Get up and try - Original Nixie 10x8" mixed media painting

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


«Get Up and Try» is a 10x8" (±25x20cm) original mixed media painting. This Nixie (the character) was created on a birch wood panel.

This Nixie counts many many wounds on her heart. She knows she needs to let it mend by itself and to be gentle so the process can happen.
She knows it could be worse but it does not make it easier, though. Nor does it lessen the pain.
However, she does not see "no" as a failure, but as an opportunity to grow and do better next time.
Every day, she repeats this mantra to herself: "today, I just get up and try".


Items ship from the US, so this is why it takes a little longer to come your way. I always ask for tracking.
Your painting will be wrapped with love and care to ensure a good travel from my home to yours.

(Be aware that color may vary slightly from what you see on your monitor.)

I have been a fan of Nolwenn's work for a while. I am happy to now have one of her originals. I loved this beautiful Nixie with pink hair. The painting has gorgeous texture, and I like how all Nolwenn's pieces have soul :) This gorgeous Nixie's story is written on the back of the painting - what a fun surprise.

I loved the Soul Wispers piece that Nolwenn created for me, it turned out lovely. I will enjoy seeing my 2018 word through her art. The workmanship is superb. Communication was great, and Nolween made sure to check in several times while she was working on this piece for me. The art arrived perfectly protected in cute packaging.
