week 4 - conference

Image
Week 4 and a larger work this time, 18" square or 450mm x 450mm - acrylic and graphite on stretched canvas, ready to hang and available on trade me for a while.

I love the tweeting and chatter of birds, especially in the mornings and the evenings as they gather together in a communal tree. Almost like a conferential get-together of birds ;-)

Wonder what they're discussing with such enthusiasm..

I've painted this in many layers, with lots of drying periods in between. It's gone through the exciting, to the ugly, to the maybe, and finally the acceptable stages.. full circle ha!

Thanks for taking a look, blessings

Week 3 - heart of gold

Image
Week three already, it's motoring already and to be honest, I haven't had time this week to make a brand new little work for this project. But I do have this sweet little work from a few weeks back.. and seeing that I'm the one who makes the rules around here and no-one'll dare challenge me, I'll be sneaky and slip this one in...

It is in the shape of a heart, with some collage elements to add texture, painted in soft colours with some gold accents. And it is about having a heart, spreading the love always. Even making eye contact with someone, acknowledging their presence, could be a life saver.

I was watching a lady caregiver on the ferry yesterday, of an 8 year old little girl with the ability of a 9 month old baby. What love. Angels living among us, both of them.


Thanks for visiting my blog.. heart of gold is available from trademe for this week - size is about 300 x 300 x 15mm, acrylic, collage on stretched canvas, ready to hang

cheers, e



2016 and kicking up a storm... week 1

Happy New Year all you beautiful people. Here in New Zealand 2016 started off with some strong winds (good for some serious sailing) and rain fit for a couple of sizeable farms. A country full of sizeable farms at that! Wherever you are, may this new year be packed with good things, happy times, spiritual growth, family and friends to hold dear and shower with love. Above all, may you be the beautiful person you were created to be, carry your weight and bloody rock the boat!

New year, new energy to make new plans to get some art out there. So I thought I'd take up the old exercise of making a little work every week for a year, just because I can (try), right? Off with a bang then in the shape of the earth, a 3D work, to be suspended from somewhere up high via clear fishing line which should not be too visible. The ball was painted beautiful greens, blues, purples and pinks which were then the base for all kinds of butterflies, one of my favourite goggas, up there with ladybugs.. …
