About Me

My photo
Hi I'm Clare, I live in the South West of England in the seaside town of Torquay. I adore playing with inks, paints and generally getting messy. It is the calm place which fits in between my hectic life whilst working as a teaching assistant, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

A Hearty Home

Good morning all.  I did say that I would be blogging a little more frequently!  Being on holiday seems to open my creative floodgates and once it's open I find it hard to stop.  At the moment I am wishing everyday were a holiday.

I'm here today to share with you a canvas which I completed yesterday.  

I used Dina Wakely Heavy body acrylics along with a couple of stencils.

I am hoping for another couple of crafty days before I go back to work next week.  I will stop by and show you what I have been up to X X X 


  1. Stunning canvas, love the scene and great colours. Hugs Jennifer xx

  2. adorable ! Such a clever project !

  3. Love your textures and colors. You balance the structure of the drawing so nicely with the loose paint and stenciling. I am also having an art holiday this week! 😊

  4. Wow what a gorgeous canvas, love the stenciling and the lovely houses.
