I'm still trying to fit my life into my life, so (apparently) I've decided to write one big update each month. Excellent!! Works for me : )
So what did May bring my way....
At the end of my last update I gave you a sneak peek at the painting I was working on. Here's the (very nearly) finished masterpiece. I'm a bit excited about this one mostly because for the first time I felt I was able to just let go and let the painting evolve. Layer upon layer upon layer upon... oh look... wow... that looks like a naked woman. And I literally had to bring her to life.
It's titled "Emerging" because, well she did. And is. And so am I. I can feel my unique painting style and the unique introverted, passionate, sensitive and creative ME just beginning to peek through reveal, emerge. Lets just hope when I do I'm not blue, bald and naked.
I created this mixed media print using acrylics and photoshop.
We've been renting a lovely house/duplex since we sold our family home after my separation. It's been a great easy space for me to land and find my confidence but I'm beginning to feel ready and quite excited about finding a home to call our own. We inspected 3 this month in the hope that one might steal my heart when I walk through the door. That didn't happen. Maybe next month : )
I crocheted 32 squares to make another rug like this one. Only about 60 more to go.
Made these prints using acrylic and photoshop.
And just for fun... rediscovered Dr Hook. Were they not the coolest band on the planet back then? A hey hey... that's beautiful!
Actually it's nice doing one big update at the end of the month. Lets me see and appreciate what I've achieved. Even the little things all add up.
Yes I'm happy with May 2014. What will June bring? More layers, Uggies and climbing into a toasty warm bed each night I expect. Can't wait : )
"Art has given me so much. If I can pass it on and inspire even one other person to live their own creative passions then I'm a very happy artist indeed "
