The one that eludes me….


argh! lol, this piece has just not flowed at all…every single addition i do has something about it that simply does not sit right with me, and i have to laugh because for only the 2nd time, i took  some inspiration for this painting from another painting i saw on the net, (no its not a copy, its foundations lie in another painting) so its not something that has been ‘birthed’ from me entirely, (this is where i suspect the problem lies), and it has stopped and started a hundred times and i have loved and hated it more than a hundred times. I am now in limbo, i cant decide if my latest additions/edits/alterations have improved it, or made it worse….. surely its a little better??????? hmmmmm, too busy at the top, no, gawd I cant even get a grip on what i feel about  it. I thought when i started it i wanted to do a really busy fussy painting with lots of flourish and grandeur, but the more i go that way, the LESS i am enjoying it and am finding i am wanting to, and keep simplifying it after i have detailed it…… I AM going to go on with it though, nup- i dont paint over entire paintings easily, that really IS last resort material… no..i will carry on with the lighter areas and try to marry it together somehow, and see how it goes ….

Luckily i have other things on the go, and about to start another painting, only ‘prob’ is there are wayyyy too many ideas not enough canvas, paint or time. if i had all those things i would have no less than 15 on the go at once, and be in my element!

In other scintillating news 😉 My kids LOVED their paintings, and im going to sell prints of them, in fact will most likely do a whole range of kids paintings based along the same type of theme.

Opened up an online shop with Fine Art America and sold something (TWO things actually!) within 2 days of registering! YEEHAR!

‘Moon’ is still all but done… I am still emotionally attached, and need to detach just a tad to move forward with it… sounds weird but i know what i mean 🙂

My Word Art is rockin along nicely,

oh and……thanks for all the support people ,  its awesome!

have a great week!!!
