Wooden Panel Virgin

So.. I’ve been wanting to paint on a wooden panel forever… So I got this teeny tiny 6×6 to practice on 😍.  I am also trying something a little different.. I really love my  India inks.. somehow I want to use them.. I’m thinking mixing with matte gel medium??? I guess we will see how it goes! Ohhh!! And I also actually picked a color palette.. 4 colors, I used the color wheel and everything.  Wish me luck πŸ™ƒ

Putting It Away

I hate when I am working on something, and I know it isn’t finished, but I am kind of sick of looking at it πŸ˜’.  I guess I will put this duo away until artistic genius strikes,  in the form of a vision.. dream.. auditory hallucination, or someone says “hey…you should give the snake arms and let him play a violin”.  πŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒ I mean that is a strong possibility πŸ˜‚

I will keep you posted πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸπŸŽ» #artist #art

Vacation is OverΒ 

Leaving the sunshine in Florida and going back home! It is a little bittersweet, I love the weather here but I miss my life!! Have not had much time to art anything, aside from random doodles.  I guess they are worth looking at πŸ’—

Met My Idol πŸ˜Š

I have a favorite artist, actually the artist whose work I saw, that inspired me to want to create beautiful things.  Honestly, had I not wandered into the gallery that day… October something in 2015, to be semi exact πŸ˜‚, I would be racking up more debt working on a graduate degree that I wasn’t that excited about.  It was just the “obvious next step” in my career path.  Well long story short, I was able to meet him yesterday during a signing.  I will never forget that awkward encounter πŸ˜‚ and I wouldn’t change a thing.. except I think instead of shaking his hand… I would of hugged him.  Maybe next time!!!

Artists: Supporting Each Other

So, I am pretty shy ☺️,and for whatever reason yesterday I was compelled to post on one of the art Facebook groups that I follow.  I normally just observe, but this particular morning I was feeling a little down about what my artistic abilities are.. and what I want them to be.  I honestly was so touched by the responses, and support that I was shown by strangers.  I received private messages, inspirational quotes, and recommendations for books to read.  I feel very proud and lucky that I can be a part of a community of people who work to build each other up, not step on each other trying to get to the top. πŸ’—
