Painting in my Spare Time March 27, 2008

In my spare time in-between running the Enchanted Gift Shop I like to relax and doodle or paint, and I have been a casual painter since I left school.

I’ve always had an eye for the more mystical and mysterious things when it comes to drawing and painting, and some of my more favoured things to paint and draw are mermaids, faeries and general mythical things like these.

But every now and then I do something out of the ordinary, and the few pictures below show something completely out of the ordinary that I did a few years ago.

We were staying at Mena Caravan & Camping Site one Spring (after just moving down to Cornwall) and we had made good friends with the owners of the site, and they wanted the barn they had a pool table, table tennis table etc in to be redecorated and wanted me to come up with a design to liven up part of the walls.

My partner had helped repaint most of the inside of the barn, and I came up with the design with the help of the owners, which I think they were very happy with!

Anyway, check out the pictures of what I did below, and if you feel like it leave me a comment on how you think they look!

Coastal Walking around Cornwall March 12, 2008

As we’ve probably mentioned somewhere in the blog, we like to go coastal walking alot … or at-least when we’ve got the spare time in-between running the Enchanted Gift Shop!

One of the places we like to go is around the cliff tops near Hawkers Cove just near Padstow.

Sometimes we go early in the morning, before most people get up, so that we can be undisturbed, and other times we go right at the end of the day, again mainly to avoid any crowds … which there don’t tend to be along the coast path.

Anyway, see below for a few pictures we have taken along the way … hopefully they’ll give you some inspiration to go coastal walking yourself … apologies if there not very good … were still getting used to our new camera!
