Finally Friday

...and it honestly could not come fast enough!!
Good Friday morning friends!!!!  I am finally back in my art journal amongst other things and wanted to give you a peek at what I have been up to.
It seems like forever since I have completes a journal page...and I feel kind of rusty at it.
I also decided to pull out some watercolor paper and just goof off... Here it is so far...
Not even sure of where its going, but it was a lot of fun!!!
I am also gearing up for a full weekend at Jerrys this weekend with 2...yes, 2 demos back to back on Saturday and Sunday...talk anout art all weekend...and I'm looking forward to it.  And, I have a full weekend of teaching next weekend at Theresa's Studio on Saturday and then back at Jerrys on Sunday to teach a workshop...soooo....its art goodness all around!!
I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend.
Until next time,
Ophelia

I Did It!!!

Stick a fork in it and lets call this turkey...DONE!
You may remember this canvas...it has just tortured me with its taunting...
So...I added some marks to it...because hey...what else could go wrong...right??
On Sunday, I spent the day painting woth my good friend Sharon
I had the greatest day ever!!!  We played for hours!!!!
And I kicked some canvas BUTT!!!
This was honestly the greatest feeling I have had in a while...kind of like a break through...or an "ah ha" kind of moment when things just clicked...and before I knew what was even happening...I completely let go!!!
That canvas that I was so afraid of before transformed into something that I actually liked!!!
So...I did some things I have NEVER done before...
I signed it...
I varnished it...
And had it framed!!!!
Greatest Day Ever!!!
Until next time,
Ophelia

Finally Friday!!!

Hi Everyone!  Hope your Friday is off to a great start!   I woke up super early today, and tried my hand once again at the canvas that is on my easel...yes, it seems to taunt me, so, I keep going at it..
In my last post, it looked like this.
Then, it went to
And here
Now we are here...
No idea where its going, but I will keep at it...sigh...
I'm not even sure of why I have such a love hate relationship with a canvas or why I can't seem to finish one...just no idea!!!
Here are a few photos from my Art Doodle Love journal...  
I live the no pressure of just playing around simply to wear down my pencils!!
No pressure what so ever!!!  Gotta love that!!!
After such a long, rough week at work, I am totally looking forward to a long weekend in my studio...using up some art supplies, playing around with no pressure, and yes, maybe wven making some more marks on that canvas.
Until next time,
Ophelia

Attempts at Another Canvas

Hi everyone...  Happy Tuesday.  I wanted to share with you some more attempts at  painting on canvas.  
I am not sore of why a canvas is just so tough for me...but it is...sigh
So...here is another I did...smaller size than the first...
And well another try on a giant canvas...
My problem is that I never know what to do next....
So then I started in with some oil pastels...don't even ask where this is going...no idea!!!  I was just trying to unleash a very rough day at work...and since today was even rougher...I will be sure to post pics of what happens to this guy!
Until next time,
Ophelia

Happy Monday...

Wanted to drop in and show you a little something I gifted myself with... Art Doodle Love!!
I got this book because I had seen so many others with it...and when I got it in my studio, I knew exactly what I needed to use it for...wearing my colored pencil collection down!!!
This has been a whole lot of fun!!
I have lots and lots going on in my studio...prepping for several new classes at Jerrys, and Im teaching again at Theresa's studio in June...
This party never seems to end...
Enjoy your day everyone.
Until next time,
Ophelia
