Street Beat WIP



HI, I am sorry that it has taken me so long to post something and that something isn't even finished yet. I have been very busy, I am working full time and the kids have been on school holidays. They have just gone back to school. I think that the break was so long, maybe that is how the teachers plan it, to wear the kids out from too much fun time. They have actually enjoyed getting back to school.

This picture, while still requiring finishing is from a little excursion my daughter and I took in to the city. I have previously painted another view of this street. It is one of my favourite alley ways in Melbourne.

I hope to capture the business of the street and the excitement and fun. Looking forward to another busy year ahead. I am studying again, as I have started working in another area which I am enjoying and at present working full time. I need to find some time to get some painting done. So I hope to keep you posted with the finished rpoduct of this painting soon.

wow Kay, sounds like a busy year for you. Love your streetscapes, always such beautiful colour, but nothing clashes, takes talent for that.

Heh Kay....it sounds like you have had the exact same couple of months as I've had. Kids home...they're bored...and of course 'we' don't get any painting done. Good to see you gettin' back into it...this one should be good...I'm looking forward to it progressing..

Welcome back, Kay! This picture really caught my eye when I saw it on my blog list. The color is so vibrant and dramatic and I love the lines of the street, leading the eye in. You are a very busy lady, so hopefully you will find some time for more painting.

Hi Jade, thanks for the lovely comments. Yes I feel a bit over whelmed. What I really want to do is create art, not all the other stuff. Unfortunately work is what pays the bills.
Hi Amanda, thanks for dropping by. School holidays are difficult to find time for yourself. I love your site and thanks for dropping by.
HI Catherine, thank you for your positive comments. I had started another picture prior to this but it ended up in the bin. If they don't work from the start they just don't seem to work.I hope I do find time to paint I think I am driven to do some artist things. It balances my life.
