100 Day Project
A little late on the draw posting the images, but I finally completed all 100 days of art this past August.
My theme for this project 100 Days Of Cookie Cat, all cat illustrations were completed on 5×5″ format (140 lb watercolor paper), using a variety of mediums.
You can view the beginning stages of art #1-30 on my previous blog post

Thank you for stopping by!
On the surface it may seem I just breezed through thirty 5×5″ cat illustrations, but in reality it can be comparable to Cookie cat trying to squeeze into a small space on a chair her human occupies..

Every so often I like to change things up and create abstract art. I like the freedom and exploration of the process. The past few weeks I have been working on two mixed media paintings simultaneously. Working on these paintings felt like a tug of war, a love hate relationship, a labor of love with lots of juicy layers.
Life in abstract: Acrylic paint, graphite, varnish on handmade wood frame.
Strange lands: Acrylic paint, graphite, varnish on handmade wood frame
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.
It felt like I was adrift at sea too long, encountered many storms along the way, but the journey has been a thrill. The weather has changed, now my course is set, I will hang on for a bit longer and enjoy the view.
My illustrated life set up- Background: acrylic on canvas. Small sailboat and my mini me: watercolor, pen on paper
Just keep moving, doesn’t matter how fast, as long as you don’t give up.
I am back to my 100 artworks challenge after a small hiatus this summer!

When the artwork was created, I let the brush and paint guide me. The pattern and color took shape on the canvas and I intuitively let the image come forth. As I viewed the painting today for the first time in months, I understand the message. Today the image spoke to me.
Step out of the shadows, be light, take flight. You never know what you can achieve until you try!

Celebrate! For anyone that supports, encourages and helps someone grow as a person.
Fall….fall….fall… down & down & down but then I stopped to look around
