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 […]

Face #5 – Straight Inside of My Soul

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, […]

Face #3 – Step by Step Walk Through

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

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.

How Life Book Influences My Art

OR.. Why I’m Behind In Life Book I’ve been playing catch up with Life Book 2015 watching some of the lessons for the first time.  What I find interesting is what happens when I do the lessons, which explains why I am (or think I am) so far behind. I’ve actually watched most of the […]

New Digital Art – “At One”

Over on my FB page, I’ve been sharing some of my digital art from this past year and it seems right to share here as well. This is a digital work titled, “At One”.     It is a digital mixed media piece, done in Poser 7, PSP and PS. and a closer look, at […]

It’s Windy Out There

I thought I’d let you know that, yes, I am still painting during all these wonderful artist interviews. I hope you are enjoying the features, I know I am.  I painted this pretty girl last night.  I think her hair was inspired by the howling winds outside my window.  They are still howling this morning! […]

Someone Please Tell Me How….

Please click to see a larger version of this loose 9×12 inch journal page worked in acrylics, colored pencil and ink. There was a serious disconnect between what I thought […]

Yesterday’s Painting

This is yesterday’s painting.  I had wanted to post it last night but the light was too bad to take a picture.  This morning’s light was of course better, but the colors are not true, (despite all my editing attenpts) as the original has more pinkish red through out. Thirty Paintings in 30 Days
