Here is another one of Shirley’s paintings. I think it is a beautiful painting. We were on holidays together when she took this photo. It was in a very ancient looking village, and was wet and cold. It was a great holiday, a real adventure.

Shirley is selling this painting. Why not check it out in ebay? Click here to see it. Though if you’re reading this after 20th June, you might be too late.

Another cold day here, and it’s still raining. Been raining all week. Tomorrow, we’re driving to Armidale, just for fun! Might have something to post about then.

My twin sister Shirley Peters is offering her watercolour paintings on ebay.

Because she likes to paint (a lot), she is happy to sell the watercolours cheaply, but I think it is rather sad to see them go for too little.

Have a look! They are great paintings. Others think so too, look at her great reviews.

Just for a few dollars you could own one of Shirley’s original, beautiful paintings.

This painting will only be on ebay for the remainder of today. If you miss it, there will be more. You could start a collection! They could make a wonderful display in any home.

My favourite so far was the ‘Bridge on Yellow Mountain’. Someone bought it though, but Shirley says she will do me another one!!! She is so kind.

Shirley’s user name on ebay is Sannpet. Click here to see the paintings on ebay.

You can see her other work at her own web site. Click here for Shirley’s web site.

Today has been freezing cold and windy. Didn’t do much! I got some wood for the fire and I studied Chinese. That’s about it. Not much to blog about.

Instead I’d like to mention my twin sister. Shirley is at last doing what she has always wanted to do, and that is paint. Today she modified her web site, so it’s timely to suggest you have a look!
Shirley is classed as an emerging artist, and she is doing very well at it too. See how many ‘solds’ she has!

If you look very carefully, you can see the artist’s reflection in the glass. I helped Shirley set up this exhibition after she very kindly came all the way out to the airport to pick up us last Wednesday.

The paintings are mostly of flowers, and can be seen on her one painting every other day dot blogspot website. There are also some fruits and water scenes from the Parramatta River near Putney.

Each and every one a beautiful painting .. an inspiration .. looking forward to doing my own. Shirley is a very busy person, yet she still finds time to paint. What a gal!

We went to the opening of Shirley Peters’ first one man show last night. It is at Brunswick Street Art Gallery in Fitzroy near Melbourne. She had a fantastic collection of rather large oil paintings, mostly depicting the unexpected combination of modern secular people, such as young runners and surf swimmers, in St Peter’s Basilica in Rome!!! Even horses! They are great paintings, each one is amazing, but all together it really was impressive. She sold 3 paintings on opening  night!!!

Here they are:
