Before and After...

Firstly, a very happy mothers day to all you mummies out there. What a wonderful job you all do at nurturing those souls, young and old under you care - if I had a medal for you all today then I would definitely give you one!
The troups arrived yesterday - yipee! Two rays of sunshine in the forms of my mum and dad popped in and will be here for a week. I had two of the best mothers day presents today (apart from my beautiful cards from M and T)... My dad washed my car for me - thankyou thankyou thankyou! AND - then he took the kids to the beach for nearly two hours and I completely overlooked all the jobs that needed doing and painted! I've never had the chance to paint in the daytime before - to paint without fighting fatigue and it was such a treat!
So here's the outcome of today's effort titled "Shine" I've also posted the photos of the canvasses before I morphed them into their final pieces just to see how different they are from the originals. Have I mentioned how beautiful those Luminarte paints are? I think so - but I begs rehashing. Hunt some down if you can - they leave a beautiful texture on the surface not unlike traditional ochres. So lumpy and sandy looking - but shiny and glimmery at the same time.
So what do you think? I like em!

Thanks for stopping by my little part of the world,

  2. Ooooh, love that Shine one Donna. Yippee - do you hire Grandad out?? (just kidding!). How wonderful to have some much-needed time out - just for you. Make the most of it while you can.... Will pop in soon with catalogues and other bits and bobs.

  3. Really I like your work, nice combination of color and forms, interesting design; armonic but dinamic, and high quality, congratulations from Mexico.
