Relaxed and friendly. However the Gallery was very busy which meant that it was not always possible to stay together and discuss the painting as a group.

I really enjoyed it. I was initially thinking of cancelling as I didn't fancy 2 hours up Carlton Hill outside. I'm glad the venue changed to the national gallery cafe and hope meetings can continue there. Definitely an indoor space would be best. Robyn was so lovely and had a few suggestions for everyone's work as it took shape. The small group worked well around a table. If the group size grows then not so easy for Robyn to see everyone unless it's a big table.

Title or Location: End of the line
From one of my photos. Acrylic on canvas. Had been a bad day on holiday. Caught the bus back from Kendal to Keswick and stopped off to grab a drink. Wandered around the bus station and walked into the station the end of the line summed up the day. It is a painting that has challenged me, learning a lot on straight edges and shadows. Painting for a couple of years but only a year with acrylic. Still a long way to go. But very happy with the perspective of this which just pulls you in

Title or Location: Flamingo Music Logo
Hello there, I am not a professional graphics designer, but some time ago a friend asked me to come up with an idea for a logo for a music business. I initially drew a design in pencil and ink and then added a few colours with acrylic paint. If I was going to develop the idea further, I would use an electronic graphics design package to reproduce and enhance the logo. It seems that there is quite a range of powerful graphics design software packages and tools available.

Title or Location: Storm over the coast
Being born and brought up in Scotland I almost prefer stormy winter seas. The power of the waves makes you realise how small and humble we are compared to nature. This picture was painted in acrylics using a brush, strip of credit card and a pallette knife. I loved creating the spray on the rocks.

This is a portrait of Monty, one of our family of cats. Unfortunately, Monty passed away late last year, succumbing to an agressive cancer. Monty was an extremely loving, though demanding, cat and will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

After several attempts at deconstructing the real flower, they die overnight, I was able to recreate her beauty out of several different grams of crepe paper. By painting and adding the details. Success. Natures beauty is such an inspiration.

Title or Location: Heart of Tolleymore
I painted this landscape from the photo's taken by my husband on our last visit to Tolleymore Forest. When I finished the painting, I noticed that the rocks seemed to form like a heart with veins running from it. So, I named the painting Heart of Tolleymore.
