BP Portrait Awards 2009

Yesterday saw my annual outing to the BP Portrait Awards. Normally it is held at the Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh, but was at the Dean Gallery this year. I am always in awe of how talented the artists are, some of the portraits look so much like photographic images, it kind of blows your mind a bit.

My personal favourite this year was Benfica Blue by Mark Jamieson. I think it stood out for me, the colours and the bottle...truly stunning!

Loved this artwork outside too.............

Just listed this unqiue necklace with my shop at Not Mass Produced
A pretty and versatile piece, that would transcend through the ages and lend itself to many an outfit! I always love the delicate blush colour of these pearls, they whisper glamour and suit most colourings.
