Hey there friends,

I've been meaning to post pictures of these finished mini.skyscapes for a couple weeks now.
So here they are - my recently painted lil' beauties (5"x7").
(You may remember how I finally got to crack back into painting during my 'heART therapy' recently).

I'm really pleased with how these turned out.
I keep trying to 'free' my painting approach to looser brush strokes, hints of landscapes and subtle layers of colour washes.
Based on my past style of paintings... it's nice to see this transition.

I'm hoping to build up a new collection of mini pieces like this for another show.
Small is manageable during the kid's nap times!

It's also more feasible for people's bank book.  I know a lot of people over the years have expressed the desire to own some of my works... (so smaller pieces are easier to purchase for those who can't justify selling their first-born for one)!

If you're interested in a piece/commission... you can always contact me.

Creatively yours,
Mel ;o)


  1. They're lovely Mel. Well done! ♥

  2. Mel! I just went through all of your paintings and was blown away. I seriously had no idea you were such a talented painter on top of everything else. Gorgeous! Keep up the amazing work, mama!

  3. Ha! Aww, thanks muchos! Yep... all those 'headings' in the side bar of my page under "My creative works"... are just that. This blog was originally going to be my online 'portfolio'.. and then, um, I started writing blog posts every day instead! ;o) xx

  4. Hey thanks! Are you doing much painting lately?? xx
