Busy Week!!!

I have been very productive this week and even started a new painting. I'm not sure what I'm going to call her yet but I think it will be lady?
In another few days I should have her finished? I have just started using oils on top of the acrylic so it may take a bit longer for me to wait until the oils dry.

Last night I finally updated my gallery in my website so now it has a better range of my work in there. I have been wanting to do it for ages but being a mammoth job I put it off, like you do. I would still like to put descriptions of all the paintings but that will be another time.

I got stuck into uploading videos onto youtube that was fun. I have been playing around with my digital camera but there is something wrong with it so the clips come out all jolted I'm going to try and get it fixed soon.

I have been trying to find a ride up to Auckland this weekend and thought I had it sorted but the person has already gone so I might just have to wait and go up with the next change I get. It would be great to go and catch up with all my mates.

I went for a beautiful walk the other morning with Ralph and I captured the early morning colours. It was beautiful!!!!!! I love the crisp air in the mornings.

Our new addition to the family is doing well! He grows so quickly!!!! Vanessa is totally besotted with him. He sleeps most of the time so I don't get much time with him at the moment but I am looking forward to watching him grow into a strong and happy man. Just like the other kids. Ness really makes beautiful children!

My message for the day was: The pleasure you seek is attained the instant you allow yourself to enjoy the gift that is already given to you.

My Angel Card: Mystique

"Keep charging ahead, and don't take no for an answer. Expect miraculous solutions to appear."

"You are on the right path! Although it might seem to take a lot of time and effort, keep up the good work. You are definitely making progress toward your intended outcome. Sometimes flexibility is called for when you're working toward an aim. But in this instance, you need to stay firm in your conviction. Compromise will only water down the Divine plan that you're manifesting."

"Resist the urge to bend, or to please others. In the end, these individuals will be pleased by the outcome. You're following a Divine course, and others may not be privy to the same vision that you're following. Do your best to explain this vision to the others involved, but don't feel the need to defend your actions. Look at my picture. I am coming out of the darkness and into the light. So are you. You know what you're doing, and we in Heaven are here to back you up fully!"

Art Every Day Month Day 7 - Encaustic Wax

I'm really enjoying blogging again, it's been years since I have written everyday. I used to do morning pages before I got pregnant, I have heaps of books full of my dribble. The Artist Way by Julia Cameron got me into the morning pages! Every artist should own a copy of that book! 
I was talking to a friend yesterday and she wanted me to order her a box of encaustic wax. I haven't done any encasutic for such a long time, so today was the day to dust off the cobwebs and get melting. 
Here are my 2 creations for the day...

I have been looking for my cutter cause this card is too big and I just can't find it anywhere. 
Here are some other pieces I have done, in the past with encaustic wax.

This one was done with the iron on card.

Finally life is back to normal

Today is the first day in nearly 2 weeks that we have back our happy little singing girl. Nothing worse than a sick child! It makes you realise, on days like today, how lucky we have it.
I got a lot done today I started painting a series of affirmations paintings for our house. It will be nice to be surrounded in positive words when we need them. Called into the recycling centre and the supermarket. Gave shit to plummer Dan when he walked in on me cleaning the shower and chatted to the builder who is fixing our bathroom floor. Caught up with Chanz, Mum and Lyn. Got my 4 artist trading cards ready to send off 2mora for the next trade. Bought a Norfolk pine for our Christmas Tree, potted it in a lovely pot and decorated. I also split up one of my plants that I have wanted to do for sometime now but had ran out of potting mix. I got a shock when I drove into the Springvale Garden Centre it's FLASH! They have a kids play area, I have never been to a garden centre with a playground in …
