Terrible night-time time-lapse but This is not far off my actual speed tonight🌪😄Both my girls fell asleep at 6:30pm 😲and so I rushed into the studio and just needed to get some paint on the canvas. Wasn’t sure what to paint so I guess a self portrait it is (I may improve some of my features tho 🤷🏻♀️👩🏻🎨) and sorry it’s not the most riveting time lapse but for a gal who hasn’t painted in almost 2 months, getting a base coat down is a huge step, stay tuned for the journey🌻
New Workshop Alert! We have a Indigo & Shibori Natural Dye Workshop happening on Saturday, May 5th @ 9 AM. ⠀
The Japanese term Shibori comes from the verb root shiboru, which means “wring, squeeze, press." Our Visual Designer, Sylvr, will teach you the fundamentals of this historic pattern making process and how to make your own naturally dyed indigo and shibori scarf. Link in bio to reserve your spot!⠀
Good morning! What an absolutely glorious day we have! ☀️🌴⛱ the sky is blue, the sun is out! 😎
I'm indoors for next hour or so finishing packing the orders - thank you my lovely people! I love waking up to see few more orders coming in overnight 😍then it's a post run - yes, of you live in my town and you see this blond girl with ikea bags loaded with boxes - it's me! 🙋🏼😆 My studio is so messy after yesterday's painting and gold leaf everywhere that I'm having to use my dining room for packing 🙈
My plan is to finish few pieces that I've been working on today but the weather is soooo glorious that I might just ended up painting in the garden... not sure yet if that's gonna be an artwork or garden furniture 😆
Thank you for #widn @intaradesign 😊
@catty_davies @hardcastletowers @mybeautifulmuse if you wanna play ? 😊

I think I've jinxed it on Friday bragging on about how well it went with the first week of nursery... it hasn't been a smooth ride this week so far... lots of tears and sad faces ☹️ oh the joys of motherhood so thank goodness that I've got things to do... at the moment I've got 4 pieces of artwork on the go at the moment and none are finished🙈
I've been experimenting a lot with gold-leafing recently... and this morning I bought 2 new sets of paint so I might swing from dry pastel to mixed media even more 🖤
I spend most of my day yesterday literally dancing in front of canvas in my studio while drawing and listening to the music - now that's my kind a 'day in the office' -I'm feeling so happy and blessed! Eeek! Ok, enough of my mumble 😉
Introducing my new artwork available now in Lush Eclectic online Gallery & Shop (link in bio) 'Attitude Gold' is a new, limited edition artwork of a well-known, original 'Attitude' drawing. I use 24ct gold for customising each art print. The art prints are individually gold-leafed by me, creating a unique artwork.
WARNING! THESE ART PRINTS CONTAIN REAL GOLD! 'Attitude Gold' is available in A4 & A3 sizes. This is a limited edition run of 50 art prints (per each size). As with all my artwork, each art print comes with it's own, unique and numbered certificate.
As a trial, there is also a framed option available as seen on the picture.

This painting is called 'Forgotten Adventures' and nearly became Forgotten Painting! I started it in December but didn't finish for long. I knew that it needed extra work but run out of steam. This is my first painting with a vehicle as a star!⠀
'Forgotten Adventures', acrylic on canvas, 60x60cm⠀
She believed she could... so she did... cut a tree down and chop it into tiny tiny pieces so it fits into a green bin and I've got a nice pile of small logs for garden chiminea. A friend asked me if there is anything I can't do... 😆yeah, I can't hold a bloody pencil today and my hands are super sore 😫
Inspired by amazing garden patio makeover by @patirobins I'm determined to build something similar but just the prep of the space will take me few weekends... booo but hopefully it will be all worth it in the end.
It's a grey, rainy day here is Somerset so the candles are are, little one is having a snooze and it's a chill Sunday time with hubby 😊 sorry for the long post (of you are still reading it 😆) - just making up for being more quiet than usual on weekend 😜
