Paint Party Friday, Changing it up a bit! :)

Hi guys,

Well it is freezing here now we are officially in winter while the rest of the world are going on their summer holidays. Ah well. I've been sitting in my warm cosy art area and busy creating!

Here is what I have been working on this week.

 First up is this 'Frida' inspired painting. I didn't have her in mind when I painted this but I felt like I must have been channeling her when I looked at the finished product :) She is part of my burlesque collection :)
 This is a new sugar skull piece that i have added to my sugar skull inspired collection :)

These last two paintings were done in the last few days. I felt like tackling something completely different and have had a lovely time with these beautiful creatures! :)

I also have available to order these cute deluxe tote bags! I like how it's completely different to my usual work!!! :)

Hope you've all had a good arty week :)

Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches for this weekend!

Hi everyone,

Well I have been absent from blog land for a little while this time because I had to have minor surgery on my finger last week. Luckily it wasn't my drawing hand but it still slowed me down a bit as I was in quite a bit of pain which wasn't very nice, which also made it impossible to type. Almost back to normal now so I have been able to work on some things this week.

 This piece was done just before I had my surgery. I wanted to play around with putting my artwork on a black background. I actually prefer the cropped version below though :)

 I'm working on a series of Burlesque inspired paintings in preparation for a Burlesque market that I have decided to do in August. I met a lovely Burlesque lady on line from my city who told me about this market and suggested that i give it a go. I went to check out their last one a couple of weeks ago and it looked like a lot of fun! :)
This last painting I did for a special family member who has just moved into a new house, I thought she would like a special painting for her room. I have painted her her in dream place. This little 6 year old already knows what she wants to be when she grows up. A fashion designer living in Paris!  I really enjoyed working on this one as I hadn't done a canvas for a while and it wasn't just a close up of the face which made it more challenging :)
