AEDM Day 24

Decided to give the painting a rest for today,
and get messy with paper instead.
Added a fabric spine to the book covers,
and bound an insert from some nice writing paper.
Now waiting for everything to dry.

AEDM Day 23


Added more detail to the dress and tidied up the area around the hands.
Still thinking about using some diluted blue acrylic
over the dress to soften the folds a bit.
Then I just need to finish the hands,
face,
hair,
wings......

I'm sure she'll be finished by AEDM 2015 ;)

AEDM Day 22

First stage of the dress/gown is complete.
It's darker than intended, so I'll need to find a lighter blue.
And I've come to the conclusion that I need bigger brushes
for laying down that much paint in one go!

AEDM Day 21

I write
I draw
I paint
I stitch

I create

I doubt
I worry
I falter
I hesitate
I criticise

but still I create
 I am an artist

AEDM Day 20

No angelic update today.
I've started on the gown/dress, 
but it's just a big patch of blue at the moment 
so there's not much to show.
So instead i'll show you something that I finished a few weeks ago, 
that I actually started at the end of the last AEDM!
but then ground to a halt 
(along with many other things).
But eventually I managed to get myself into gear and finished it,
(and I'm even happy with the face!)
just in time for the annual diversity exhibition, 
so at the moment it's on display in our local art shop/gallery.
This is my second work for Brigid,
in a more a more traditional style,
rather than the modern images of my Goddesses that I've done previously.

AEDM day 19

I'm still working on the face,
but I can't seem to get rid of 'the stare'.
At least it's an improvement over the flat look from last time.

AEDM Day 18

I wonder what this could be?


The start of a  handmade book perhaps?
