A very quick creation i did a couple of weeks ago,…fast and fun,..those are the ones i enjoy the most…. they are really ideal, these little ones, for gifts too, and im enjoying being able to do that.
 
 
Been finishing my commission ‘Heart, Soul, Whole’  triptych, and its all but ready… just varnishing it as we speak and it will be shipped next week, pics to come tomorrow.
Most of my time has been spent on that, I have also started another hibiscus/hippy/paisley style paining as that one proved ot be exceptionally popular, selling a print, 2 cushions and a bag in one day! I have had 4 offers to buy the original but I, unusually, dont want to sell it…well not yet anyway, there nearly always comes a time when i do, but this one is in my kitchen area and looks great, brightens everything up, good feel to it! (esp since we have had THE most CRAP summer you could ever imagine… ‘what summer??’ i mean to say.
 
Recently i was honored that a  Canadian choir form Ottawa, have used one of my paintings for their promotional brochures, posters etc for their next big concert. I think they have chosen perfectly (Voices of the Earth theme), and it looks amazing in the poster:
 
 
And this one below is finished now, my Zen Flower. Got a little fiddly toward the end, but we got there, it was one of those ones that roared out fo the gate from the start, then sat and looked at me for a few months 🙂 that one where you are just not quite sure how much more to do, or not to do… im gald i ‘stopped there’ and tweaked the detail a bit and …done.

Im off to Sydney (Australia) at the end of this month to hand deliver my next commission which i have just started, (pics coming soon), its for my Uncles boardroom in his offices and I haven’t seen him in the longest time (we are really close ) that it seemed appropriate to give it to him with a big hug as well. 🙂 so 5 days in Sydney on my own should be AWESOME! (I love travelling by myself) and im SO looking forward to catching up with my Uncle, some fabulous contacts I have made thru my art, (one being the commission i have just finished), my friends there, and another lady (also thru my art) whio I may be doing a book with! 
Its all go I tell ya! lol!
 
Im sure there are things i have forgotten to write, but ill be back later with more pics and such.
Hope you are all well and rocking your worlds!

  1. Busy, busy, busy. (;
    Really liking “Seascape Insight”. It feels kind of like simultaneously looking out *over* the ocean, and looking *under* it.
    And that poster/brochure does look mighty fine!
