I found two old
photo albums in the thrift store.
They have the best paper ever in them to paint on!
The small flowers hold my own torn "painted papers"
I used acrylic, torn catalog papers and inks on this one.
I let my self follow the paint around on this one.
I wrote some words in brown and white with a fountain pen.
More play for the background.
I am in love with turquoise and manganese blue
"seeing perfection in the imperfect nature of the world"
It is so relaxing and peaceful while painting...
having the world go away,
and just play.
I wish this for all of you...

I have been playing, studying, experimenting
I have been so frustrated, not being able to work on my large canvases because of so many distractions.
So I started painting on every possible substrate in sight, within my studio and YES,
out of my studio.
Filling up my little art journals like crazy, still frustration.
I told a friend I know that I am evolving and changing with my art, little steps at a time...
HOW 'BOUT THAT...
in my little ol' life as well.
It all goes hand in hand.
So now, this piece, I was exploring and mixing colors that I love.
I really wish I would have left it longer to "percolate", but I
I even thought I might just throw in the towel to some degree.
My days have been filled with family and friends love, how can I be frustrated I ask.
My creative discoveries are always worth the wait, how could I doubt this.
I started painting
Oh, my love of faces.
I tried changing how I proceed normally and tried to improve on anything concerning the face.
I learned more, and shall continue on this journey.
I outlined her with a white dip fountain pen...
I am so in love with this fountain pen lately,
I've been writing all over every chunk of paper I have.
There is a LOT
that went into this little painting.
I share all of this as I know other artists run up
against these happenings.
I hope this helps or affirms your feelings, it has mine as well.
I've done a few more of these little "Inks",
one didn't turn out.
This is absolute play time...
learn so much when letting go!
Here are words for
ALL OF US!

most of the day...
I popped into my art journal
and painted the colors I am craving!
These 2 pieces
are NOT THE COLOR of
It is raining and foggy and we are going to have dayssss
of this, and even though we need it and it's wonderful...I start to get blue.
So why not paint the blues away!
Seems as though I've been here before
during winter time, ha!
Stay STRESS FREE friends as much as possible

I took a class
the other day.
I have admired her work tremendously
She offered 1 free class if we took this one, certain one.
could I resist?
She is great teacher...
she teaches loose and I LOVE
She was teaching with india ink...and I started out that way...
but then I thought...
whoa..i love them and their vibrant colors!
I learned a LOT more than just what Christina
Now that's an
using my words
even on these.
Nor can anyone else, ha!
I've been so lucky to have
the last few days.
This helps my mood
and my paintings.
As one little Christmas Angel!
I hope this finds you
UN-stressed, happy, and just
hangin' out before Christmas.
