Change in shape....

Well Ive been seeing quite a bit of paintings being done on oval and round shaped canvases, and so I thought I might give it a go also!!  It is quite different to work on especially doing a landscape style painting (even though it will most likely turn out to be a little bit more abstract in the end!).  But all in all, I quite like the shape so far.  Ive gone with a softer palette of pale blues, mauves and aqua.  Looking forward to it drying and making some more progress on it hopefully over the weekend.  I will be adding some delicate flowers and leaves and what not.  I will post my progress soon.

NEW....commissioned piece.

Good evening everyone.
Here is my latest commissioned piece I finished earlier on this week.  It measures 24 x 36 inches and I have used acrylic paints and glitter glue.  The photo's really don't do it justice!  The colours are so much more vibrant in the flesh!!  The glitter and metallic paint that I have used, also doesn't really show up in the photo's either.  In real life there is a beautiful and subtle sparkle and shimmer!

If you would like something commissioned, please email me on

New Mixed media girls.....

Good evening everyone -
 I have completed these two new mixed media girls, both very quite similar but different at the same time!  They both measure 40 x 50cm, and prices start at $175.   I have used acrylic paint, pastels, impasto paste, paper, beads, fabric, ink and glitter glue.  They are an absolute joy to make and although they are quite time consuming, they are a labour of love!  I hope you love them as much as I do!!  They both have a gold shimmer on the back ground which shows up much better in real life, as does the glitter glue!!
