Whimsical love...and drawings....

Today I am loving these whimsical pieces.
I have been keeping an eye out for something totally different in the lighting department for The Sweat Shop and have found not a lot to inspire me.
These I adore though!
The floaty white, gauzy fabric and a different shape to what is normally seen
...wonder if I could rig something up Ness-style?

I have just finished a calligraphy piece for my coming photo wall in a similar style.
My piece is about stars, but I really like this as I am usually creating in socks with a cup hot Chai tea
so, it is true!

now this, I am smitten by!
Just perfect.
I love the hints of raw edges, that natural raw-ness of the fabrics and the patterns they have chosen.
A long time ago I had plans for a cover similar, made from pieces given to me by my Grandmothers, Mics Grandmother, my Aunts, my Mum and Mics Mum.

First things first...the photo wall!
I was recently digging through my ooooold art files and found some early work of mine that I think should go on this wall as a reminder of that basic love to create.
This is a hint of a series of drawings of myself and Mic, when we were just dating, inspired by photo booth pictures (you know the little series of instant prints?)

This one was a very quick sketch I done of a Rose from a memory in my head of the detail a rose has.
Turned out ok!

...and even though this was an unfinished piece, I LOVE this.
I have always loved to draw Renaissance images and this is one of Michelangelo's works from the Sistine Chapel if I remember correctly.
....this has inspired to me to make some time to get this done.
Always loved the heavy drapery that he done.
This is proof that nothing I do is the "way"
No, maybe not...but it is "my way"
I hope to get this wall o' mine done this weekend...hope it turns out!


  1. Hi Ness,

    I found your early drawings to be so beautiful and so inspiring but most of all a small window to see something personal of you.

    You are very talented and am glad you have embraced all of your talents.

    Good things are happening!

    Take care

  2. Wow Ness, you are so talented. I hope you frame some of those beauties to keep the creative juices flowing.

  3. Ness, your work is amazing!! Beautiful and I love your new blog look and photo. xo

  4. So love your work...such a talent, and the lighting in the first image is amazing. You need to dream them up and sell them to me!!

  5. Far too much talent to take in on one viewing , I will have to pop back again tomorrow ;)
