THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX !! THATS WHAT I WANT TO DO !!
I was told about a year agoe from a very talenet artist to go wild and think ouside the box... not to set limits on myself....
Do you know how hard that is.... we never do that in life do we ?? I dont know we stay in our safety zones.....then the other day I aquired this really funky painting from a Artist friend Rachel Burrell, it is of a wave like hill with a bike going over the top so I now have it on the wall
where I paint..... when I look at it ... it makes me think ..... think outside of the box !!!
Sorry I am really blathering !!! hehe.... so this next painting for me is a bit different....
I have been telling myself that I am no good on water scenes or beach scenes so have been far
to scared to try them so ..... here goes .... it will still have all my texture and 2d tissue rope etc... but will have water through the middle as in a beachy sort of scene.... here are some of the early picks of what I have done so far.... keep tuned as it has a lot more detail and 2d to go !!!
Hey Thanks for looking in on me .... Have a nice day :-)

WHEN LEAVES FALL

I am so suspicious !!

I am so suspicious ...its not funny.... when ever I get contacted from a gallery or in this case a company to use some of my paintings in there new catalogue I always think its a prank !!

I dont know ..... I keep getting surprised that someone likes my work enough I suppose !! to put in their Gallery or in this case use in their add campaign !!
Anyway the contract was signed and the paintings went up on Tuesday for the photo shoot yesterday and hopefully I will get my work back today !! In the end they took two paintings but not the Mt Cook one as it was too blue !! they wanted more of the rustic warmer colours so these are the two that they have used. It will be a few months I think b4 the catalogue will be out but when it is I will post here some of the pickies for you to check out !!

Cheers Donna :-)
