I hope you are all safe and well. Life has had a low vibe for me recently as I work though some health issues, but that hasn’t stopped my creativity.
First of all I completed a portrait of “Earth Deer Spirit”, my main guide at this time in my life. He revealed himself to me on a rainy afternoon, while drumming under a young Oak tree. He smells of rain and earth, is as dependable as a Yew, and speaks with the voice of the land.
I will have a selection of prints and cards to buy in person soon.
I was asked by a friend Martyn to create a custom piece of art for his new business, “Green Fuse Garden”. Following on the popularity of grow your own veg, Martyn is wanting to encourage people to grow their own cut flowers. This will be of benefit to our local ecosystems, and bring beauty to our doorsteps.
Finally, I am happy to announce that my “Milk Comes From Mothers” design is available to buy on apparel from Bohemian Hippy. 100% of the profits go to establishing Lotus Heart Sanctuary, a safe place for cattle. At present the design is only advertised on a small number of items, however you can email Bohemian Hippy to choose any style of t-shirt or hoodie.
I was given a Voltron t-shirt by my partner. It was far too big for me, so I had been wearing it as pyjamas. Of course, since people had found out I learning to use a sewing machine they had suggested I just resize it.
*just* resize it
I found a great tutorial online by GlamourZen, and today was the day I bit the bullet.
I wish I had taken before pictures of my Voltron t-shirt so you can appreciate the massive change made. It’s not perfect. I actually made it too small, especially across my chest, but I am planning to lose weight. I know for next time to cut my t-shirt a bit larger allow for my clumsy seams!
