Bertie ... The Second Attempt!

Ooh, I did relish letting off steam in my last post and thoroughly enjoyed reading your comments :-D!  All I'll say for now is that a very plain and pitiful woman at school has decided to show her true colours (predominantly green).  She rounded on me unprovoked and I think, was quite unprepared for my backlash.  Anyway, all will become apparent a little later this week.  Needless to say, I don't give a s*** about her and I'm so excited about Wednesday I could jump up and down and screech with joy!!! ;-)

I heartily recommend having a chunter on your blog!  Seriously, normally I would have gone to bed all churned up and livid but by letting it out on my blog I got closure!  It was brilliant!!!

Back to today, I was kicking my heels a bit so Blondie daughter and I decided to have a lovely painty afternoon ...

I had another go at painting Bertie, this time from a photograph ...

Remember, keep it loose and free ...

So I did.  Room for a little improvement but I'm so much happier with this one.

Blondie daughter had a go too ...

Pretty damn good for an 8 year old I say!

Enjoy your weekend lovelies.



  1. Hi Heather
    I have to say the last painting of your dog is fab. Great expression in the eyes... and your second attempt isn't bad either! ; )

    The looser the better, and good for you for letting off some steam. I've been doing just that all evening after a rather annoying day at work!

  2. Lovely paintings, ladies!
    I love having a good rant via my blog, it really helps to let of steam.

  3. Hi Heather, I really admire your attitude and get so much strength from comments I have recieved lately. I dont normally vent or divulge like I did but I am so glad I did, I would probably still be wallowing if I had'nt! Your art work is amazing, if I attempted a portrait of miss Jazz she would end up pink rather than a black spaniel!
    Blondies work is amazing 10 out of 10!
