"Wanderlust" is allmost finished!

This painting is almost done. I just need to decide, if I want a blackbird sitting on the branch. 
What do you think?

Work-in-progress painting "Songs from Anneland: Wanderlust"

What did the fox say?

Fox encourages you to think outside the box and use your intelligence in different and creative ways

I am working on this painting, and as always, I like to show you how I start a painting, and how it evolves before it´s finished.
The painting is in my traditional style, a moonlight dreamscape with whimsical trees. This time I´m working on some animals in there too.
Under the tree, guarding the entrance to the Underworld, is a beautyful fox.
I met this little fellow on a shamanic drum journey, and I just wanted to manifest him in this painting. The fox helped me on my journey to the Underworld, and I just felt a friendship with it. It´s a young fox, energetic, happy and playfull.
The title is "Wanderlust". I want to wander into new adventures, both on inner levels and in real life. I want to explore different states of consciousness. After reading about the symbolic meaning of the fox totem, I realize that the title is connected to the animal totem.

It always amazes me, what happens when we unravel the mind´s clutter, and true wisdom occurs!

The white lines on the painting are chalk. I use it to try different ideas before painting them into the motive.It´s really easy to wash off again. 

I´m planning on panting all day tomorrow, so perhaps I can show you the final results ;-)

Welcome Spring 2014

Amanda Clark ( Earth Angels Art)

The snow has all melted
And winter has gone, 
Now Nature is singing
Springs’ most beautiful song;
As we honor the Goddess -
The Devine Eostre, 
While she breathes her life
Into the birds and the bees;
She's fertile and loving
Ancient Mother is she
From the youngest child
To the oldest tree

-Lady Caer Morganna

Michelle´s portrait finished!

My daughter´s portrait painting is finished. This process has been soo much fun, because I have never ever painted anything like this, and I really like how it ended up!

As always it is painted on a streched canvas, with acrylic paint, and it measures 72x 65 cm.

Update 9/3-2014
I forgot to credit the artist that inspired this painting;

Portrait almost finished!

This is my daughter's portrait. I don't think she quite likes it, but I think it is rather cool! I only need to paint hair and some minor details and then it's done! What do you think?
