Acrylic on Canvas Board….this is a portrait, I did a while ago, of my husband…

So much is taken for granted on a daily basis and I want to bring to the forefront colour, vibrancy, frequency, pensiveness, wonder, reflection, action and energy through my passions.

My art is how I interpret the world around me, it is how I see this life – a palette of unbelievable colours and a sea of energy. The potential every living thing has and the knowledge that everything is a manifestation of a Divine essence is, in itself, pure magic.

    Cute hubby; neat painting of same. It’s almost .. hmm .. well, okay, I don’t know whose paintings it reminds me of, but, of someone very, very famous. grr I hate it when my fingers are working overtime and my brain’s gone on strike.

    Anyway, I like the style.

  • Boy is he cute! We’ve been married for 12 years and he just keeps getting cuter…lol…don’t worry, today it feels like my whole body has gone on strike ;)

    This style was very influenced by one of my favourite artists, Van Gogh – perhaps he was the one you were looking for (if not just go along with it…please……)
