f Gratitude... - Art Eye Candy

Gratitude...


Just recently, 
I have started to receive lots of appreciation and interest in my artwork,
 it has really blown me away that people actually like what I do.

The best thing about it, is that it has given me a real 'drive' to keep creating and this in turn has now started the ball rolling towards my dreams, it's quite amazing really.

For once, I feel that doors are beginning to open (artistically speaking) and opportunities are ahead of me, it's so exciting.  
When I started this little blog, last May with my head full of dreams and my new set of pencil crayons, I never expected to be here today sharing my art with all of you (never mind selling it).

I feel very humble at times, 
but most of all, I feel
GRATITUDE.


I decided that the next spread in the Vision Journal would be all about Gratitude.
(it's still a work in progress as I needed a rest halfway through - silly dodgy ticker)


I went for a red head chick.


This is the left hand page with a couple of layers but it's not done yet.


This is how the spread is set out.
Here's 'Little Red' after a bit of work, 
 I'm still not done with her either, especially those lips.


Another thing that I did today was
GIVE
BACK.

I think I've mentioned in a previous post about this, 
I had been asked to donate some art for the Charity Wings auction being held at the CHA at the end of the month.

It was something that I wanted to do...
I thinks it's A GOOD THING TO DO.

So today,  a lovely box full of Art Eye Candy, went in the post to the USA.

OOh I hope they like it.

I'll be back soon with the rest of this spread, and possibly other lovely stuff too,
BUT
before I go,
I wanted to say...


for visiting my little blog.

Rachelle, I'm glad things are going well for you. I'm grateful for finding your group on FB, and your blog. Your work is very inspiring. I paint mostly realism, so this art journal/whimsical style is out of my comfort zone but I'm eager to watch and learn.

Hello again Stephanie,
its great to see you here again.
Im glad you like my style, i used to be much more realist too, especially when I was at Art College. I think the way I work/play now is very different and feels free, like there are 'no rules'.
Its still an exploration...
