Maybe when the great creator designed the universe the aurora borealis occurred when the pen leaked all over the dark parchment of the sky…⁠
.⁠
Sometimes a story like that helps me paint the things I see and feel with more fluidity.⁠

‘Many Moons To Go’ – Day 356/365

I don’t know where I was this last full moon but I clearly wasn’t looking up at the sky.⁠
So for my last full moon of the year, I decided to repaint a similar one to the blood moon in the beginning, because I loved it so much and also to bookend how much my style has changed. (If you feel like it – have a scroll back and let me know if you prefer the tighter style or this looser one – I’d appreciate your artist appreciation eye 👀)⁠
.⁠
Usually, we reflect on the saying ‘many moons ago’ only in retrospection. But I do very much hope I still have many moons of strange, rewarding and sometimes downright difficult painting projects ahead of me.⁠

‘The Goat’ – Day 355/365

ORIGINAL COPY POSTED ON INSTAGRAM DURING THE CHALLENGE

Tomorrow we leap into Capricorn season and I for one am beyond lucky because both my best friends are stubborn, salt of the earth goats. Both have seen me through some of the toughest, most transformative experiences of my life thus far and I feel extremely grateful for their friendships.⁠
.⁠
And with that, my very last Zodiac constellation of the year!! I’ve really enjoyed the rhythm and reminder of honouring these changes in the stars and I hope you’ve enjoyed the minis that have ensued.⁠
.⁠
Give your best naughty goat friend a good chin scratch – and maybe if you have one in your life, thank them for giving you horns when you doubted your own strength.⁠

10 Days left of this magical challenge… Deep breath… here we go…🙏🏼⁠

Still working on those trippy colour blends.⁠
Maybe one day I’ll grow a little tree in that valley?⁠
.⁠
Any suggestions for a nice silhouette in there? ⁠

Smashing Friday to all you lovely lovely hoooooomans and all the caring messages you’ve been sending me.⁠
.⁠
You’re giving me all the happy heart vibes! Thank you!⁠

A sky the colour of my crystal:⁠

Amaranthine – undying, immortal and eternally beautiful⁠

but also⁠
⁠ – a deep purple-red.⁠

Hmm🤔⁠
