I believe this award was created in support of Bella Sinclair whose husband sadly passed away suddenly in June. It recognises the amazing artwork, inspiration and friendship Bella has shown through her wonderful blogging.
I have long followed Bellas blog and so was doubly touched to receive this award from the lovely Brigitte. Forgive me for not passing it on (as those that I would pass this onto have largely been covered by other bloggers). However I do want to display this in support of Bella and the importance of the care and inspiration this online world can provide artists at all levels x
I found a request for people to draw a bear in memory of the death of a young husband and father - Mikka - via Kathy Hares wonderful blog. Seemed like an appropriate entry for this weeks IF as Mikka's family will truely had to adapt to a new life after this terrible loss.
Here is the little bear I've sent, but you must see Kathys beautiful illustration and maybe send your own...
Well, I've taken my first steps towards online selling via Etsy. Small beginnings, I'm starting with note cards but hope to sell a few bits and add to the range (along with improving my dodgy photography!). All very exiting, hope you'll check it out!
