NEVER too late to learn NEW TRICKS!

Since the change over from Flowers and gifts of Moss Industry to the NEW  'MOSS GROTTO' I've been overwhelmed by the interest in my paintings instore.
With a fresh re-launch of interiors and homewares I've been inspired to paint again!
Some pieces sit at home unfinished or on hold....but the paint is out and the canvases are ready to go.

My Mother Libby who works at Moss Grotto on Sundays has a shy hidden talent for oils and has been off the brushes for too long! Amazingly talented in any creative venture she takes on I decided to bite the bullet and enroll us in a painting course.Starting Monday in Geelong at the Arts Society we both hope to be brave and build our confidence in all things involving paint and brushes.Should be fun!
The pieces below are some I still have and some sold long ago.When I look at them it's nice to remember where I was at in my life.All of them hold a memory for me which is always so nice....
 This portrait above is my Mum.(1999)

 This paint colour of the girls changed so many times.The pink and red came together after many layers of paint. (SOLD) Started(2002) Completed (2006)

Keep an eye out for new works that will slowly work their way into Moss Grotto over the coming months.
