Hello how are you? How’s you’re February looking so far?
I thought I share a more news-y post today.
My eldest son is turning 13 next week – a teenager, oh my! I’ll have a 13 year old and a 2 year old under the same roof, so emotions are running high right now. Remember when Kevin became a teenager?!
I’m also working on a digital marketing project at the moment – something completely unrelated to my art. (My boys call this freelance contract my ‘proper job’!! – That’s a post for another day I think…)
Trying to fit everything and get enough sleep is quite a challenge. In fact I’m struggling with a bit of Insomnia. I’m feeling so fired up that my brain keeps whirring, at night. It’s really quite noisy in there.
Perhaps that’s why my recent moodboard palettes are so muted (as you can see above) – I’m craving some quiet in my life.
My Latest Obsession
I’ve become rather obsessed by photography still life styling lately. I’ve been concentrating on (ahem *obsessing over*) creating a descent Instagram feed and realised creating compositions for photography is an art and not as easy as it looks.
Some of the best example of still life photography can be found in food styling photographs. I’ve created a new Pinterest Board ‘Food Glorious Food‘ where I’ll be sharing some of my incredible finds, so do join me over there. If you have any stylists or blogs you think I should be following, please let me know.
I was so happy that Jessica, the brains behind the colour love website, Design Seeds, used a couple of my images to create moodboards from last week. I’m a massive fan so thank you Jessica.
If you want to keep up with updates like these from me and Painting Grace, I’d love to connect with you on Facebook
Until next time, I wish you a wondeful day, whatever you’re doing
