my creative space

i have been making a print of this painting today. and making a dodgy packet vanilla cake! i've had a craving for chocolate cake for weeks {probably started around the time i stopped having chocolate + coffee etc} and i have a throat virus/cold . . . so a little cake and baby steps with the huge long list of things i want to do!

to see more spaces or to play too, visit kirsty. happy creative space day!

p.s. i have made progress with the skirts, i just need a bright day for photos. not so much progress with my display photos ~ the paint looks great as a background, but the lighting issue is very tricky as usual!

I am intrigued by the making a print off a painting thing. It is a gorgeous painting, almost Japanesey looking.

Great painting. It looks like stitching. Is there any actual stitching or just the illusion?

am i right in thinking this is a slightly different style to your other work

I can relate with your pain on waiting for a brighter day for photo shooting.... But then again, we are talking about Melbourne's unpredictable weather hey!

I like your work btw... :)

I saw you in the etsy forums and I'm so glad I stopped by your blog. I love this piece - I've been fascinated with dotted lines lately and I really like how you're layering them - it's given me a bit of inspiration.

I really like the art and marketing interviews too!

I can't wait to explore your blog a little more.

wonderful blog! .. glad I found you on Etsy :)

Feel better! And good luck with lighting - I think I must take about 30 photos to get one usable one (which still needs tweaking in photoshop).

just wanted to say thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment! i especially love meeting folks from australia - we fell in love with it after visiting last year :) and i have to say, your artwork is quite lovely, wow!

Belinda Saville said...

A very interesting painting...I thought it was stitching when I first saw it. It looks like a marshland scene to me, light bouncing and reflecting off the water, with red reeds making a bold statement in the midst.

That's what I love so much about art...everyone sees something different!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, you are welcome anytime :-)

All the best,

thanku for your sweet comments :)

it's all paint! inspired by stitching and texture!

this is a little different in style, but i guess i have a few different styles on the go! sometimes i wonder what would happen if i had more time to work!
