Cockatoo Floral Abstract Art is Ready to Hang!

 $235.00 - Members Save!

Cockatoo floral abstract art is ready to hang!

Dimensions 16" Diameter

Two Coats of Resin

Signed and dated on the back of the canvas!

Comes with Certificate of Authentication

Deep Sea Turtle sold for $65.00 AUD!


I was not happy with the overkill of screws on the backing,

nevertheless the new owner didn't mind,

all she saw was perfection!

So with the backings for 'Cockatoo Floral Abstract'

and 'Dolphins Play' I focused on getting a tidier outcome.

It always helps to pre-drill the holes and have

the right sized screws!

Cockatoo Floral Abstract painting has also been signed

and dated on the back of the canvas,

unfortunately I did not have

my memory card in my camera when I took the photo!


All in all,

it takes about 15 hours to complete my artwork,

That doesn't include drying time - approximately 4 days

(Paint and Resin)


2 - 3 hours to apply resin coats,

(approximately 1 hour per coat).

It takes about an hour to cut the backing

and fix it to the back of the canvas.

All pieces are sealed around the edges with clear silicon, giving each peace a tidy finish.


Practice makes perfect!

Best resin coat ever! Not a spec of dust!

'Valley of Dreams'

I like the idea of creating backgrounds

with the Acrylic Pouring Technique!

It's always a surprise!

You can have an idea, picture the way you would

like it to turn out and if it turns out

the way you had imagined, well then that is a bonus!

My pourings never turn out the way I see them in my mind,

but that's ok, because I can still work with them.

My plan for this one is to add a Rainbow Lorikeet to it!

But first I would like to finish 'Songs of Italy'

Progress Painting

I am experimenting with a different technique,

playing around with colour, light and reflection

and ensuring that I am applying enough

paint of my canvas!

Last but not least!  'Dolphins Play'


An experiment with not the best outcome!

With this piece I added Pigment Powder to my resin,

unfortunately it went places I didn't want it to be.

That's ok, lesson learnt!

It depends on how much light is on the painting

to how much of the pigment can be seen.

I am sure my granddaughter with still

be happy with it!


So for now,

Stay Safe and Focus on the Good Things in Life!

As I sit here and think about what to write in this blog,

there is a part of me that just does not want to write at this time

with the chaos that is occurring around the globe.

My heart goes out to all affected by this current Pandemic

and I wish for you and all around you to be safe

and to remain in the best of spirits that you possibly can!

As a Support Worker in the Aged Care Community

the main concern our elderly have is how poorly people

are behaving.

Not even in WWII did they see people

behave in such a disgraceful manner!

We all deal with things differently,

but the worst thing we can do to ourselves and

to those around us is to act out of fear!

So wherever you are and whatever you do,

Be Love, Be Compassion, Be Kind, Be Grateful , Be Generous!

Creating my own world and my safe place!

In my spare time, I like to create art.

Listening to music that uplifts and watching as little TV as possible

is my way of coping with what is and what is to come.

Over the weekend I applied a second coat of resin

to 'Happy Times - Dolphins Play' and one coat of resin to

'Cockatoo Floral Abstract'.

I am hoping that later on today I can give the

Cockatoo Canvas a second and final coat of resin.

'Happy Times Dolphins at Play' requires a third coat

of resin and that will have to be put aside until

I can order more resin.

Although happy with the fact that there is not one spec

of dust in the second coat, I did not support the underside

of my canvas with a neat peace of cardboard,

therefore I did not have a nice even spread of the resin.

So third coat should hopefully be the final coat.

Cockatoo Floral Abstract Products Available!

Please let me know if you have any issues with the CODE.

I set them and does the rest.

Deep Sea Turtle Art – Original Sold!

Deep Sea Turtle
Original Art - 'Deep Sea Turtle' 12" x 12" Acrylic Painting/Pouring 2020

Happy to Announce!

Deep Sea Turtle!  12" x 12" diameter Acrylic on Canvas sold within a day of completion!

What a wonderful surprise!

Just needs its resin coats and back, then ready for its new home.


You know, I sold this piece for $65, without really thinking about the amount of hours I had put into painting the turtle!

My eldest son (Harley) sent me a message saying that I was selling way too cheap and that he would have paid me $165.00.

(Mind you, I will not sell anything to family or friends - that just doesn't feel right to me)

Pricing artwork is challenging!

As I said to Harley, if I was to charge per hour, approximately 10 hours at $30/hour and then the cost of resin, backing and the time in doing the finishing touches,  it makes it quite an expensive art piece.

At the end of the day, I was thrilled that somebody wanted to buy it!


I currently have two artworks on display at our local Art Center - 'Rivers Flow' and 'Splendor'

Both of these paintings are Gallery Priced at $285.00 and will be on display for about another month.

I have a number of pieces for Sale, it's just a matter of finding the time to take the photos and place them on my website!

Whispers in the Wind - a message from 'Mum'

Look back and reflect,

be proud of how far you have come,

see your achievements, rather than feel a failure, as nothing is failed. 

Everything is a process, a step-by-step process, that is leading closer to the destination you seek!

Your determination, commitment and strength is admirable.

Stay focused in your 'heart', be 'love', be 'happy'!

Message from Mum!

Came through when I was preparing dinner Tuesday evening.

As I finished writing the message, the most perfect song came on the radio,

'Ain't Nothing Gonna Break My Stride, Ain't Nothing Going to Slow Me Down' -  Matthew Wilder. 

Well that got me bopping around the house!

An oldie, but a goodie!
