I decided to start September with a challenge to myself – to complete 30 paintings in 30 days ! I had been given lovely watercolours from a colleague who didn’t use them. This prompted me to start some floral wreaths in various tones. Happy to say I’m keeping on course … here they are ….. so far!!
Excited about doing some Harry Potter doodling at LeakyCon in Dublin this month and so happy to be alongside (even on a page!) to Miraphora Mina of MinaLima !! From Harry Potter’s Hogwarts letter and the Marauder’s Map to the MACUSA crest and magical items inside Newt Scamander’s case, graphic designers Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima have brought all of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World to life, down to the tiniest detail.
The above abstract painting called ‘The Gathering’ will be up for auction on Thursday 9th March in Belfast (see below for details) or check out Ink Monkey Facebook page
This is a new kind of artwork for me! One of my colleagues asked if I knew of someone who could draw her dog as a gift. I said ‘I can try’ (never having drawn any kind of animal before!)…nothing ventured …nothing gained. Thankfully she loved it and that lead on to drawing quite a few before the New Year. It’s a different kind of art …not as free and easy as painting abstracts in acrylic but satisfying nonetheless!
Hope you enjoy them ! Mo x
Head over to Moyra Blayney Art Facebook page for the chance to win this big 12×12 inch canvas …acrylic landscape – LAVENDER DAWN – !!! Can be posted worldwide so EVERYONE can enter 🙂 ….Yipee!!
Thanks to one of my Facebook chums – Joyce – who suggested perhaps trying a flower painting! I love my summer basket and have tried to capture the vibrant colours, textures and shapes in this canvas. It’s still drying but I’ve put it up on the wall anyway ! 🙂 This may be a little series of summery type art … I’m excited :)!
I didn’t really want to get all my art stuff out this evening …so came up with a landscape and used the sewing machine instead of a brush .. !! First time for everything and no brushes to wash!!
