For the next few weeks I will be tinkering around a bit and making some changes. I'll have some new art to display and things will look a bit different. Stay tuned!
I received this for Valentine's Day from my partner, and today I had a little time on my hands. So, I did a little studio cleanup. Who knew I'd find so many half empty tubes of paint and forgotten paintbrushes...
Speaking of paintbrushes, I found about a dozen or so that are going to receive an overnight hot bath to remove nasty dried paint. I found lots of simple brush cleaning methods, including this one. I know, I know... I should wash my brushes more thoroughly.
Among my other finds were a half empty/half full bottle of structure gel, several colored pencils, and my missing .1 mm liner pen. Wow! So cleaning! Such find!
I think I'll draw a thing now.
My first post of the New Year! Granted, we are already ten days into it, but better late than never.
I'm inspired by many beautiful pieces, techniques, and combinations of lines,
I hope for this year to be a very creative and productive year
Convergence Part I is complete - see how land, water and sky seem to be one? That's at least what I see when I look at it - you may see something completely different. After all, that's really the wonderful thing about art. We all look at it and interpret it in our own way.
Here's another beauty from last week - untitled as of yet. I think it needs a happy, spring-like name.
Oh - and I'm sure you're wondering- preparations for what?
It's time for 29 Faces! So, all during the month of September, watch this page for a new face!
My daily trips to Design Seeds recently brought me to this rather stormy looking palette, Global Hues. I love the deep blues and greens. They remind me of the ocean, or a storm...or both?
In my mind's eye I see water, land and sky all converging, blues and greens and even grays mingling together. In fact, for the first time in a very long time, I've titled my piece before I've finished it!
I am a self-taught artist, using my creative and sometimes bizarre mind to come up with colors, shapes and scenes and transferring them from my my mind to a canvas or piece of paper. I love to experiment with different styles, colors, media and shapes in my artwork, so you might find me listing acrylics one week, watercolor the next, and then a mixed media collage after that. I create art because I love it - it makes me happy. I'm here to share that enjoyment with others.
