New painting. So there.

Umm... started a new painting. Not sure where it's going. It's making me nervous. I can't tell if it looks like river rocks, fish scales, or leopard print. I guess all these things make me happy, but... I can't help but feel like I'm at a bit of a standoff. Lots of staring and sighing at this point. Productive, I know!

My idea is to do a salmon painting (if you guessed rocks of some sort, you would be correct!), and even a live salmon! Maybe fish heads too, but... mostly just it's being alive. It is also supposed to touch on animal guidance and our hyper emotional, hardly perceptive attention of surroundings and connections, and failure to balance spiritual understanding to the objective. It is also still playing with ideas of biological emotion and our limitations within it. Especially as believers that bodily experiences can be divine.

I'll try not to resort to a big bloody fishy mess on this one. I might even try some other colours. Get a little wild.

Rachelle's work leaves home

Well well well, Blog. I remember you. And all the guilt you bring me whenever people ask if they can view some of my art online. It's excruciatingly embarrasing to say, "Yes, I have some online, but the site has not been updated in over a year." And here's the clincher - I want people to be able to see all the work! Shame on me (3 hail Mary's?).

Here is a deposit of images.


Here is a deposit of images that reflect the paintings that I recently hung in a fabulous coffee shop in Victoria called Solstice Cafe (529 Pandora Street). I am so excited and proud to have some of my work on display, and in such a cool place! Let's put it this way... they have an award on the wall for being the best place in Victoria to breastfeed. And the food is amazing. And the tea... don't get me started. But either way, here's an update of what I've been up to, and I intend to dedicate some efforts to keep this website in better shape.
PS: If you actually click on the images above, they should expand so you can see bigger images. Also, anything with fish heads in it tends to be newer work. Cheers all!
