CreateArtHistory Competition Design 2: Science Experiment


This is the second one I did. The titles are my own, not part of the competition requirements (:

CreateArtHistory Competition Design 1 ; Strange Lands


I’ve just done a couple of designs for the RedBubble CreateArtHistory competition. They supply you with three packs of images you can use… you can either manipulate the images, or create something completely new based on the images. I went for manipulation.

Padme at Bench Art Park


Seraphim was recently invited to place some more of my art at Bench Art Park. The curator, there, Pearl Grey, liked the 3 works of mine that Seri had placed last time, so much, she has left them up. Seri and I chose my portrait of fabulous Natalie Portman as ‘Padme’, and Seri placed it above my 3 works she’d previously had hung there. It looks great, there, though this photo doesn’t do it justice, so, here it is as I posted it, here, 18 months ago…


… she’s one of my favourite portrait paintings (:

Little Diana of Themyscira WIP 3


Little Diana and her fabulous mum, Hippolyta, are coming along nicely. I really love this scene… Hippolyta (who loves her little Diana to bits, as do all the Amazons) is confidently explaining to Diana why she doesn’t need to fear anything, and doesn’t need to learn to fight… Diana is looking knowingly at her aunt, Antiope, who is Hippolyta’s sister (as are all the Amazons), and her General, because she knows Antiope wants to start training her, which, of course, she does, secretly, for several years before Hippolyta finds out.

Little Diana of Themyscira WIP 2


A few hours work later… been loving working on this between morning (glorious Saturday) chores… have to go and do more chores, don’t want to leave this lovely, heart-warming painting, but look forward to getting back soon. This is, of course, gorgeous wee Diana, and her stunning mummy, the Queen of the Amazons… there are so many fabulous woman in this movie, I just love it to bits! The soundtrack for this painting has been the gorgeous album The Very Best of the Ronettes… glorious, chugging, soulful R&B/Rock & Roll (:
