK, DUCK, DUCK..GOOSE

Finally came up with an idea for a new series… and I love them!!

when I saw I.. I mean I bugged people to inspire me..ha

here is a finished piece

This is “silly billy”

I have also done a girl version.

I think they will be idea gifts for children, christenings, etc. I will do a special price on them to target this market.

These will be made to order so the child’s name can be put on the mount.

here’s a few more I’m working on… roosters and such

Robin – Christmas Series

Working on products for Christmas Markets!

So Lots of little birdies to be posted..

Camera used wasn’t fantastic so detail is a bit fuzzy unfortunately.

Here you can see how the robin was developed.

The stitching and applique parts were already completed and thew robin drawn out lightly in fabric marker on pre-felt.

I lightly layered on oranges and reds onto the breast, and the blue along side it.

i then added white and a taupe colouring to the belly.

I added green and brown for the wings and highlights with taupe and white.

I chose to use dark brown for the legs, the eye holds so much expression , it needed the balance for the quirkyness.

A little fuzzy but here is the final piece.
