Pearly Pebbles

Acrylic Painting, Sold, Splatter

This was influenced by a previous painting and lessons I learn from Mitzi Vardi at a class. Super fun experimenting with splattering paint, water and then seeing what comes of it. 
I love this process as it starts out as completely abstract and forces me to be uncomfortable and not paint perfectly, but go with the flow of what the painting reveals over time.

Nelson Bay

Acrylic Painting, For sale, Impressionism, Neutrals

This is a reworking of an old painting. I always loved the colours of this painting and so never wanted to change that, but after a recent foray into art using stickers, I was inspired to create an impressionistic version of it and I just love it.
Requires stretching or framing.

Different is Interesting

Acrylic Painting, Floral, For sale, Splatter

When I painted this I was desperate for stress relief and to throw some paint on a canvas. 
As I was doing this, I was thinking about my boys and the obstacles they faced in life. They both have things that make them different than others and at times this has made life difficult for them. 
This painting evolved into a statement to them: that what makes them different also makes them interesting. This painting is all the better for that one flower that sticks out. 
Hopefully, when people see this artwork and they also realise that what makes us different makes us and life all the more interesting.

Bursting Colour

Acrylic Painting, Floral, For sale, Mixed Media

This artwork was inspired by the most beautiful flowers, that were given to me by friends, for my 40th birthday. They were so full of life, love and beauty I had to capture them in my own way.

Ink Study 4

Abstract, For sale, Ink Painting, Mixed Media

Life has been getting in the way of art, but I have been still desperate and longing to create. 
So I tried something different. 
I love the flow and organic nature of ink and water. I love how it changes over time, with water and as it dries. I love the shapes it creates. I really enjoyed giving abstract a go also. It is actually almost harder for me than realistic art. Did it work or not…you be the judge.
This painting would look great, framed in a series, with others in this series.

Restfully Divided

Abstract, Acrylic Painting, Neutrals, Sold

So this was frustrating…I had this idea for my new painting to paint how I feel…divided. 
To be a commercial artist you are supposed to have a style, for your art to be recognisable as yours. 
To be happy, I have to paint how I feel, which is up, down and all over the place. 
As a person, I feel constantly divided…manage the house, love and take care of the kids, love my Husband, serve God, have a career, earn money, take care of myself… 
I wanted to paint a painting divided, to show how I felt…so divided, and do you know what happened? I tried…and failed, lol, kind of like life most of the time. 
So instead, I washed over it, cut off some pieces and no one knows the divided painting underneath…hmmm… 
Restfully divided?
