@joyousmisfit posted to Instagram: After weeks of preparing, ordering materials, creating samples, sleepless nights and more coffee than is healthy for a human, I'm almost ready to start my 2m x 3m commission painting similar to this mini version! If all goes well, I'm hoping to finish the painting in the next 2 weeks! You'll get to see the progress... I'll even share the process. I'm so excited... Perhaps you might like to join in and create something yourself at the same time! I hope… Almost Ready, Sleepless Nights, Join, It Is Finished, Coffee, Create, Healthy, Painting, Instagram

@joyousmisfit posted to Instagram: You know those moments where the world seems to crack open and you never see things the same way again? Mine happened when I got so frustrated by this painting 'not looking right' that I scraped it all off, let go and just let the mark's happen. I went with the process! And so, I finally understood abstract.

@joyousmisfit posted to Instagram: People often tell me that they can't 'DO' art... Because they don't - insert your excuse from the following: have talent, have the right equipment, have the time, have to wash their hair... or any other excuse that pops to mind! But I call Bullshit! For 10 years... YES 10 YEARS! I made all of these excuse, and do you know what changed... I had a mental breakdown!

@joyousmisfit posted to Instagram: The texture on this is beautiful. This hummingbird leaps off of the board and out of the painting. This was created with air-dried acrylic paint... which I actually had after applying a layer of colour and realising that I hated it! So I scraped it back and created this shape, this form, which was at first the woman hair. But when the painting changed, when the mood and the meaning behind it transformed, so did this, and it became a hummingbird <3 I love… Woman Hair, Hummingbird, Stuff To Do, How To Apply, Mood, Shape, Colour, Texture, Painting

@joyousmisfit posted to Instagram: 'Hummingbirds' 11x16" acrylic painting on wood panel This piece is joy reigniting. Art has a funny way of showing your insides... the way you are feeling. This piece started blue and green tones, she was fixed, dark and hollow, with a bare hint of warm purple at the edge... this was before the announcement of the exit plan to come out of lockdown. After this, it's as though something inside switched on again. The art completely changed.

@joyousmisfit posted to Instagram: 'Surrender' "The moment of surrender is not when life is over, it's when life begins" Marianne Williamson As a bit of a control freak and perfectionist (to terms contradictory to the label 'artist!), it took me a long time to realise this, and it is something that I strive to live by. It is so hard to surrender to the process, to be guided, rather than 'fighting for' everything.
