It’s a belief of mine that we should live every moment of our lives with fun, laughter, and joy. Some would say live life with passion!
Portraits That Bite offers to share passion with you through stunning colourful Australian Flora and Fauna paintings and Custom Pet Portraits.
Jacarandas, not Australian natives, flower in October in Brisbane Australia where I live, and they are absolutely beautiful creating huge umbrellas of soft purply blue and dropping blooms to the ground below creating a gorgeous carpet of colour. Before they finish flowering, I plan on wearing my new Jacaranda coloured Cycling jersey and laying down amidst the carpet of blooms to get a photo. (Watch this space as the joyful but crazy photo is coming.) Awesome!! Yay!!
All artworks on paper must be framed behind glass to protect them from the environment. Humidity, sunlight, dust, and pests like silverfish can damage artworks on paper unless they are protected.
Pastel artworks framed behind glass have endured since the 16th century so if you frame your print it should last more than a lifetime.
Being creative is a type of growth as I learn something new from every artwork I produce. Perhaps it makes me feel a little powerful to be in control of how a painting is going to look. Ha ha. Yes, I am a control freak. However, I also believe that we all need to live life to the fullest and I find creating something new, from scratch is a lot of fun. It is exciting.
My love of literature inspires me to write poetry so I have begun to write poems to go with each painting I create some of which you may already read on this website.
Now that I have just finished a painting of a Unicorn for my next grandchild’s nursery, I am excited about my next creation. Will it be a whale, wombat, possum, kangaroo, or an emu?
