Lush My New Original Portrait Painting

It's been nearly 2 months since my last post and I finally have a new portrait painting to share! Summer has been a really busy time with my online sales and with my three children home for the summer holidays! We did manage to escape all five of us to the mountains and the sea for two blissful weeks and for the first time in two years I shut up shop and left work behind!
Now with the my batteries recharged and the house back to myself during the day I have picked my paintbrush up and enjoyed some time to just paint. Quiet and uninterrupted!
So here is Lush my new mixed media portrait painting on wood (size 11.5" by 17") you can find it in my etsy shop!

Pink Bird Tree Painting

Just finished this new Pink Bird Tree Painting the varnish is still drying! I have listed it in my Etsy shop. It's very pretty and girly with some whimsical rather long legged birds!
I have been trying to get more original paintings done lately but find it hard to find the time! I wish I had the opportunity to paint every day but it's more like once or twice a week if I am lucky! Sometimes balancing home life, motherhood and my art is a real juggle but I am blessed to do something I love for a living!

Horse Dreamer Fairytale Painting on Wood

Horse Dreamer New Original Painting on wood just finished yesterday! I was nervous doing this one because I loved the sketch and was worried that once painted I would not like it as much but I love the colours and I am happy with the final result. The original is available in my etsy shop!
Other than that the weather here has turned cold and I miss the sun! We have planted tomatoes, strawberries, aubergines, courgettes, a raspberry bush, an apple tree and a plum tree! So I am hoping for the sun to return soon!

New Fairy Collage Painting!

Here is my newest painting just finished it yesterday. The title is Forest Fairy, the original has been sold but it will be available as a mounted print on wood or as a paper print in my etsy shop. It was quite a challenge painting the fawn, the rabbit and the owl but I'm pleased with the end result.

New Fairy Painting - Scarlet

I'm very excited about this new painting, it was done on paper and I am going to hold on to the original for now. I first sketched the fairy and the flowers and trees on paper and then I was going to transfer them onto wood as I would normally do but I decided to just go ahead and paint them on the paper. Well I ended up painting and adding detail until 2am in the morning not being able to stop! I'm really pleased with her, she is available as a print mounted on wood in my etsy shop! I have named her Scarlet!
