Covid Creativity: 10Sep2021

by Brenda Sutton Mader

Clay is my medium of choice, but every now and then I like to revert to my passion for painting. I see blank, boring spaces and feel the need to create colour. This I do for myself, I am not a very good painter, but I have a lot of fun. It’s a way to escape and take a break from all the technical aspects of working in clay. 

This is an outhouse on my property, that needed a little repair and, I felt, it also needed to become part of the landscape.The ladybugs are wood fence toppers, cut in half , painted and glued in place.They were a lot of fun too. And we all need more ladybugs in our lives.

Come in, take a seat!
Don’t forget to write!

  1. I love what you have done with that outhouse, Brenda! Such a huge improvement over how it was before. It does indeed enhance your garden.

  2. Oh my heavens, absolutely fantastic. I expected a painting of the outhouse not on the outhouse.
    If you live near Laggan area you are very welcome to paint my old garden shed.
