NEW Mixed Media Painting: Belief In Magic

Original (SOLD). Prints available in my etsy shop.

when i was painting these flowers, i really had to stop all of the negative talk that kept popping up in my mind.

i kept questioning these little characters. but having faith in the process made me follow my instincts and just let go so that the painting could emerge, layer by layer.

here's a bit of the creative process...

painting this piece was definitely a lesson in not being afraid to cover up what i'm not liking. 

i was loving my background from the start.

but the characters' faces took a lot of covering up to build into their personalities. 

Original (SOLD). Prints available in my etsy shop.

and the process really inspired their title and story...

just when the clouds move in, a super rainbow can open up the sky and renew your BELIEF IN MAGIC.


ps. if you're looking for a little extra inspiration, all of my online courses are now available as self-paced, instant access classes. and the classroom stays open until january 2014...plenty of time to paint.
