art for ....

.... art's sake.

I've been in a really arty mood today, I think it is something to do with the low winter sun. This time of year when I come down to breakfast I am greeted by the sun reflecting off my dining room light and it makes a beautiful patterned band round the room.

You can see my Ikea clock in the first picture, which I finally got round to decorating this week:

Jack Devin and I made some art this afternoon, based on the work of Jackson Pollock, one of my favourite artists. JD wanted some canvas blocks to go with his newly decorated room - these were such good fun to make and I think they look great (although I think they are going to take forever to dry!!):

I've spent the afternoon in my craft room watching Diagnosis Murder and making notebooks - it doesn't get too much better than that!!

The canvas blocks are lovely! And you are sooooo right, there is absolutely NOTHING better than crafting and watching Diagnosis Murder. Dick Van Dyke rocks x x x
