I painted a couple of flower paintings in my journal for my Lifebook class. The flowers were painted with Twinkling H2O's which are very shimmery watercolor paints. They are fun to use and I love the shimmer. The colors are intense and beautiful too. I painted the borders with Silks acrylic glaze which is also very shimmery paint. I also added bits of gold paint to add extra shimmer. If you ever have a chance to use these paints I would recommend them.
I am still working on preparing for my daughter's open house, but we only have one more week and then I can create more.
Have a great weekend.
I finished this mixed media painting last week and I taught this style of mixed media to a group of mostly teen girls. It was fun teaching and seeing all that they came up with. I am still busy with graduation preparations, but I also started a new painting in my journal. I'll share that when it is done too. For now have a great weekend.
I started a mini gallery in my front room yesterday. Now I need to get to painting so that I can fill more of my space. These are all small paintings here. I'm still getting ready for my graduate's open house and I thought that this would be a nice way to spruce up this wall.
I have a few new pages to show off. I haven't had as much time for art lately because of a busy time with my daughter graduating from high school. Soon all the busy work will be over and I can get back to more art. It is nice creating all these family memories though.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my new pages and have a great month of May.
Another Bird Painting
I just finished another painting. This one has a mixed media background and another bird painted on top. I also used part of a poem by Emily Dickinson that is one of my favorites.
Have a wonderfully creative weekend. I have been very busy with preparations for my daughter's birthday and her graduation from high school. Later in the summer I will have more time for art.
I finished a new painting this week. I wanted to celebrate spring finally making it to my part of the world. This painting is mixed media on an 8x8 canvas.

Have a wonderful weekend,

I have a loving husband who thinks I'm a bit crazy to be so obsessed with art. I am a mother of five children from ages 21 to 5. I spend most of my time mothering and keeping house. In my free time I like to play with textiles, art journaling and painting. I have a degree in textile and apparel studies with a design focus. Right now I am more interested in fiber arts than apparel design, but I don't know where my journey will take me.
Check out my husband's website. He is a writer and has written about our life and many other amusing stories.
