Skies & Mountains

Sunshyne Art & Jewelry Design

Did a landscape series, recently. I’m a bit obsessed by skies and mountains! lol
Not based in true reality, with the hyper coloured skies, etc., they are inspired by what moves me.  The three suns are something I paint in a lot of my fantasy landscapes…they represent my 3 sons, who are the lights of my life. 🙂 ❤

New Fur Baby!!

Two weeks ago, we brought home our newest fur baby! Now I have two beautiful sweetie pups! 😀

Meet Melody… 🙂 ❤

She is a Shih Tzu/Maltese cross, and weighs next to nothing at the moment! She was the runt, and is expected to be about 6 pounds full grown. Tiny little fur ball reminds me of the rabbit I used to have! 🙂 So amazingly soft! Plus she bouncy/hops when she runs, and even smells like him! lol

She is super cuddly, affectionate, smart, playful and curious. She loves my boys, but I am her fave. I know it! 😀 haha

My other dog tore her (dog equivalent of) ACL a few days after we brought puppy home, so they have not played together much, since her activity needs to be kept low. 😦  Melody loves her though!

And she loves Melody’s toys! 😛

Tropica

I recently joined an art networking site called paintingsilove.com, and it is a wonderful site for getting feedback on your paintings/drawings, and for the inspiration aspect to it, as well. I often gather creative energy when I visit there! One comment I received on a painting I posted, called it “lush”, and that word was a great prompt to break through the creative block I was experiencing at the time. 🙂

I thought of the word, and what it meant to me, and I immediately went to Hawaii in my head. The lushness of that place is beyond amazing! The scenery notwithstanding, it is lush in other ways, as well, like the scents, and the tastes, and the general feeling of the place.

I felt inspired to do a painting with tropical colours, with the objective being to give me a sense of being in the tropics every time I looked…

Expressionism With Alcohol Inks

Sunshyne Art & Jewelry Design

Recently I had been wanting to try painting with alcohol inks. I had come across some gorgeous paintings online which were done with them, and I loved the flowy expressiveness achieved with them. It is such an intuitive process using them. They have a mind of their own, but some control can be achieved using straight alcohol (I used isopropyl) and various sizes and shapes of brushes. Largely, I just let them do their thing, and then tweak the picture here and there. Experiment, experiment, experiment! Too fun! 😀

The only thing is that a lot of ventilation is needed, as I found out the hard way! I mean, I knew it would be somewhat fumy, but working as small as I did, on 2inch square ceramic tiles(which I got really cheap at the home improvement centre), I was too close, and ended up with a headache on my first…

Color is my joy, color is my “Harmony” :)

Another intuitive painting….because they are so much fun to do! And very mind freeing, too. 🙂 I love to play with color, and I love to play with layering and different effects. Started out as usual…with blocks of my fave colors…using acrylics. Found some old crackle gel medium in my stash of stuff…and while it […]
