A few more arty bits!

This is a piece I did a while back, I was originally designing my sleeve tattoo, then it ended up turning in to a full blown painting! Ah well! I really love green and pink together. Can you see the skull hiding? My mum didn't see it for a few minutes, then shrieked because I had "ruined" a beautiful painting of flowers... she never changes!

This is a little piece I did in memory of my Grandma, I wrote this poem first and wanted to make it a little prettier than just pen on paper! I remember writing this poem, it just came to me so clearly, word for word. It was like the words had been resting there and just surfaced on the day I needed some comfort. So, this is what I came up with! Hope you like it Grandma!

That's all for now, I really should be in bed! Night night! x x x


  1. Ah Fi the picture is fantastic as is the poem - I wouldn't say ruined at all it's obviously how you wanted it to be and I didn't spot the skull at first! What's the background that you've painted on and can't get an idea of the size - so how big is it?

  2. Aww thanks Virginia! It is A3 paper, did them in my sketchpad! I do prefer the wood paintings though, you're kind of limited on a flimsy piece of paper!

  3. Gorgeous both the painting and the poem. My Mum would have been the same - that did make me chuckle!:P

  4. A3 is big - says she who usually works with inchies, ATC's or 4" x 6" postcard size artwork! Great artwork - I had to enlarge the image to spot the spooky skull! Sweet poem for your Grandma - I'd love to think that a grandchild of mine would write a poem for me - not that I have any grandchildren yet but you know what I mean.
