Cheers everyone to the final few hours of 2017, I wish you all a happy new year!

Personally I'm really excited about 2018, how about you?

This was one of my final online assessments where I had to paint a realistic portrait from the reference provided (the teacher's daughter). This took me 60+ hours, but I was very happy with the result at the end, and surprised myself.

Reflecting on 2017

I feel like I achieved a lot in 2017. I entered challenges, a competition, I launched my 'World Travelling' & traditional art website and online shop

I am now getting into blogging, learning about video editing, how to do better photography...

I've learned about who I am as an individual by taking a new personality assessment (which I will post about soon), I completed my first colour wall mural, painting a mermaid on the walls of a bar/restaurant in Palm Beach, Gold Coast Australia, and much more!

I'm excited for 2018 as I have big travel and art plans ahead. But first I want to share with you what I consider to be my best artwork of 2017. Are you ready? In no particular order...

Impressive art! If i could only choose one it would be "Isle of mystery", altough i could change at last minute to "Entering Leo". Both are my favorites :)


Thank you! I almost made 'Entering Leo' the main photo of the blog post, but in the end I decided to go for one with colour. I'm glad you like 'Isle of Mystery', you're the first person to comment on that piece! :)

nice work hppy new year


Thank you! Happy New Year to you too!
