Here I am looking after the Kumeu Art Centre’s affordable art exhibition this morning - every piece under $400 until 20 December. Some beautiful moments in so many of the pieces... I’ll post more of them next post, due to the 10 pic Insta limit 😁 . #arwenflowerskiwiartist #artistsoninstagram #kumeuartcentre #kumeuartscentre #nzart #nzartists #affordableart #supportlocal #aucklandart #exhibition

Working on bubbles of light... . #fridayartday #bursting #happybubbles #lovelightplay #makeart

I can forgive the hail, thunder, lightning and wind... it’s snowing roses and plumming plums, and the peaches are peachy too so all is good with the garden. Don’t mention actual weeding. #artistslife #artistdiary #garden #spring #roses #plummy

This piece is coming along, happier with it now and enjoying layering up the paint. . #arwenflowerskiwiartist #artist #nzartist #artistsoninstagram #artistsofig #portrait #acrylicpainting #workinprogress

‘Guardian’, one of my pieces from Bethells Beach, Auckland. Visit www.kiwiartist.com for more info. PS.

Some random experiments with metallics today, this one using an old monotype+alternative photography artwork. Not resolved on it, but wanted to give it a go. . #arwenflowerskiwiartist #artist #nzartist #workinprogress #mixedmedia #artonpaper #metallics #experimentalart #makeart #shrug

‘Protect this soft Nikau heart’, 610x610, oil on canvas. One of my favourites from my Mandala series. Check web in bio if you’re interested. Free shipping NZ. . #arwenflowerskiwiartist #mandala #oilpainting #nikau #nzart #nzartist #artistsoninstagram

It’s a start, just underpainting. I wanted to make something different from the typical landscapes I’ve done for a while. 600x600. #arwenflowerskiwiartist #artist #nzartist #artistsoninstagram #artistsofig #portrait #acrylicpainting #workinprogress

Deep breath. I’m up to gridding. This is the only way I can focus to go over literally every square inch to make sure I’m happy with paint coverage/detail up close, while not getting distracted and roving from one spot to another. Once this is done I step back, make a few adjustments and it’s all done. Oh, it sounds so simple lol. . #arwenflowerskiwiartist #paintinginprogress #acrylicpainting #artistsofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #grid #artstudio #patience #mindfuck #sorrynotsorry

Today’s experiment. I’m trying to imagine this as a portion of a much bigger piece. . #arwenflowerskiwiartist #experimentalart #smallart #nzartist #artistsoninstagram #nikau #mixedmediaart

OMG it’s freakin doing my head in! Artist mental meltdown. How do realists cope with their high detail work? This is bad enough.

😍 my painting puppy mate Louie. Too distractingly cute! His brother is sleeping so he’s got no one to play with. . #arwenflowerskiwiartist #puppy #painting #studioday #womansbestfriend
