Spring Is on it Way

March is here and I am back with my latest works.
It is such a sweet place to be when you are riding in the flow, it may be while painting, or cooking or walking or even cleaning.

You can find that beautiful state of flow in so many activities, yet the state is unique, when you become one with the activity you are doing, such a beautiful place to be.


Below I have some colourful pieces, the first depict a garden beginning to bloom, as rain turns to sunshine, days lengthening and buds growing.

Spring is on its way, feel the energy and enjoy!






Colours are blooming and melting in this piece below where the storm has passed, the air is electric, day is ending and seasons are changing.


This one here below is so soft, it depicts a peaceful village walk, one early Spring morning, when the world is fresh and slowly rising.


And below it is the same picture but I added more layers of paint to have more depth. I like them both, the first one is the early morning and the second here below depicts an evening walk, shadows creeping and light slowly turning dark.


In this one I can feel the fertile Earth and the potential for growth, it has an Earth energy of possibilities and changes to come. I feel full of hope and expansion as I gaze at this.




Spring is such a delicate season, you can have a day like the painting above of sunshine and light with the first stirrings of warmth and then the next day can be like the painting below when Winter stands strong and cold again. Contrasts are very clear in this season, which holds such magic and transformation. A quiet dance between warmth and cold, between bare branches and first buds, between a deep blue sky and dark cold clouds gathering. A silent dance between the yin and yang energies, the slow waking up of nature and the first gentle whispers of light and warmth to come.



Enjoy this dance of cold and warmth, light and dark, feel the magic in your day and savour all the things you love to do. Light and peace to all!

Winter Dreams


Shadows creeping, as sun sets. The world turns mellow, as the bewitching hour sets in.


A winter dream of snowflakes falling on a cold winter's night. Of deep crimson sunsets, of cold and darkness and the warmth inside.


Snowy dreams somewhere in the depths of the forest one deep Winter's night.


The orange pink glow of Winter evenings touch my core. such beauty, such depth, Winter's magical light glows bright.


The Earth sleeps, nature stands still, all is quiet and at rest. Winter's peace has depth.


Flowers will bloom again, they are getting ready, life is going to burst through but now tis the time to  dream and rest, slow down like all of nature in Winter.

Christmas Magic


Tis well the month of December so here is my xmas show! A few of the pieces below are inspired by Andrea Gomoll's creations on her Youtube channel where she has an artsy xmas advent calendar and there are four pieces below that I followed her on, she is a great artist, very inspiring!!







Winter truly sets in with these pieces below, the air is icy cold, can you feel it?




And who doesn't love those sweet red robins, I love spotting them out doors!

Winter winds howl and the great North inspires much magic and beauty.
Skies that glow and trees that sway, as snow falls thickly all around.

Wishing you all much peace and joy!

Winter


Hello and welcome back to my creative corner.
A couple of weeks ago I had a creative spurge feeling wintery and prepared some seasonal cards.


I am greatly inspired by the grand North and Winter time. The sky is so beautiful at this time of year when on a sunny day you get those glorious twilight pink skies melting into turquoise blues before dimming to black, what a show!!



It won't be long now until we start seeing christmas trees popping up here and there.
Decorations are getting put up all around to prepare for the season.


I just love the pink skies! In front of my home we have a beautiful forest that I love to gaze at and especially love the shadows and colours as the day ends in Winter and dusk falls.



Below is another card from my daily deck. This one is picked often and reminds me to ground and find my centre, breathe, do some yoga and connect with that universal energy.




Light and love to you all!

Winter Cards


Hello and welcome back to my creative corner.
I am busy making little Winter seasonal cards and have been inspired by Shayda Campbell's youtube channel again for these first 3 pieces.



This little house below is somewhere deep in the forest where the little folk live. The November light is rosy crimson as the sun sets and the shadows slowly creep up. The wind is blowing and there is a first flurry of snowflakes.
Inside the the little folk keep warm and enjoy creating and telling stories by the fire.


Below is another one of my daily cards I pick from my deck. Today I picked an energy card, it is similar to last week's strength one, with its red colours of energy that give me a push in the right direction. Sometimes movement helps to pick me up, Qi Gong is a beautiful energetic practice I enjoy and reiki is another beautiful ritual I do every day sending to all those in need. 
Connecting with that universal energy feels beautiful and brings me the energy I need for my day.
Sending light to all here, thanks for your visit!

Entering the dark time of year



Hello and welcome to my art corner this week!
 I have squeezed in some art blogging time to share some of my latest creations. The above is a journal piece, where the flow helped my thoughts still, this lady in blue came to soothe away my worries and helped still my mind.


Below I have two pieces inspired by Autumn colours and tutorials taken by Shayda Campbell youtube page

 




I relaxed and enjoyed the process of being guided with my water colours by Shayda Campbell to make these pieces and since this is a favorite time of year I loved the theme of Autumn. This snowy owl felt very peaceful and quiet and reminded me how Winter is just round the corner now.


Here are some more wintery houses as I played with a few watercolour marks then added doodles and looked for shapes!


This piece below is a canvas work, again it is full of the cold weather to come and a celebration of the dark time of year. Full moons are another favourite of mine so this magnetic moon popped up to illuminate this little cottage one magical Winter's night.



The snow is falling gently, all is still and quiet, such peace!



A little mushroom house hidden in the deep forest. The little folk keep warm as the first snows fall.


Finally, below is one of my cards I picked from my guidance deck, reminding me to be strong! Sometimes we have hard days, sometimes there are challenges but we can always find strength and a force that keeps pushing us forward even through those darker days!
