When Days turn into Nights…

People ask me how I manage to fit painting into my already busy life…I work fulltime, have 3 wonderful children, my husband and I own Deepweb.co .nz, a web design company, I write poetry, I walk as a hobby, I practice Taekwon-do and last but not lest….I paint….actually I do heaps of other stuff too.

It is called making the most of my life and every minute I get to grace this earth…

I paint and write into the deep night, one does not begat the other….it seems that when I have a writing binge I am bearly able to paint and the other way around…at the moment it is painting that takes the fore…Friday night painting finished at 1:15am on Saturday morning…I lost track of time.

I become amazed and delighted at what appears on the canvas. My biggest issue is that I have to keep my fulltime job to pay for my canvases and the art workshops…

I have yet to take more paintings into Coco, I am enjoying them on my own walls and I am inspired by them too.   I am not sure I want them to languish in a cafe/gift shop out of my view…I will have to get over myself sooner rather than later.

These are the two paintings from Saturday’s efforts…

Feather - My First
Feather - My First

I am delighted with the Feather, it appeared unexpectedly and just looked amazing.

The “Anemone Sunset” was created using the blending techniques that Nemesh taught me and my imagination…

I can’t wait until the next workshop…21,22 February 2009, at “The Quarry Arts Centre”…the class is almost full but I understand that are a few places left…

Anyhow….my days quickly roll into nights and the nights are just not long enough…I love painting!!!
