Sophy higher than the Moon

Will she fall? Will the trapeze snap? How far is the floor? We can't see it. Is there a safety net? I don't know...life seems precarious sometimes.

I love your art and am so glad that that shop wanted your cards. It`s so original that I`m positive there will be more wanting them. All a matter of finding the shops. Have you tried London? I bet they would want them in some of their exclusive shops. And there`s so many pretty shops around England that they would be perfect in. Sure would love some myself. Maybe when I have some extra money.

Oh, pg - I'm so glad I've found you again - I love your art. Are you not on the purplecoo site any more or have I just missed you? Just wanted to comment that I particularly liked the papercut of the silhouette of what looks like a large lady singing with a bird in her hand. Do you have a card of it? If so, can you let me know how to get hold of same? I have a friend who's 40th birthday is next month and she's having a karaoke party (yes, I know. Not sure I'll be singing), and I thought that would be such an appropriate, celebratory image for the same.
By the way, there are a couple of independent card shops in Malmesbury (That New Shop and Workbox) - have you tried those? (she asked hopefully!)

I love this, the rabbits expression is great and I love the background. Do you plan out your backgrounds or do they happen more organically?

Another lovely image, Gretel.

This is so beautifully done! But it leaves me very anxious about poor Sophy......

Joy said...

This is really lovely, but I'm a tad worried about that frayed rope.

Lovely!

Oh I do so envy you being able to paint and be so creative.

I love your art too, wished your cards were for sale down here, now there's an idea ? the French simply do not have the range of cards that the English do and I think yours are way ahead of many.

I really love your pictures.

There is no safety net, if you want to fly.

I'm tickled to see you painting. And posting. :-)

Sell lots and lots!

gilfling said...

Oh she is adorable!! Just beautiful. That is wonderful that you have a new outlet for your cards - the shop certainly looks as if the owner appreciates beautiful work. I think the toystore lost out for sure!

Hello,
Just to answer your question re. the Elderberry Rob. Apparently it will keep for up to 3 years but we've never managed that it really is good whether or not you have a cold.
Someone once told me that in Victorian times you could buy a cup of it from street vendors.

Sophy is a lovely rabbit, Captain Rupert would like to offer his paw and help her down to safety and share eating all the flowers on my newly planted chrysanthemum!

I do love your work, I shall look forward to seeing your Christmas Collection.

Hi Gretel,

Loving the new piccy!
Not loving the man from Chipping Norton.
I haven't been to Ross for years, used to go to college in Hereford nearby. Actually, Hereford has lots of little gifty shops and galleries, might be worth a pootle 'round there some day :0)

Merisi said...

So lovely, everything really. Imagine this in a child's room, so many details to look at and sink into before falling asleep. :-)
