hey there lovelies and a very happy monday to you, wherever in the world you may be.
today i wanted to share with you some new art i have been working on recently (there's quite a lot of it!) and share with you some of the stories behind the art itself. underneath each picture i have added in a link to view it in my store plus a bit of background on my thoughts about the work and what i used to create it. enjoy!
a beautiful dreamer. art print available here.
a girl whose dreams are colourful and vivid. someone who takes no stock of anything negative and who focuses on her dreams no matter what. ie the kind of girl i strive to be ;) i created this one in the last week and had a lot of fun stamping and introducing more vivid colours to my work with my watersoluble crayons.
a golden haired pixie girl. art print available here.
this lovely girl features the most adorable chubby cheeks and the most vibrant bronzes and golds. she is a pixie surrounded by a metallic shine and that playfulness shows in all she does. her green eyes look off to the side as she is thinking of her next upcoming pixie adventures. she literally has a heart of gold. i had some fun with acrylic paints here making this painting, using some stencils too.
a guardian angel. art print available here.
she is strong, yet calm and wise. she is full of love and compassion for all. her eyes look deeply into your soul as she searches for the best way she can help support, nurture and encourage you on your journey. her silvery wings will wrap around you and envelope you in a feeling of calm contemplation and a sense of contentment. you have met her before, but i couldn't help but share her again - she is definitely one of my favourites!
music in her soul. art print available here.
thoughtful and fully self contained within her own world. she lives to make music and music lives through her very being. when she closes her eyes the melodies continue as she centres herself and feels her spirit rise. loving the blue hair here - created with watersoluble crayons and pitt pens. love those. and the little butterflies are an added touch :)
red haired goddess. art print available here.
full of inner wisdom and strength. she is every woman's inner goddess made into shining reality. she is calm, kind and as strong as steel when she needs to be. she listens to the wind and sways accordingly. she fulfills her dreams and stands strong in her purpose and in pursuit of her dreams. i definitely have a thing for flowing locks lately! i have also discovered a love for paynes grey in my work too :)
timeless wisdom. art print available here.
her hair betrays her wisdom, yet is still beautiful. the silver crowns her and shares her elevated status with the world. she is kind and loving. lots of thoughts have passed through her mind - she has a lot to share with the world and a lot to give. the pink blush betrays her girlishness which is still ever present. i loved creating this lady. her gorgeous rosy round cheeks and her beautiful lavender eyes really speak to me.
the original art above i am busily framing ready for it to be hung in a local coffee shop and for sale - yay! i can't wait to see these lovelies out and about brightening up the space.
i also wanted to share with you guys some videos i filmed last week as part of kris osters heaven to earth video challenge.
each day last week i filmed and shared a video explaining all of the different ways i bring the heavenly to earth in my life and my biz. basically, how my work helps bring a spark of passion, or a spark of the divine into people's lives.
i have never done face to face videos before (as ordinarily i would just film my hands painting!) but i am so glad i took part!
this week, i will share with you each of my videos. today's video is all about who i am and how i personally bring the heavenly to earth.
the videos themselves really explain my aims for the cgs and for my art so clearly that i felt i had to share them with you.
i hope you enjoy them!
