About Me

I'm a little quirky. I suppose a lot of artist are. I like to do abstract art mostly flowers that are a bit strange I guess. I really want to expand my field of interest, different subject matter. I pretty much work on art all day long most days. It keeps my mind busy and happy. I have to be creative, to have that outlet to be creative or I feel confined. Art is a very emotional thing for me, but my paintings don't have to mean anything. I look forward to meeting other artists and learning new ways of working with different mediums. Yay!

A Scream

Posted on May 20, 2012 at 4:08pm 0 Comments

I need to really scream, to let it all out, no holding back, just let them have it....

I'm going to paint my scream today. It may turn out ugly or beautiful who knows but sound waves are going to take shape on a canvas today showing others my pain...

I had given up but...

I was re-inspired by a review of my poetry by someone oddly enough. I realized to create something beautiful every time isn't going to happen, but the one time it does is worth it all! I've been studying (meanwhile) as Ev suggested, soaking up everything I could find on anything having to do with acrylics and mixed media. I like the idea of working with acrylics and ink. Unfortunately I haven't the space to do this, nor do I have the funds. I will keep on working with what I can afford and…


I wonder if I shouldn't just quit art....

I love doing what I do but seriously I'm ot really good enough. I am an overly optimistic person. I therefore think well of what i do and think I can sell what i make. I thinkI've proven on here that i'm just not good enough. I might as well quit.

Whatever you think you want to achieve.  See it in your mind's eye.  Think about what things might give you the effect you want, then without judgement attempt it.  Have you ever tried using molding paste or gel on some of your flowers to raise them off the canvas or give a 3D effect?  Through yourself into experimenting with what you want to achieve.

If you love it, DO NOT GIVE UP. I have been painting for six months; sometimes I think I'm improving and then - another disaster. Here in Cornwall UK, the place is littered with artists, many, very good and some, quite famous. I find that they are always generous with their time: The one thing they always say is paint, paint and paint again. Do it for you and, if others like it, well it shows they have good taste!

Hannah I think your work is beautiful.  I think you might be catching what I had a few months ago its called "watching too much art-itis and comparing it to mine-syndrome" (lollz).  Maybe what you want to see in your work is a little more realism (i can be wrong on this), so why not experiment with light and dark, shadows.  Experiment and blend with sponges.  I suck at blending with a brush but something happens when I use sponge.  Experiment with white and lavender for creating light reflections on flowers and other images. Experiment with adding a tip of black to colours to create a tone etc. but  dont stop.
