Painter in the making?! I hope so

Look at this. Just look at it! Isn’t she splendid?


Oh yeah, bask in its awesome glory. It’s an oil painting finished in a day! – and has textures, and even Garnet crushed and layered onto the surface. I absolutely loved it. In fact, I still love it! BUT, and yes, there is a but –

It ISN’T one of mine! I wish!

This particular painting is by one of my best friend, Rebecca (of the Abecca’s Art blog). She opened her blog a few years ago as part reason to document her work, and also part reason to stay connected in a world when she was living in an Australian Country town, days away from us all down here in Sydney. It kept her sane. In fact, she was the one who mentioned that I might want to give blogging a go, use it as an avenue for creative expression.

Suffice to say I’m a little jealous of her incredible talent! 😛

Here is another one of her work, this is finished now, but pictured below is when the painting was a ‘work-in-progress’. Even her work-in-progress look ten times more attractive than my meagre attempts to be a painter.


She is a painter, period (except a part-time job to keep her painting). I will be taking few painting lessons from her in the near future. So excited about the possibility of producing something as beautiful myself. One day!

Go visit her on her blog – browse through her many gorgeous paintings etc. She’d love your company too, as much as I do.

In the mean time, here are my ill attempts to paint landscape and flowers! LOL (Don’t judge me :P, I’m still learning!)…hopefully they will look better when finished.

    1. Thank you! I’m trying, but it’s been tricky to paint simple, ’cause I usually go for the palette knife. I’ll put up photos of the finished products when I get there. 🙂


      1. Just find your own tehnique and let your soul paint through your hands. I think the most important thing is to see a part of you in the paintings you make, and I see that 🙂


      2. Thank you! That means a lot. I try n try but can’t do a flat canvas art, I always end up sticking things on it or adding texture, and it makes me very happy. I have a peacock painting I’m eager to do because I want to paint individual feathers and layer them atop each other, floating out. Let’s see if I can do it. 🙂


  1. Wow! I love that sky painting! I checked out her blog and there’s some really spectacular landscape pictures!

    Might make one of them as my book cover one day. 🙂


    1. I know aye?! It’s gorgeous! Makes me want to attempt one.

      I’m sure if you were do inclined to want to use her art, you could ask her. 🙂 she’d probably love it.


  2. Hey thats pretty awesome! I think Im going to do a unicorn one with the crytal bits in it!! hehehehe. I love my fruit cake! Its all just practice and passion!! we shall have a painting day soon! Have u got your master peice on your blog??? cause you should!
