A New Love

Hey, it's been some time I've posted. It wasn't my intention to stay away so long but there have been many reasons for my delay. I'm hoping that you all have had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. It's been kind of blah out this way for the past few weeks actually and I think my mood has been matched by the weather.
Some good things have happened though. My grandson took his first steps all alone on May 22nd ...YAY..!!! They had been on vacation and the little sweetie decided to wait til he got back to grandma's to go off on his own.
I've been taking a few workshops online . One of them is over at Roses On My Table. It is such a wonderful place to find awesome projects and Zinnia is such a fantastic teacher. Her latest workshop is using beeswax and oil pastels on your image. Well, I've got to say, I have found a new love. There is something about the smell of the wax and the texture it gives my pieces that just makes me HAPPY. I can't stop myself from looking for images to use and my ideas just don't fit in my head
Here are a few of the pieces I've worked on and am working on at the moment.

I am also taking a wonderful workshop with Paula Insall "Divine Romance". This is a workshop that helps you to channel God's work through your art. It has been a very positive experience for me so far and I recommend it to all who would love to project your feelings through your art.

This is what I have so far..

I am also doing my morning pages from "The Artist"s Way" and I need a new book. I found this juicy fat book in my stash but didn't really like the cover. What would any of you do ???? Of course, transform it to your personal liking and that is what I did....what do you all think? Still have the back to do but here is it..


So, I have lots of ideas floating around in my head and am thinking of sharing some ideas with all of you via videos...Is there anything you would like to see or have anything you'd like to share with me just leave me a note and I will get back to you. Happy Creating to you all and many Blessings..!!!!!

It's May...!!!

Yep, can't believe it either. Mother's Day is just a week away, it's crazy how time flies. I've been having a not so good day today..kind of blah. Don't have any idea why it's just one of those days. It's so weird because I've been doing really well these last few weeks. My gluten free diet has been helping me feel so much better physically. I guess now I have to figure out what's wrong emotionally...arrrghhhhh.
I'm sure it will pass, although I've had a really good quiet work day today. I painted and created my little butt off. Let me show you what I've been up to.

First, here is an art journal page I did a few weeks ago, only now it's on a canvas.

It needs a little tweaking but it's just about done.

Here is a finished piece on watercolor paper.

Here are a few I've started today;

These are from my night time journal...I usually like to do a little entry before I go to bed.

This was an exercise for my workshop over at 21 Secrets...Three Little Words.

And last but not grandson Andrew's first haircut...he was soooooo good.
