New! "Tranquility" - Mixed media on Canvas.

I have discovered Kathe Fraga's beautiful modern chinoiserie style artwork, and they have inspired me to do a couple of my own,  using some mixed media.  I have used acrylic paints, paper, beads, fabric, gesso, impasto paste and glitter on a 20 x 16 inch canvas.  I think mine looks a bit shabby chic too?  What are your thoughts? Thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
I have listed it in my Etsy store which you can get here.

New 24 x 30 Inch Chinoiserie style inspired mixed media on canvas...

Good morning all!  I have discovered the works of Kathe Fraga and I am in love!!!  Just love the modern chinoiserie style she does and it really inspired to make something in that kind of style as well. Well, I think Im addicted, I just love the free style of it.  Its a cross between the chinoiserie style and shabby chic!!  Im loving it, and I hope you do too!  

I have used a variety of mixed medias, like acrylic paints, impasto, 
gesso, beads, paper, glitter and fabric

This painting has lots of texture!!

New! "Flowers of Eden" - Acrylics on canvas...

Good evening everyone....My latest painting titled "Flowers of Eden" is 24 x 36 inch acrylics and gesso on canvas.  I have used a multitude of colours, pinks, blues, greens, purples with touches of metallic gold.  This painting has a really different effect when the light touches it and you can see the metallic gold in the painting.

Above, this photo has been taken at night, hence the dark shadows.  You can't see the gold flecks through the painting in this light.

Again, although taken at night, this picture shows the metallic gold when the light hits the canvas.

This one is titled "Dream, Believe, Create"....75 x 60cm  Priced at $235. I have used Acrylic paints, glitter and ink.  This one has lots of layers, and I love painting this style as it is so free and easy going!  I literally paint, stamp, splurge, swipe paint on the canvas.  Let it dry, then do the same again with a variety of colours then work out what shapes (like the flowers) I want on the canvas, then block them and outline them, then fill in the rest!  The picture doesn't really show up the shimmer and sparkly parts from the glitter glue (which I love for its beautiful effects!).  The concept is  quite simple and I remember doing something along these lines at school!  You can purchase this one from my Etsy store here.

In this photo you can see how it shimmers and shines in the right lighting!

Hummingbirds and flowers - Another mixed media on canvas!

I have not long finished this painting of which I adapted from another painting I did with identical colourings but without the large flowers. It was very similar though.  I will list this one with all its dimensions etc soon in my Etsy store.  I have used acrylic paints, paper, glitter glue and rhinestones.

Here you can see the shimmer and sparkles!!

Blue Sky Meadow - Acrylics on canvas

Good Afternoon!!  I have been busy painting away whenever I have the chance these days, as my day job is taking up more time!  Oh well, makes me appreciate the time I get when I do get to paint!  So I have a few works that I have completed that I want to show you. 
So this one is titled "Blue Sky Meadow" and measures 61 x 30.5cm, priced at $165.   I have used acrylic paints, glitter glue and a touch of paper (little daisy flowers) and rhinestones.   Its available from my Etsy store Here.  I am now having free postage to anywhere within Australia as well.
