Painting From Another Inspiration Stack

Painting From Another Inspiration Stack I enjoyed painting from the inspiration stack, which I shared with you last week, so much, that I decided to do it again.     I loved the words in the text piece of paper:  “Waiting in the wings.  Awash in feather she could easily be princess turned into swan”. […]

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 […]

Definition of eerie:  1.  inspiring inexplicable fear, dread or uneasiness;  strange or frightening                               […]

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. […]

30 in 30 – Painting 11

30 in 30 – Painting 11   A simple and relaxing little painting of my favorite kind of northern, rocky shoreline.  I much prefer this type of view to tropical shorelines.  Unless it’s winter, then I’ll take the tropical beach.       Thanks for having a peek today.  Until next time, have a beautiful […]

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 […]

Word Bowl Words - 6

From My Word Bowl – 6

Working with mixed media can sometimes make me feel very uncomfortable. I don’t always like the messiness and the chaos that results. I like other artists’ work, just not my own. It’s way out of my comfort zone.  Occasionally I force myself to do it and accept the result. That happened with this week’s art […]

1 Render Makes 3 Pieces of Art

1 Render Makes 3 Pieces of Art Do you ever re-use your art to create more art?  I do.  I do it both with digital art and with paint and paper. Today I’d like to share with you 3 pieces of art that I made with the same 3D Poser render (my morph of V4). […]

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 […]
