Pretty in Pink

I love dresses. In the summer I live in dresses, and the winter makes me miss my collection that collects dust in the closet. I have painted a whole series of dresses, and hope to paint one for the Holiday season. So far all the red dresses I have painted have not turned out well. However I still enjoy the process.

Had a great weekend. Very productive. Painted all day and baked apple pies for Thanksgiving. I finished one painting
and started another one. I call that a wonderful Sunday.
These flowers were painted a while back. I used part of the design for my banner.
I need to start posting current projects. Promise after the holiday.

Set My Spirit Free

This past weekend my boyfriend and I went rock climbing in Joshua Tree, and I found the camping and crisp clean air do my soul good. I find everything about the desert beautiful. I feel it cleanses my body, mind and spirit. In nature I feel free and happy. I think it's my natural way of being. Amazing how work and the every day grind can take it's toll. There was little down time, so I was unable to do any sketching. Plus my hands fingers were tender from climbing! I am ready for the week and hopefully I can finish up a painting or two!

Bubble Fish in the Fish Bowl

I just finished up Marisa Haedike's (owner/artist of Creative Thursday) e-course In the Fishbowl. I am sad the six week course is over, because it really motivated me to set clear goals as being an artist and the path I want to take. Also learned a plethora of information as marketing myself as an artist on-line, and connected with other artists. The creative wheels are turning, and it's been a while, so there are a little rusty! I highly recommend any of Marsia's e-courses. Check out Marisa's blog. She has all sort of goodies to view! In honor of her class I painted the 'Bubble Fish'. Thanks again Marisa!
Happy Friday!
