I’ve been enjoying a lazy Sunday lie in whilst deciding whether or not I should visit Greenwich Market in London, it’s cold out there!
I grew up in Greenwich and always enjoyed visiting the arts, crafts and antiques market on a Sunday, it became a ritual amongst my friends to meet there for Sunday lunch and take a walk in the park, happy days!
I still have some pieces of art and antiques that I collected at that time!
Last night I continued working on my self portrait, it’s almost finished now..

Hello again!! I guess its that time when we start decorating our homes with seasonal trinkets, garlands, trees with ornaments etc etc
I always wanted to make my own wreath and decided to try making one out of paper!
Everyone thought it was real!!
It looked so good that I decided to make a tutorial showing how I created it, if you have an electronic paper cutter such as the silhouette cameo then this tutorial is perfect for you, and you can also cut the leaves etc by hand!
I hope you enjoy this tutorial and I look forward to seeing your creations!, please feel free to post them up on my art group here
Hello everyone!! I hope you are doing good on this December day? Maybe you are gently sliding into seasonal events and planning for the last month of the decade!!
Wow! we have come so far in 10 years.. I actually started this blog in 2010 and my first post was about my fascination with infrared photography, you can view it here
I will be once again taking up infrared imagery in 2020 as part of a dreamy landscapes project that will hopefully become a calendar, so watch this space!!
Anyhoo as we celebrate the end of a decade and welcome in a new calendar year I want to introduce you to December as ‘Tree of Life’ month and release my ‘Tree of Life’ painting in various different formats for the first time.
When I painted it I wanted to explore how the needs of a tree are very similar to the needs of a person. I placed those needs around the tree like the earth in which its roots could grow.
I think its quite fitting as we go into the new decade and into new versions of ourselves, to capture a reminder of how we can be both strong and delicate at the same time, and that all our aspects need to be nurtured in order for us to grow.
This first offering comes in the form of a ‘Tree of Life’ greetings card.
Please click to link below for more details and delivery options.
I welcome you all to join me in celebrating ‘Tree of Life’ month too, maybe you will paint a tree of your own?

Hello everyone! I hope you are well!!
Today I finished a new sweet girl painting, she was inspired by my niece who has beautiful golden brown hair and green eyes.
I had lots of fun painting her, from creating a layered background, drawing the form of the girl as well as adding details.
All of which I will be able to show you in a free video tutorial for this painting which will go up on my YouTube channel here YouTube Joanne Seale
I cant wait to see the sweet girls that you create too, please join my new Facebook group to be notified as soon as the Video Tutorial is published.
