What’s done in love is well done

“Vincent writes to Theo: It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done!”

So true. Happy with how this piece turned out. Just wanted to play. Decided to spray some dylusions ink which I have neglected for a while. Then sprinkled with water and amused myself with the ink blotches created when ink meets water. Added some modeling paste with a stencil and can’t resist adding a face. Viola. Glad i did not overwork this. This is good. Stop.🤣

FYI. This was how it started. I debated if I should stop here or keep going. Glad I kept going. But now it’s time to stop.


Happy birthday son

A simple mixed media birthday card for my little boy who, in a blink of an eye, became a strapping young man. I am so proud of him and will miss him so much when he goes off to college later this year.. trying not to think of it or I will start crying. Happy birthday my son.

Gratitude is peace

Doodling away in my altered book on a rainy Sunday pm. Simple pleasures in life. Love how thick and yummy my book is becoming. Filled with my doodles, play, inner thoughts and dreams.

She was beautiful…

She was beautiful, but not like

those girls in the magazines.

She was beautiful, for the way

she thought. She was beautiful,

for the sparkle in her eyes when

she talked about something she loved.

She was beautiful, for her ability

to make other people smile, even if

she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful

for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul.

Trying to keep the colors soft. Had to exercise some restraint 😂

Random free play

I have recently experimented with alcohol ink and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Can’t seem to get enough of it. I love the fluid and unpredictable nature of the interaction between alcohol ink and rubbing alcohol. Decided to tape a process video of how I played with alcohol ink on tile. Hope you enjoy it! (P.S. man, it takes a lot to make a video! I am so thankful for all the Youtube artists out there)


Here are some other pieces I did…

My stack of painted tiles is growing taller by the day:)

There is no such thing as too much hair

Third girl in my series of big hair girl. Ok, this is BIG. But I love it!!! Wasn’t sure how I could paint all those curls in her hair. Just used a mix of watercolor pencils to draw the curls and paint to layer. I think she turned out ok.
