Helllllloooooooo! I have not blogged in over a month, dam blogger is still playing me up-am I the only one now? I have tried everything I can find but none of the so called 'fixes' have fixed it. I still have to sign in with internet explorer to post new stuff, but sign in with firefox to follow links to other peoples blogs and comment-what's going on?? I don't want to have to move my blog to another blog host site as 1: I can't be bothered, 2: I am still a bit of a techniphobe and 3:Blogger should fix this problem!
Anyway, enough ranting. I have been arting although not as much as usual (dam Pinterest!). Pinterest is such an inspiration but I find myself spending hours on there oohing and aahing over everything creative and then not actually creating anything myself!
I have started on a series of 3 canvas's (the canvas's were kindly given to me by Sarah's mum, thank you!).
They will be abstracty sort of paintings of the Maiden, Mother and Crone. They represent the stages of womanhood, the phases of the moon and the seasons.
The Maiden is young and fresh, spring is her time and the waxing moon is her phase.
Her energy is new and exciting and somewhat untamed (shown by the swirls).

The Mother has matured and is in her nurturing stage and the full moon phase (which you can't really see behind her head in this photo!). She is the end of summer and autumn and the harvest time. Her energy is more tamed and in control. I am hoping to get this one finished at the weekend and then I will make a start on the Crone.
I had a new tattoo done yesterday. I have been wanting a dragonfly tattoo on my wrist for a few years now as dragonfly is my totem animal but have never found the right one. The ones I like are big, detailed and beautiful so in making them small enough for my wrist they would lose all the detail that made them so pretty.
I went with Paige yesterday while she got her tattoo done and while browsing through the designs I found this little fellow. I asked them to change the colours for me as it HAD to be purple and I wanted the turquoise for the body. I am really pleased with it!
I have not managed to get my October calendar page done yet but I am making a note of what I have been up to each day so hopefully I can catch up, It seems silly to have kept up this far and not finish now.
