It's the time of year I do label designs for my vineyard client and this year they are releasing some new wines with my illustrations on the labels. I can give you a sneak preview of the new East Coast and Dalesman wine which sound delicious.
The wines are doing very well and picking up plenty of awards these days.
Next in my in tray is a new client which is something completely different, a logo to design for an American space science institute, wish me luck with that one!
In between proper work I've just completed a commission for a crochet flower garland necklace which I've made in some lovely bright cotton threads.
To continue with a flower theme I'm revisiting a craft I used to do many years ago, or rather trying to get back into it for an idea I have and that is the folk art style decorative painting you see on canal boats.
I got my paints out last weekend and started practising the brush strokes. If I can paint a selection of floral motifs then I will try and create a fabric design. I just need some time to spread my paints out and get on with it, it's difficult when you have to work on the kitchen table and pack it away at meal times. Or rather not pack it away and we eat with loads of stuff on the table! Oh the joys of living in a messy confined space.
Hope the weather cheers up for the bank holiday :)
