About "Taking Flight"
This was such fun to paint! I enjoyed every minute, my children stood staring as I added the final touches. My studio, my canvases, my face, the floor and the kids were all covered in paint spatters too! My poor yorkies even had a bit of orange on them after it was finished!
My inspiration comes in fits and starts, to tell the truth! Often, I will just get the feeling to dash into my studio and paint like mad! Or sometimes, I think about a painting for ages, and suddenly it all just comes together. I try to be flexible... I never realised until recently how strongly my emotions actually come through in my paintings. Things that bother me, or inspire me or make me happy generally show in my latest paintings. I find it really uncanny how this happens totally subconciously. If I had to try to paint how I feel, I dont think it would work! Its something that just comes from in your heart, from who you are. From WHERE you are in your life at present.
Currently I have my work only on South African Artists, as well as on Daily Paintworks.
Strangely enough, I studied to be a motor mechanic.
