a little bit of goodness for CHRISTMAS ...

well, tomorrow my family and i leave for Sydney to spend christmas with my sister, her hubby and her brand new baby girl (along with my folks) ... 
WOW, it is going to be awesome:)
but, before i leave you all i thought i would share with you what i have been working on over the past few weeks.
christmas collage
i have been at work on some new collage pieces. all of these have been on 30cm x 30cm canvases or boards and i must say...i have LOVED the chance to "get messy" with the paper and glue again. this particular image above is a close up of a section of a completed piece entitled "christmas collage"....getting me into the whole christmas spirit xx

owl art charm for walpole markets
these new art charms come in 1" and 1 1/2" square. they are reproductions of my original painting entitled "owl magic" which i sold at my recent Art Trail Exhibition in walpole. a very lovely local lady now has the beautiful original (70cm x 100cm) hanging in her bedroom to keep watch over her at night. the original painting was admired so much i have decided to bring her to life in my latest range of art charms. they will be available for sale at the Walpole Market on Saturday 31st December 2011, in Pioneer Park. i hope to see some of you there :)

beginnings - original acrylic on canvas
today, i have completed a new comissioned work and OH BOY, has it been a challenge. the lady ordered a piece that echoed the colour palette of a previous painting of mine entitled "journey" and i did find it a whole new experience working within guidelines of size, colour and pattern. whilst i did enjoy the process i must say that letting it all "flow' and seeing what evolves is far more rewarding! but im am certainly not complaining as it is such an honour to have someone ask you to create an original piece especially for their home. i will deliver it tomorrow before heading off on holidays and i must say, i cannot wait to see it hanging in it's new home in Denmark !!
well, that is all until 2012 folks....yes, that's right. next time i will be blogging it will be a NEW YEAR. i certainly hope you all have a fantastic christmas and a fun-filled and joyous new year...until then...enjoy the "season to be jolly" xoxo
