Cute Cat on Wooden Goddess

I've been working on a stylised cat for some of the products that I sell on-line but also wanted to paint originals of these and so the cat made it's way onto a Wooden Goddess that my partner makes.

Here are a couple of my paintings and a finished piece that has made it's way to a dear friend for her birthday 😘.

Beautiful Goddess Ornaments

I love this time of year when I can develop new projects that have been on my mind, finish other projects and generally catch up and re-focus my energies.

I have been working on a couple of things at the moment and wanted to share my latest creations.

Painted Goddesses
Here is a closer look at 2 that I am selling at the moment. The others are waiting for a varnish and then need to dry. So they will be available in a couple of days.

These are made of hard wood that has been cut and sanded by my partner and then I have painted onto the wood using acrylic paints and pen. The fronts are then varnished. Here are some of my progress pictures:

Finished and Unfinished Pieces

Each one is totally unique as they are all hand painted and decorated. Each little hare has his own character and is made with the intention to bring peace, harmony and love to you, your home and your sacred space. They are approx. 8"x2.25" (20cmx5.5cm). I will be selling on Facebook and also in my partner's Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/EarthrayneCrafts

Beautiful Chakra Paintings

I attended an Awakened Belly Dance Course over seven weeks and produced a piece of artwork each week to record the experience. These are painted on A4 art board using watercolours and pen. They each took about one and a half days to create. Prints and merchandise will be available to buy from my on-line shops soon.

Seven Hand Drawn Chakra Mandalas

The beginners in my belly dancing class were asked to decorate the stage, so as well as making loads and loads of huge pom poms for our Tribal bunting, I created seven hand drawn mandalas to hang up. These were created on A3 canvas using black sharpies, and gold, silver and bronze pens. I don't think I will ever get fed up of drawing mandalas. I love most things with lots of patterns and texture. However, it was quite difficult drawing on canvas as my pens kept dragging on the deep texture. Still, they came out okay. They took about 4 hours each to complete. Cards and merchandise will be available on my online shops soon.
