The First Painting of 2017!

Happy New Year to you all! I hope 2017 will be a healthy, creative, and prosperous one. I've been thinking a lot about my work/business/career and the way I'd like it to develop this coming year, so I'll be writing about that soon. Also, my website finally has its own shop for 2017! I'm adding new items whenever I have the time, and eventually there will be a selection of prints, original paintings, and painted stones that you'll be able to buy directly from me. You can find the shop here, and I'll also be keeping my Etsy shop open too - I've just had a very busy Christmas on there, which was wonderful! A big thank you to everyone who placed an order during 2016 - your support is deeply appreciated.

So, on to the new painting!

Midnight Walk 3 was a pleasure to paint - apart from those tiny branches that actually started to drive me a little batty towards the end! ;) But I've really enjoyed painting trees like this again, and I'm now working on the companion piece to this one, so I'll be sharing that soon. I have a lot of plans for tree paintings in 2017 - my new surroundings are definitely inspiring me and it feels as if I'm being drawn back to this subject matter and new ways of depicting them.
