The Start Up

Here are a few pages I am working on...just in pencil...and then on with the color!

I am experimenting with old make-up to use like oil pastels and soft pastels....I hate throwing it out, so I will recycle it and see what happens...who knows!

The top book is my new journal...it has natural paper with a nice look and feel to it. The middle book is a journal where I write inspirational quotes and ideas. And of course...last evening I got my new issue of Somerset Studio...which is total inspiration and like an art class with every issue. My true vice.

I'm Back!!!

After taking months off from my blog and art to be caregiver for my Mom...I have decided I needed to do my art for my own sanity! I am starting small with art journals...hopefully I can use them to vent, hope, pray and possibly some of the works will become a painting one day...I am so full of ideas and just do not have the time to do much for myself. But...I am where I should be...making my Mom as happy and comfortable for as long as the Spirits let her stay. I will only be able to post art once a week...but my observances and musings may still appear in between. It's great to be back...I sure missed my blogging community and the kindred spirits I have met on this blogland journey.

New Self-Portrait

Me...playing around with my camera and photoshop again!

Happy Valentine's Day!

This is an oil painting study from an old Master's painting. It is appropriately titled "The Kiss."
