The bonfire. A glimpse into my working space


There still is a lot more work to be done on this one but I wanted to keep you updated with the stages it’s going through.
Here, I am using extra strong gel medium to even out the texture and “nooks and crannies” of each flame which is a work of patience that I’ll have to take in my stride especially after just recovering from the flue. This is the last project of my bonfire collection.

You can check the first ones in this blog by typing in the search sidebar Bonfire and scrolling down to check the four…

Please excuse any mistakes in this post as it is the first time I am not using my laptop to do it.

It’s a great relief to have worked out how to be able to post from anywhere.

Any suggestions or tips would be welcomed and truly helpful ☺

My new painting… Fresh stART – Fiat lux – Et la lumière fut


Fiat lux - Et la lumière fut

Fiat lux – Et la lumière fut

Fiat lux – Et la lumière fut. The latest of the Firework collection. Up for sale. Linen canvas 100/120 cm.
This painting is about second chances, fresh stART.
It speaks about new beginnings, a privilege sometimes given to few…
(unless we make a conscientious decision)
The under-layer splashes seep through a fresh heavy layer of paint.
My paramount goal was texture & color in this project.
The explosive relief may be interpreted as life’s energy and the chaotic movement belonging to the stage (a fraction) before major changes.
Colors are intense here, lighter shades relevant to creation, light after void, order after chaos.
Please scroll down for close-ups.

I would like to take this opportunity to announce the grand opening of my Etsy shop.
https://www.etsy.com/shop/LifePaintings2015?ref=hdr_shop_menu
Your visits would be very much appreciated.
Let the word go round our amazing community.
My apologies for going to my reader so rarely… Between family, life & the beauty of working in a creative sphere,
I find time scarce.
I don’t dare make promises as I have found myself in the impossibility of keeping them 😉

Wishing all of you a perfect spring season!

Fireworks. Linen canvas 100/120 cm.
This is a brand new painting of mine based on a photo shoot I took a few years back on new year.
On the second photo, the painting is just finished & is drying off.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your kind likes & comments, without your constant encouragement I wouldn’t be here, on this blog today, showing you my work, I probably wouldn’t have persevered!

This time I used extra strong gel medium differently so as to produce a high relief for wave movement.
It wasn’t easy but was very happy with the result.
Wishing all of you a great week 🙂
