Busylizzie Art sharing Exhibition at Taunton Library from Monday March 4th…

The last four weeks have seen a great flurry of inspired creating at Busylizzie “HQ” following two separate weeks spent in the French Alpes. It began with observation of tracks and ridges formed in the snows surface seen from above via chairlifts in Valmeinier and Valloire then was fuelled by a second week of stunning […]

Cabbages and colours…

October, Autumn, season of mists and mellow fruitfulness…and pink tinged leafed cabbage-style flowers… Having been given a beautiful bouquet of pink/green cabbage flowers with pungent pink asiatic lilies as a birthday gift, it seemed a sin to just arrange them in a vase, and admire them in passing…the colours, the shapes, the strength of stalk […]

…and the excitement is nearing its peak!

When, as the artist, you have designed the detail of the ‘look’ for a wedding right from the first ‘Save-the-date’ down to the last announcement board and jar of flowers, the anticipation in the preceding week is almost as heightened as that of the Bride and Groom themselves. When the artist is also the Groom’s […]

Seascape…

Garden Exploration…

A new house – a new garden! Fun time spent one sunny, Sunday evening not long after moving into our beautiful pre 1841 listed town house… I stood in front of a canvas 1m x .5m armed with acrylic paint, ink, emulsion, water, brushes, cloths and sponges and tried to recreate the feel of this […]

Busylizzie Art bringing fun to an outside space…

Artist Liz, of Busylizzie Art has designed a huge mural to fill the space, consisting of a large tree in […]

Art for arts sake…

Busylizzie Art has gone back to class – Friday art class at CiCCiC Taunton to be precise! What a pleasure it is to explore objects and materials from a different perspective than usual.  Who knew bubble wrap would capture the imagination in such a way… Circles inspired further choices of  objects to look closely at […]
