How many times shall I fall off of this blogging horse...how many??? I honestly have the best intentions, and well...sigh...
A few updates...
My mom-from my last post was diagnosed on Christmas Day with State 4 Pancreatic Cancer... She is doing incredibly well...like miracle status! In fact, as I write this, they. My parents and all of the grandkids are on the way to Florida for the week...
That being said...this gal is Kidless!!! What to do...what to do???
On to other happenings...
I recently did a lecture/demo over at the Art Bar in Raleigh using the mixed media line by Pebeo.
Loads and Loads of fun!
Here is the finished piece from the demo.
I just absolutely LOVE working with these paints!
The Art Bar is such a great to hang out...
Last night, I decided to attend a sketching meet up there...remember, I'm Kidless!!
We did torn image sketching. Again...loads and loads of fun!
In the studio, I continue to create in my journal...seems like such a long time since I have been able to do so..
I can not thank you all enough for hanging around with me!
I can not believe its been almost a month since I have paid this blog a visit...sigh!! So much has been going on, and I can't seem to catch a break!!!
Christmas day, was spent in the ER with my mom where she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer---and life has just been turned upside down! My parents live about 4ish hours away, so I spend a great deal of time on the road!!!
My art bag is always packed and ready to go as it is my only sanity!!!
It's amazing how creating takes me away from all of my troubles...so I do...alot!!!
In the midst of it all...I am still demoing a lot- which also helps me keep my sanity!! ---and, Jerrysartarama in Raleigh FINALLY stocked Gelli Plates!!!
I am also preparing for a show in Wake Forest!!!! Lots and lots more to do there!!!
A lot of time is just spent plain and simple- me and my journal--a few pens, and markers...
Just passing the time...
Although....yesterday was absolutely glorious here in NC...so I set up my studio outside for a bit!!!
Creates the perfect opportunity for me to head off to my studio!!!!
I have been playing a lot with the Mixed Media line by Pebeo as I prepare for the Artists Materials Expo this weekend in Atlanta!!! If you are in the area...please stop by the Pebeo booth and experience these bottles of pure joy for yourself. I will be there Friday, Saturday, and Sunday demoing in the booth....and I can not wait!
I did this piece on Ampersand Gessoboard...and I just am addicted to creating with the Fantasy Moon and Prisme paints!! Addicted, I say!!
Liquid art panels, canvas, even journals are great to play with these guys!!! Addicted!!
The tough part is knowing when to quit....walk away, Ophelia...just walk away!!
I just can't get enough of pouring and letting go to watch the magic happen!!!
I did this color chart in my journal using black gesso and I absolutely love how the colors pop on black!!!
