My soul is made of meadow flowers...

Afternoon all....Ive had a burst of creativeness this week after finishing off my commission pieces.  I think that often comes from painting under 'controlled' circumstances or painting something you might not normally paint due to what the client wants.  Often I find myself thinking while Im painting the commission piece of all the things I could be painting!!  Anyway, this is an adaption of the Hummingbird painting I painted a  while ago.  Its mixed media (acrylic, paper, glitter and metallic paint) on canvas measuring 16 x 20 inches.  Price is $160.00

You are my sunshine....

 'You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey....'
That song has been in my head for a couple of days and this is the result of it!!  I have been feeling quite inspired by some beautiful quotes Ive been reading on Pinterest, and it has given me some new ideas for some mixed media work.
This one measures 12 x 12 inches and I have used acrylic paint, paper, buttons and glitter.  $65.00

"Spring Delight"..... New works!

Welcome, welcome, welcome!!
This mixed media painting is titled "Spring Delight' and measures 30 x 20 inch (76 x 51cm).  I have used mediums such as acrylic paint, paper, glitter glue and wire.  The flowers were made from stencilling and painting on watercolour paper.  I then machine sewed and cut them into flowers.  The flowers give the painting a 3d effect, which is what I love creating in my paintings the most!  In the centre of the flowers are a fine, coloured wire that has been curled and bent into itself.  I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process of this painting, and will certainly be painting something similar again in the future.  Maybe possibly in in a 3 or 4 colour combo like aqua/greens/mauves purples or something?  Will see!  Price of painting is $230.00.  Please contact me on juliemryder01@gmail.com if you are interested in purchasing this one :)

Below:  In the next 3 photo's I have added the painting into different settings so that you can see how it looks within different colour schemes.  It is not to scale in any of them though.
