March 2017

 

It’s been a while and I am not really sure why.

I know I have been busy.  There has been work, of course, it’s been a lovely summer too.

Plenty of time with friends, interacting face to face, laughing, smiling, talking and some tears.

There has been 1st world dramas, a broken air conditioning unit that had me a little stressed for a while.

And there has been paint.

Here is a sample of what has come off my easel so far this year.

There is one top secret project.  A commission that I will have to wait until May to show off but I’m sure you will enjoy seeing all the other stuff I have been playing with.

A lesson in painting fabric and folds…

Helping a dear friend create a banner for her market stall.  She sells delicious traditional english style cakes and pastries.  I have also spent a lot of time, helping on the stall.  So much fun had spruiking and people watching.

Created in a time of pain, therapy in running dripping splashing paint

Big, bold, textural, still a work in progress.  Created with thick acrylic paint, knives and big brushes.

Just a doodle, something I dont do often enough probably.

Also a work in progress…maybe.  I have had a couple of people tell me they love this just as it is.  It’s in oil, thin paint.  Really just the underpainting.  I’m now in two minds whether the continue or leave as is.  I expect I will continue, although I do have other unfinished pieces I can work on until I make up my mind.

This blog has evolved, and changed so much since I started it 7 or so years ago.  As I have.

I have a much clearer idea now, of who I am and what makes me happy.  I am able to express my fears, pain and joy much more easily out loud and fear less that that will make me less likeable.

I wear my weirdness proudly, and continue to push myself out of comfort zones.

This little place in the universe that I created, when I was lost and lonely, has taught me so much.  It has introduced me to so many awesome people all over the world and helped me get to where I am now.  For that I will always be thankful.

Life is good, and I am living it.
