I found THE ribbon!

Hi, wow it’s been so long! I have been busy creating products for my Etsy shop which I want to stock, improve and use for selling my work. coming soon 🙂

As you know I live in Switzerland and today I discovered Swiss painter’s heaven. Hidden just 10 minutes down my road, so far unknown to me, is an amazing store for painting materials wooohoo! I was so excited…

Well, here you can see today’s purchases, five small canvases (from the heavenly store) and THE ribbon! I discovered this ribbon on my way to painter’s heaven in a small shop that sells sewing and knitting materials and is sadly closing down this week :(. Well, so I’m calling this wonderful stripy ribbon THE ribbon because it has been nominated (by myself) as my shop’s official ribbon. Every item that is shipped from my shop will have a bow of this ribbon around it!

You might have already noticed that I love stripes… my blog’s background is stripey!

I have to get back to painting… there’s a large new painting on the way and I want to get a small canvas started, too! Hope you love my stripey ribbon!?!


painting: blue bottle

Just 10 minutes ago I finished this painting and couldn’t wait to post it here!

Sadly, the photo doesn’t do it justice at all, somehow I couldn’t get the light right today…

I love love love blue glass everythings! I’m actually collecting jars and painting them blue because I want more blue glass around. This particular bottle was always blue, has a beautiful turquoisy colour and usually sits on a window sill in my old room. It’s always good to paint things that have sentimental value!

I painted it from a photo I took a while ago, it’s acrylic on canvas and 90 x 70 cm (35″ x 28″).

This painting is available in my shop! www.etsy.com/shop/RosannaBurford?ref=si_shop


I’d love to hear what you think, hope you’re having a great Friday!
