Everyone rejoice for I have PROGRESS PHOTOS!

Yes, it’s true. While painting my latest mini, I remembered to stop and take a few snaps. Please enjoy the process this little guy went through.

Detailed, finished pics to follow. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mini Seascape Painting #2

Introducing another Mini Seascape painting! As you can tell, I have again failed to take appropriate progress photos. Oops! But at least I have something. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I really enjoyed the dynamic CRASH elements in this painting and I hope you do too.

Bristlenose Catfish Painting

Introducing Yellow, the Catfish in a ever so slightly cuter, acrylic painting form. Yellow was super fun to paint and I can’t help but adore her big round eyeball and mischievous expression.

The fins were also a fun moment in creation and I love the build up of layers that just make acrylic colours POP.

Process: Self Love Spell Sketch

A little gallery of the process from initial sketches to finished. And yesโ€ฆ at some point I get super engrossed in the drawing and totally forget to take progress shots. >_< ๐Ÿ˜›

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.
