New Painting * Rise From the Ashes

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.

Life Book 2017 painting – Finding Peace

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!!

Watch me paint this whimsical girl with her pet ginger tom cat

Hello again, I am back with the video of my sweet girl and cat painting, I’ve added text to explain the steps taken towards making her and set it to relaxing music.
This weekend will be a busy one for me as I have a number of different projects to catch up on and new ones to start too!!
More on this later.
Health and fitness wise I’ve managed to find a diet that suits me quite well, it’s not really a diet but more a way of eating that is in line with maintaining a healthy body.
I will also start going to the gym next week… hopefully.. lol I’ll let you know if I manage to do it. In the meanwhile I’m continuing with my youtube workouts!! :)

New Sweet Girl and Cat painting :)

I managed to finish another sweet girl and cat painting, I am much happier with this one as I feel I gave it my full attention whilst taking it very slowly, enjoying the process of painting and figuring out how I wanted her to look etc.
She came out a bit lighter in skin tone than I expected, I think ‘High Yella’ is the term used in the USA :D
My next painting will feature a girl wth much darker skin and possibly plaits.

Generally life has been good, I am really getting into my fitness and healthy lifestyle changes, I have been on a mission to see my abs!! but I have no idea if they actually exist :D I have cut quite a lot of things from my diet such as dairy, wheat (mostly), processed foods, alcohol (mostly) etc and have been doing a number of different youtube exercise routines… they are amazing!!! More on this in my next post!!
