Most of the shadows in this life are caused by standing in one’s own sunshine. – Ralph Waldo Emerson. The 2nd of my 5 personal hearts was for Sam my best friend who I met at St Martins School of Art studying Fashion and Textiles. It’s a good believe in yourself message. Samantha !! get…

The next 5 hearts are personal. I’d put it out there and asked if anyone would like me to paint them their own heart, in the run up to my 100th heart. These 5 are all for friends, as at that time I didn’t have many followers who weren’t my friends. Reaching 100 was and…

92nd heart

a drift – just drift a while. This was the first appearance of ‘the red dress girl’ And yes I suppose she is a cartoon version of me, and this was inspired by taking my dad’s little rowing boat out into Crinan harbour which on a flat day (lol) is very calming. Note to self…

Undercurrents. “Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it.

Happy New Year. Here’s 1365th heart. I wanted something joyful and celebrating and 85th wasn’t quite lol. And actually at the moment the bridge looks nothing like this as it’s all wrapped up for maintenance work. Preserve your essence, though I chose not to make it my New Years Day first message, it’s still an…

Well… sorry about this as a New Year’s Eve heart but, as I’m just going in order it’s come up. At the time I was obviously slightly pissed off and upside down this heart reads… irrelevant depths. But as it’s NYE 2017 I think ‘go figure- irrelevant depths’ could be the inspiration to make 2018…
