Christmas Countdown

I am looking forward to the holidays this year. The past two years have brought a number of changes to my life; the biggest change being my entry into motherhood. Some of you may have noticed that I looked quite pregnant in the photos of my trip to the Island of Madeira in 2017.

Subtle acrylic blending

My latest piece represents a dream sequence, which suggests that I dream in violet and gold.

It is definitely one of my recent favourites. Thanks for stopping by, -S Save
