Back on Track

I know it is only 5 days into 2017, but I have accomplished something BIG already..I organized my art studio (i.e. guest bedroom), which is my designated spot for art. I always end up making a mess in there, which causes a creative block, forces me to move to a new space, destroy new space, move, destroy..repeat cycle until I am serving dinner to my husband at the couch.  I am going to enjoy it while it lasts, and I am pretty sure he will too.

This is my #2 art of the day for 2017…All that cleaning and reorganizing set me behind a little 😉.

Learning Opportunities

I am a self taught artist, so I find that I work way harder to accomplish a look, or a technique that I could master alot quicker if I just had access to basic art fundamentals.  This basic knowledge gives me a better understanding of what it takes to produce high quality,  long lasting artwork.

YouTube has a ton of free instructional videos covering a plethora of art demonstrations.  Udemy has some free classes and some paid classes that have been well worth it!  Lastly, I use Skillshare,  it is a 10 dollar a month fee to take unlimited classes.

There is barely a day that passes that I don’t take at least one class.  Afterwords I am super stoked to create something!! I ❤️ art!!

Here is a little peak of what I worked on today.. I will finish it tomorrow!

Welcoming 2017

It’s that time again, resolutions for the upcoming year.  Mine are pretty simple… Spend more time with the people I love ❤️ and create some sort of art everyday!!  Cheers to an amazing 2017!!  Here is my first artwork of the year.  Watercolor 6×9 I have Disney on the brain.. a little Belle..a little Cinderella-ish 😊
