Playing with "She Art" on a 6x12 canvas panel

boy i am all over the place with my art these days....i must admit that i really had a great time doing this "she art" ( Christy Tomlinson ) piece even though it is loaded with too much "stuff".( i think)...and the girl is not straight....i got carried away ...paper was flying everywhere and mod podge had my fingers sticking together...... but it is fun, fun, fun....

Zorana's Class

Finally took a photo of the journal i did for Zorana's Class. It is a 8 x 10 accordian style journal that ties on both sides.......Pictured are the front and back covers....the pages are "rosin paper"....I like the size and i know i will enjoy working in it......

Another Sketch

Another charcoal sketch for Gritty Jane's class....i like the charcoal and think i will do more....i think i will use a reference this next time... i think all of the "girls" i do (from my head) look boring!!!!

Stamping & Coloring on Fabric

In Sharon's apron class one of the assignments is to stamp and color on muslin so we can become familiar with the pencils we are using to do the apron art....The color we are using comes from Inktense pencils by Derwent.... they are awesome....i have used them before and really like them....they are watercolour that is permanent when dry....

These butterflies are my practice.....i think they are so pretty.....

Nope, not a Forsythia

this bush outside my kitchen window is not a Forsythia....i have a number of Forsythia bushs on our property and this is way different ....the flower is very different.....i bought it years ago...seems to me it was a Japanesse something or other..???......sorry about the picture but i just cropped the original....
