Sometimes, you simply have to let go and have fun. Slap the paint on the paper or canvas and know that whatever you do, you can’t mess it up, because there was never anything there to mess up. What ever you create is what you were supposed to create. It’s perfection lies in […]
I’m sharing this magical creature I painted yesterday with you, in hope that she brings a little of the magic she brought to me, into your day.
Hello friends! Yes, I am still here and I am still making art and I am so so happy to see that you are here too! Sending you all some love this afternoon via this sweet, sketchy, little fairy mixed media painting, which was prompted by two words I pulled out of my Word Bowl. […]
Do you doodle while you’re on the phone? I do. Face #11 was doodled while talking with my mom today. Watercolor, ink and colored pencils. Happy Valentine’s Day!
A quick watercolor that I did today for EMG Sketch Fest, for the prompt Green Eyed Lady, prompted by Elma Bree.
What a busy week! How was your’s? I’m hoping it was wonderful and that you’re all set to have a fabulous and relaxing weekend. In between all the busy stuff that life throws at us, I did some doodles and a couple of quick little postcard size paintings. The doodles were done on two separate […]
This face only emerged after I gessoed over the one I had started which wasn’t working the way I had thought it would. I’m so glad I covered it up and let this girl come out. Lessons learned…gesso is my friend and to be flexible because every painting has a soul waiting to get out, […]

Today’s face is called “Everyone is Beautiful”. As you can see, I wrote those words in her hair. When I started to sketch her, I decided to grab my camera and photograph some of my steps. I have some friends who are beginning their face painting and sketching journey, encouraged by 29 Faces. […]
Face #2 is finished. Mixed media including water color, ink, colored pencil, graphite and acrylic. I know I shouldn’t take photos at night, but I wanted to share her with you today. The true colors are so much nicer (especially the background and the shadow under the nose) and the hair color is much richer. […]
Hello my friends. Happy February! I’m sketching and painting faces all month. What joy! I’ll be sharing all 29 of the faces a create for this year’s February 29 Faces art challenge. I love, love, love this challenge. I’m so excited to share my first face. I painted her after doing one of Life Book […]
