Paint Party Friday: Birds and other animals

I am extremely proud to present my sister Caroline’s paintings.

She sent me an entry for into our One-A-Week Photo Challenge, this week’s prompt is BIRD, and I knew she had been painting so asked her to send me some pics of her paintings too – Wow! So glad I did

I’m wondering if this magnificent chap will appear in a painting before too long. Caroline tells me she photographed him atย Come to Good Farm in Cornwall.

I’m lucky enough to have two sisters, and now they have both appeared on my blog this week: Sue who I am going to Chelsea Flower Show with and Caroline. We are all quite creative, I think we get it from our Mum.

Caroline is on Instagram @clthistlethwaiteart, where you can keep up to date with her latest works, which include silver jewellery as well! She has only just started sharing her work in this way and I know it would give her a tremendous boost you to take a look and leave a message.

She also sells greetings cards and some prints.

I’m joining this post in with Paint Party Friday.

    • She was a great knitter and also did crochet. She dabbled in oil painting and latterly took up silver-smithing. I take after her in that I like to try everything to see how it’s done. When we were little her creativity went into Fancy Dress costumes. We often won prizes at the local carnival and at Christmas parties. Unfortunately academia was thought more important in our family so creativity was given little credit. I’m hoping to redress the balance by supporting my grandchildren in all their various creative pursuits.


  7. She is a skilled artist Sandra, fantastic paintings.

  8. LOL, I’ve had plans for a while now to “advertise” my sister’s new nature photography blog, too. Great minds think alike! Lovely paintings. I’m not on Instagram, but I’d love to see some of her silver jewellery, too.
