My latest painting commission ~ A wedding Present Blessing Tree
a wedding present for her nephew & godson.
This design combines lots of elements I love, entwined trees, a Celtic Blessing,
and sumptuous glowing gold
I often look back over the workings of a design in my sketchbook to see how the piece unfolded, and am inspired in new & different directions.
Creating is an organic process for me, I sit & doodle & an idea will take shape on the page as I pull inspirations from my memories of things I discover on my walks, from music, words & poems I hear.
The finished painting with the words of the Celtic Blessing running around the sun. And a first for me, I managed to upload my first ever (a wee bit dodgy in places) video me doing watercolour washes over the tree trunks.

based on the Scottish thistle here )
