As you can see, she has used my Patterned Circle designs, and the Droplets are almost identical - apart from the fact that they're really badly painted. She also hasn't chosen the stones with as much care (hers are rough and uneven). Mine were created from March/April onwards - she set up her shop at the end of June.

I wanted to show you this because it's so different from viewing the paintings as images, 'flat' on a computer screen. This snapshot was taken quickly in my mum's living room yesterday. It's still not the same as viewing the paintings in reality, but you get more of an idea of how they really look...

The second 'in progress' shot of a piece for the Chelsea Art Fair in April. This is the smallest piece I'm working on (20x16"). The largest will be 40x40" approx (100x100cm). I'm aiming for four pieces in total.
