I love holidays!  I’ve been getting so much done 🙂

Today I’m delivering a commissioned painting to its new owner.  I’m looking forward to seeing it on the wall!

I have been working on a large triptych for a friend, and doing a few watercolours.

“Summer Field”

“Bright December Day”

“Growing Family”

Hopefully in the next few days I’ll be posting up some new wearable art pendants too 🙂

Inspire Me Thursday – Tree: Take 3

Monday, November 16th, 2009

Yes, I have even more trees!

This painting was inspired by one of my favourite quotes:

“In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.”
~Albert Camus~

"Invincible Summer"

In other news, I have posted my first fan special on my KL Bailey Art Facebook Fan Page.  If you’re not already a Fan, become one today – I will be posting weekly specials on paintings!!

Inspire Me Thursday – Soup

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

At first I wasn’t sure I was even going to contribute to this week’s Inspire Me Thursday.  I thought about making homemade soup and photographing it, but it’s the middle of summer here and I just don’t feel like eating soup.

Eventually I came up with this idea:

“Primordial Soup”

Primordial Soup - Watercolour painting by Kirsten Bailey

Primordial Soup - Watercolour on watercolour paper - 25cm x 35cm - $45 unframed

The original plan was to do a background and then paint over with black to make amoeba-looking shapes.  But I liked the background so much that I thought I would just keep it the way it is.  You can imagine the microscopic amoebas floating around in that water.
