Pearls for the Girls

Twins
Pure Aussie Wool Series
38cm x 28.5cm
This Pure Aussie Wool addition was just a joy to create. I did take my time in finishing as I had a couple of other subjects on the go too so that I did not feel my destiny was to be a sheep fanatic (which of course I am at the moment!). I added the Pearls as a final finishing touch using a little bit of pearlescent ink and a tiny bit of naples yellow watercolour. I knew they would be a perfect addition to the lovely knitted twin sets these twins are wearing.
 Have spent all of yesterday building up a new computer as my study laptop where I do most of my blog and webwork gave all the signs of blowing up, luckily I had a day old backup of everything important but most of the time was taking in how to get around windows 8 which I have never used before.
I went to bed thinking I must have lost the computer zavvy  I am known for due to my now creative life but after getting up refreshed this morning I am getting around the new computer OK. I have a windows 7 in my studio and an Ipad when I am out and about so having to jostle between the three operating systems when my head is full of art will be another challenge.
New exhibition opens this afternoon at Art@Goolwa and I am pleased to say that one of mine has already sold - Pure Aussie Wool series Bale 131.
