the constant creative urge...


(everything depends on how near you stand to me)

Ok... so the painting from my last post has been saved from the reject folder, I have added a few little details and I am quite happy with it now.  One of those happy accidents that happen every now and again.  It has actually given me inspiration for the next set of works for my exhibition.  So thank you for all your kind comments, they saved it from the dreaded folder.

I have nearly finished the front of my winebox so I will take pictures when it is completed, and will probably post them next week.

I think I have said this before (probably a few times) but when my creative side is being fueled and all is going well, I am a happier person then when its not.  It amazes me how strong this is and sometimes it is just scary how much my world revolves around it.  It is a hard thing to explain (the constant creative urge)... it's something I have felt for as long as I can remember.  The need to have my mind and hands busy with making things, turning blank pieces of paper into new little worlds of their own.

These girls above are actually looking a little sombre... I might need to work on their lips.

I will have some good news and a giveaway at the end of the week so stay tuned.

gorgeous gorgeous! I love their soulful expressions, and the colours are so lovely - I would love to know how to get those beautiful soft muted tones - I always find my work is so bright! When sometimes I would just love to change that - but dont know how!!! Have a great week!

LOVE this latest piece. It is so calming and peaceful.

I am feeling more and more like you have described, and if I am not creating in some way, I feel a little lost. I'm guessing it is a good thing!! Lol :)

I know what you mean; I have the same thing with my writing. If I can't write I go a bit mental. I think it's a pretty common phenomenon among creative types.
