“Fear not” is a landscape self portrait. It is a journey into self and a search to find the positivity within. I have spent years training myself to think positively, when at times my default thought processes were negative. I call this a Landscape Self Portrait as it depicts the landscape inside of me.
Using 22 carrot gold leaf with real diamonds and real diamond dust in this art has been great fun and makes it shine. It gives it a sparkle that I believe is in everyone. To find this ability to shine, we just have to look for our calling and what we love to give or do unconditionally. These are the riches of paradise rather than the worldly riches.
I am very much a work in progress and I speak from my own mistakes which keep me humble. At this time of change I would encourage you to try something new.
You can create you very own Landscape Self Portrait.
I will be giving talks about my art, how to paint via the zoom app in meetings of up to 25 people. If you want to be invited email me via the contact page on the website. https://www.sarasherwood.co.uk/contact/
My Landscape Self Portrait Testimonial:
I now listen to my God inside me and he talks to me when I paint. I then look up scripture to see what he is saying to me. A title just pops in my head and then my curiosity overcomes me and I seek the answer. Fear not… so I google it and this is the page that helped me
It is a relationship, that is both exciting, fun and rewarding and when I can get out of my own way, He is close to me. Believe. He loves me when I mess up and I love Him all the more for that.
It is a relationship everyone can have, I had a 15 year search from exploring yoga and new age spirituality and angels and finally by the Grace of God ended up in Greek Christian orthodox churches where I felt an energy and peace I had never felt before. The painting “Fairytale Journey” Depicts this and ended up being reworked into “Inner Sparkle”

Cityscape London “Love Guides Us” is about love, it is about doing the right thing in life, even if you don’t want to. I overcame temptation with the prayer of others from a monastery as I was not able to do this in my own power.
I want this painting of cityscape London to uplift and shine out grace and beauty. It is a celebration of all that is good. Sunshine, happiness and great joy. The colours signify how my heart feels on a good day.

I am managing my mind to see the positive at this moment in time. I am noticing all that I have and am grateful for the many art orders and creative ideas that are flowing at the moment. I would encourage you to paint or draw or make something like a cake or nourishing meal. Any form of creativity leads us to be calm. I find the art of being lost in a moment or totally absorbed by a task mentally relaxing and it is from this place that more ideas come to me. Sometimes about business and marketing and other times about pure creativity. I am blessed to live this way and have the ideal job for me that involves both silence, stillness and interacting at events or online.
London artist meets Russian Nikolsky Ensemble and their music has inspired me to share “the light inside me” abstract and to talk about how I paint. Music opens my heart and I use it to share the best of me in my art, in both my paintings of London and contemporary abstracts. I work in oil on canvas. Sacred music adds another dimension to my art. I think the more we share with each other on a deeper level the more we can hope for a better more peaceful world. Respect for each others faiths and differences is paramount. If we do our best to love our neighbour as ourselves, then we can hope for Paradise here on earth. As a London artist I enjoy travel, “Paradise on Earth” landscape painting was inspired by a trip to Croatia and the church on the hill was inspired by the church of St Euphemia, Rovinj.
London cityscape in reds was inspired by warmth and sunlight. I want my art to give joy and to inspire other artists. Painting is self expression and that is free will and choice. Painting with happy thoughts and feelings. Silent ministry is powerful. My art is my voice. This is “Gunmetal Sky” based on Ephesians 6 armour of God. It is about spiritual protection painted to music of that passage to capture that essence. I hope this art emits peace in every home of any faith or nationality. I want to inspire artists of all faiths to believe, pray and share joy as they paint. If we have an open heart of joy, then it is therefore captured in the work.
We can create world peace in precious moments by bringing ripples of pleasure to anyone who sees or buys beautiful art. I know art can be thought provoking and that is dramatic but my focus is to spread joy through art as a wonderous gift and legacy. I encourage others to do the same. I suggest all artists to stand side by side in peace, unity and harmony to be an example the world. Shine brightly….
This painting is part of my hand painted print collection, some examples will be on show #spitalfieldsse1 art market.

“Unite and Connect” painting of London was inspired by the “True Hearts” concept by Louca Kousoulou. #knifecrime solution
His visionary goal is to educate and support the youth of today to bring about a peaceful and positive future for this world. His idea is to introduce academies instead of unemployment benefit, to work with ex-gang members and ex-veteran homeless to train and motivate others to build a peaceful society for our future.
With an open heart our youth can unite and connect with each other and have a common goal of building a better future. This is a utopian strategy but every great idea starts with a dream.
We believe that this concept can work across religions and break down barriers to create a society built on love not fear. With a strategy for funding via TV and sponsorship, Kousoulou is convinced it is possible to make this a reality.
The painting shows London in a positive light. Unity in faith is a key element with an open heart and acceptance of others and their beliefs. I believe we should focus on the commonalities that draws society together, rather than the negatives that the media so often portray. Yes bad things happen, but the more we focus on the positive the more that can expand.
I hope my art emanates peace and joy from my heart and I wish that for every soul in this world.

London cityscape artist explains “Love is the real power”
The cityscape “LOVE is the real power” topical for Valentines day, at Towie star Georgia Kousoulou’s father’s mansion. Art lover Louca Kousoulou fell in love with the painting the minute he saw it.
The colours of the art are reflected in the chandelier and the warm colours illuminate the room. It extends the magic of the painting into the home decor. I spent a few days with Louca, home styling and decluttering the mansion to bring it to its full potential. He now has art in a number of rooms and says:
“Sara’s Art has brought love and warmth to the house, which has generated a sense of wellbeing and positivity. This art has definitely created a vibe of love flowing through the air”.

What do you love most about Spitalfields Arts Market and why did you choose to sell your art here?
I love the diversity of people that sell and visit Spitalfields Arts and General Market, it is a hive of creativity and talent fused with hard working and positive individuals that have build their own brands and products. It is refreshing to see unique arts that are represented directly by the artist. The Arts market gives me the perfect forum to get direct feedback from clients and the general public. I see reactions first hand and note which art sells best. I can then create new work with a specific customer base in mind. I have found many of the other artists at Spitalfields both supportive and positive. We share ideas for art products and suppliers, which have enriched all of our lives.
The area is perfect to exhibit my paintings of London and get I inspiration from the local vibe. To see more about Spitalfields Art Market https://www.spitalfields.co.uk/spitalfields-arts-market/
