Latest Work in Progress...

The arrival of a larger TV screen in our lounge room a couple of months back, and the removal of my old, old, old entertainment unit, I now have a big empty space on my wall that needs to be filled.  Enter in a 60cm x 90cm (24" x 35") blank canvas, an idea to include a Swiss Cheese Plant leaf and some palette paint, and the result is the painting below:

I still have A LOT of work to do on it yet as I have all these ideas in my head but not enough free time to get them on the canvas.  Suffice to say that the Swiss Cheese Plant leaf idea may be tossed out the window, a gray cockatiel may be added and also some black and orange butterflies.  And as I'm yet to perfect mixing aqua/turquoise paint, I have to master that before adding it.

Stay tuned for more WIP updates!

PS Due to a deleting error, I deleted the finished painting post, so here it is!


  1. It is lovely just the way it is! So warm and encouraging in its brightness:)

    1. Thanks Gwen. I'm looking at adding some more Flora Bowley type detail using my fingers. I did do some last night and I'm starting to see where it's going now.

    1. Thanks! I'm hoping to dull down the colours a bit as it will be hanging right above the TV, so I don't want it to be too "in your face".

  3. I love it!! So bright and breezy...
    But I guess you're right... right above the TV might take you attention away. ;)

  4. This is so full of sunshine and happy thoughts!!

  5. Flora Bowley is a wonderful inspiration....I shall look forward to the result:)
