New LIVE online painting class in November!

New LIVE online painting class in November What do a blank moleskine journal, ornament, trinket box, a wood disk, and paint brushes have in common? They are all part of a new LIVE online class I'm planning for November! I will broadcasting live from my studio showing you how you can create special one of a kind hand painted gifts for your friends and family this holiday season. Giving you the ability to be a creative artistic gift giver! Nothing shows a person how much they mean to you quite like a gift you make with your very own hands.

Recordings will be available shortly after each live broadcast for those who can't attend the live session (or if you want to re-watch them later). For all the details once they are ready, be sure to sign up here: http://eepurl.com/cRig6

Much love + blessings,

Watercolor play!!!

20130130-153542.jpg Aiden is still home sick from school today (day three) and I'm starting to have painting withdrawals since I haven't been able to go to my studio since last week. The only paint I have left here at home is my watercolors, so I'm taking being stuck here at home as a sign that it's time to start exploring working with them (which I've been wanting to do any way, but haven't taken the time).

I'm using one of the barely used journals I have (I keep trying to do the "art journaling" thing, but it just never seems to gel for me....I'm more of a sketcher when it comes to journaling). It has heavy weight double sized paper that works for wet media, so I was hoping it would work for this little experiment...and it did! Can't wait to try this on the couple of pieces of watercolor paper I found this morning that missed getting moved to the studio. :)

I've also been brainstorming ideas for my next paintings as well as what my next painting class will be at my studio (in Portland, OR). I'm planning it for the evening of March 8th (which is a Friday) and I'm going to teach an abstract background with a whimsical tree for this next one. What do y'all think?

Much love + blessings,

Sketches + ideas

my son is home sick from school today, so studio time was a no go. i found myself with alot of pent up creative energy, so I had to find an outlet. that's how these sweet little girls came about. :)

i've been meaning to get back to my digi stamp idea, but too many other things kept coming up. then today i had to find a way to satisfy my creative urge while staying in the same room with the kiddo to make sure he stayed still and resting (something very difficult for him, even when he's sick he won't stay still for long).

after a little facebook drive by on my phone from my spot next to him on the couch, i had my answer. :)

thankfully our scanner and printer are here in the same room, so i was able to scan and print out my drawing. then i grabbed some colored pencils, sat back down on the couch and went to work.

now to cut her out, grab some of my scrapbooking paper stash, and make a card for my son's teacher for teacher appreciation week. :D

i would LOVE to know what y'all think of this drawing! i'm thinking of going more this direction with my digi stamps and i could really use your input!

thanks bunches y'all!!! xoxo

Much love + blessings,
