Love for process πŸŒΏπŸ’­πŸ–‹ In creating artwork, and actually all areas of your life, falling in love with the process is how you develop contentment, focus & patience, don't you think? Enjoying the practice means that the end results are just a happy consequence! ✨ "Everything we do and experience can be a means of fulfilment and enjoyment. Doing as nature does is to be in harmony with the way things are, to be attuned to nature's processes - to be, to feel and to think of one of the infinite manifestations of the universe" - Danvers 🌏

Picture from last year. I remember looking at this photo for the first time and feeling like I finally had some paintings that worked together and was proud of. The first year after taking up painting again after such a break I was all over the place - desperate to try out every idea and mark and every colour palette. I thought every finished painting looked like it was painted by a different person . I felt like the paintings in the photo were finally me. Even the old wooden floor is me , ( our lounge) rather than a slick white background - can't really do slick .

Man I looooove the high-res scans of my originals, they turn into the most fantastic prints. Working on a new range of imagery that will take all sorts of forms. So much fun!!!!

Hi πŸ‘‹πŸ» Just a wee note on commissions! If we have already talked please disregard this post! After lots of thought I have decided I won't be taking on any new commissions until March 2018. I have a very full schedule with @artinagarden coming up, plus a solo show @antlerpdx in the works too, amongst other things. I'm brimming with excitement about it all and want to thank everyone for their support so far πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• can't wait to share what's to come!

So, despite the fact I haven't quite finished my wholesale catalogue, I need to go find a JP tomorrow to certify a bunch of stuff for the big boy's college enrollment. The JP is at the mall... and I will have to walk past some of my fave shops. Would be so rude not to visit right? πŸ™Š

People have been asking about this and why I do it. It began as a #100dayproject last year and evolved from there. I was looking for a creative practice, something simple that I could commit to doing daily. Without adding to the brain fatigue I get from concentration since my concussion and which I could do even on days when my brain is really fatigued. I ended up doing two stints of 100 days last year and decided this year I'd do it daily for the year. Some days I wonder what I was thinking but some days I think I'd be lost without it. It's my practice.

Bit of a freestyle piece that I played with yesterday. I wasn't completely happy with what I had planned so I ground off the guide lines and this is what I ended up with. I guess I focused on really expressing the quality of the stone by allowing some light through the edges and revealing the tactility through the internal curves.

The Pink Terraces of Rotomahana were thought to be destroyed after the 1886 Tarawera eruption - but artists like Charles Blomfield thankfully captured the region on canvas - this latest auction includes two major works by Charles Blomfield of both the Pink & the White Terraces #pinkandwhiteterraces #rotomahana #charlesblomfield #importantandrare #importantandrareart #nzhistory #newzealandartist #nzart #sevenwonder #sevenwonders #parnell #pinkterrace #19thcentury #art #topographicalart #masterpiece #rotorua #8thwonderoftheworld
