"Once Upon a Time" Wrap Up

The "Once Upon a Time" group exhibition was a great success. Loads of amazing artwork and a very busy opening night! It was my first night away from Baby A since he was born (he's now 5 months), so Hubby and I took the opportunity to have a quiet dinner at Huongs afterwards. Party animals!

 Now that the exhibition has come to an end I can finally share with you all the three paintings I have been working on for the past few months! 

First up is "Snow White in the Enchanted Forest"

"Snow White in the Enchanted Forest" Original Painting - 80cm (W) x 100cm (L) x 3.5cm (D) - BIG!
 
This one is of the beautiful Snow White, while she sits in the Enchated Forest. She is surrounded by lots of little woodland creatures - deer, bunny rabbits, an owl, a raccoon, a little squirrel, and butterflies. A truely magical painting!

The original is $700, (or $660 for Facebook fans) - you can purchase it by commenting on THIS POST.

Next is a painting which was inspired by the original Hans Christian Andersen version of "The Little Mermaid" (written in 1837).

"The Little Mermaid's Demise" Original Painting - 40cm (W) x 120cm (L) x 3.5cm (D) - BIG!


This one was inspired by the original version of "The Little Mermaid" fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen. It explores the themes of life, death and love through the characters of The Little Mermaid and the Evil Sea Witch. I've also included a little blue and yellow fish in this one too! :)

And lastly I did a Cinderellla piece! "Cinderella - Something Magical Awaits"

She has been slaving away in the castle, dusting the cinders from the fireplace, and talking to her mice friends. Just when she thought all hope was lost, she begins to sense that something magical is awaiting her...

 Since the birth of Baby A in March, I have taken a step back from my art business to focus on him, and the only art I've really been dedicated to has been finishing these three main paintings for the exhibition. It took more than a few late nights, but it was worth it in the end.

While the exhibition has been on this week it's been a relief not to have a deadline to work to and I've taken any late night opportunities to just enjoy working away at a couple of little paintings which I will put up in my eBay store in the coming week. There's also a couple of commissioned paintings in the works. :) 

 No more formal exhibitions for the year though. Phew!
