Dare to Blossom Life Coaching with Mary Lunnen

Well, the seasons are turning and I am feeling inspired to get out my wax painting equipment, set up my table again, and start some new creations.

Reviewing the mounted and framed paintings on my website, they are like old friends, it is almost hard to say goodbye to them.

However, in order to refresh (and to free up storage space) I am holding a sale this weekend. They make an unusual present if you have birthdays coming up or you are looking ahead.....

The mounted ones are easy to post, the framed ones take special packing but I have sent them successfully - just contact me to arrange that.

The sale offer is 25% off any of the original paintings. If you see one you would like to buy, write to me via the Contact page and I will invoice you direct (don't use the PayPal links or you will be paying full price).

Art has been a big part of my life from an early age. I could, and maybe later I will - share many stories of my childhood creative activities inspired by my extremely artistic family. Over recent years photography has been an absorbing pastime and many of the images have found their way on to my Facebook pages and into my Dare to Blossom newsletters.The Tree ready to write

Encaustic (wax) art was a part of my crafts business in the 1980s and 1990s, and recently I have returned to this medium, as well as using paints, pastels and pens.

During 2015 I set up Dare to Blossom Art as a container in which to present some of this work. Original paintings are for sale, and also greetings cards showing prints of these, (such as in the photo to the right) and of flower and scenery photographs. At the moment details of the greetings cards are to be found in small thumbnails below, and on the business Facebook page Dare to Blossom Art. 

Although I have chosen a name for each piece, every person who views them sees different things, like pictures in the flickering flames of a wood fire. What do you see? The abstract paintings are often used as a focus for meditation or creative writing.

Prints of some of my work are available on Redbubble, as well as cards, journals, bags and other products.
