Hey all! I have finally started Life Book 2018!! YAY it was a delayed start whilst I launched my greetings cards and my new paper hospitality products.. so pleased I completed this!!
This bear presents a very good message that ALL CHANGE IS GOOD.. change can be hard especially when it takes you out of your comfort zone, and initially we want to put out heads in the sand and avoid all discomfort. But its amazing how the act of change itself can be really nourishing and fortifying in the long-term, especially when it is done in consistent little steps :)
Hello everyone, I hope you are well?
I finished adding a voice over to my painting ‘Inner strength’ which was completed a few months ago. This painting features a solar plexus chakra and in the video I explain why I have used this symbol.
I hope you enjoy the video :)
I finally finished the last of my Life Book 2017 lessons… this one is ‘Shine your light and embrace your shadow’ made with watercolour paints and pencils.
This painting started out as a Life Book lesson on Frida Kahlo, but it sort of went in its own direction. I will be aking a video to explain this painting in more detail in the next few days.
Hello everyone, I finished another Life Book inspired painting which I’ve named ‘From the Ashes’.
I painted it to explore the situations we can sometimes find ourselves in, when going through a hard time in life, we can feel destroyed, burnt to the ground in a pile of ash on the floor.
I wanted this painting to show how we all have the ability to rise from the ashes and renew ourselves, it takes courage, self-love and determination, but it is possible.
I talk about this more in the video linked below.
I finished another life book lesson! This painting represents finding peace within a busy urban environment, as some of you may know in 2015 I experienced a huge change in the peacefulness of my area when a concentrated flight path for Heathrow Airport was diverted to over my home with no warning!!! I am moving!!
I managed to complete a painting over xmas :) it was actually inspired by a Life Book 2017 lesson but looks nothing like it.
It features the solar plexus chakra ‘Manipura’ as I do believe that chakras exist, I’ve only drawn a guy about 3 times so it was a good practice :)
