Cockatoo Floral Abstract Products Available Now!

As I sit here and think about what to write in this blog, there is a part of me that just does not want to write at this time with the chaos that is occurring around the globe.

My heart goes out to all affected by this current Pandemic and I wish for you and all around you to be safe and to remain in the best of spirits that you possibly can!

As a Support Worker in the Aged Care Community the main concern our elderly have is how poorly people are behaving.  Not even in WWII did they see people behave in such a disgraceful manner!

We all deal with things differently, but the worst thing we can do to ourselves and those around us is to act out of fear!

So wherever you are and whatever you do, Be Love, Be Compassion, Be Kind, Be Grateful and Be Generous!

Creating my own world and my safe place!

In my spare time, I like to create art.  Listening to music that uplifts and watching as little TV as possible is my way of coping with what is and what is to come.

Over the weekend I applied a second coat of resin to 'Happy Times - Dolphins Play' and one coat of resin to 'Cockatoo Floral Abstract'.  I am hoping that later on today I can give the Cockatoo Canvas a second and final coat of resin.

'Happy Times Dolphins at Play' requires a third coat of resin and that will have to be put aside until I can order more resin.  Although happy with the fact that there is not one spec of dust in the second coat, I did not support the underside of my canvas with a neat peace of cardboard, therefore I did not have a nice even spread of the resin.  So third coat should hopefully be the final coat.

Cockatoo Floral Abstract Products Available!

Please let me know if you have any issues with the CODE.  I set them and does the rest.

Deep Sea Turtle Art – Original Sold!

Deep Sea Turtle

Happy to Announce!

Deep Sea Turtle!  12" x 12" diameter Acrylic on Canvas sold within a day of completion!

What a wonderful surprise!

Just needs its resin coats and back, then ready for its new home.


You know, I sold this piece for $65, without really thinking about the amount of hours I had put into painting the turtle!

My eldest son (Harley) sent me a message saying that I was selling way too cheap and that he would have paid me $165.00.

(Mind you, I will not sell anything to family or friends - that just doesn't feel right to me)

Pricing artwork is challenging!

As I said to Harley, if I was to charge per hour, approximately 10 hours at $30/hour and then the cost of resin, backing and the time in doing the finishing touches,  it makes it quite an expensive art piece.

At the end of the day, I was thrilled that somebody wanted to buy it!


I currently have two artworks on display at our local Art Center - 'Rivers Flow' and 'Splendor'

Both of these paintings are Gallery Priced at $285.00 and will be on display for about another month.

I have a number of pieces for Sale, it's just a matter of finding the time to take the photos and place them on my website!

Happy Times! Dolphins Play! Acrylic Painting

happy times dolphin play

Special kind of magic!


Another fun project!

This acrylic pouring didn't really turn out as I had hoped, sometimes I need to know when to stop!

Anyway, nothing wasted.  Originally OceanBliss, this piece created a nice design for Scarves, Wraps and accessories created in ShopVida!

I had a friend suggest that I create an ocean scene, rather than re-do my pouring.  So I decided on an oceanic dolphin scene.

You know, every time I have been down at the waterfront or down at the beach, when a dolphin appears, people get excited!   When I see a dolphin, it makes me feel happy and it is a reminder to lighten up and remember to play!  They just have a special kind of magic about them.

Still a work in progress!

All the Artists

I would just like to acknowledge all the fine artists on the internet who share their tips, thank you, thank you!

My plan this year is to get some lessons!  I am always looking to improve my art.

Be in the Present Moment | Whispers in the Wind

Be in the Present Moment

It is so easy to become stuck in the past or worry about the 'what ifs' of the future!

Life is about choice.

We make good choices and sometimes not so good choices, that is how we learn!

Don't allow the negative experiences from the past to block the new opportunities or experiences that are at your door?

Feel your worth and move forward in strength and self-confidence.

Let go of negative people and situations that are not serving your higher purpose!

Open your heart and flow in the moment!
