A little listening pleasure for you from a favorite spirit of mine….trackunknown….. Scaring up a halloween witch ~ flying the dark night skies in search of a good time! Gouach Resist Technique Taught to me by Jane at Random Arts – Happy Halloween to all!!! There Was an Old Witch Halloween Song There […]
As part of a lesson on reworking a piece you aren’t happy with I discovered this wise and wonderful owl friend…I had tossed aside this tree and moon acrylic painting from months ago. In my Year of Painting class along came a lesson on reworking a painting so I picked it up again – turned it and dug out some old book papers. Here is what happened …he seems to be saying…”I was here all along!”
I thought it would be fun to record progress (hopefully there will be some!ha!) this is the beginnings of a piece from a “mixed media” class that started today – taught by the fabulously inspiring Jane Ross;) <!
Our Mixed Media Collabrative Group had a recent challenge to swap envelopes …we designed enough to trade…fun exchange!
Not only was it fun to recieve them at our meeting but now they can go in the mail and be a surprise to someone else! Sharing art has been a great experience with this group and in blogland!
Here are mine created from prints I did in a recent gelli printing class. I used red rosin paper a generous freind, Patty of Magpie’s Nest, supplied me with for the printing. Then I went in with stamps, pen and ink and a few fun travel stickers…lined them with maps …and they are ready to post!
I did send one from coast to coast, it arrived just fine – so they work!
These are the ones I recevied in my trade from the other members:
Snail Mail Alert: Colorful Envelopes on their way!!!
I mentioned in an earlier post that I am participating in an online course by Alena Hennessy called A Year of Painting. I thought that since June marks our half way through the year mark I would do a gallary of my paintings.
Alena has done a great job of inspiring, pacing and opening up the class up creatively to new ideas and for me new mediums and surfaces. I have enjoyed the intuitive approach she presents and her supportive nature.
Here are my samples from the past six months…
2) playing with ink & paint
4) soul collage
5) magic faces
6) glitter love bomb
7) botanical beauty
8) animal spirit guide
