Spread some joy!

Gratitude

It's the last month of 2017! The world is in turmoil and at times a bit overwhelming. For me personally 2017 was a rather tricky one, with house renovation dramas and an eye illness, but it was also a very good and eventful year and I am feeling grateful for many good things that happened along the way.

I feel thankful for continued support from my family and friends, the galleries representing me in the UK and abroad, as well as people following my processes on social media and collecting my work. I love being an artist and creating paintings a bring me a lot joy!

A Special Project!

Raising funds for good causes.

The 1st December is World AIDS day. This disease affect many people worldwide, in South Africa still more than 7 million people live with AIDS. I was born and raised in South Africa and support a number of charities who do valuable work there.

Winter Morning, the painting in this post, is a special one: all proceeds from its sale will be shared between two charities working to better the lives of children in South Africa. Starfish is focussed on helping AIDS orphans and Kungweni is an organisation close to Pretoria that supports people with mental illness and runs a separate orphanage.

The painting is in acrylic on fine linen canvas. the size is 20"x24" (50x60cm) The gallery price for this size painting is £850. If you are interested in buying it, please contact me with offers above £650. The painting will go to he highest offer received by 18 December.

Please contact me at este@estemacleod.com if you are interested. You can see the creation process of the painting here on Instagram. I will be giving away one print of Winter Morning to a social media follower, see Instagram link for info.


There's more

As mentioned earlier, this year I had a serious eye illness. It made me realise again how dependent I am on my sight and how it can be taken for granted. As the third charity that I would like to support in December, 10% of all limited print sales in my ETSY store will be donated to Sightsavers this month. See the link for more information about the work they do.

A newsletter will go out on 12 December with information on enrolling for 2018 EXPLORE COLOUR online painting and creativity courses.

Colourful greetings!

In counseling he admitted he loved me but not in love with me.I am beyond devastated. What should I do? And when do you think he will realize he's still IN love with me? I need this man to realize I'm still that girl he met 6 years ago.
