The life of a painting - the journey from sketch to full fruition final painting...

I thought it would be nice to make a post about process and track one of my paintings from this year to see how in fact it came to be. Keep reading to view the visual journey from rough line drawing doodle to final painting hanging on a gallery wall!


Simple rough lines that is all you need to birth an idea! Don't worry about being perfect just get the thought down on paper document it so it can grow from there!

The Painting started as a simple line drawing doodle in my book and grew from there... words also play a role in my image making and the title of this painting wanted to be a poem... here it is:


'Rooted Dreamers dwell on Gliders, 

sometimes making life feel harder.

Feeling stuck and struggling,

looking up can be disheartening.

The Gliders float by so freely,

making one feel quite uneasy.

They see the world and pass us by, 

rooted in our ways we cry.

Oh how wondrous it would be,

to fly above the world with ease.

But blossoms grow and life is lush,

there is beauty that’s surrounding us.

Sometimes we forget this

because struggles feel so tall.

But throughout difficult times

there’s a song inside us all.

We push forward growing anew,

for life is beautiful here too!'
