I recently had a request for a painting featuring owls – I’d never painted an owl before until a bit over a week ago when I painted Satellite and Sage. Now I could be a little addicted!
Here’s my latest creation – I’ve titled it “Midnight Meeting”:
I’m looking forward to this Saturday’s Handmade Expo, where I will have my original art, keepsake boxes, jewellery and cards for sale, including some owl-inspired pieces. Brand new to the market will be my wearable art rings, featuring prints of some of my most popular paintings.
I’ve still got a week to make new pendants and rings – are there any designs you’d just love to see on one of my jewellery pieces? Let me know and I’ll make sure I have them there.
It’s been a while since I’ve participated in an Inspire Me Thursday challenge, but I’ve really enjoyed this one:
This week, let’s try something a little different. Let’s all download Mademoiselle Caroline Rivière and use her somehow in a piece of art. You can cut, collage, paint, decoupage, whatever your heart desires as long as you use some part of this image in your art.
The portrait of Mademoiselle Caroline Rivière is a painting by the French Neoclassical artist Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, now in the Louvre. [more information here]
My interpretation of this challenge was to create a watercolour painting/collage with one of my signature style backgrounds. I also gave her a bit of a wardrobe update and a bit of extra lippy. I’ve titled this one “Mademoiselle Caroline Riviere Dreams of Love on a Starry Night”.
If you’d like to buy this painting, it is available at my etsy store.
