New long last!

As I get ready to fly out the door for what seems like the millionth time today, I thought I'd pop in and share my latest painting. After sending myself almost blind trying to get this finished last night, I realised that:

  1. I cannot paint at night, unless I'm happy for coke-bottle goggles to be a part of my wardrobe in the not-too-distant future.
  2. Rushing a painting like this means blobs of blue paint appear in places they shouldn't. Which leads me to...
  3. Painting at night only ends in tears...see number two above.
**Edited to add: I think I should clarify that, after making a mess of my first attempt, I started from scratch with this one. Just in case you were thinking I was trying to pass off a patched-up, less than top notch painting!**

So after all that, here it is:

"Ginger Jar in Ming"
original watercolour on paper, 210mm x 297mm

At the moment, this one is on hold for a client, otherwise I'll list it on Etsy later today.

I'll try very hard to pop in to all your lovely blogs today as well, I'm having serious withdrawals! 

See you soon,



  1. It's lovely, in my fave colour combo! I find doing artwork at night quite difficult as the colours are different. xx

  2. I love this painting ...crazy about blue and whites! xo

  3. Beautiful!! I love a Ginger jar. Great job blue and white is such a pleasing combo. I'm the opposite I don't get my creative mojo going until night. I'm up quite often until 2 a.m. Great job:)

  4. Kerri, I think it is fabulous!!Love blue & white china!

  5. Well it looks beautiful to me. I wish I could paint pictures. Think I'll stick to furniture. :)

  6. Wow absolutely gorgeous! I too can't do much at night without glasses. (I am not doing the growing old thing well) Mimi xx

  7. How pretty, Kerri! That is an impressive effort to have done it under artificial lighting when you're tired. You must have extraordinary powers of concentration. Bravo you. J x
