A Sneak Pictorial Peek at Painting no. 6 in the Rock Art Series

The Collection that Stood the Test of Time

After many moons, I have picked up paint brush and spray can and started painting no. 6 of my Rock Art Series (there are going to be 10 painting all told).

If you want to recap on the grand adventure of subliminal painting to my favourite musicians of all time, please CLICK HERE.

I think I first promised myself that I would have this series done by June 2013 — fat laugh that was!  Then the next D-date was December 2013 — another dashed hope.

Art on Wizards Time 

Just like Gandalf (who proclaimed that a wizard is never late and always arrives exactly when he intends to), I am going to let these paintings emerge in their own divine time (as long as it’s within my lifetime!).

But, at least I can say I am more than half way now!

Yippeeeeeee…so, without further ado — painting no. 6 was produced by listening to the melodious and mesmerizing Templeton (and, no, I’m not just saying that because he’s my husband — go listen and decide for yourself).

You can visit his aural delights here: TempletonUniverse.

Templeton Rocks the Canvas

I am just going to be showing you snippets of the painting because Wednesday’s blog is going to be the start-to-finish photographic process and the grand reveal — so do stay tuned (or follow this blog if you aren’t already) :D.

So, here is a little taste just to whet your appetite:

1 2 3 4

Well, I hope you are intrigued.

5Until next week when I get out of the way of the focal point of the painting (see photo on your right where I have cunningly concealed the weirdest thing I have painted to date that has consequently unearthed a lot of Egyptian myth?  Very titillating stuff indeed!  I promise to reveal all) — you’ll have to try to put the pieces together and see what on earth (or, perhaps, not on earth) has planted itself onto my canvas.

Oh, the mystery of it all!  All will be revealed soon though, so hang onto those knickers!!!

Adieu, my patient amigos…

Templeton’s Headspace — Creating the CD Artwork for a Rock Star!

Hail to one of the most amazing albums my ears have had the pleasure to experience!

“He is really pushing the boundaries of auditory excellence.”

If you haven’t heard it yet, I strongly suggest you visit Templeton’s site (http://templetonuniverse.com/news.cfm) and have a snoop around, I believe he is offering some FREE MP3 DOWNLOADS over there — all you have to do is become a member (just click on ‘not a member?’ on the top right hand corner of the site to sign up — quick, easy and free).

Infinite Inspiration to Work From

I had so much to draw from whilst designing this album art — from Templeton’s cosmic new sounds to the history and messages behind his music.  This was actually easy to do because I had so much to work with.  He is really pushing the boundaries of auditory excellence.

This is the third album cover I have done for Templeton and this is his fourth album.

I am pleased to showcase all the artwork for this CD, from inlays to back cover,  that was the brainchild of Templeton and myself.

Here it goes:
