New Painting – The Cracks – Acrylic on paper

Hello everyone! I hope you are well.
I’ve been managing to work on quite a few new paintings and paper projects recently, its so nice to be in the flow of creating again, it took quite a lot of effort to get back on track but hopefully it will be a smooth and interesting ride from here on in.
This painting was inspired by a Life Book 2018 lesson, I love the texture in the painting the curved forms and earth tones. I can’t say i’ve ever made a painting like this before but would like to make more!

Hello – Some news

Hello, I’ve been sharing news of some great things that have been happening in my life over on Instagram and Facebook, so thought I’d also share those posts here :)

Firstly!! As you may know I am a bit of a secret gamer.. lol I started playing games in 2014 and was instantly hooked on The Elder Scrolls V – Skyrim, I then went on to play Mass Effect 1-3, Dragon age 1-3, The Elder Scrolls Online, The Witcher and so on.

These are all massive RPG games that you can easily sink 100 or more hours into without ever getting bored. So when one of my favourite games developers Bioware release a new IP called Anthem I jumped straight on it.

What I didn’t expect was them to feature me on International Women’s Day in their Twitter stream. It really meant a lot to me and I’m hoping that Anthem will go from strength to strength as it really is a fun game

Secondly – I was approached by a well known film company who wanted to use some of my work in a soon to be released feature film directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, Slumdog Millionaire) and written by Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Love Actually) whoooo!! its sooo exciting!!

This came completely out of the blue and I cant wait to see the finished film!!

And lastly! I managed to reach over 200 sales on my Etsy shop this March.. this has been a total ride and all I can say is “Follow your dreams” because “Everything is Possible” :)

Mixed Media Painting – Temple of light

Hello, how is everyone today? I hope you are doing good!!
I recently finished this painting that was inspired by a Life Book lesson by Effy Wild! Although it looks nothing like the actual lesson…

shine your light temple of light painting art joanne seale

I wanted to show how we all have an inner light that can either be hidden, or we can let it shine brightly, enhancing and illuminating our daily lives whilst also shining on the lives of others.
Sometimes this can be scary as we can be afraid of opening our true selves to the world for fear of disapproval, however one of my teachers, the amazing Lisa Nichols!!

Put it so perfectly when she said, ‘When your light shines too brightly for some people, just hand them a pair of sunglasses” I love that sooo much. :)

Here is a quick speed paint of the artwork which was originally posted on my instagram here https://www.instagram.com/joanneseale/

Life Book 2018 YAY** All Change Is Good

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 :)
