PRACTICE IN JANUARY...

 FW INKS
rule!
But then,
so do deli paper prints,
 that 
someone saves every ounce
to paint on!
smile

"she planted her own crops one year"
When framed 
you might notice her little house up there,
in the right hand corner?






 
absolutely 
LOVE 
how acrylic paint
goes down on really old papers.
I do!
I see 2 barns or out buildings 
emerging on the left.
It's going to be a 
'bear' 
when I get ready to frame it.





 Yup...
left over paints from this mornings
practice.




Painting
over
a
ripped up hand knitted something 
I did long ago...
Where will this take me...
who knows, 
I love guessing and 
EXPERIMENTING!

SMILE BIG

IT'S ALREADY A JANUARY...

 I finished 3 paintings today!




 And the words...
Easily in this quiet I come to stay...
smiling




 Not every canvas calls
for writing on the sides...
THIS ONE DID!

Materials:
Acrylic paints
Painted deli paper
Fabulous Posca pen for the writing
8"x8"x2" canvas
Old torn music sheets
Soft gel matte medium sealed
(lots of coats to give it a waxy look)

Ready to hang

HAPPY NEW YEAR ~ 2019 with some completed art work in hand...

With ink and fountain pen,
the writings read:
'come bend the day with me'
and
'underneath the layer that has become the surface on which we live our lives' 

It feels
so
GOOD 
to have finished
these 
two 
pieces!




With fountain pen and ink:
"when the soul takes flight with the music"

 I almost always
have pieces
of work
drying
or waiting
to be
done.



"when the soul takes flight with the music"
(not my quote)

I have been working for years now to get to this point
on these works, where my intentions have been.
Over and over, but never quite right.
Last month, I knew I was 'getting there'.
Little did I know i'd complete them on
JANUARY 1, 2019

SMILING

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY FRIENDS

(if anyone would like to know what techniques or exactly what the materials are, ever, simply ask. I adore sharing all information!)

SECOND SHOWING...so close to being finished...

 They are...




 coming along
smiling




I freaked
as I
was leaving my
studio room
this morning...
I looked back at this painting
and thought there was
an accidental blog of
dripping paint...
WHEW
just a little ladybug
strolling along!

IT'S DECEMBER IN 2018...

 A new girl
and then how
'bout
that flower, dead center
not cool.
So I added some little flowers and leaves
(not shown here) 
in order to off set 
the 
FLOWER! smiling




 She reads...




 Her skirt




This beauty was just lying on the porch steps
as I walked into the house.
I couldn't pass it up...


Happy Holidays
