…listen to Sunshine on my Shoulders John Denver while you view, and relax :)

This is “Lady Sunshine”

She spreads sunshine wherever she goes…it’s always a pleasure to have a friend like Sunshine in your life…..spreading love, joy, peace, harmony…happiness

Sunshine began as a simple pencil drawing on sketch pad as most of my work does these day, I then photographed her and worked the painting up in Photoshop CS4, the painting took 7 hours and many layers…the drawing took around 4 hours. I drew the city buildings in the background in photoshop too.

Sunshine is my favourite work of all time so far…there’s just something about her, that makes me smile – just like in the John Denver song ….

“Sunshine always makes me smile……” and if you listen to the lyrics of the song by JD i mean every word of it, it’s like a song that gets to the very heart of how I feel

I’ve lately been uploading a work a day for the past week or so…but that is going to slow down soon, it’s just that i had a backlog of drawings i really wanted to paint and present on redbubble… i’ve got a lot on next week what with Mother’s Day, etc… and I might take a little break, but I’ll still be around tomorrow I’d say :)

    when i think you cant possibly produce any works better than the last there you go again……….there is something about her like you say,
    she exudes…wisdom…serenity….peace…a sureness in the knowledge of who she is….

  • thank you so much Robyn, that means a lot cos i am trying really hard to outdo myself and improve and learn new things, i think it’s the first time i’ve drawn freehand in photoshop with my tablet for the buildings and i’m always just trying to think of new elements to enrich the work…i’m sooooo happy you said that…big hug for you! xx
