Please go to my new blog....

Hi Everyone,

For various reasons this blog is no longer up and running. I wasn't able to register Studio 123 so my new name is Gaye Evans Gallery and there's a blog as well as a website. My gallery is now housed at SOUL, an artists's co-op, gift shop and gallery. Please have a look at our sites -

and Cristina Rose has a great blog, which you will find on Soul's blog. I, of course, am not technical enough to tell you how to get there!

Do please go and have a look, and thank's for visiting me.

Yvon Adams and exquisite pieces of jewllery

I think you'll agree with me when I say that these pieces are so absolutely beautiful. Yvon's still working on her website but when it's up and running, be sure to check it out. Her pieces are beautiful.

Blogger Trouble - and exquisite pieces

What can I say! I haven't updated my blog because I haven't been able to find it!!! Now that it's decided to visit me from cyberspace, I can't seem to get anything to happen as I want it! So let me see if I can give a quick run down of the amazing things that have happened since September. The first thing of course, is that I've had an exhibition and have also exhibited a small showing from Yvon Adams and Jeanne Wilson. Yvon is the creator of Glamorous Glass. Beautiful necklaces and earrings made from dichroic glass, with the most amazing colours tucked away inside. It's worth a picture and then I'll move on with a whole new post!

Spring has sprung, the grass has riz, I wonder where the birdies is!

September! Where was my good intention to keep this blog totally up to date? I wonder what happened. Whatever it was, it didn't do my blog any good because last post, was August 4th. However, if a pitiful excuse is required, then I have been very, very busy indeed. Painting and yet more painting for an exhibition that is FINALLY coming to pass. The advertisement will go into the papers next weekend, with Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday afternoon openings, 12 noon to 4pm in the last week of September and the 1st week of October. The paintings are ~ of course ~ flowers. Big, bright, bold and beautiful. There will also be a couple of surprise exhibitors. The people on our island are so incredibly talented and I'm delighted that Studio 123 provides an opportunity for others to show their wares also. Please keep an eye on this bog and with good luck and a fair breeze, I'll be madly blogging as I'm madly painting, madly gardening and madly living. Huh. Should be fun!

She who blogs on Monday has all the week to write....

to paraphrase an old nursery rhyme relating to tardiness! I really thought I had it down to blog every Monday but here we are, it's Thursday, two weeks later. Oh well. I've another blogging workshop with Tina this Saturday and who knows, maybe I'll find some extra hints on keeping up!
I'm painting like a crazed being at the moment, in the hope that the exhbition I had set down for 1st May, then 1st June, then 1st July then 1st August and now, 1st of September or really, Friday the 3rd, will actually happen. Everything is crossed. I'm hoping to again exhibit other works of art by some of the very talented people in our community. My December exhibition also showed works by Leslie Jenkins. Plaiting or weaving of the island flax is a traditional art for our culture and Leslie's plaiting is really fine. She displayed half a dozen hats with different styles and decorations. All the hats were in the natural colours of the dried flax but she had trimmed two of them with pieces that she had hand dyed ~ one in red and one in blue. I'll try very hard to get a photo out of her because they were spectacular.

Creative Me!

Okay, I've just uploaded another three paintings. Just for something completely different, they're frangipani!! The set of three are quite small measuring 8" x 8", 4" x 4" and 6" x 4". Quite sweet and I paint quite a few of them. Great gift for someone visiting Norfolk; a Norfolker visiting another country; a housewarming; a birthday ~ actually ~ for anything! I've received a few commissions for them in specific colour schemes and tones. All commissions graciously received.
