Auction Action. July 8, 2016 23:53

This week I'm popping a few paintings up for auction! The first one up is "Fragile Beauty". This is one of my favourites.

The auction starts at $1 so everyone is in with a chance to bid. You can go to the auction HERE.

I'm currently working on a painting that was initially going to be a "sugar skull" style girl on a lime green background. Once I started painting her though, I stood back and all I could see was the artist Wyanne - which is rather bizarre actually because I haven't watched her videos or read her blog in quite a while. She's great though - very inspirational! So now I can't shake that out of my head, and I've decided to make it a portrait of her. Hopefully when it's finished it will be good enough to gift to her!

In between some of the bigger paintings I'm working on, I've been having fun painting some little ACEOs (collectable art trading cards). Tonight I popped this one up on eBay starting at $1 (with free postage within Australia). It's called "Sparkle Seahorse" and it's actually quite sparkly! The photo doesn't really do it justice.

It's school holidays and we currently have one of my little cousins staying with us also, so much of the day is playing, setting up activities and making/cleaning up food and throwing in some painting where I can. I wouldn't have it any other way though. Next week is back-to-school and it will be eerily quiet!
