New Art Work...

Been busy trying to get more organised in my posting and bringing everything together.... recently finished these pieces of work.  Made the decision that I wanted to have more complete works than partially finished ones.

I really enjoyed doing these paintings, and love the use of colours and textures that you can get with the different mediums.

You are strong enough...
This painting started out with layers, then I looked for the image to begin to emerge


We are held back by the contraints of our own minds....
Imagine....a world of possibilities!  

How does your Garden grow?  How are you
tending to the garden of your dreams?

Got a few more on the boil, there doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day!  Have a blessed weekend!

  6. Hi Ella, these paintings were part of the series that where I allowed the images to come forth, i did the backgrounds and waited to see what would come out. I am hoping to do a portrait of my mum soon. blessings.
