Changes are a Foot.


Autumn is well and truly here.

Autumn and the forthcoming run up to my favourite time of year

 i e Christmas has raised my spirits.

After suffering a spell of artists block (the equivelant to writers block)

I have been spur'd on to make those changes I have mentioned in previous posts.

I have changed my profile name from Fuzzie Fingers to Carol Rigby and changed my profile picture.

This is due to the fact that this blog title does not reflect the work I am creating now so I have created

 a new blog with the title Pencil, Pastel and Paint.

 I know this will result in problems connecting with some blogger friends but will do my best to 

give out as much info as possible to guide you in the right direction if you wish to continue to follow

 my art.

As well as a new blog I have also ventured onto Facebook and now have a Facebook page also 

named Pencil, Pastel and Paint.

If you are on Facebook I would love it if you would connect with me by  'Liking' my page

I am in the process of getting to grips with the workings of Facebook and hope to be able to put a

 badge up on my blogs to link to my Facebook page when I learn how.

Wish me Luck.

Playing Catch Up


It's been a while since I was last here.

While I have been away I have not been spending a lot of time on my art.

Life sometimes get's in the way as we all know.

However I do have some things to share.

Firstly, my completed canvas from my last post.

acrylics & oil pastel on canvas

I decided to paint her dress in acrylic and oil pastel rather than collage although the neckline is made

 up of my hand painted papers.

I also made a little colouring book for my daughter.

She is in her 30's but still a little girl at heart which is reflected in the glitzy cover.

During my 'time out' I spent a few days in Dumfries & Galloway in Scotland.

I love this photo I captured of birds outside the cottage window.

We had a lovely few days there.

I hope to have some more things to share soon.

A Sneak Peak


This morning I picked up a box canvas that I started a while ago and put aside.

I wanted to make her face very pale but I kept looking at it and decided that she needed some colour to her skin tone.

She is in oil pastel and this is the biggest work in pastel that I have done to date measuring
 30cm x 40cm

I am itching to get out my papers and do her dress in collage but I'm not sure whether it will work.

 Or another idea is to do a coloured  acrylic glaze and scratch a pattern into it which is a technique I have done in the past on a couple of my smaller pieces.

Take Two


This is a follow up post to yesterday.

Notice anything different ?

She was too young for grey hair.
