Something old, something new…

The last Three Muses Challenge set for 2009! Made me think about what I have done this year – the painting class I took with Julie Prichard which re-awakened a desire to paint; the bookmaking class and art journalling Supernova workshop in September which brought a whole new skill set plus an introduction to Art Journals.

I still enjoy collage and altered art, but I am now drawn to watercolour painting too! For the first time in ages, my table upstairs is very tidy and I have packaged up a lot of unwanted supplies. (A definite new departure for me!!) Some of these are up for sale on Heavenly Auctions and some are for the grandchildren of/and friends!

Anyway, here’s my interpretation of the theme:

So, yes, although the altered page is from the old girls’ annual and layer painted with acrylics, suddenly there’s a landscape and valkyries in there too! If you saw my previous post, you’ll understand…

Happy New Year to you all out there in Bloglandia! I’m looking forward to painting my Guardian Angel next week!! 😉

  10. Hi and Happy New Year Rosie!! I love your Valkyries! Gorgeous. You wouldn’t believe how appropriate this is for me – or coincidental or synchronistic. I’m not sure what it is but I’ve been having Valkyries come up in my conversations these entire last 2 weeks! And then I come here and see you talking about them! Very cool.

  11. Great use of color, very creative! Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed your post!

  12. I have only one question for you, Rosie. What do you do in your spare time? My goodness, your life must be so full of creativity and energy. Fantastic. Your Valkyrie piece is sensational. You are so talented and it is going to be a very good year for your fans to see your resolution to paint in many and varied ways take shape.
    Happy New Year!
