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 ☺

Celebrating the beginning of 2017 with a new painting… The Hand tree.


hand tree 2017

125/75 cm.
The idea is to have the hand prints of your children or grandchildren professionally made.
The decor is suited to the beautiful world a child should find himself in.
Colorful and surrounded by nature.
Some of the materials I used are recycled products I plan for my art.
Each hand hangs off a cloud.
On the left corner, you’ll notice a clothes line with pegs attached & two red strings from which twin baby hands might hang from…
Please scroll down for close ups, they will show you more details.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of my followers and visitors for the likes comments and support since the opening of this account.
P.s
My excuses for the reflection on the photos, I find it always an issue with darker backgrounds.

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.

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!
