New original watercolour paintings - grass fairy and jumping in leaves

Want to see what I painted yesterday? Three new paintings have gone up in the Jellypark Store which I did on Saturday while the boys were out and I had a nice quiet house to myself. I do draw an awful lot of fairies but I can't resist them, not sure why as I was never a girlie sort of girl at all. 

This picture reminds me of jumping in crunchy leaves as a kid, is anything more tempting than a huge pile of crisp autumn leaves? Joy of being a parent means you can still do it but mine are getting a older now so not sure how much longer I can get away with that.

There is a new painting in the shop too of a little boy playing football in the park. he is wearing an Arsenal kit - well no surprises there!


  1. oh I smiled so big when I saw these!!!! totally brill, Claire!
    and I never thought much of pink until I had 3 sons..... then I needed as much girlie around me as possible to keep me sane! grins!

  2. I was always a bit of a tomboy and now I have two sons there is nothing girlie around at all - maybe thats why I keep drawing all these fairies, my inner girl trying to get out!

  3. Claire they are stunning, the girl jumping in the leaves is just delightful :o) I'm not a pink person but I have a 6 year old daughter who adores pink so I am surrounded by it.
