Good evening all!
What a joy this one was to paint!! And it has so much texture and stuff going on! I think its among one of my favourites Ive done in a while. To me she looks so peaceful and calm, which was something I was trying to create in this piece. My life at present feels very chaotic with so many personal issues going on, so this piece makes me feel very calm, even though it has bright colours, I feel at peace when I look at it! It sold today (which is fantastic!!) but I will miss her :)
She measures 18 x 24 inches.
Mediums used were acrylic paint, paper, glitter glue, beads, fabric and ink.
Farewell my island girl….

Good evening everyone....
In the last couple of weeks, Ive had the opportunity to do a couple of larger pieces for two different people. The really large piece (36 x 36 inch) is still making its way over to the UK and hopefully it will arrive any day now, safe and sound. The other piece (24 x 36 inch) was for a lady who lives more locally. Both are mixed media on canvas (acrylics, ink, glitter glue, fabric, beads, rhinestones and a touch of paper).
Above is the 24 x 36 inch mixed media on canvas.
This is a close up photo :)
Here you can see the side sparkly view and use of metallic paint with also glitter.
Above is the larger piece of artwork (36 x 36 inch) travelling over to the UK.

Good evening everyone....I have been busy making these cute little 6x6 inch mixed media on canvas paintings. These are done in acrylic paints, paper, ink, glitter glue and buttons. Some of them have inspirational words on them also. Which one is your favourite? :)
