As I said in my post below I have recently decorated and wanted some paintings on my walls so thought why don’t I do them. This painting changed as I painted, initially it was a slightly different colour, it was more a hill and sky with clouds and turned into this ripple of energy. I like this abstract piece its easy on my eye. I had fun and I must say I love painting with metallic paint LOL!
So I have not put brush to paper since December. I lost my artistic mojo and inspiration. But I am back. It’s spring and after redecorating my home in a lavender and pink colour I wanted something for my wall.
This painting started as a rather flat piece of art, yellow flowers and a different blue for the sky. It was flat, boring and sooo not what I want to be seeing every day. As art represents what is going on inside me. So after sleeping on it I painted it over and changed the sky and flowers and let my inner child play and basically Starbright did the rest.
Not sure what is going on for me internally speaking but its kinda wild and wacky and the flowers have tongues and spirals so think it’s maybe sexual/creative energy spiralling out. Also the main flower is my centre and the energy is moving like a whirlwind, so this is a good sign.
Hope you enjoy! I enjoyed painting it.
I painted a Rooster/Cockerel because I read that this symbol is great for career advancement and also I am aware of her love of all things chicken and wildfowl related (grin).

The Rooster borrowed from : http://fengshui.about.com/od/fengshuicures/qt/feng-shui-birds.htm
- Rooster. The Rooster is often used in feng shui for career advancement purposes, because the same Chinese word used for the official is also used for the Rooster’s chest. No matter which culture you come from, though, if you watch Roosters you will notice that they tend to be quite bossy, don’t they? For career advancement purposes the image of the Rooster is best placed in one’s lucky feng shui direction. The Rooster wakes up very early and announces the dawn of a new day/the dispersing of darkness and dark spirits, so the Rooster also came to symbolize the ability to ward off evil spirits.
My Aunt Susan’s painting was the first gift I made. My only regret was adding ink to outline the fairy. I had glossed the canvas before deciding I would rather it was not outlined so it had to stay that way. Embracing small imperfections and allowing myself mistakes. My Aunt loves fairies and the colour blue.
Okay, so admittedly these are VERY strange. However, these are drawings of my inner world. I have been processing and having a lot go on inside me lately and some of it has not been easy so my art is expressing my inner workings.
The head circled is in both drawings. Not sure what they mean yet.
Also do you doodle something if you are having some inner issues? Over and over and over again? The triangles felt important and the infinity in the next one always is.
This past 2 to 3 weeks I have been dabbling with the Feng Shui of my flat. It has been an interesting challenge as my flat is probably a Feng Shui experts worst nightmare lol! As we live above a garage, have only one entrance to our home, our bathroom is next to our kitchen, out kitchen is where our front door is and our wealth direction and upstairs is one complete room with no seperate walls. So its fun! Continue reading
I spent a couple of days immersed in this underwater playground. It’s quite a simple pencil sketch but I love seahorses and just wanted to colour in for the day. I love the idea of breathing and living underwater – how about you?
I hope to upload more art over the coming weeks and will when I can. At the moment I am painting a few canvasses for Christmas gifts for family and its taken up a lot of time. And as they are surprises I can’t post here – yet lol!
Tomorrow is the full moon and I wanted to do something for my sacred space. This painting became something very different to what I initially imagined. Continue reading
Overcoming my fear of paint again today. I must remind myself not to apologise for my art when sharing it. Musn’t compare one piece with another as its all different and its all new and its all me, bumpy bits, colour, imperfections…. all a reflection of the inner me and I am no longer going to apologise for me or my art.

This past 2 weeks I have felt like I have had a case of artists block. While my comfort level with pens and pencils is okay I was having a somewhat phobic reaction to using paint. I know it is just old programming from my childhood coming up to be heard. So today, thinking nothing would happen I was planning to go lie down in bed and do some healing on myself. However, something entirely different happened. Continue reading
I have sketched a range of curly kitten pictures lately. And the cat on the left hand side seems to appear in every image. Funny that recently a lovely ginger cat called Kipper came into the garden. I made friends with him. I love my imagination.
This was sketched with basic pencils. I used my new set I thoroughly enjoyed colouring this in.
