I love flowers, butterflies and rainbows, but it’s also rewarding to visit the not so happy side, and get it out in art. I am still learning to do this but it’s very rewarding emotionally and artistically to be able to express how I am feeling through art. Turning darkness into light was created using Daniel Smith and Jane Davenport watercolors.
WIP (Work in Progress) currently untitled – When you can release what hides in your mind. This is a quick snap of part of the painting that will take awhile. I’m pretty pleased with it so far and am again, challenging myself to do things I have never done. So far I am using only Daniel Smith watercolors.
My latest painting I completed late last night. This year, one of my resolutions was to challenge myself artistically and finish my classes. There are a lot of things here that I have never done and things that I need to work on but what I am happy with her and feel I accomplished expressing what I was after. A girl who is daydreaming and escaping in her flowers and pink wine on a dreary day somewhere fabulous.
Before and After of Bloom 2 was created with watercolors, Primsa Pencils, Aqua Pastels, Scrap Paper, Gesso and digital elements. I have goals that I am working on artistically as well as personally and am feeling a great sense of accomplishment lately. Almost a feeling of starting to bloom.
