Dormouse in Hibernation

Hello Friends!

Yesterday I decided to draw a little hibernating dormouse in pencil.

Her name is Dot the Dormouse.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ˜€

Collage of Nature

Hello Friends!

On Sunday afternoon I decided to go through an issue of “Outdoor California” which is published by the Department of Fish & Wildlife, whom my husband has worked with for over 20 years, after listening to a guided meditation online which is what inspired me.

This issue I had on hand containing these pictures and words happened to go along with what I wrote after the meditation which was a lot about exploring the woods and feeling water on my hands and hearing birds in the air. So that was really cool.

Just as I finished, I heard a knock on the door. When I opened it, our son was standing there which was a great surprise! He had just gone hiking for awhile up at Mt. Lassen which isn’t far from us. So he stopped by to visit. We went for a short walk since my husband wasn’t home yet and visited until he came home. Then we all visited fo a little while longer.

So this turned out to be one of the most blessed Easters I have had in a long time! Plus, I didn’t have to cook; we ate leftovers!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ˜€

 

 

HAPPY EASTER!

Hello Friends!

I decided to explore alcohol inks and acrylics on a small piece of canvas today. And this is what happened!

The grace of God in my life is always on my mind. I love the symbol of the empty cross, because it shows me that after Jesus died, he was taken off the cross, buried in a tomb, and rose again.

No matter what you choose to believe, I respect you as a friend. I know God shed His grace on me. And giving others the grace to choose their own beliefs has been a huge area of growth in my life in the last few years.

Happy Easter and blessings to you all.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ˜€

 

Sea Turtle Swimming With Mermaids Mixed Media

Hello Friends!

The other day I posted my paper weaving project. Well, now it has been transformed!

Today I added a watercolor sea turtle, golden mermaids, a few other little paper sea creatures, and some words to describe how just the thought of being at the ocean makes me feel.

This was so much fun! I am really enjoying learning new things to try in the mixed media class I am taking online.

Just in case I don’t have a post for tomorrow, I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday whether you celebrate Easter or not.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ˜€

 

Angel Fish Mixed Media

Hello Friends!

This is a crazy mixed media piece I did yesterday. Just an acrylic Angel fish blowing bubbles with a mermaid, a few tiny crabs, a starfish, a sea horse, and a sea turtle. Can you find them all?

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ™‚

 

Paper Weaving!

Hello Friends!

I like to surprise you with the unexpected once in awhile! I am takingΒ Miriam Schulman’s “Mixed Media Madness”Β class online. I actually am doing several classes right now so I don’t get bored. Ha, ha! Really, I think my A.D D. may just be in high gear. Or I just love variety! πŸ˜‰ Honestly, I know it’s a little bit of both.

Getting back to this paper weaving project, I was watching The Sandlot (the original) while I was cutting and weaving so I think I messed up in a couple of places.

I got a huge bargain on patterned and solid colored paper pads at Michaels…buy 1, get 2 free! So I scooped them up! I am going to be cutting this down to fit it in my art journal and adding some other stuff on top of it to make a mixed media piece.

In orher news, the magazine editor who’s publishing my leafy sea dragon article also accepted my drawing to publish in the article as well. So that’s exciting!

It is already getting warm here in Northern California. I just hope it doesn’t get hot too soon. More rain would also be great! Having an actual Springtime would be nice.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ˜€

Bald Eagle Finished!

 

Hello Friends!

I did not have time to finish my Golden Eagle watercolor until today. It was another enjoyable painting to do!

Yesterday I worked on scanning my leafy sea dragons to email them to the editor of the magazine that my article is going to be published in called Stepping Stones. It took me a long time to figure out how to do it with our copying machine. So I didn’t do any art yesterday. But sometimes it’s good to take a break.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ˜€

 

Bald Eagle Watercolor in Progress

Hello Friends!

On Saturday I had a great art day! I painted the 4×6 of my leafy sea dragon. I am very happy with how it turned out.

Then I decided to work on this eagle some more. I will be trying to finish it today. I am liking how this is turning out, too.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ˜€

Cat & Chicks

 

Hello Friends!

The other night I decided to get my Chinese brushes and ink out to play! So I tried painting the back of a cat and the little chicks it might be looking at.

My first chick came out a bit dark. Painting with ink is definitely a challenge!

I have finished my pen and ink drawing of a leafy sea dragon and am about to do a watercolor of it also. I will be submitting these to the publisher in Monday, hopefully. I need to get them scanned to send in an email. I still don’t know for sure yet whether they will use either one, but just in case, I probably shouldn’t post them.

I hope everyone is having a great Saturday! I am getting ready to paint the watercolor of the leafy sea dragon and hopefully finish my eagle watercolor.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ˜€

 

Dancing Donkey in Pencil

Hello Friends!

I drew this little donkey from a photo on the back of aΒ Ranger RickΒ magazine last night. The photo is credited to KLEIN & HUBERT/NATUREPL.COM in the magazine. And of course this was just a cute guy who caught my eye! But it is so adorable. I have never drawn a baby donkey before. So I had to give it a go!

I have gotten my ink drawing done of my leafy sea dragon, but I still need to do a watercolor of it and send it off to the publisher to see if they want to use either of them for my article. I honestly am still a little in shock about that!

I hope everyone has had a nice week. I didn’t get as much art done this week because I had things to do in town. And I have been watching videos of other artists to try to learn new things. I am always learning!!!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ˜€
