Does This Ever Happen To You?

Does This Ever Happen To You?   Does a painting ever take over your creative process to the extent that you can’t work on, or think about painting anything else?  I’ve been dealing with this for the last couple of weeks. Ten days ago, (ten days ago!) I posted this photo of a work in progress […]

30 in 30 Paintings 9 and 10

30 Paintings in 30 Days – Paintings 9 and 10 Painting 30 paintings in 30 days is no easy task! I have three paintings that I am working on right now that are in various stages of “unfinishedness”. Lots of layers and lots of drying time and a fair share of repainting or painting over […]

Two Girls by Tori Beveridge Featured

Two Girls

Two Girls Two Girls is the result of this week’s Life Book 2016 lesson with Jane Davenport and Tamara Laporte.  It really spoke to me because I am so comfortable with the mix or ‘jam’ as they called it of their two styles.  We were asked to use limited supplies of our choice.  I chose pencil, […]

From My Word Bowl 5 Two Aceos by Tori Beveridge

From My Word Bowl – 5

From My Word Bowl – 5 This week’s words inspired me to create two aceos.  Two aceos because of “the two”.     The words spirit and humble reminded me of the style and techniques taught in one of Life Book 2016’s lessons by Shiloh Sophia .  I wasn’t in a painterly sort of mood, so […]

From My Word Bowl – 4

From My Word Bowl – Week 4   This week, the words from my word bowl worked very well together and I was instantly inspired to paint a thoughtful, gentle face. Instead of reaching for a blank canvas or piece of paper, I instead looked through my “terrible” art pile. This is a pile of […]

Fun with Florals

Fun with Florals       I’ve been having lots of fun with Tamara Laporte’s and Wyanne Thompson’s latest lessons in Life Book 2016.     I didn’t have all of the materials that they used, so I used what I had and did my own interpretations of the lessons.     Lots of splatters, splotches and squiggly […]
