Painting Progress and studio overhaul!

"Sing me a song of the circus" is coming along slowly but surely and I am really enjoying how beautifully she is turning out. This painting makes me really happy even in its' unfinished state!
The little bird came out so sweet and enchanting, the perfect bird for setting such a scene. If you have a free spirited love of the Circus, please take a glimpse at other Circus themed paintings that I have created... most of them have sold, but I am always more than happy to create works of a similar nature if you have a favourite... and I can always arrange a print to canvas if you desire!

My studio is undergoing a massive clean up and overhaul at persent and I recently picked up this new cupboard (which just refused to be posted upright!!!) and it is as I write this being sanded, sprayed and spiffied right up to become my new art storage cupboard. Yippee. Wait till you see the transformation.

Finally, a sweet scented thankyou to Amanda at Flax Flower for the beautiful flowers that she provided me with this week to keep my house beautiful and smelling great...
Roses and Jonquils with a clean white linen feel and a pretty red and white ribbon. Fresh flowers really lift one's spirits, don't you think?

Thanks for reading,
Tara Spicer.

Sing me a song of the circus...

For those of you who know me, you will know that I am a little obsessed with the magic of the circus!... And this obsession has been fueled further by an incredible book that I recently read "The Night Circus" . I am re-kindling my love of Fire Stick Twirling and trapeze too, doing a practice session each week, hopefully to light up the ends soon for a mini performance for my kids :-)

This passion has seeped into my paintings as well... here is my latest work in progress, titled "Sing me a circus song". I hope that you do enjoy watching it grow:

This painting is still in the making, but if you want to know more details, it is an oil painting on Gallery Cotton, measuring 40 x 30 inches.

Other circus works that I have previously painted are:

So roll up, ROLL UP and dive into the magic of the circus be it one of these beautiful works to grace your walls and inspire your heart... or your own dabbling into a local circus class... it is good for the soul :-)

Warm Regards,
Tara Spicer.
