This fabulous plate was painted by my no-blog painty friend. She gave it to me when she closed down her very luvverly shop/painting studio about six weeks ago.
I love the colours, I love the stars and the fish and I love the sense of movement. But most of all I love the owl's wing around the cat's shoulders.
My no-bloggy painty friend makes up these triffically clever ideas and puts them onto plates and bowls and mugs and jugs and, having tried to paint onto china, I remain in awe of her skill and talents.
The sad face came about when my nominated birthday cake plate leapt out of the cupboard
one day and landed on the bench.
My very talented, no-blog friend says not to worry she can do more but it just won't be the same.
