Beginning my biggest “inkie” artwork.

Standard

Finally I have made time to start this new art project. It is going to be a challenge as it will be my biggest hand drawn “inkie” design (actually 3 interlinked designs) combined  with mixed media and vibrant colour on canvas.

I have to admit, though this is daunting, I am so damn excited to get started.  I have had ideas and images for this piece circulating in my head for a while and lately, it has ramped up so much it is like a hurricane.  I just hope that I can get those ideas out onto paper and it looks like what I want it to look like.  It is the feeling I really want to translate onto paper, the images will change I know and hopefully morph into something that projects the essence of what I want.

So here are a couple of pics of the prep design sketch.

My first arty giveaway on Facebook

Standard

I am excited that my art seems to be connecting to people out there. It has been a GIANT leap of faith for me to share outside of close family and friends so thanks everyone for your support.

I have so many ideas growing inside that I feel like I am going to burst. It has been along time since I felt so alive with ideas, I love it!

Art is such a personal experience for the creator and the viewer. As such, not all art is appealing to every person. But knowing that my art which gives me so much whilst I am creating, can also make someone else’s heart sing is real buzz and inspiration to do and share more.

So please pop on over and like my Facebook page, leave a comment in my “Giveaway’ post and share my page with your friends to be entered into my art giveaway when I reach 200 “likers”.

Cheers from your buzzy, rambling arty blogger Rob xxxx

Inspired but exhausted

Standard

I went on my first artist retreat last weekend. 3 amazing days and long nights of creativity, laughter, learning and absorbing it all. We stayed at Norah Heads Lighthouse and the views were amazing.

Being on the coast we naturally had an ocean theme for our art journals.
These are still works in progress but I am really happy with them so far.

Looking forward to finishing them and binding this journal together.

Well hello fairies

Standard

I believe that fairies live in my garden, especially around my Dad’s roses bushes that now grow here. As a child I would build fairy houses in the front garden, gathering fallen (OK possibly shaken fresh off the bush but don’t tell Dad) rose petals for their beds. I spent hours playing with my fairy friends.
Now it seems some are coming back to play again ….
