So I do portraits too.. but prefer my abstract Desert Marine Tropical themes..
Here is a close up sneak peek of a little section of my current work in progress. I'm so excited about where this is headed! It feels so right to be birthing this magic at this time of year after integrating everything from the Winter. I can't wait to share this one with you all!
Happy Spring Equinox/Ostara for those of us on the Southern Hemisphere 🌼💐🐝🌺🌱🌻
The flowers are blooming everywhere and the bees are happily buzzing around pollinating the flowers. New life is being birthed everywhere as the darkness of Winter is finally overcome by the light of Spring, until the wheel turns again.
"The spring equinox opens the veil between the physical and the spiritual so that a resurrection in our lives can be inaugurated. The keynote of this season is creation. It is the drive to move our lives upward, like a seed pushing forth out of the earth into the air. The Spring is the time when the creative powers we have been nurturing through the winter can be expressed to initiate a new world of opportunities for ourselves.” - @mysticmamma
I’m enjoying a Saturday at home cleaning, painting, pottering,studying and hanging out with my family. This acrylic and ink on canvas was an excercise in not overpainting a painting. An excercise in learning to stop and not get too tight and detailed and finicky... #abstractsrt #bower #ink #acrylic #abstractlandscape
Most of the time my expressions are fairly abstract and nature inspired, but sometimes my more comedic, quirky side comes out. I think it's the animator and cartoonist in me that needs to come out and play, and tell little stories now and then. I like when that happens.
I love when my characters look like they know something we don't know. They have little secrects that makes them giggle inside. Working with words in my artworks are sometimes fun too. Like small word images. In school I enjoyed typography and calligraphy and the sharpness of perfectly inked black letters. I'm positive that the black linework I often(and boldly) use in my paintings derives from that fascination.
My life is my art and art is my life. "I love you, she whispered" work in progress

I've felt the edge of life
Pulled under by the rip of ramifications
I've run my fingers through scar tissues
All wrapped around our decisions made based upon our temporary emotions
A fleeting moment
A first step taken on thin ice
Just like that
One crack eradicates the whole surfaces we stood on
One second the ice changes into a mudcracked desert
The next moment we're immersed in the unforgiving frozen environment of our consequences
Camped out for the day supporting a stall for one of my other jobs. Keeping myself busy with some small sketches.
