Sunset Revamp

Hey all, post move I’m going to sunset this blog and kick off a new one that is primarily around art. Thanks to everyone who spent the time over the years visiting my wee site.



At the moment we are un crazy house hunting times with an off accepted but conditions needing to be met.

The crazy running around has drained me of any creative spark for now so blog will be quiet for a bit.

Hugs Scott

Quiet Time

Hi All,

After the May painting I ran out of canvas so haven’t been able to restock yet. We are mid house hunting so its been total lock down on expenses here. Will return to normal painting next week in theory!




Final Wrapup

Sorry all, its been a little hectic here again, house, kids, etc etc so my blog post is a little behind.

I finished May painting challenge! It took a lot of time and effort but was well worth it imho. Although now I’m out of canvas so having to take a forced break until I can find some cash to buy more.

Anyway below are the last few paintings of May and the entire collection below that.

and the complete selection!


The End is Nearish!

Well May has only a few more days to go and then I will have finished my challenge. Once of the unexpected benefits has been the amount my daughter has joined in on the painting, hopefully she will continue throughout her life and become an awesome artist!

Even if it just fosters a love of art I think its a job well done.

So as we end the month next post here is the works in progress, my daughters leading the way.



29th of May – My son wanted something from Maui


28th of May – Mist


27th of May – I had about 5 min to paint so thought stylized flowers would be nice 🙂



26th of May – Its nice what you can do with yellow, black and white…



25th of May – Working on adding the weight of water surging forward

Painting Away, Last Weeks of May

It has taken a bit of effort over the last 22 days to keep painting and I am very happy to say that I have managed to beat myself into some sort of routine which I will allow me to focus more on my art going forward.

That being said I’m sure I do not want to produce a picture every day but work on art most days is a definite goal.

Sorry I’m posting this one day later than normal, life got in the way (we are house hunting).

As a side note I have set up a Buy me a Coffee site, its not got a lot there but I wasn’t looking to use it to grow support just allow anyone who already followed/liked my art to help in buying art supplies.

And feel free not to too, this is a hobby not my full time employment after all 😀

So with today’s painting first, here is the art since I last posted:

Mid May Painting

Well art supplies are taking a beating but I’m finding the paint one picture a day is still a neat challenge.

We are currently house hunting amd cutting down on extra spending so my game subscription, netflix and spotify premium are all stopping.

The savings means  I can afford to buy art supplies so its sort of a win 😁

Was mulling over signing up to one of the buy me a coffee sites but unsure if I feel confident enough in my art to ask followers for donations.

Anyway latest paintings as below.

My 5yo daughters painting (she loves painting along)

Painting Away May

Well so far so good, I have managed to paint every day of May which has been fantastic fun and a great learning tool. Some of the works have been better than others but in each one I have added a little to my craft, well that’s the hope anyway.

So in reverse order here is the last weeks effort:

7th May – Ruins



6th May – Sun soaked



5th May – Outcrop



4th May – Happy Dragon (request from my 5yo daughter)



3rd of May – Riverbed



2nd of May – Ink Wash Tree



the first painting was on last weeks post :


May Madness of Sorts

Apologies for the later post, life being life.

Well not very mad however I did decide to attempt 1 painting a day for the month of May.

I don’t have any theme ideas and the quality will be sketchy but painting every day should be a good exercise.

So 1st of May

And some non May art.

And finally my twin 5yos finished their paintings
