My Art Inspiration for this week…

Welcome to my art blog,

Here’s what is happening this week….


Creating on Paper

So at the weekend I bought some great quality paper to do some abstracts on,

I realise that everyone doesn’t want a canvas but would rather have a flat piece to frame,

I will be creating six to load to the shop this weekend,

Also I will do any commissions you would like in this format.

It has been very different to work on,

However I’ve had some amazing results so far.


Pebeo Studio Acrylics

I’ve been trying out these new paints for my new collection,

They create some really great colours and effects,

I especially love the iridescent paints which I haven’t come across before now,

Also the fluorescents which you all know I’m a bit obsessed with lately.

So there’s also a competition buy the company PEBEO,

I will be entering this in May for a gallery exhibit and cash prize,

Sounds great right!


Abstract Expressionism

So I’m trying to praise myself a bit more,

I’ve alway struggled with this my whole life,

I’m not sure why although I think I’m one of those people who finds it hard to live in the present,

Always thinking about the future,

My Expressionist work has helped me realise this,

My art has evolved so much over the last the last year since I decided to go full time,

It’s crazy to think how quickly that year has pasted,

But also on a personal note my confidence in myself has also grown.

Support from strangers and others I’ve met along the way has encouraged this,

I  also feel the flow of my work is coming together much better,

And the way I think about creating before doing it is always in my mind,

Finally and most importantly the emotions I want to portray are shining through the completed pieces.


My new facebook page @emilyduchschererkirkart is now documenting my journey if you’d like to have a look.


Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your week,
