What scares me, this challenge

Oh I wanted to put this book back on the shelf as soon as I picked it up. It scared me to even consider this daily challenge but felt the need to give it a try. Most days I try to live a non boring existence but some days I need an extra push.

Some of the things that scare me: 

making this list!

small talk

Hot Sauce! 

me in front of a camera (on video extra scary)

showing my art

monochromatic clothing!

speaking in front of an audience

my hair!

meeting new people

dancing (when someone is watching)

I could go on, but I won’t! 😬

New adventures

Having a little fun.. Painting process from start to finish.

Reflection in the studio

Feeling a little gratitude today. I realized how much I enjoy the WordPress community of bloggers. So much creativity, inspiration and support.  I want to give a shout out to say thank you to everyone that visited, read my blog, followed and commented.  I enjoy all the connections made! 

A glimpse of my art space where I am preparing a new canvas. I will be sharing my creative process, on Periscope @flufnutter  you can view recent videos. Be forewarned,  I am new at this live video thing so it may take me a few more videos to get comfortable filming. 

Life in pieces

Slicing and dicing my way to something new. Inspired by my old seashell frame I decided to have a little fun experimenting with recycled material, and reusing my old watercolor art. 

 

Recycled material: Heavy weight cardboard, picture frame (no glass) decorative paper and my watercolor art.

Chopping things up is very therapeutic.. My art in pieces!

Placed decorative paper on the cardboard, after playing with the placement of the art I adhered the pieces to the board. Washes of paint were added to the background and I coated everything with clear matte mod podge to seal it.  The final result.
