This morning

This morning met and followed the lovely Elise at Florescence

How it happened: Just over two years ago she made the mothers of the bride and groom flowers for my wedding. She did an amazing job and we kept in contact. I little while ago I asked her if I could follow her around and photograph her, and today it finally happened! Here is a little taste of some of the gorgeous images from the flower markets and her workshop. 

If you are getting married, or having an event, check out her website http://www.florescence.org

Time to paint

This week I  spent two mornings taking part in an art class’s run by the incredibly talented and generous Fiona Graham Mackay

I have not sat down and done an oil painting since I took my A levels (in 1998…) and was surprised by how successful it was, and how much I enjoyed it! 
I feel the reasons I have shied away from oils are time, money and practicality. I intend to explore this beautiful and generous material further!
Everyone go and do an art course, meet up with a friend or three, join a group, whatever you want, but get out there and do some painting, just because it’s good for your soul. 
These are my little paintings, whilst there is allot of space for improvement, I am immensely proud of taking the time for myself, that I haven’t forgotten everything I was taught, and for trying something different. Have a wonderful weekend. Sophie xxx
