My new painting has the longest name ever! But when I tried to rename it especially to make it easier for Sam at Late September (who is the poor person who has to say the name when anyone enquires about it) I just couldn't. From very early on in the painting process this became it's name without any doing of mine.
Angels Have Wings Because They Are Not Afraid To Fly
The idea of flight and believing in yourself is such an exciting prospect. Fear stops a lot of us from doing many things. It is often the fear of failure that prevents us from living true to who we are. Fear also gets in the way of creativity too, being fearful of making mistakes or creating something from within your very being that may not be accepted or liked by others. I don't believe in being fearless, this quite often comes with risky choices or dangerous outcomes but to step into your fear, acknowledge it and walk through it carefully to the other side, reaps such great rewards. I'm quite taken by the idea that Angels own their wings, were given them because they always had faith in knowing how to use them. What beautiful things were you given that you are not afraid to take flight with?
My new painting can be found at the lovely Sam's at Late September in Glenbrook.
Prints of my paining can be found in my Redbubble shop.
I love looking back at progress photos of my paintings. Seeing where they began and the path they tread to find the end result. Here are some elements of what makes up one of my art works. It's not finished yet however I look forward to sharing it with you soon.
I have a new painting that I just finished, it just needs photographing and D-Rings fitted before it is ready to be sent out into the world. I love that the process of painting is just fun for me now. I don't do the "Is this good enough? conversation in my head, because if I did I would never paint again. The process and joy, the feel of paint and the execution is what makes a piece of art. If all these ingredients are working then the end result will look after itself.
In the mean time Redbubble are kicking some exciting goals! They have launched a new product....scarves, they are sheer, pretty and perfect for the upcoming cooler months. I hope you like them.
Samantha from Late September posted this lovely photo of "Spiritual Warrior" on her Instagram account. I love my art hanging on her shop walls.
This is my first completed creative project for 2015, and is called "Love Canvases". I hope to create more as they bring me such joy and the combination of paper and paint is limitless. I love working with paper and paint and I seem to be on an endless journey to discover the best ways these two mediums work together. I hope you like them, they are for purchase here and local delivery is free.
Such a fabulous way to start the holidays, a mixed media workshop. There was an amazing amount of intuition and creativity today, especially with the Mums...we even got out the glitter! Thanks ladies for stepping outside of my lesson plan, that is what I really love, when my students just let it happen! Thank you for coming today and supporting my little venture, to spread as much creativity as I can. Much love and gratitude.
I always make sure I check out the new products when Redbubble releases one. Yesterday I received my design "Aloha" on mugs. Oh my, I have to say I was so pleasantly surprised as they are really gorgeous. The art work is bright, glossy and beautiful and the mugs are a gorgeous shape (my fav to drink coffee out of). And of course Redbubble's packaging is always entertaining. Discount Code: RBSHOP15 ends in a few days.
Here is just a little sneak of my new painting. I have stalled a bit on it, however I am not frustrated by that, it will pick back up at the right time.

This week apparently brought World Rhino Day, and I just so happen to have a Rhino design on a tee, my new iPhone Pineapple case arrived, we got our creative on with 6 wonderful students for a workshop. There were some school holiday shenanigans, a 9th birthday and my lovely photographer friend came to visit (Kylie Carson).
