Welcome to my Studio Blog

Take a peek into my studio and See what inspires me to create my paintings and what’s been happening in my studio and on my travels.

I love to travel, see new places and meet new people. I love to create bold colourful paintings, many of them based on my wonderful travels.

An Idea I am playing with...

Hi everyone, I need to do a painting for our entrance. My entrace colours are a reddish brown on one wall, and the other where the painting will hang is a sort of a dark beige/light brown colour. If you have crayola crayons - it would be the colour tumbleweed....lol ( I like to use crayons for my fast sketches)


The Entrance colours

So here is by basic idea I have been thinking about the past couple of days. I just did some very fast sketches today and here is the one that I sort of like.....perhaps it might turn into a painting. And you would think that I would be sick of leaves...lol. I think they have consumed me. Have a great week everyone.

This morning I did another sketch - as the canvas in question is 30 x 90 and narrow one, so perhaps this composition might be better

I couldn't decide, I love them both. Though the second would probably look better in that area of the house. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product. I'm sure it will be beautiful! Best of luck! :)

Hey Mama thansk so much for dropping by. I have not had a chance to paint as you know I am in wood pecker prison...going crazy here.

Hi Diana, Ah thansk a bunch for your lovely comments.

Hi Bunny, Thanks so much too.

Hi Anita, Thanks so much also. I am looking forward to painting it soon.

Hi Kim, I thought you were supposed to be away mate...go take a break from the computer! LOL...Happy to read your comment. I cant wait to start the painting, but I am in wood pecker prison. The nasty SOB was back this morning and made another big hole and I was only downstairs for a short time...And I did not hear him in time. When I ran outside in my pyjamas, and boots the damage was already done.
xoxo Lisa

I love them both as well. I keep saying I am going to paint for 'myself' as well but it is so hard to find the time! Soon I hope :) I am looking forward to seeing whichever you choose on the wall, I am sure it will be stunning.

I hope you win the battle with the woodpecker, how frustrating! So ironic, it looks like you are out in the peaceful country, away from all the noise & distraction...can't win hey!
