ART - Jazz Quartet Part 2.

Almost finished this one I’m working on. It will be hung in a foyer so the colors will stand out well. I can’t wait to finish it! 🙂

Word Pop Art handpainted painting

I thought I’d do something a little different and do a word with a pop art styled background and a street art themed word.  To be honest, it made me wish I had an airbrushing kit to use.  But I eventually got it done by handpainting all of it except for the outlining, where I used Molotow Paint Markers (the best art markers in the world!!! 😀 )

Anyway, I hope you like it and to show the process from the beginning to the end, I’ve attached all of the pics so one can see the stages.  For me, the most frustrating part is waiting for the paint to dry.   Plus I paint from the right hand side of a canvas as I’m left handed, otherwise I end up smudging everything that I’ve just done.  *Sigh*  I guess it’s the same for a right hander.  Ah, the joys of painting huh!

This is a beautiful set consisting of 7 paintings that I did for a friend who is having a baby soon. It was inspired by a gorgeous matching patchwork quilt that Suzanne Block made.

I really love this painting due to the bright colours and I absolutely love the reef and tropical fish etc. It’s a real visual feast of colour. 😉

Children’s Castle painting for Children’s Hospital

Posted in Hand painted Children's Art - My Painting, Kids with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 6, 2013 by lollipop-designs

I just went for my annual checkup on my cardiomyopathy peri-partum last week at Monash Heart here in Melbourne.  Whilst there, I commented to my Cardiologist that I’ve begun doing art work for children and after taking a look at some quick pics on my phone (as you do, of course!) she said she would like to commission me to do a painting for the children’s section of Monash Heart.  

Of course I felt so excited about this, but, after getting home I thought about it some more.   After I had spoken to my Cardiologist, I was of the impression that they purchase the artwork to decorate the hospital Monash Heart section with donations given to Monash Heart itself. 

But, I decided that I would much prefer to donate a painting instead as my way of giving back to them for the wonderful care they have provided over the past 3 years.

I’m working on this particular painting of a castle with big sunflowers and of course “hearts” in a fairytale setting.  Here is what I have so far…. just have to add some hearts and some touch-ups here and there.  I will post another pic when it is finished. xoImage


My bunny rabbit with a carrot on a 40x40cm canvas in acrylics.

I’ve included the original sketch of the bunny too as I found myself staring at it for ages wondering what colours to do it in. Hopefully it turned out ok.
By the way, I’m not sure how I should be photographing these pictures. I’m guessing straight ahead would be better, so I will endeavour to do that to the others as they come along. But any feedback would be wonderful as I’m so new to this and have no idea what to do. 🙂

I think the heat is getting to me here as I meant to say earlier, please forgive my messy looking studio in the background.  I feel like I’ve got canvasses, completed and partially completed all over the place at the moment, not to mention, kids pics, kids art all over the walls from school.
