Website and writing

Most of you know me from my painting blog - but did you know I have a painting website?
It is a gallery site that shows all of my paintings.
I created it when we first moved into this house, some four years ago.
It has gallery sections for my dog paintings, my alphabet painting and my cowgirl paintings.
If you'd like to see it, the link is here

I also have a reflexology site.
Reflexology is my working life - and its this life which gives the time and ability to paint and to write.
If you'd like to see my reflexology site, its here

Yesterday I was reading some more of Mary Mackie's Creative Editing.
I want to finish the book and absorb the lessons before I start editing my novel.
However, its so difficult not to write, having got used to doing so daily - that a short story was on the cards. That has been completed and it will sit awhile in a drawer, before I look at it again and make any necessary changes.

Its a funny way of working, but apparently a good one, according to the writing tutor.  It makes you detach from the story and then see it clearly when you return to it.

Do you have any odd little rules for your work?
I'd love to hear them.

this painting 'Almost Home' you can find on my gallery site!


  1. Dear Pat - I don't know how you do everything you do. Your art, writing and your reflexology. You are so talented. Will certainly check out your gallery. Take care and have a wonderful day.

  2. I agree with ‘put it in a drawer’ and wait to edit. What seems like Hemingway tonight is sometimes more like {insert name of your least favorite author} in the morning. If it still rings true after a few days/weeks then I think it’s worthwhile. Same goes for painting/sketching…I think we all need some perspective about out work. Just my HO.
