Acrylic Painting Portrait Commission

I recently did a portrait commission filled with soft toys and the most delicious candies. Take a look!

And here is the finished artwork! If you are interested in something similar, please don’t hesitate to contact me here or through my Etsy store.

Self Love Spell Painting Process

I finished this one a while ago, but didn’t get a chance to upload. Better late than never! Here is the step-by-step for Self Love Spell.

And here is the finished product! The Original is for sale on my Etsy Store and prints can be found on RedBubble.

Process: Self Love Spell Sketch

A little gallery of the process from initial sketches to finished. And yes… at some point I get super engrossed in the drawing and totally forget to take progress shots. >_< 😛

Poem: A Spell for Self-Love

Rose quartz and Daffodils, candles and self,

under the moonlight I gather my spell.

A bond once filled with emotional health

has been reduced to a torturous hell.  

I hug myself. From my heart I thaw frost

(and cradle the broken pieces with care) 

Rewrite history to salvage the lost

and capture my love in a well laid snare.

Oh Goddess I lay bare my intentions,

I assure you they are nothing but pure

I’d appreciate your interventions,

To help me stop feeling so insecure.

Undo the heartache, painful and tragic,

Renew self-love with this act of magic.

Painting Process: MOUSIES!

Let’s go on an adventure! A rambling adventure with much back and forth and uhmmming and aahhhing and frustrations and joys! An adventure in painting!


As the proud owner of three wee little blank canvases and mother to a child with two wee little pet mice, I decided hey! Why not paint the furry little creatures! What a delightful idea!


The idea began as sketches. Those sketches were then transferred onto tracing paper and fleshed out. Those fleshed out sketches ventured forth to the canvas for placement…

But hark! A problem! These sketches are not looking great. No matter how I shift and twist and merge and push and pull, I am just not happy with their placement. It takes me a while, but I finally figure it out. The mice are too small on the canvas. They must be bigger! Bolder! MORE!

Yes! Yes! To the Tracing paper with ye!

And, with magic and witchery, to the canvas!

And now paint my lovelies! PAINT!

Neener screeech eekk urrr… We apologize for the loss of transmission. Please be assured that “stuff” happened and, several hours later, a completed painting emerged.

Thank-you for joining us on this journey. We hope that you had a pleasant experience and look forward to having you with us on our next adventure.

Farewell and pleasant wishes to all.

Look into my EYE!

Totally out of order, but here is the very last time lapse from my Dumpster Diving Fairy story. This time its a magpie peeking into their dumpster and finding an unwelcome guest.

Ew! Stinky!

Whoops! It’s taken me a bit longer to edit these process videos and get them out than I intended, but I am on it! Here is another Thell Illustration Time lapse.

This time she’s stepped on something truly HORRIFIC and gross. How will she ever recover from the mental scarring?
