Latest painting process

I have just put the last of the paint on the canvas 


'SPIRITS CHAIN'

I've had fun painting this tortured woman. They say when you paint what you fear you paint your best work. 

Progress photos...







had a moment of sick of trying to fix the eyes that I started again



my little cutie was having fun with me in the studio





 




This is me the beginning doing a bit of research for my painting. I was so excited that I couldn't wait I went straight out to the studio in my dressing gown.

The card for the day is...


You are a perfect child of God, and every part of you is wonderful.  Your angels guide you to let go of negative self-judgments and to enjoy being you!

“You are much to hard on yourself,” your angels day to you through this card.  Although you enjoy having high standards, it’s important to view yourself through loving eyes.  Berating yourself only makes your spirit sink.  Self-improvement comes from a positive mind-set.

See yourself through your angels’ eyes, and you will see someone who is a perfect and holy child of God.  Although you have made mistakes in the past, there is nothing that you could have ever said, thought, or done that would change God’s love for you.  The angels see past your surface mistakes; they see the beating heart of God’s love within you.  They love you unconditionally, and they ask you to love yourself in the same way.

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...

Releasing my MADNESS! 

Getting more into it without distractions

Don't you love the texture wax makes!
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 …
