Keep Moving Forward

Sometimes, like Alice does in Wonderland, ‘I give myself very good advice but I very seldom follow it.” So…. let’s just say for the past weeks, I’ve been telling myself I should be blogging, but I haven’t been listening to myself. After a very intensive stretch of working for Sympatico Studio (which I really did […]

New Art – The Beekeeper

Back in February, I did a sketch for 29 Faces.  Last week, when I had little bits of time, I finally painted it.  It’s called The Beekeeper. It’s worked in watercolor, acrylic, collage, and ink on 9 X 12 140 lb cold press water color paper.  The actual painting is much softer, more pastel, and […]

29 Faces – Face 2

For my second face, I finally did the first week’s lesson of Life Book 2015, Beacon of Light. Of course it took on a life of it’s own and although influenced by Tam’s beautiful art, looks so different from the painting in the lesson.  I’ll probably end up doing another or others. Believe in Yourself […]

29 Faces – Face 1 Sherry Malone

When I realized that the 29 Faces Challenge February 2015 was already underway, I had to stop and evaluate where time had gone and what the heck I’d been doing that made me go through the whole month of January without getting paint on my hands every day.  (I have done art, but it’s been […]

Happy New Year Everyone! Angelic Wonder by Tori Beveridge I created this angel to promote MDD Olivia for V4.2 by Maddelerium available at Renderosity I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.

The Mage – New Digital Art

Finally, I have a finished piece of work this week.  I started quite a few different pieces and have been working on all of them.. letting some dry… letting some sit, while I think of what to do next, etc. etc. This digital piece, I’ve been working on for the past three days, whenever I […]

Can You, Journal Page Spread

Earlier this week, someone in a Facebook group I’m a member of, shared an art journal exercise/prompt, to flip through magazines and cut out words that spoke to you.  Then you were to use the words in your journal.  Her journal pages were inspiring.  They were filled with words that were characteristics of the person […]

Shabby Wren Collage

It’s not very often that I do collage.  Wait.  That’s not exactly the truth.   Let me clarify. It’s not very often that I do collage and don’t do any painting or sketching or doodling along with it. When I got the opportunity to take part in a “Shabby Chic” ATC Swap, I jumped in […]

Lives Entwined – Mixed Media

We all have those people that our lives are forever entwined with.  You always connect with them.  It doesn’t matter how much time has passed since you last spoke or last saw each other.  They make you feel like everything will be right with the world.     They make you smile. They might be […]

A Loose Journal Page

This is a loose art journal page, because I wanted to do something a little larger than my journal allows.  I’ve been doing quite a few small pieces lately and I wanted to stretch.  I reached for a 9 x12 piece of mixed media paper. I didn’t know what I was going to do, except […]

Creating With Crudoodles – Carling The Little Witch

I had so much fun working with my free Crudoodle Digital Stamp, Little BooDoo last Saturday, that I thought I’d do it again today.  This week I used my Carling The Little Witch. I did another mixed media piece, using Faber Castell gel sticks, colored pencils, gel medium, collaged papers, washi tape and Pitt artist […]

Art Journaling – Observations

Hi my friends. It has felt so strange not to be posting every day.  I did force myself to take a short break from the blog.  I felt I needed it after the intensity of the thirty paintings and postings in September. I’ve been focusing more on my art journal over the past few days […]
