YAY! 2 of my beautiful artworks on exhibition at Melrose House Cafe in Nelson, SOLD. I have now created these 3 gorgeous new pieces. Inspiration came easily for these works – the large green orb with folk inspired birds is my personal fave as I am in LOVE with lush green, pink & mustard.
Pink Floral Cluster – whenever I created a floral piece like this, it really is just a process of letting my creativity flow. I dont plan the structure of it, or what flowers Ill use. I focus on the balance of colours. I love not knowing what the outcome will be!
Tui – The kids and I were at our family bach and Tui kept swooping by us and landing on a nearby fig tree. I love the organic wonky leaf shapes of a fig so this idea for an artwork was handed to me, I simply had to notice it.
If you’re in Nelson, Melrose House is a must-visit spot. A perfect floral setting for a coffee!
This new pattern – birds & feathers – is now available as an art print and card on the Shop.
I am really enjoying drawing black & white designs at the moment.
I hope you all had a perfect weekend!
I don’t know what it has been but for the past 6 weeks I have had a complete art block. I haven’t even been able to pick up a paintbrush! I’m blaming the fact that it’s summer and all I want to be doing is lying the sun, walking on the beach, berry picking and eating ice-creams. Lots of ice-creams.
But….FINALLY (and I wouldn’t usually push myself to do art) I did push myself. I sat up in bed with The Mentalist on and said go Bec go. And this is what I produced – black and white birds and floating feathers.
I am soooo pleased to have my art mojo back!
I’m now working on a series of black and white collections like this one. Sometimes it’s good to push yourself and sometimes its not. In this case – it was! Yay!
How do you get your creativity back if you ever have a block?
