She'll be Right

Juice Me
Painting size 15" x 11"



Well here we are at the end of January already and I feel 2013 is moving too fast. There are some opportunities for exhibiting in the next three months and I find myself wondering how I will manage along with my two gallery commitments as new work is required there in March and April too. Sometimes I feel stressed when I think about this and then when I am happy with a couple of paintings in a row I think to myself "she'll be right". I aim to try and have pieces to enter in exhibitions as otherwise what do we do with all this art if we don't get it out there. I have completed some more animal portraits this past week and for variety of painting technique also played around with creating something from my imagination. This one will join my edible collection

  1. Gorgeous painting Lorraine... wonderful colours and lovely fresh fluid mixes. Love it!!

    Great to hear about all your forthcoming events, know exactly what you mean about a couple of paintings in a row, am working on different subjects at the moment and things not quite happening but will persevere until I get there!!

    1. Guess we need the losers Laura to appreciate the winners even though they put us on a roller coaster ride, glad you like this one he did come together very easily and very quickly which does not always happen as you know

  5. Love this one. Don't stress or it will show in your paintings and create even more stress.... Relax, take a deep breath and just 'do'.....as your inner voice said "she'll be right"...and so you will.

  7. Hi Renate, yes it is - these are really exciting to create as you just run with what is happening on the paper and create, I did start with the idea of oranges though already as my intended subject
