Being a multi tasker, I am guilty of not being present in the moment. Always trying to squeeze one more thing in. Trying to build in more savor the moment. She is a good reminder. Sometimes I just need to close my eyes and breath it all in… savor the moment.
Sometimes i find it hard to do art when I am traveling. Tend to take a lot of photographs instead. Advantage of traveling with 2 teenagers is that they like to sleep in. Which gives me the quiet time in the am to do some art. I was able to finish up a piece I started before we came to Iceland. Added more contrast and a quote to it. Viola. Done.Watercolor and ink for quote.
Still I rise …. Maya Angelou. Started out as watercolor, then used color pencils to add layers to her hair. Then I could not decide what to do with the background, end up experimenting with watercolor, ink, acrylic, modeling paste,… ie the kitchen sink🤣 that’s why I love mixed media.. to cover up mistakes😉
Sketching on the 6 hour train home.:.. sigh, why can’t we have the European style fast trains?!!
Mixed media play in my scrappy journal. Glue in my fingers, paint on my hands and clothes, scraps of paper and fabric everywhere..The best way to start the weekend. Happy Saturday 💃💃💃
Playing in my art journal tonight. Reminding myself that I am enough. Stay true to who I am. Mixed media with collage, acrylic paint, fabric, doodle and stenciling.
Is it Sunday night already? Where did the weekend go?! Sunday night blues…, I just love this puppy face… enjoy what’s left of the weekend!
Love dogs with lots of rolls… this was a lot of fun to paint as well. I am so glad I pushed past my fear and venture into painting animals💃💃💃
On this mid week holiday, I am reminded of practicing the pause. Too often we are chasing and running and hurrying. Today is a good day to breath, pause and just be. Happy 4th!
From painting human faces to dogs.. and now kitty cats… It’s good to push myself beyond my comfort zone. I love her eyes…seem to say “hugs please” to me. What about you?
