The Gallery – Holiday & Pop Art Kids – Louisa

The Gallery

The Gallery’s theme this week is “Holidays”.

Palm tress, blue skies, deckchair, suntan lotion and good read. Sounds like the makings of a great holiday… in our backyard.

With The Englishman’s MBA’s fees and exam schedules, a stay at home mum and two kids, we shall be having a lovely holiday in at home this year. Trips to the Science Museum, Picnics in the Park and lots of mummy & daddy time for the kids are planned. Lovely Summer.

Pop Art Kids – Louisa

A while back a ran a giveaway of a Pop Art Kids portrait to those people joining me on Facebook! The lucky winner was Maren and her little Girl Louisa!  Here is the final product!! The actually painting looks even better live, I know that I would say that, but it is true.

Will ship internationally. Contact me on info (at) redtedart (dot) com.

      You must! It is lovely. If you do go, get in touch and I will tell you the “bits” I know!!! x


  9. I love holidays in my back garden! Holiday is time when you don’t have to live on the clock, do chores, washing, ironing, cooking and so just enjoy the weather, read great books, spend time together and be spontaneous.



  10. love the pics. You gotta take what u can get. I will probably be having the same lol.


  11. i love stay at home holidays!

    picnics with your friends in the park, bbq’s in the back garden, trips to museums that you take for granted because they’re on your doorstep, long walks along the canal

    the perfect summer =)
