One totally awesomeballs thing I’ve done in the past 12 months was to participate in The Sketchbook Project. “What’s that all about?” I hear you ask. Well in a nutshell the lovely folk at The Arthouse Co-op send you out a blank sketchbook to fill with whatever takes your fancy then you send it back to them and they catalogue it into a big fat travelling art library. The sketchbooks then head off like good little rock stars on a boozy world tour so people everywhere can check them out. Once they recover it’s back to The Brooklyn Art Library [tell me more, tell me more]
Once again I’ve been a bit slack with the old blog posts. Life is busy. What can I say? Here is a quick little post about my last painting for 2011. As usual I didn’t have a title so I put it out to my peeps on Facebook and the lovely Mel from Meliesque Art suggested I call them The Blue Belles. I loved it so that became the title. In my mind these girls were upset with their lives so decided to become runaways, sisters who were willing to escape to anywhere as long as they were together. So [tell me more, tell me more]
I’ve been a bit quiet lately. Life is busy with 2 little ones to chase after and I’ve been suffering from a bit of a creative block unfortunately (creative blocks suck btw). Good news is I think the block has lifted and I will have some new art to share very soon. Yay!! In the meantime I can finally share my finished Rock Chick painting that I did as a commission for a very dear friend of mine. This little piece was created as a gift for a Bona Fide Rock Chick from Singapore who just had a little baby rock [tell me more, tell me more]
Some new art to share today, yay!! So here is Miss Polly. She is my first painting on wood panel. I was going for a vintage doll sort of a look. I will write some more about her a bit later though, for now I just wanted to share. There are a couple of progress shots on my Facebook page if you are interested.
Wow!!! This morning I jumped on Facebook for a quick look only to find a link to madeit’s front page which had a Rainbow theme. I clicked on it thinking to myself how cool it would be if my “Rainbow Girl” was in there. I laughed at myself then for being so ridiculous. I only opened my store 2 days ago. As if!!! And suddenly there she was!! Staring back at me in amongst all the beautifully colourful featured items was my little “Rainbow Girl”. How AWESOME!!!!! (yes I know I tend to use that word a lot) I’ve had [tell me more, tell me more]
So today was such a massive day for me. I finally clicked the magic button and listed my first ever product on Etsy. Yay!!! It was so exciting. I quickly whizzed over to the “Recently Listed” page and waited patiently to see my little painting pop up on the feed. I was so overwhelmed when I saw it I can’t even tell you. The funny part is in my head all I could hear was “We did it, we did it”. Definitely too much Dora The Explorer in this house I think :) Below is a little photo I took to [tell me more, tell me more]
