Story Telling

My goal in my art has always been more than creating a pretty face or flower.  I’ve wanted to tell a story.   This painting fulfilled that goal for me.   This painting is a 9 x 12 mixed media piece, and  was done using techniques learned in this week’s Life Book 2016 lesson, with […]

Meadow of wildflowers

Splatter Meadows

Out here, where I live, I don’t have to go much further than outside my own door to find beautiful wildflower meadows. So it doesn’t surprise me that….   I’ve gone wild for wildflowers! Seriously.  Once I started painting these I couldn’t stop.  I blame it all on the Facebook mail art group that I […]

Day 2 of Thirty Paintings In 30 Days

A watercolor sunflower today. Next time I’ll have to remember to be a little lighter handed during the sketching.  The toughest thing for me is knowing how much water to use.  Sure is fun experimenting though. Day 2 Thirty Paintings in 30 Days

Thirty Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

Thirty?  Thirty.  Three, Zero.  30 in thirty days. This really is a challenge, especially for someone as new to painting as I am. I got to thinking… after thirty paintings, in thirty days, I won’t be so new.  I’ll be more practiced and all because I decided to jump in with both feet and take […]

Watercolor Flowers

My first attempts at watercolor flowers, because, right this minute my garden is full of, among other things, sunflowers. I don’t think I’ll ever do them justice, but I’m willing to try. …and something more colorful… I’m pretty happy with the way they turned out and they’ve definitely inspired me to paint more.

Summer Sunshine

We’re in the middle of a heat wave, with daily temperatures in the nineties.  It’s not a sunny heat wave. It’s a rainy one.  It’s humid, so humid, and raining so hard I think we are in the middle of a monsoon.  If the sun was out, it would be drier, but the temperatures would […]

ATC/ACEO Girls

Today I’d love to show you two new little aceos/atcs  that I did for art swaps.  They’ve been sent and received by their new owners, so I’m not ruining any surprises. This first one, done with ink and colored pencils, was for an Alice in Wonderland theme.  There had to be one red heart in […]

Your Heart

When I started this, I had no idea where I was going to go with it. First there was the heart on her dress, then another and another…. No matter how fragile you think you, or your heart are, don’t let those thoughts stop you from following your heart, your dreams.  Be brave!  Be daring! […]

A Tag and A Pear

For the longest time, my acrylics have been sitting and collecting dust… well all except my white, I use my white ALOT. I did a little ATC sized practice pear, and a tag for an exchange I’m taking part in Something tells me that white is no longer going to be the only acrylic paint […]
