New Painting – Dreamer

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.

Introducing my new instagram dedicated exclusively to Butterflies, Dragonflies and flowers.  I love photographing and now painting flowers, butterflies especially and dragonflies.  I love it not only for their beauty, and all of their wonderful details, but also for the challenge.  It’s a quest and process that I never grow tired of.  This year one of my challenges is learning how to paint them and doing more art with them in addition to photography.  I have challenged myself not only in this area but also to share daily inspiration through this new instagram that I have dedicated just for them.  I have been photographing Butterflies, Dragonflies and Flowers since 2006 and have a lot of photographs but also have a lot that have never been processed. In light of this I decided to share daily and share my love on a daily basis of these wonderful things.  This is my daily 365 challenge.  Please follow us on Instagram and on Facebook for your daily inspirations.  All photography and art posted daily are available as prints by clicking the link on the top of this page.  Thank you for support if you have any questions or request, please feel free to contact me!

WIP: 2/11 -2 Mixed Media

Busy weekend for painting this weekend.  “Practice makes perfect” and I am going full steam ahead with this.  I am submitting my art work for the first time at the member show this year with our local art council.  I have previously submitted my photography but this year it will be my artwork and I am really excited about this.  I haven’t decided what I am submitting yet, but I am enjoying the creative part of figuring that out!

This WIP is mixed media and a combination of Jane Davenport’s aqua pastels, prima pencils, pen and ink, scrap paper, windsor newton watercolors, charcoal pencils.
