Apple On A Wall

Art is around you all you have to do is see it through your artistic eyes. I believe everyone has it, but it is just for you to explore and find it. In this piece I decided to explore different textures to create my artwork. I used simple textures around the house to start the process. I was amazed at the progress of the piece. I started by collecting a few tiles, bricks, biscuit tin covers and other surfaces and ended up with this piece.

Being happy with this artwork I plan on exploring this media some more. See you soon.

Death Bed

It was very tragic when I lost my husband as a result of a single gun shot wound to his head. This is one of my pieces depicting him on the hospital bed hooked up to the life support machine and me at the bedside crying with my head down. I know there were angels present so I drew and image of an angel hovering at his side. This piece was done in pastels. It was a very sad time in my life and I just wanted to capture this particular moment.

Death for me is now just a phase in life everyone has to go through whether or not they are prepared for it. After this tragic experience I now live my days to the fullest not knowing when the Creator will call my number.

So to all my readers, live life to the fullest. Life is too short. Stop the quarrels, make up with your significant other and just move on.

Gingerbread House, Queen's Park Savannah

This piece of Art work was done in pencil. I wanted to do a historic house. I am very fascinated with old long time houses and their design. The Gingerbread House around the Queen's Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain is my favourite one.To draw this house, I went to the Savannah and sat on a bench directly opposite the house. I was working on perspective. A number of passersby stopped and enquired about my drawing, it was very relaxing to sit outdoors and draw. I finished the fine details at home and this was the result. I know the perspective is not quite right in some aspects of the drawing but I like how it come out as a whole.

Aquatic Globe

My first post is this Aquatic Globe that was drawn using Prisma colour pencils. I love using these colour pencils because they are very vibrant and deliver top quality pigment and they layer and blend easily.My inspiration for this piece came from the fact that I love the ocean and the beach. I decided to capture an aquatic  under water scene showing perspective.This is one of my favourite pieces because when I look at it I feel relaxed .

 I have been contemplating for a while to share my art work with the world but I must admit I am a little shy because I know that there are many artistic people out there who are better than me.I had never gotten the opportunity to do art in secondary school or professionally so all my skills are self taught.I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to my blog.
