Lovey-Dovey, Lovey-Dovey...

Lovey-Dovey all the ti-ime...oo-ee baby I'll sure show you a good time...

Well actually I wont but I will show you my latest picture

Anyroad...ooo I've had a right old time of it lately, some good; new hounddog pendants have hitched their way to Glasgow and will be appearing at the forever fablus MisoFunky real soon....and some pants; vat/accounts/day job brain spoiling bleurgh (apologies to my bloggy chums as I've been a bit slipshod with my visits lately!); but I did eventually find the time to sit in the sunshine for the 2mins we had of it (damn you British summertime!) with the brushes n pointy sticks and do my stitchy thang!

So with flourish n a TAADAAA!!

Loveydoveythankyouverymuch!




I started out thinking "I'm gunna go all soft n gentle; muted palette mmm, peace, love n harmoniousy", but then I thought "Stuff that for a game of cowboys!"



So, sloshy freestylee watercolour dove all flappy in the wind. Haven't really painted the dove as such, more painted around it! I was going to be a bit more precise on the eye, beak and tootsies but I'm kind of digging the abstract vibe without it

I've festooned him with a big ole flock of colourful shiney chums all a-wheeling and a-whirling to keep him company



It's all going a bit Alfred Hitchcock!



Some have shot off the edges and one got a bit too close to the front of the canvas so all you can see is a big lump of wing...bit like having your thumb over the viewfinder :0)



Hope you like it!
Heading for an Etsy shop near you!

Tap.Tap.Tap...waiting patiently in the wings (snigger)...is this wee fella:



...for a change I know where I'm going with one so stay tuned cos he'll be appearing real soon

Thanks for droppin' by! x:)

One day, soon, I am going to be the purchaser of one of your ever lovely creations! Probably not for a few months, but I am going to do this!
I may be a mimilove whore, but I am proud of it! lol

Happy days,

Just let me say, thank you for being the only person paying any attention to me. I'm feeling like a middle-school outcast. That seems to happen a lot in the blog world.
