In Spirit

This is my latest creation and a new kind of style for me.  I really enjoyed this more abstract painting and I'm in the middle of another one.

This is a laneway in Morocco with the light shining through doorways and magical lanterns hanging down reflecting off the tiles.  I've never been to Morocco (except maybe while watching the movie Casablanca!)  but whilst I was painting this I was absolutely there in spirit!

Magic & Mystery

Here is another painting from Bliss Fruit Studio.  I love mermaids, they are full of magic and mystery!

I have lots planned for the future and am excited to be getting close towards walking again.  I miss my independence!  However it has been great to have so many weeks to incubate new ideas and directions in life, so I'm not complaining too loudly.

Creatively it has been such a great time.  Time off means I've had loads of energy to spare.

More paintings to come!

Best Meditation

Vase of Flowers

More canvases arrived from art supply shop last week and so I settled in to paint some more.  Today,  a vase of flowers.

Windy weather kept me indoors this time and I listened to the radio or sometimes just to the sounds around my neighbourhood.  The best meditation of all is to just listen!  That, and being absorbed in painting means all of your worries simply slip away!

Mother's Day has come and gone and I managed to catch up with both of my children, so I couldn't be happier!

The good news is the Doctor says I can bear weight on my ankle, so walking again is just a couple of weeks away.  Yay!

I hope you too have had a creative day in some way, shape or form!

Painting up a Storm!

Blue Bottle
It's been stormy weather around here on the outside (for days now) and I've been painting up a storm inside my studio too!  I will need to pause for a while, since I need to wait for art supplies to be delivered.  Patience is required!

Funky Tree
However,  there is always the art journal and I've signed up for an E-Course called Spectrum.  So that should keep me out of mischief for a while!  Take a look, you may wish to join too!
