creative space . on wood






i finished the painting part of these this morning. i started them on saturday and felt disappointed with them. i'm happy with the first one, but i'm still not sure about the others! i get like that about things that i have to think about too much ~ when i start to question the elements and what they should be looking like, it feels like they are too self conscious and the spontenaitey slips away.
mmm. i kept at it and took some {dark melbourne} photos anyway! this is a classic piece of text from a vintage art mag that was left on my desk after making collages ~ it brought some humour back into the situation :)

i hope you are enjoying your creative space today!

I like the first two....what are they going to be? Brooches or mini wallhangings?

They are all so dainty and pretty. Are they brooches?

no no no. i love these. they are so very cute. i have to agree with june at noon - i love the last one best. i think it is the contrast of the darker green and the red.

These are beautiful. Even if they are not all your own 'cup of tea' (ha ha) they're so delicately drawn and sweetly painted, and they have broad appeal. Totally lovely.

Wow! I think they look amazing and I love the text in the background. I also love the inanimate nature of what you've chosen - lights, kettles. Just perfect
