The moon was a watercolour I produced years ago.
It was still stretched on the panel, as I left it.
I sat here with a new painting surface, wondering what to do, my eyes drifted over to the Moon watercolour..
Once I decided to use the Moon watercolour, the painting idea just all came together.
Several factors in the Moon & Stars artwork, are new for me: the red, my method of applying the background acrylic in order to achieve the texture, the moon & cat.
It was inspired by the red polka dot collage paper – which is largely covered with paint, but it fuelled my imagination & I repeated the red dots (mostly with my fingers).
The red tiles in her top, just seemed to want to be painted… That sort of thing happens a lot in my artwork.
This is a mixed media painting. The surface is textured, and uneven, due to the collage elements.
Check out all the textures and patterns within this painting.
I love cats. It seems obvious, to introduce cats to my artwork.
I considered painting more detail in the cat, but felt it worked better in the painting, as a shape, rather than a centre of focus.
There was plenty of rubbing down with sandpaper to create the texture within this painting.
This painting is varnished & drying. It will be ready to post on Friday.

What else is happening with me?
Lots of new artwork in progress. YAY! My art is developing and becoming more of what it wants to be (as always).
I’m understanding my art more, and creating images that have been nudging at me for a while.
I have so many paintings I’m working on, all at various stages of progress.
Unfortunately, when I do ‘new’ things, it sometimes takes a while for me to figure out what next. If that makes sense?
I have to:
- Admit I don’t know how to proceed & get clear on what I don’t know.
- Wonder how can I resolve this.
- Enlightenment – I have to let the answer to come to me, without rejecting it, or deciding it’s weird, not my style, etc
- Do it! – which usually means side stepping my fears of: What will people think? Will that be too weird? Will I like it? etc
I will share these finished works, when I’m able.
My website updates are going slowly – they’re tied in with the new work I’m producing.
Unfortunately, I can’t rush these things, or I’ll regret it later.
I will tell you, I’m planning a Special Sales page on the new site, which will offer work at special prices as and when available.
The idea of offering a Sales section on my website, feels quite exciting for me.
It’s unusual (if not unheard of) in the art world.
Times are changing.
The archaic gallery/artist system is giving way to the Independent Artist on the internet.
New opportunities are available, for both Artists & Collectors of Art.
My days are filled with constantly dealing with depression and the side effects of my medication.
This is why I am generally quiet online these days.
When I feel ok, it’s time to paint/create/dream of new artworks.
Enjoy your new February Art Wallpaper, and have a lovely Valentine’s Day.
The New Year brings 12 New Monthly Art Wallpapers for Subscribers!I am offering a WHOLE year of Desktop Calendars to my Email Subscribers! Each month, I will send everyone on my email list, a link to download a new wallpaper.
Personally, I enjoy using artwork as wallpaper on my MAC and phone (usually, other artist’s).
I’m delighted when I look at my phone, or desktop. Thrilled that I can bring artwork that resonates with my heart, into life, whatever I’m doing.
I have several post-it notes and scraps of paper on the walls, in my studio – each with a meaningful reminder to myself.
After playing with the idea to offer a Monthly Desktop Wallpaper, I decided to combine these ideas -
My Artwork, a Monthly Calendar & an Empowering Message!
(psst… bonus for me, I get time playing with Photoshop, to produce this combo)

What else is going on with me?
Firstly, you may have noticed, the rest of my website is offline. I’ve learnt SOOO much about myself, my art and my dreams, in 2012 – it’s time for a major update! Exciting stuff, I can’t wait to share all, as soon as the site is ready to go live.
I’m taking positive action to make the most of 2013. To live my dreams fully (hence the message on the current Wallpaper). All very exciting. I’ll share what I’m doing to achieve this very, very soon! Expect another blog update this week ;-)
Personally? I’ve come through a year of adjusting to medication, working to achieve a level of stability in myself. I’ve made progress in that area, and learnt more about how this illness affects me. I know it is possible to achieve so much more. I’m positive about the future, myself and it’s potential for the first time in … forever, I guess. Dr’s appointment tomorrow may influence this for better or worse lol.
My cats – Schminkie & Green Tea are well. Both little men are cuddled up to me, as I write this.
Andrex, my mare, is naughty, cheeky and plump as usual. May she never change.
2012 brought me a new level of confidence and insight into my own creativity. Another great subject for a blog post – again, watch this space ;-)
Wishing you a Magical 2013!
