Updates and my first FREE giveaway! Yay!
I was just wanting to give you a little update on my artwork and some insight about a shift that's taking place there.
In addition, for the first time I am wanting to do a giveaway. (See below for more info.)
Back to my artwork... This is a new piece entitled 'Harmony'. I'm loving the combo of elements in this painting. The colours are luminous too!
It's funny how things evolve don't you think? You have to get that little bit further ahead to make sense of the journey you have been on thus far sometimes. Well, that is what I am finding with my artwork at the moment...
Things are coming together - there has been a shift...
Drum roll... I have decided not to paint in the facial features on the women in my work anymore. For me the face is kind of irrelevant because it is just the fact that it is a woman that is important. The paintings are about you, me, your sister, best friend etc. It's not trying to be anyone in particular...
I love bright, vibrant colours and this continues with this new style of painting. I also love nature and wanted to include some detailed paintings within the context of the painting as a whole. Flowers are another love of mine, so you will be seeing more of them pop up too! The figure in the painting above has a semi-abstract feel to her shape and hair and this feels very freeing for me to paint in this way. 'Reawakening' is available here for purchase. (Prints will be offered too).
I think this style really sings to me because I recognise in myself two personality traits if you like. On the one hand I am quite organised, neat, some may say anal about some stuff. However, I also have a side to me that is spontaneous, fun and intuitive.
I see clearly, the two sides of my personality in the paintings! Do you see what I mean? It feels good, soulful and releasing to paint this way.
At the moment, I am very interested in folklore, ancient storytelling, Native American books and this I think is kind of reflected in my new artwork.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this new style to see what you think.
My first Giveaway details!!!
So next thing.... My first giveaway... I love entering these myself and thought it might be fun and different to try it here. So here is the info.
I would like to offer you all, the opportunity for three of you to receive a FREE signed, limited edition print (on A4 fine art paper, unmounted) from me. All you need do is share in the comments section, what is inspiring you at the moment in your life.
I will let you all know who the lucky three winners are in one week's time and mail them out to you. This is the print you will receive if you win... It is entitled 'Let it go...' and I thought it was apt for now with the leaves falling and the autumn colours etc.
Best of luck...
