This week’s Life Book 2016 lesson with Jane Davenport was wonderful. I adored it. (adore.. I love that word!) I painted along while I watched and listened, at times getting a little ahead of the lesson. I enjoyed the unpredictability, lightness and freedom of painting solely with watercolor, after all the mixed media I’ve been doing. […]
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 […]
A few weeks ago, I shared this sneak peek of a painting I did for the Enchanted Visions theme, The Gateway, with my Facebook followers. I couldn’t share the whole painting because Enchanted Visions hadn’t published it yet on their site. I’m happy to say that they have published it and now I can share with […]
Sometimes, you simply have to let go and have fun. Slap the paint on the paper or canvas and know that whatever you do, you can’t mess it up, because there was never anything there to mess up. What ever you create is what you were supposed to create. It’s perfection lies in […]
I’m sharing this magical creature I painted yesterday with you, in hope that she brings a little of the magic she brought to me, into your day.
Hello friends! Yes, I am still here and I am still making art and I am so so happy to see that you are here too! Sending you all some love this afternoon via this sweet, sketchy, little fairy mixed media painting, which was prompted by two words I pulled out of my Word Bowl. […]
Do you doodle while you’re on the phone? I do. Face #11 was doodled while talking with my mom today. Watercolor, ink and colored pencils. Happy Valentine’s Day!
A quick watercolor that I did today for EMG Sketch Fest, for the prompt Green Eyed Lady, prompted by Elma Bree.
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 […]
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, […]
I haven’t done a drippy watercolor face in a long time, so decided to play today.
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. […]
