She Whispers of Fall by Tori Beveridge CU

Fall Is Coming

Fall Is Coming Autumn is nearly here. My favorite season. Everything changes. A fresh breeze blows. Energy returns. Shadows lengthen. Patterns change. But, right now, it’s 90 degrees. It’s still summer. I have tomatoes on the vine, eggs to collect, and peach and apple pies to bake. I have plans to flesh out and implement […]

Words Revisited

This was originally posted on January 5th 2016.  I’m reposting it in response to Effy Wild’s Artfully Wild Blog Along’s nudge for today: “Dig something really good out of your archived writings”. Because this has primarily been a blog dedicated to displaying art and not to writing words, I have very few archived “writings”.  This […]

Speed Paint Tag in Watercolor by Tori Beveridge 2017

The First Day of…

The first day of the rest of this blog. The fear of the blank page has followed me from my art table to here.   In order to break it, I speed sketched and painted a tag;  it’s sole purpose to bring me back to blogging.       Baby Steps.   Thank you to […]

From My Word Bowl -10

From My Word Bowl – 10 Last week’s Life Book 2016 lesson with Tracy Verdugo taught me a new way to find inspiration to create with.  She introduced me to “Inspiration Stacks”.  I love-love-loved the idea! What is an inspiration stack?  It’s torn sheets of ephemera, scrapbook paper,  magazine and book pages etc. which are […]

From My Word Bowl – 9

From My Word Bowl – 9 This week I drew two great phrases and the word, and, from my word bowl. The sketch I did, I didn’t really “fuss over”, except to add some watercolor to it.   I think she looks a little surprised, by what I’m not sure, but I’m happy that the […]

Day of The Dead Happy Mail

Isn’t it nice when you see something in your mail that isn’t a bill or a piece of junk mail?    I’m not talking about your email inbox.  I’m talking about your good old, snail mail mailbox. I love to receive mail, that is why I belong to a “Happy Mail” group on Face Book. […]

Be Your Own Angel

Be Your Own Angel   I was inspired to paint this angel by a Life Book 2016 lesson by Ivy Newport. It was suggested to make it a paint over of a ‘selfie’ to make it a self portrait. Obviously, I did not do a self portrait and my interpretation of the lesson is different. […]
