Potting Along

I'm absolutely loving getting back into pottery. It was something I tried many moons ago! YIKES time flies!!
Now I have less time and more motivation, it's amazing how much you can achieve with that combination.






I'm trying out some under glazing just using blue and black, hopefully they'll fire well and then I can pop a clear glaze on them.
SO MUCH FUN!!

Finished


The Little Prince of Earth, Air, Fire and Water is complete and ready for the gallery.
I love the creamy softness of his skin and the contrast of the stress crackle on the background.
I hope he goes to a good home.

The Little Prince





The Little Prince of Earth, Air, Fire and Water.
I'm enjoying the sturdy strength of the horse/pony, the boy looks older than I had originally intended but I think he still looks innocent and ready for adventure.
I'm hoping to have gold leaf and silver leaf on the horn and crown, it's been a while since I've used it, so I hope it goes ok.




















Floral Rooster



FINISHED!!

I like the way this guy ended up, I wasn't sure about the white, stressed background but am now happy with the contrast.

Floral Rooster


 I'm having so much fun with this guy, I love the freedom of colours in this style. I think it's mostly done in watercolour but I'm trying it with acrylic on board.

My Art School

Richmond Art School

I'm so excited to be a part of this new art school, it's for both adults and children and is based in the gorgeous, historic town of Richmond, Tasmania, Australia.

It is located in the old school house behind St John's Catholic Church 




St John's (The Evangelist) Catholic School was established in the "old" school house adjacent to the Church in 1843.
Richmond is a town in Tasmania about 25 km north-east of Hobart, at the 2006 census, Richmond had a population of 880.[1]
St John's Catholic church was built in 1836, and is considered the oldest Roman Catholic church in Australia.
We've been running now for 3 months and I'm so happy with the progress and wonderful people who attend.

Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat, Where have you been?
both little kittens can be found at 



   I think I might be a closet cat person, their form, character and attitude is great to play around with and paint.

Super excited about having a little art range at 
Judy's Art Space. She is such a lovely lady and is more than happy to have all my oddities in her salon!


These trinket boxes are completely unique, up-cycled and perfect for a USB box, pencil box or for a teenagers secret stash.
I adore the colours and the wooden stability and structure.



Above; Rhino in a red bug
(a sentence I never thought I'd say!)


Above; Steampunk bluefish with lantern. The red interior is a stunning contrast.



Above; Steampunk flying fish. The colours here are my favourite varying from burnt umber to aqua. So complimentary to the wood.






Cute Salon on Bridge street now selling my work!
YAY!

FINISHED!



It's all finished and delivered to hand built creative, I hope they like it. This photo of the painting is a bit weird, I took it on my dodgy camera and the colours are a bit off. Also the painting itself has a lovely deep glossy texture which doesn't help with reflection.

I really enjoyed the process and mix of techy with old school...
Have a good Wednesday
