I've got a trillion things to do, maybe more, and then Valerie comes up with the new theme at "Art Journal Journey" which is "Inspired by the Masters".
Sorry, trillion and one things, you'll just have to wait.
Alan Davie, was a Scottish artist who died in April this year aged 93.
You can see many of his paintings here, showing his great originality, imagination and enthusiasm.
He used many symbols, many bright colours and sometimes strange creatures in his work.
Right up my street, really.
I used some of my own patterns and symbols from my sketchbooks in this "Inspired by Alan Davie" piece, made using oil pastels and textiles dyes.
Respect, Mr. Davie, it's a lot harder than it looks.
And thanks, Valerie, for a great theme.
I'm also linking to "Paint Party Friday".
