Hello, and welcome to my blog.

My name is Lavender George and I love to make things. I have been painting, creating and crafting since a small child, firstly from sheer pleasure, and when my children were small, and money was tight, from necessity. Now I hope to make art my main source of income and keep the sewing, crochet and knitting for fun.
I hope you enjoy looking at the things I make, and reading about my inspiration and work in progress.

Sparrows & Holly Bush Painting update

I have now painted in the darker edges of the main holly branches and leaves in a darker green than the base wash, leave the lighter green as highlights.

And added a darker and variegated background behind these branches and leaves:


  1. It's fascinating watching this lovely painting develop, really looking forward to seeing the finished work!

  2. Lovely painting, I've just blogged about sketching some birds in the garden too. It's lovely seeing your painting progress. Your sparrows are adorable.
