New Year, New Goals
Welcome 2017! I started this year by joining Teresa Robinson at rightbrainplanner.com for an “Art Party” on New Year’s Eve. I used a journal I had not filled up and created my planner for 2017. Planner is probably too generic, this is more of a creative dreams vision book, and I plan on working in […]
I created this page a few days ago. I call her Wonder Woman, mainly because after I finished it, the little red star looks a bit like Wonder Woman’s headband on the gold. The background had been done a while ago, with the strips of tickets already in place. I began adding more color and […]

Eye on you
I’ve got my EYE on you. Ha! I have been doing studies in acrylic on painting eyes. There a lot of different approaches to this available on You Tube and other places, but I have really enjoyed the exploration. This study is about 3 inches wide on paper in acrylic. I am also working on […]
It has been a while. I mean—a long long time! Months since I have put paint on canvas, and really just PAINTED. Naturally, a coffee cup seems to be my go to image, but that is okay by me. I always have one handy, and whether it is coffee or tea or even diet Coke, […]
Its almost the end of August
WOW! Where did the summer go people??? This has been my obsession the last few days, one of our Empori’s, dyed a beautiful orange, and I have been adding wash tape to the mixed paper inserts. Also, adding more layers of paper on top of some pages to hold up to the painting I plan […]
