2014 update...

To be honest, I forgot this blog was here. My bad. Since my last post in February a hell of a lot has gone down, so here is a compact update of my arty (and non-arty) shenanigans! 

The first half of my year was really spent planning my wedding...Which is kind of art, so shhh. My beloved and I were wed by our dear friend Erikka under a 100 year old chesnut tree, on a sunny New Zealand day, surrounded by our most treasured friends and family.

The painting below has slowly but surely been driving me mad. Well, madder. I just can't get it right. After months of umming and ahhing I decided to bite the bullet and just start it again. From scratch. Yup. I hate myself. God willing it will be finished soon. Or I will die. One of those things will happen. 

That's a pretty accurate depiction of me with my sweet Doc Martens, howling in despair.

I painted Chaos...

I painted The Contemplation of Saturn...

And I've NEARLY finished her sister-painting! Watch this space. Maybe. 

I joined tumblr, and it's become a serious problem. But the kind I don't want help with. http://vivienmasters.tumblr.com/

Oh, and just casually, the husband-creature got a job in the States so we're moving to New York. In 8 weeks. Just casually. 

This image sums up both the United States of Amercia AND how I feel about moving there. Nifty.
