something creative



(two of the new paintings)


I have been a little obsessed with sewing the last week and it has been a struggle to get on with painting.  I really enjoy the feeling of something creative like that taking over my whole mind, so much fun.  I have made a few more moopies and a few new ones as well, will post them soon.

I feel I am in a bit of a painting block at the moment... could be my creative side is being taken up by other things?  But anyway, I think it is good to start with what I know (like these above) and often new things will come from this.  I have had an idea in mind for a while to do some New Zealand themed girls... the idea is still evolving, but hopefully I will have it sorted soon.

I have heard from the Livewires company and they said they found my work very interesting and will get back to me next week as not all their staff are back at work after their holidays yet.  So that is promising I think?  Will keep you updated.

I have had a few people late last year interested in purchasing an original, if you were one of these people please email me katherinequinn@xtra.co.nz and I can send you some images of what is available... thanks.

I don't know what it is but I find it so relaxing to look at your girls. The painting I won is in my bedroom and I look at it every night and every morning from my bed and just love it to pieces!
