The thoughts and works of a caffeine addicted artist!

Battling this virus has resulted in a lot of time spent aching on my sofa. Aching physically and aching to be more active. Not feeling up to much but needing to 'doodle' I decided to create my own comfort zone and, working from imagination, I made myself a comfort quilt. I found this exercise quite soothing and even put the letters of my first name in it to personalise. I then created a quick watercolour scene of a refreshing river surrounded by sunlit foliage, some where calm to clear my head. All cosy in my new quilt with the therapeutic sound of clear running water passing through my mind, I added a little mystery with an enchanted tree, full of magic and stories untold with the bright sun dancing on her back. I reached for the sugar rather than the salt to decorate her with, salt does not come under the heading 'comfort' for me. The sugar has taken residency now the paint has dried and sparkles like fairy dust upon the dark branches...Perfect!
