This piece I did as a fun challenge with a friend, based on Judy Wise's 30 Day Challenge to paint something
on one canvas every day for 30 days. I didn't quite do something EVERY day, but I did paint quite often, and I did really enjoy making this piece, without any forethought. I was just
along for the ride.
I LOVE to play and experiment with many
different media and supplies. From acrylic paint, pastels and watercolours to coloured pencils and inks, they can all dance on the same canvas to create a beautiful piece. Collage
elements will show up frequently as well. Join me in embracing the beautiful mess!
A silhouette of my son popping a wheelie on an acrylic layered background, with a little Starry Night inspiration. He is my superstar! (Well, one of them)
A canvas recreation of a journal page that
popped up for me...I LOVE the wisdom of the words that came with this lady, and her magical hair.
One of my favourite Mixed Media Mantra creations! Multiple layers of collage, acrylic paint, ink, and more paint. This reminds me of the definitions of recreate, and to embrace the transformation.
Sennelier Soft Pastels are so dreamy...I LOVE the way that they blend and get all over my fingers. ;) Did this one day and realized when it was done that she looks like me, so it was an unintentional self portrait.
My first introduction to my passion for art
was through acrylic paints. For this swan I used both Golden and Liquitex fluid and heavy bodied acrylics, gel medium and flexible modelling paste. Such a fun project, inspired by a
photograph by my friend, Melissa Ostrowercha. This painting inspired the thought that "Even the most graceful swan questions her own beauty", a reflection on self doubt.
A silhouette of my youngest son riding his
bike like a skateboard, as he says. He is also my superstar.
A fun acrylic painting that took on a life
and personality of it's own.
