Inspired to take Turkish Tea

I went to Brisbane yesterday, working on the redesign of my website (very exciting, really, it is!) with my very helpful brother, and his girlfriend, Erin, had this most lovely collection of colourful teacups that I had to photograph...

and so, fuelled by 'Mother' for the 1.5 hour drive home at 10.30pm, I arrived after midnight, still quite wired and unable to sleep. So I painted them. And it felt good.

I have been working on making things with my floral hearts and am so happy with the direction they're going, and now these teacups... it'll be good to have something very new on the new website!  Stay tuned for the big reveal.

I was VERY tempted to join in with Blogtoberfest this year, but have decided, that since this week is the beginning of ONE DAY OF DAYCARE/GRANMA CARE for my little ones (!!!!) that I'd best use that time to actually do work, instead of blogging, which is always the direction my procrastination seems to take these days.

So it'll be lovely to have plenty to read this month, but on the sideline I will be.

Giveaway wise, remember that I'll be drawing a winner for black or white poppies painting this Monday - so leave a comment here if you'd like to be in it! Good luck!


  1. What a lovely direction you're heading in... Lete-ing* it all hang out with a dash of folk art, a tiny pinch of Anna maria and a luscious dollop of yourself. I do believe you have found yet another niche!
    * Pun- tagious

  2. More loveliness! You are on quite a roll :) I'm glad you're focussing on your artwork, don't stop the flow I say. So easy to get distracted by the computer...(which reminds me I must get back to work!)

  3. Beautiful teacups - love the colours & detail! Looking forward to the new-look site :)

  4. I love the look of those teacups. It looks completely different to your other work. I'm amazed at what you can produce.

  5. Just gorgeous Anna :) Are you thinking of creating a series? Very yummy. Enjoy your daycare time :) Kx

  6. *gasp* they're lovely! If there is one thing I love almost as much as pots, it's paintings of pots. Beautiful! Your flower hearts are super cute too :) x

  7. Yes, I think much of my painting time will be dedicated to blogging this month. Like you it is where much of my procrastination time is spent and in October I have the perfect justification for it.

    Love the gorgeous poppy paintings in your giveaway post. They are really lovely.


I hate to admit it, but I do love comments! Please make sure you have email 'enabled' or leave an address, or I can't stay in touch, sorry!
