Positive Theory

The festival of romance maybe over, but can we hold onto the slow dance of roses a little while longer. Valentine’s Day is more than just unveiling your love for someone else. It’s about honoring love and manifesting some of it for yourself. However, this shouldn’t happen once a year. Leaving you with a quote…

Colour Of The Month: Red

To get my colour game going, I’m starting a new colour of the month series. To begin I’m pairing February with red. Yes, a large part of February is painted with red thanks Valentine’s Day. But I’m not thinking of John Paul Young’s song “love is in the air”. Growing up in London, I’d see…

New Beginnings

Congratulations, we made it out of cold, gloomy January. The month lasted 60 elongated days. I feel like we expect too much from January, the month of abandoned resolutions and forgotten diet promises we made before festive feasts. But now it’s finally February, we can get on with the year and fitly restart our resolutions….

Colour me beautiful

Colour talks, I’d like for it to work with me, not against me. Picking the right palette is like going back to school; spending hours going over different schemes and learning the theory behind them. I have good and bad hue days. There are times where I’ve chosen a wrong palette and have only noticed…

The Mindful Artist.

I’m all for living a healthy, nutritious lifestyle and believe true beauty comes from within. Therefore, I make sure I intake enough of the right supplements. I ordered some vitamins from Advanced Nutrition Programme. Which arrived this week in an adorable box and packaged in lovely tins; one side of the invoice looked like it…

Living Coral

A little something to brighten up my year. In contrast to Pantone’s colour of 2018, ultra violet. A vibrant, mellow colour has taken its place. Embracing 2019 with warmth, Living Coral aka Pantone 16-1546 comes as an optimistic relief. The playful hue has cheerfully made its way on to my mood board. Evoking a desert…

Going through memory lane

It’s coming to a month since we said goodbye to 2018. Here I’ve stitched together a 3 by 3 of my favourite artwork from last year. Feeling a little nostalgic, I took a walk down memory lane; spending some time looking over past posts, whilst planning for new content. Looking back, I wasn’t afraid of…

New Year, New Goals

Here’s to 2018, an unforgettable year. The year I started my blog, began entering competitions and gained new skills. I’m ready for 2019, I do hope it’s as exciting and opens new doors for me. I tiptoed into the New Year in my pyjamas and headed straight to bed. The entertainment was in my mind…

Happy One Year

This is exciting. Boxing Day marks my blog “Blame it on Art’s” one year anniversary. Although I properly started blogging in June, would this mean I get two anniversaries? A year ago I excitedly hit Publish and today I’m toasting to that. I started this blog to share my art, photography and my love for…

Merry-full Art

The advent calendar is completely empty, Santa’s been and gone, the gifts are all un-boxed, feasters are going for seconds and chillers are binging on Netflix with a cup of white hot chocolate. feeling a little festive this season, I gave the silhouette mandala’s some sparkle, by turning them into baubles. Each bauble is filled…
