Radiance is a painting I did some time ago, but totaly forgot I had created it until the other day, when I was looking for some paintings to diplay in Manchester at Healthy Spirit.
Well here it is. The size is 11.5" x 16.5" and is on display with 10 other paintings.
It has been a while since I displayed any paintings and with the reception I got, all the lovely comments and praises, it feels great to be back! Thank you everyone who complimented my artwork. Big hugs and kisses for you all, I love you to bits and thanks for keeping me smiling.
Hope you like it.
A few months ago, I had an idea to paint in a totally different way. I often do this, because I love to experiment with different styles and also this helps me to further my painting skills.
With this in mind, I decided to paint with a whimsical theme. Whimsical by the way, means, ‘playfully quaint or fanciful, especially in an appealing and amusing way’, I little like me. So I picked up the paint brush and started.
I’ve completed four paintings so far and now they are on display at Healthy Spirit, in Manchester. I took some pictures of my paintings hanging in the shop and my husband downloaded them on the computer from the camera. But then he deleted them by mistake, oh dear. But I forgave him, after all he is my administration officer for this project, wink, wink.
It’s a good job I have the originals for you to see. So here they are. My Whimsical Collection.
I am making room for new paintings as my storage room is now becoming very full. Since we are approaching the festive holidays and a New Year, I am making you a great offer you cannot miss.
Make a selection then you decide what you want to pay for the painting. Send me an email of your offer to firstname.lastname@example.org
If I think it’s an reasonable offer, I will send you an OK email back with the Postage and Packaging cost which we have to calculate depending upon where the painting is going to be shipped. All paintings will be sent via ParcelForce. Send me a cheque payable to SAMIRA BUTT and once it's cleared, the painting will be sent to you.
This only applies to original painting and not prints.
A great offer not to be missed..............

Oh what a wonderful day I am having. I just got back from the Old Market Gallery where I spent a few hours amongst talented, warm and loving people all writing positive messages to brighten up our town. Due to a lot of negative publicity aimed at our town, a group of people decided to get together to prove that all is not as bad as people think over here, yes crimes have been committed by a group of corrupt individuals, and hopefully, they will get their comeuppance, but everyone especially the Muslim community are being stereotyped and that is not fair and widens the divide, injuring human relationships. The least the media can do is focus on more positive aspects for once.
Enough said, everyone was busy writing their own messages to brighten up the local area with positive energy ready for the Rotherham Show tomorrow. Myself and my daughter-in-law thought it was a good idea to show our support and big up our town and send love out to the community. We had a stupendous time creating art and making new friends. I just thought to myself, how fantastic it would be if I could do this for a living.... no harm in dreaming.....
Here are a few photos of the occasion and my finished work of art. Oh by the way I will be going to an art group for the first time today too, really looking forward to it. Perfect day I think so far. I hope your day has been fulfilling too. From my heart to yours.
Love and Peace
I am pleased to announce that three of my paintings are up in the Old Market Gallery, in Rotherham.
If you can, come down and take a look at the talent of our local artists. There is something for everyone from photography to sculptures and paintings. Here are a few photos from the private viewings. The gallery is open to the public from today, see poster below.
Love and Peace
I am a self taught artist who loves and appreciates art and photography. Both capture moments of life with great meaning and beauty.
