Hello everyone! Hope everyone is fit and well! Before I go on, if you didn’t already know, go onto my website and enter your email for a chance to win a quarterly draw of a free painting! Yes free! Go to

Dee During of Victoria was last months winner so congratulations 🥳 again Dee. I hope you get much enjoyment from it.

I have been utilising all my 3mm MDF boards and making lots of seascapes. The sea is hard to paint. You have to get the right colours and the foam has to look like foam. I wonder if there is a knack to it? Anyway I will press on. You can view them at my shop on my website. I am going to continue painting seascapes and I’m going to do quite a few of them and put them up for auction on ebay. This would be a great opportunity for you to put in a bid and you could get a piece at a very low price! I’ll let you know in my next blog whether I have them up and running. Presently I have paintings up for a Buy it Now or Put in an Offer. This is another way you can get discounts! Another way is to buy one painting and then get a voucher for the next painting you buy with a big 25% off!! Great value here guys!

I am not a portrait artist but at the moment I have two portrait paintings on the go. One is a little female toddler and the other an older gentleman. I have to try and get the chubbiness of the cheeks of the little girl. I’m learning that I should render smooth complexion for the girl and a more harsher complexion for the older gentleman. I will see how it goes. If it works out, I’m going to enter the male portrait into the Yarram Courthouse Archie’s portrait comp. It’s a miniature show taking off the Archibald Prize that is in Melbourne. Wonderful work is shown there that’s for sure!

Have I mentioned to hop onto my website and sign up for your chance to win a painting? Hahaha. It’s one click into my website and right on the front page you enter your email then hit send. That’s it! Easy peasy. You will get updates, prizes and a small monthly newsletter to keep you informed. Plus don’t forget the quarterly draw! A great way to get some art for FREE!!

I’m going to sign off for now, so I’ll see you in the next blog with more updates.

Cheers for now, Margie 💗
