Good Morning!

I have received many emails over the last month wondering "Where did Sidhe Go?".

Well, I was very ill with a kidney infection. Come to find out I am a crystal growing kit. LOL It seems I have a ton of kidney stones and they caused a "back up", then kidney infection. So I got a week in the hospital and two surgeries.

What is important? I'm all better and back to splattering paint to the four winds.

What did I learn?

1. A constant back ache....not good.

2. Drink way more water.

3. Real Lemonade helps break down stones. Who knew!

Thank you everyone for your kindness and love!

Autumn is the beginning of my Christmas Season.

I am one of the people who had a super, extra, crappy childhood. But, I was also weird and still believed in miracles, angles, fairies, witches and aliens. Pretty much anyone who could rescue a wayward soul. The one time of year this feeling was strongest was Christmas. And It was around Christmas when most of my miracles happened. So, low and behold, I grew up to be a bit of a Christmas nut. LOL My kids don't mind, but I have been asked to wait until Autumn to begin decorating. In fact every year we have a vote on skipping the Halloween decorations and going straight to Christmas. giggles I usually lose and must hold on until after trick or treating.

I really do enjoy Halloween so it's not a super loss.

For me though....... The Christmas feeling starts with today. Not the first day of Autumn, but the way today feels. It's about 65 degrees today, dark and drizzly. And, I know that it's just the beginning. Snow and sweaters are just around the corner and it won't be long, before it's time for a fire in fire place. I'll bake a pie today, mostly because I want the smell of nutmeg and cinnamon swirling through the house. And of course I didn't get much Halloween painting done before I went straight to Christmas. I am not a religious person.....much more spiritual.....so that's not what Christmas is about for me. It's about the feeling of impending Miracles. Knowing that people try a bit harder to be nice. I love the feel of it, the twinkling lights, bright happy colors, homey smells, jolly laughter.

So, I , Sidheforest will be in my Santa's Workshop. Building, painting, sewing, and enjoying my already Christmas Season.

Up, Up and Away is the second full Sidheforest world I created. After Ozmosis, I wanted to get started right away on the next new world, but was obessed with bubbles. So first off the color palette changed to match my "bubble" concept that was stuck in my head at the time. Then of course I had to have trees. LOL The mushrooms came in only after I had to painting almost done and decided that there was not enough going on.

Ok....If I can stopping laughing and blushing to type.......The "balloons" that I added to the picture obviously do not look like ballons, but much more like little floating sperm. OMG.....oh well.... The painting well loved no matter how falic my silly subconscious wants to make it.
Tuesday, July 29th 2008   -   By: noreply@blogger.com (Sidhe K)   -   sidheforest.blogspot.com

Osmosis was born with the desire to create painting with more depth and elements working together to create a new world. I having been working on discovering different elemets that I love and that work for me as an artist. In Ozmosis I have combined several of the elements that I love to create, such as the planet trees, and little catapillar. This is the first full Sidheforest World painting, in a what I hope will be a long line to come.

My Work Space for creating dreams! LOL

I bought this fabulous vinyl table cloth so that I don't have to care about how much paint gets on the table. If someone is truely determined to actually eat at the table, they usually need special permission to move a painting. My daughters cleaned off most of the table to take this picture. Most days there are at least two large painting on it at a time.

and this is the kitchen island where I have anouther painting in mid creation.

I would love to hear about your creation space!

The idea for this new collection, that I have only just stared, was actually given to me by a drawing that my ten yr old son gave me. They range in size from 5" x 7" to 22" x 28". They are all created with Water colors and Premium Acrylic on stretched wrapped canvas.

"Monsters" have been such a fun little group to create, and are quickly becoming one of my favorite collections .
