Check Fish

I initially spoke about this image in a rather popular post called Teasing Composition, and that feels like a while ago now. So it really was high time that this painting got itself finished – and seeing as paintings don’t get finished on their own I needed to give it a helping hand. And you know …

Why do I/You paint?

Why do I paint? I’ve often asked myself this. Why do I create paintings, drawings and write? It’s mostly addiction. Not to the process of creating itself, because I personally have taken breaks from the creative process before. But addicted to that strange and often horrible feeling afterwards.

Works in Progress

I wasn’t intending to blog today, but seeing as the internet has gone off yet again, I shall see what I can come up with to write. The day has only really just started – I am expecting a visit from the Health Visitor so they can check up on how Marcus is doing; which …

I found a new technique for doing backgrounds rather than just gradient style painting and I admit, I am rather thrilled …

The new start

I am currently standing at the forefront of the biggest change in my life. I am six weeks away from giving birth (Roughly, as we can never really predict these things exactly) to my first child. I am in a stable and very loving relationship with my husband – we’ve been together for nearly 9 …
