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 - Wk 4 words

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 […]

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!

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 […]

Day Twelve of Thirty and a Seventh Face

I kept it simple today, with this postcard sized mixed media, watercolor, acrylic and ink portrait. Wonder by Tori Beveridge I stamped over the first coat, then used a brayer to cover the whole thing with white acrylic, then I went back in and repainted.  The word, wonder, was then added and I detailed with […]

Day 10 – Thirty Paintings in 30 Days and Face 5

So far, so good!  I’m ten for ten! I am, however, a little behind in my 29 Faces, so today’s painting, I knew had to be a face. I used another advertising magnet as my canvas.  As before, I applied a layer of gesso first and then got out my acrylics and painted this cute […]

Day Nine – Thirty Paintings in 30 Days

Another mixed media piece.  It’s 9 x 12, and started with lots of collage, which I then painted over using watercolor, acrylic, FC Gel Sticks and ink. Bubble Dreamer Photo of Bubble Dreamer by Tori Beveridge Thirty Paintings in 30 Days – Day 9

Imagine Possibility Mixed Media using watercolor, watercolor pencils, acrylic and ink on 4×6 140 lb cold press watercolor paper. (the photograph doesn’t do it justice.. it’s so much prettier with so many more layers of color and shading than you can see here) Thirty Paintings in 30 Days – Day 6

Day 5 of 30 in 30 and My Third Face

For this painting I decided to try simply putting some watercolors on to the paper and see what I saw in the dried paint, similar to the journal pages I showed you here:  What The Paint Splatters Revealed To start, I wet the paper and added blue and a peachy red that I mixed.  I […]

A New Crudoodle Free Digital Stamp and Day Three

I have two girls for you today. The first is a my Day Three painting for Thirty Paintings in 30 Days, and my second for 29 Faces in September 2014. I did this with acrylics and Pitt pens for the black details. I don’t know who she is or where she came from but I […]
