More feathers

First, and most importantly, BIG thanks to everyone who's said nice and encouraging things over the past week. I've absolutely needed it and you've made me feel loads better. Please know that I appreciate each and every one of you! xoxo

I managed to finish up two more little birdy paintings last night. It's a funny thing looking at them on the screen. In real life they are much more 'alive' and precious.

It seems the little birds have brought me a bit of luck. I found out last night that my painting of the cheeky robin below won the 'staff choice' award at the Grafton Village Inn painting competition. I'm thrilled to bits.

And now I'm off to clean, cook, bake and wrap for the onslaught of holiday cheer about to burst through my doors...


  1. ...Your paintings are absolutely stunning! And a heartfelt "congratulations" on the most deserving award too! :o)

    ...Enjoy the cleaning, the baking, the wrapping, the cooking, the...wait, now I'm tired. Whew! ;o)

    ..."Merry Christmas!" *<:o{


  2. These Birds are the most charming, exquisite creatures! Especially the Robin!
    So sorry to hear about your job. May the Universe fill the void soon.
    Solstice Blessing to you and yours!

  3. Hi Nichola,

    Your paintings are so beautiful. The birds look so alive and look as if they are ready to take flight. You capture their beauty perfectly!!

    You SOOOO DESERVE that prize!!! Congratulations to you.

    I am so very happy to hear and feel through your posted words that you are in much better spirits!!

    Have a great day!

    Take care,
