New Work and Work In Progress

It's funny, I was going to start this post with lots of statements about my goals for this year and how excited I am about what the future may bring, but it felt like I was forcing it. Maybe as I go along I'll talk about a bit about the future but right now, I'm going to take things one day at a time.  I've started this year in a really pensive mood but luckily for me that doesn't mean that I'm feeling low or depressed. It's just that my intuition is telling me to just go slowly and be fully present in each moment, so I'm listening to that message.

So here's a quick look at one of the paintings I'm currently working on and a couple of pieces that I've finished already.

Here's the WIP:

With the painting above, I'm interested in showing her emotions through her body language, the expression on her face and with the colours I use.  So I'm going to go slowly and carefully with this one.

The above is an original watercolour bookmark but I'm thinking of printing several bookmarks from this rather than offering it as an original.  I enjoyed choosing the colours for her hair and her dress as they are deep and a little bit earthy.

The painting above is finished and will be available in my Etsy shop soon but I just need to figure out what to call it!  Any ideas?  What words come to your mind when you look at her face?  I would love some help.

Thanks and speak soon.
