Temporary Art Studio 2018


John and I just returned from a trip to Mexico where we enjoyed 
the ocean, sand, and the sun for eleven days.
I called the beach my temporary art studio.
From there I drew in my journal everyday while I savored the surroundings.
Here are the pieces I created during that time.

If you ever wanted to see someone out of their comfort zone, watch this video.

so glad I did!

Altered Journals


I have been occupied with multiple projects.
One of them being, taking old books and altering them to become art journals.
This entails many steps and if you are interested let me know and I will gladly share the process.
One of them is 5.5" x 9" - perfect size for "on the go".
Yesterday when I was totally all done I was excited to begin working in it.  So I devoted most of the afternoon to do just that.
Let me show you:
Here is the front cover of the book
Then pages inside the book.
  

Another journal I made is 8.5" x 11"
I am devoting this journal to only dry mediums.
Going to have lots of time to practice and learn.
Mediums used for the piece below was were pastels-PanPastels-mechnical pencil

Titled, "Intrinsic Nature of Autumn"

Autumn symbolizes a period of change.
Balance, preparation, and reflection.
During Autumn day light and night time hours are equals lengths.  Which spiritually indicates the balance between light and dark.
It's a time of surrender, of letting go.
Getting out of the way and let spirit be in charge of our lives.

Tea Bag Art Tuesday 8-21-18

I have been making tea bag art for almost 2 yrs. now.
It was recently that I decided to start filming my process. All of this filming stuff is new to me and a little intimidating. Yet... I know improvement comes with consistently trying.  
Thus, weekly Tea Bag Art Tuesday was born. Your continued support means the world to me!
Thank You!

Thank You Janet Skates

This past Friday I won 5 on-line art classes by Janet Skates.  Lucky Me!!!
I have spent many hours watching her videos.  Her style and my style are totally different yet her candid and carefree approach to creating art caught my attention and inspired me.
I created this lady - she's on a 12" x 12" canvas, acrylic paint for background, charcoal and white gesso for her.  She is for sale IF you are interested.
