Being with the ones we love, creating happy experiences, atmosphere and a homely environment, who doesn't love a bit of Hygge! Although Christmas has come and gone, I am still working on my Christmas portfolio along with a whole host of other lovely peeps led by Victoria Johnson. Yup, I signed up for a second round of Create Christmas and week 1 was all about Christmas Hygge. Perfect while the temperatures outside are on the minus scale, the wind is howling and the rain is unrelenting. So, here's my take on a folk design with a Swedish Dala Horse.
As 2017 begins to draw to a close, it's a good time to reflect... preferably in front of a log fire with plenty of mulled wine!
It's not been the most creatively productive year for me, as family life has been so demanding. But, I do feel like I've channelled my energy into the right places. This December though, I've found myself happily back in the flow of painting and have spent most of my studio time concentrating on Christmas designs. I signed up with Victoria Johnson at http://www.victoriajohnsondesign.com to take her course in 'Creating Christmas' which has been thoroughly enlightening and inspirational in equal measures. She's running a second course starting on 15th January which I recommend signing up for!
So I leave you below with a series of my Christmas paintings and wish you all a very merry festive season!
