I love these little quirky and unusual illustrations and creations by Poosac on Etsy. Ever since I saw her wonderful greetings cards with balloons on, I always go back to look for more! Here are a couple of pieces from her that I especially like.
(Birthday Card ~ Windy Day by Poosac)
(Original miniature painting – Bonjour by Poosac)

Last night Jamie and I did some experimenting with photography for an idea he had about the front cover of his bands up and coming E.P. The image below was created by putting a board over the bath and placing various lamps underneath to get the light effect (I would recommend being safe around water and electricity before trying this at home!) We then broke the light bulb and put it in place before taking the shot.
We edited the photo in post production in gimp. I am very impressed with how it turned out, as Jamie is too. I am very excited for their E.P recording which is in two weeks time (on the 10th of March.)

I have made this treasury of beautiful things with wings as I was feeling light and free today. Have spent most of the morning and afternoon sleeping and reading (must get on with some painting soon!)
You can view this treasury by clicking on the picture of it!

This weeks post is a little late (by a few days) as I went away to see my friend Katie. I decided to pick my ‘Spooky Friends’ original canvas painting in relation to my trip, as Katie is one of the best friends in the World.
Spooky Friends is painted on 20×16 inch thin canvas and textured in the usual ripped and crumpled card, paper and butterfly stencils. It is painted in acrylic and emulsion paint and varnished with a protective glossy finish!
This painting sold in August last year, and have also done two similar commission pieces! Commission pieces of this design can be done (but they will differ slightly!) You can also get a small copy in my Etsy shop, which is in the form of a blank note card here!
