Lorikeets Lunch

Abstract, Acrylic Painting, Floral, Sold, Splatter

This artwork is part of my splatter art series. It brings me so much joy, to literally throw paint on the canvas, and is a wonderful break from the more intense paintings I do. These paintings are for pure joy.
The canvas is clear primed to expose the beautiful thick woven linen fabric.
Framed in a painted white, lovingly made (by me) Tasmanian oak floating frame.

This is Life (Blue Butterflies)

Abstract, Acrylic Painting, For sale, Splatter

This is a part of the “This is Life” series of paintings… Sometimes the troubles of this life accumulate on me, overwhelming me and overcoming me and I want a break, I want it to stop, to ease up, for the burdens and the pains to be lifted. But do you know what…this is life. It is easy to look around and think that others have it easier than we do, and sometimes that is true, but sometimes it isn’t, the pains of this life are hidden so often by a facade, that make us believe that it should be easier than it is.My family has had a run of one disaster after another, over the past six months, but amongst that there is beauty, there is joy and there is hope.This painting has been about adapting, healing the past, looking toward hope, but seeing joy in the day to day, in the weeds that have abounded in the rain, in the rain itself, in the birds that wake me in the morning. When I stop and listen, moment by moment, I can keep putting one foot in front of another and enjoy the journey.

Mini He Loves Me…

Abstract, Acrylic Painting, Floral, For sale

This was a mini painting (done at the same time) of the painting He Loves Me…
Did you ever play that game when you are a kid where you pulled the petals of a daisy, he loves me, he loves me not, he loves me…
I used to played that a bit too often 🤔
Anyway for whatever reason I was reminded of that while I was painting this and despite all that I face with my physical and mental health, I am so grateful for the 3 “He loves me” in my life.

A Fresh Start

Acrylic Painting, Realistic

This is part of a beautiful local bush walk, behind a major Sydney hospital. You would never know such beauty exists, so hidden and so gorgeous behind a car park. It is also a local hang out for a variety of owl species.
I find it endlessly inspiring, due to its lushness and the juxtaposition of it being so close to the highway. It is interesting how this oasis can be found so close and so many are unaware of it.

One Sunday

A Moment

Abstract, Acrylic Painting, Floral, Neutrals, Sold, Splatter

This piece is part of my “abstractish” series. It is one of the most fun series I have ever painted. I start by literally throwing paint on the canvas (usually with one of my sons), over and over and over again and then paint what comes from it.
I love the freedom of painting this way, and I feel like the joy that I experience translates onto the canvas.
Comes in a (lovingly made) painted white Tasmanian oak floating frame.
