My new website

Chai has made a new website for me!

A new website of my abstract paintings for sale is now live

Chai has made a new website for Dawn’s contemporary abstract art with a simple shopping cart wich includes PayPal payments. It has been a hard job to find a shopping cart that is free to take payments, so it was a God send to find one on the platform. The main reason why there is no shopping cart on this website is because this platform doesn’t allow for a shopping cart.

So Chai had to search for a platform that won’t cost an arm and a leg to incorporate a shopping cart. It has been a long search and finally found a very simple one which a lot of people are using. Most good ones cost a monthly fee for a package which includes web hosting and a payment facility which also cost money.

Today’s Painting

My Abstract expressionist painting today

the painting “Storm” has an abstract expressionist feel to it

Started this morning with colors that I seem to have used before but  haven’t had much success and  I thought I was going down the same track,  but to my surprise,  outside in perfect light for the camera  (cloudy )  I’ve decided I like them, this time they’re working for me.

I shall add a touch more magenta which worked well but  was covered by the layer of blue. It has a feel of a storm or something in nature to me.

New painting

I am in such a great place at the moment. My work has improved and finally producing a style I’ve desired . I believe it’s because I’m giving. As Paul McCartney said,  and in the end,  the love you take  is equal to the love you make, and of course before Paul  there is the greatest teacher of all,  our Lord. Proceeds from my art are helping a group of  the chakma people  become self sufficient by building their own weaving business  information about this on

Jnr Manu, portrait

I completed Jnr Manu  a young Tongan friends portrait today, he told me he was (fatter) than I portrayed him so I  had a bit of work to do,  luckily enough he’s happy now.  Sometimes wish I could draw a graph to get the proportions instead of calculating by sight but I’m hopeless at drafting with a ruler.
