The Craft Barn weekly challenge is certainly making me think - this week's topic is masculine pastimes, and again, I didn't have much inspiration at all.
Then I found a background I had created on glossy card using Brushos (naturally!), and cling film. Which brought to mind that I had a yacht die, so...
The waves are created by cutting curved pieces from the same background. A few stamps completed the picture.
Don't think I'd make a very good sailor, I would get seasick on a millpond!
On a completely different topic, this week I went to The National Gallery to see the "Inventing Impressionism" exhibition, which is about Parisian art dealer Paul Durant-Ruel who championed painters whose works had been shunned by the art establishment. There were some fabulous paintings on show.
Including some stunning Renoirs, but my favourites were 5 Monets from his "Poplars" series.
This one I loved; it's usual home is the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
That is why I love these exhibitions, they are only on for a short while (this one ends on 31 May), but it is fabulous to see works that normally reside in private collections or museums around the world.
And, there is a new resident on the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square. Called Gift Horse, it is by German artist Hans Haacke. It's a skeleton of a riderless horse with a London Stock Exchange ticker fixed to its leg.
The horse is quite pleasing - but I did love that blue cockerel!
