Raggedy Rosie...

On the Easel......

An artist need never be short of inspiration. You only have to look round your home..There is always something to paint.

Today I wanted to paint something different ..I have a Teddy started already, but Rosie captured my eye as I  walked through the room...She has a lovely bright pretty dress and orangey blonde hair, just right for painting on a bright sunny day...


Rosie is a Rag Doll that Dave bought me in Ireland. I sat her on the garden bench to capture the sunlight. Fortunately i took some photos to work from as the sun went in...
