Paintings in their new homes! 😊

I love painting and creating, but what I love more is when I get to see where they end up!

 Each artwork I sell goes off on a journey. Some find a home on a nursery wall or in a living room. Some have headed off to Portugal, America, Al Ain in UAE. It is inspiring to hear the story about the connection each customer has with the artwork and why they chose that particular piece. It really is amazing! 

Here is a couple of recent images that have been shared with me 😃

The Master

Putting finishing touches to Master Chief. I’ve worked into it with promarkers as struggled to get the darks in coloured pencil. My black coloured pencil is now about 1inch long lol 😂 

Something Different 

I love the challenges that come with a commission. It often pushes you out of your comfort zone and forces you to try something new. 

Scary as it is, there is nothing more exciting. But it can all go horribly wrong!! What if they don’t like it? 

I go with the flow, send pictures and updates as the piece progresses. I always have the attitude “I’ll give it a go”

Tonight I’m working on a piece which is definitely a far cry from my usual work. Halo! Master chief.

I have used ink wash background and masked out the figure. I am now working in coloured pencil to add the detail. I am enjoying the process and working on a subject that provides its own challenges. 

Make time for ‘Messy Time’

‘Don’t touch!’, ‘those are mammy’s pencils’, ‘mammy is working’ are all things I often hear myself saying to the little hands reaching and eager to create. 

It’s important to make time for ‘messy time’. So today that is exactly what we did. 

We set out my 3 year olds own paint palette and art equipment and just played. Not to create anything in particular, just the sheer fun of creativity and exploration. I learned so much! 

I often find I get sooo wrapped up in ‘adult world’ that I forget why I started to paint in the first place. 

Watch this blog as I’m going to be researching and trying out toddler friendly art activities. Let’s have some fun! 😉

Have you tried any creative ideas with little child? If yes comment and send me your photos and ideas
