Well...it's a new year.
Unfortunately I've written this wonderful post and mysteriously managed to delete its contents...how? it's this magic I seem to have that comes out of nowhere. Honestly, I'm so horrible with computers I just have to laugh at how some of these things happen to me. I however, do realize I really like my Mac. I've got so much to learn and last year I avoided it like the plague.
Speaking of last year. I know I haven't been around. it was a huge transitioning year for me, we moved, my son started school for the first time. I simply needed time to process and just "be".
Now that I'm settled and getting used to my son in school and him absolutely loving it, I feel like I can explore...start "arting" again. I'm not going to make any promises of posting lots (see all my previous posts?...yeah) but I will try to post what I can. I'm going to paint more and experiment with new mediums! I also want to get out more! the world is such a beautiful place!.
So...Hello 2017! lets see what adventures you throw my way:)
It's a new year!
Yes, I know...we are already the second month in. I'm not going to deny I'm horrible about blogging but when you've got an energetic three year old asking for you every second of the day it gets hard to prioritize blogging when you have so much painting to do...or sleep, sleep is good.
However, I promise to make a much better effort to blog and show you my painting process, reviews on supplies and just life in general.
I'll be posting some updates soon about shows, Galleries and auctions so stay tuned:).
Well, still no computer but it's getting there.
I'm slowly trying to get back into the swing of things, regardless if I have a fancy new computer or not. yes, a computer would make things faster and a tad easier, haha.
I've been working on quite a few things as of late. So many artworks at one go but nothing to really to show for, probably annoying for you and very annoying for me. I've been so tired, I'm still a full time Mom until Ro goes to school which is still a while yet. As soon as my husband gets home it's dinner and off to work...not much family time there. It has really worn me out. I need to find a happy balance. Not to mention these last couple of weeks has been very scary health wise as I found out I have another blood clot in my leg. not ideal is it? lots of doctors appointments for me, which eats up art and family time, not to mention the stress.
Even with all this I am crazy happy still and very much looking forward to the future. I'm much more positive these days and it makes me happy...I get to live the life I love. I get to spend my days with my son and paint. what more really could I ask for. I want to thank all of your for sticking with me and always supporting my work! it helps pay for the bills and put food on our table. It makes me do what I love! Thank you:)
This is my work in progress pictures for 'Feast for the Eyes' I know I've been getting lots of emails about how I do things, I will go more into the process when I get my computer. the top picture is my art table. usually I do not have this many paints out but I wanted certain colours from different brands. I'll be getting an empty palette soon to put my favourite most used colours in.
Here is my Work in progress for Frejya, she is not finished yet. My first oil painting. I've been having so much trouble with her skin! I love mixing skin tones and it's just a completely different process than when you use watercolours. As hard as I've been finding oils I've been absolutely loving the painting process!! I'm hoping to get her finished soon, so far its been taking me months!!.
I hope you've enjoyed this post. I'll be doing a lot more of these in the future.
Drive by posting! I have now opened a Nuvango Store! here you will find Giclee prints and fantastic products with my artwork on it. Go have a look, let me know what you think:) Faebyl Art Store
Sorry for the lack of posts. I'm without a computer and currently doing research on what to get next. So I'm hoping to be around more once I get my new Computer and figure out how to use it as i will be getting a Mac.
I have lots of fun news and new art for you soon though so check back:)
So I decided to make this page my Blog/News. I'm hoping I can keep this up and show you new works in progress and well, just my life in general.
I'm not a writer and I have a 2 year old who loves to get into everything. I can't make any promises but I will try very hard to post more in 2015!
Here are some of my last works for 2014.
