Welcome Midwives

Hello and welcome, lovely midwife!

Come in and nourish your eyes & soul with my vibrant, happy art!

Take a seat and put your feet up, here in the delicious afternoon sun – beside the cat perhaps. I’ll put the kettle on :D

Why are we so drawn to life, love, kindness, art and joy, along with juicy colour, gardens, cats and stripes? Vincent and Émile say it well:

“It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.”
~ Vincent van Gogh

“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”
~ Émile Zola

Bold Art triptych of 1. a broccoli watercolour painting, the broccoli is in greens and has a blue and white checked background, 2. a photographic self protrait of Tangerine Meg in a woolly hat and scarf and red spectacles, and 3. a photograph of an orange cat in a chair with stripy cover.

New here? Here are some happy art blog posts to get you started:

Sometimes I interview wonderful people. Sometimes I make listsone of my favourites is this one on the bold art of bike riding.

Other times I muse about health (including the making of thyroid bold art and the thanking of piggies), Sunshine, women, flowers and courage, bold art and happiness and life, society or the positive side of social media.

Cats aren’t perfect but we love and make art of them anyway. And lose them.
