WOYWW #176

Morning folks
It's blowing a gale round here this morning, dark and miserable too, however, I am alive and blessed so that is enough reason to be happy today! I hope you are all well. It is, of course, Julia day today, where we all toodle off to Stamping Ground to wander the smorgasboard of desk delights that is WOYWW.
Here is mine; excuse the lousy pics, it's still pretty dark in there!

 So, looking from my chair, this is how I left it last night, lots left to dry. Lets start at the other end.....
 Two different canvasses I'm playing with
 I have a plan for this one, it's taking shape slowly though.
 Then, just a bit more light hearted is this little tag, Dylusioned masked and just waiting to finish.
 Then, painting in my art book using up some left over paint
And lastly, on my inspiration wall, you can see I've made my first Christmas tag! So there's my place this week. I hope that you are all having a good and creative one too!

I love your inspiration wall. The South Easter is pumping here today too...bit of a black one with clouds piled up against the back of the mountain.

So many interesting art ideas on one desk. I am very fond of 3 dimensional art.
Do show when all is complete.

Really like the look of your Christmas tag, I so want that die... Love the skeleton canvas too, very dark, but for some reason I quite like skeletons. Your inspiration wall is coming along nicely Neil. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #41

Hi Neil,

I always enjoy stopping by to see what you're up to.

It's funny that here in New Mexico the wind is blowing quite fiercely too.

You inspire me to try new things -- now I just have to do it!!!

Happy WOYWW
Hugs, Kay #18

Wow, that looks a bit scary to be sharing your crafty space with. The rain soon blew away here to be replaced by lovely sunshine. Hope you are sharing it too now.

Love the way you are working on a wide variety of projects- makes for a really interesting peek! Chris109

Brenda Brown said...

Great to see the different styles of art you are creating Neil and all looking scrummy. I love the 3d canvases, such interesting forms and shapes on them. Thanks for your lovely comment about my grandaughter, I had more positive news again tonight so I am just praying she has turned the corner and there won't be any more backward steps.
Thanks for sharing your creative space. Happy WOYWW and have a great end to the week.

Julia Dunnit said...

Well I have to say I'm not creating canvas excavations, but I am working a little towards Christmas!!! I can only wonder at your plan. And your skills, amazing stuff Neil. Hope the gloomy day improved."it did here, I hope your desk enjoyed the sunlight too!

Nicky said...

Love all the work you doing and your tags on your inspirational wall - have a great week

Shoshi said...

Some great art here, Neil - and on your subsequent post, too.

Thanks for your nice comment - things are still very difficult and it could go on for ages - every visit leaves me physically and emotionally exhausted, particularly visiting Mum as she's being quite difficult. My hubby is very tired too. At least Dad's in the right place.

As you will see, I managed to sneak in at the end of WOYWW this week - first time for ages!! I've been working on an art journal page in my new little book - so glad you like the book. It's a little gem!

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi

Maybe I am a little weird, but dark dreary weather is my favorite. I love the rain, the sound of the winds and the leaves rustling! It makes me want to crawl into my craft room and create! Everyone else seems to crave sunshine...maybe I'm a vampire? lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Lots of variety here. Your creativity is always unique. Weather here turned blustery also..down right crispy cold and never complaining about the mist, or swales of heavy rain. We need LOTS more.
Enjoy your week, times a tickin..

Can't wait to see how the canvas pieces turn out! Love the inspiration wall! Nan 117
