Are you in The Loop?

The Loop is an online community for creative professionals to connect with each other, I've just updated my portfolio over on their site.  The thumbnail in the top left of the above photo is of my recently completed painting 'Olivia and Her Octopus', I created it for this months Monthly Painters Challenge which was revealed earlier in the week. 

In other news, this week I started a Thursday blog party for sharing palettes and paints, the linky will be open over the weekend and early next week if you would like to share, there is still time. Find out more here:

Please head on over and say Hi

participating in these parties!


  1. Hi how are you?

    I was looking through your blog, and I found it interesting, and inspiring to me, so I thought why not post a comment.

    I have a blog also obviously and would like to invite you to become my blog friend...

    I mostly post about the South West experience through the perspective of personal writings, and my art.

    Maybe you can become my friend, and follow, and I can also follow you, if that is okay.

    Well I hope to hear from you soon… :)

  12. I love this painting - so affectionate! Nice to think of having 8 arms to hug with. This picture has an awful lot more warmth than Leonardo's "Lady with an Ermine." Keep up the good work! This has put a nice smile on my face on a Friday morning when I've got a sore throat and no voice!!!
