Shortlisted for the BLUETHUMB Art Competition!

Hi guys,

Some very exciting news to be announced… my beautiful piece “A Drop of Enchantment” has been short listed for the Annual BLUETHUMB Australian Art Competition. The top 100 can be found here.

Here’s hoping for some great success in this exciting competition. Finalists will be selected on the 4th November.

Some exciting new aviator paintings are currently in the evolutionary phase on easels in the art studio. My paintings are evolving a little slower than they have previously but with a little more delight and magic. Time is a precious thing and so is health and so I am trying to learn to devote a little time to all aspects of my life where my attention is needed. But despite this I am still very excited to be bringing you more and more paintings and composited photographs that bring warmth and delight to your soul and a smile to your face.

Behind the scenes I am also currently designing a new range of labels for a local business and their product range. This is a very exciting project and I can’t wait to lift the veil on this incredible collaboration.

Talk soon,

x Tara Spicer.

What’s going on?

Hello and welcome again into my studio. Well the renovations have begun to slow here at my studio and I am slowly re-discovering my paint pots and brushes! I even found one of my art students hiding behind an easel the other day!!! In the meantime, much has happened both on and off the canvas and I thought I might do a little ‘show and tell’.

I recently whipped up and delivered this new commissioned work to its’ very happy new owners… a bathtub nude for a bathroom entrance… just perfect:

“Lucky Ducky”

My artistic vision…

Hi all, and thankyou for following my site, my career and my epic journey on this artistic life path. Wow, what a mouthfull of an intro 🙂 . But it is for a cause. It is the new year and as I was teaching one of my art students last night when she inquired as to whether I had made any New Year’s resolutions for 2013… you know, I had not even taken a single second to think about it! Not even on the first day of the year between early morning yoga and the glistening sun later that day at Noosa Beach. This came as little bit of a shock to me as I am the sort of person who would normally make a very conscious and considered effort to take the time and space to ‘time out’ and sit down… to surround myself with crystals and candles… to do a quiet and focused meditation and basically sort my soul out while transcendent hippy music soothes my senses softly in the background!

But not this year! This year just slipped in quietly and unnoticed between my toast and morning cuppa!

So I made the concerted decision to “better late than never” sort myself out last night and to make sure that I was still ‘in the flow’ for 2013. I rummaged through some of my older stuff to try and re-discover my intent for my artistic career and what I HAVE to share with YOU… and to my absolute unbounded artistic joy… this is what I found, written in the archives of long ago, straight from my heart:

“I believe that painted images have the power to create s shift within a person, not unlike a song or a well read story, that changes the person from that moment on. It is in this belief that I create the works that I do, in the hope that I can bring warmth, magic and hope to those who love my work… That on some level, the viewer is moved and their faith in this world and their own light is restored and inspired.” Tara Spicer

WOW. I could not have said it any better!

So I welcome each of you warmly with heart felt genuine intention that it some gentle or even bold manner… through my artworks and though my intentions throughout 2013, that you are ‘moved’ and that you are ‘inspired’ by what you find here.

Love and Light,

Tara Spicer – Artist.
