New Projects, Focused Days and Old Technology ~ Sunray Sister

Hello, Welcome back, how have you been? How is September going so far? Happy full moon! As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm now publishing blog posts once a month on the full moon, rather than weekly. This month has been good for me so far: I'm slowly getting things back to normal, creating [...]

Sunny Walks, Reading Books and Changes Coming… ~ Sunray Sister

Hello, Just when you think everything is settled and things are going smoothly... WHAM!!! Life comes and smacks you in the face. Well, apologies for sounding so dramatic, but right now that's how I feel. I suppose times like these remind you that there aren't many things in life that are certain. We are born [...]

Daily routines, monthly goals and saving for the future ~ Sunray Sister

Hello, I hope you are well. Happy new month! And new moon! The waxing season is here, and with it a fresh surge of energy. Can you feel it? This week I have been working hard (at my new day-job) and resting hard... and not doing much else in between! So this week's blog is [...]

Serving Others, Another New Portrait and Rediscovering What Matters ~ Sunray Sister

Hello, Another week has come and gone! I hope it has gone well for you. It's been pretty good over here. I worked on another portrait commission, this time of a beloved horse, not a person! I'm so pleased with the result. With every piece I create, I get a little bit better and learn [...]

New Moon Energy, Blooming Hydrangeas and Beatrix Potter ~ Sunray Sister

Hello, This week has flown by! There are so many new things on the horizon; things that I've taken endless steps towards, wished and prayed for, almost given up on, and then things that just come out of nowhere! Plus this new moon and waxing season seems to amplify the energy even more. I don't [...]

Portrait illustration and sunny days ~ Sunray Sister

Hello, It's been a nice week, full of family and friends, and just nice people and special moments. Isn't that how all weeks should be? How have the past seven days been for you? In my last blog I mentioned a secret illustration; well, since it has now been received by its new owner, I [...]

Hello, The weeks seem to be flying by this month... and the rain seems to be never ending! How are things with you? On Monday I went on my second official 'Artist's Date', this time on a walk along the canal, where I spotted a majestic heron and did a quick sketch of it before [...]
