Latest from the Bohemian Couch: New Art

Well I have been doing a lot of healing over the past 2 1/2 years and I'm happy to say that I am emerging out of the dark side and back into the light! Its so refreshing when the spring time of growth follows the long grey winter.
During the time following the death of my son I have been creating art for healing and have recently come to a new phase in my creations. I have been asked to commission some pieces for people based on some of the painting and mixed media pieces that I have done. I have also put my art in a local gallery for sale.
I have officially quit my job and am now a full time artist. Fun times ahead I am sure!
My latest piece is a mixed media angel and although it was so hard to release her for sale, it was an important step in this new phase of growth and healing.

I do apologize for the quality of this photo but I had to snap a quick picture of her before handing her over the art gallery! She is an original painting in acrylic with mixed media and painted background. She is 11 x 14 and currently for sale through me for $200.00 or through the art gallery for $240.00

I am accepting commissioned work for similar angels or can work with photographs and a mixed media background. The sky is the limit for whatever your needs are. I have used pressed flowers as a permanent keep sake in the background for remembrance after a death, wedding, christening, engagement, etc.

On this journey I have come to realize how important it is to memorialize special occasions in our lives or for healing the deepest grief. I often use encaustic methods with wax to permanently seal the background so that it becomes a timeless piece of art. I can also use scraps of fabric from a wedding gown, christening gown or the like.

Guardian angels are strong reminders that we are forever guided and watched over and I feel honored and humbled to be in charge of such an important process of peoples healing or celebration of life.

I will attempt to get past pictures uploaded along with updates on new works and what is happening in my little slice of heaven.

I hope this post finds you happy, healthy and healed.

As always I close this with LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
