Leda

So back to some artwork, as promised...
I admit to not being super busy in the studio these last few weeks,
but than a gals gotta enjoy some summer holidays with her honey-pie too...

I thought you may all like to see my beautiful goddess
"Leda"
She is a woman in tune & in complete alignment with nature...it is she and she is it...


Here is how she came about...


I am still trying to figure out what kind of frames to put on them.  I am thinking ornate gold ones.

Prints of them will be available by the end of this week I believe.

Well, I spent a couple hours at the dentist this morning.
A couple hours at the movies with my mom in the afternoon.
Next on the agenda is quite abit of paperwork in the studio (yuck!)
But part of that paperwork is because I was the lucky recipient of an
Ontario Arts Council Exhibition Assistance Grant,
which is so wonderful & helps me out alot to cover costs from my last solo exhibition, so YAAAYYY.
Than, hopefully I am looking at a good couple hours with my prismas...

Hope your week is off to a good start.

XO Mandy

Wow thanks for all of the comments everyone. I see people are enjoying the how-I-do-it part of the paintings so maybe I'll try to do so more often. Thanks again so so much...just when I think no one is paying attention to my work or blog I get a large surge of positivity, it's wonderful...XO M.
