In the neighborhood

I am everywhere and nowhere..

Creatively speaking I hit a rough patch recently,  I arrived at the point without a desire to create and my attempts to paint went awry.  Refraining from beating myself up over this dry spell (ok I admit to a small temper tantrum), I decided to make an effort to do other things. A brisk walk around the neighborhood is one of my favorite things to do to clear my head.  On occasions I would take time to observe, photographing interesting things  along the way.

One of the images I photographed was an old house in the neighborhood which I have passed many times. I always admired the structure and unique ornate features of the house. This image was the spark to start me off on my little painting adventure.

Always fascinated with the stories behind the facade but alas the only information I could find on this old house was the date it was built, 1896.

I’ve been using a sta-wet palette, it helps keep my paints from drying out.

Art of listening

The power to truly listen to that which wants to come through you can be a tough thing to accomplish. Life happens, distractions occur but finding a quiet spot to sit and let your mind wander works wonders…. When words find you in that space where your mind fades, magic happens. Sometimes we just need to get out of our own way.

Writing my morning pages brought forth this intuitive sketch..


 

 

Thank you for stopping by to view my work and videos..

Mindful

Without a plan, I just let the paint take form on paper and this image came forth, as the words “my mind is full” swirled in my head..

Switching it up

This face swap feels a little sketchy to me. Having a little fun swapping faces with my drawings.

Happy Friday the 13th…

Fill up

Do the things that bring you joy and fills your soul. Create your moments!
