Spring Line-Up

Encouraged and inspired this morning by my friend, Paula. If you’re like me and needing a little nudge toward the light at the end of the tunnel, click: I’m Eighteen

Paula was the catalyst for me dreaming up Spring this morning with this Spring Line-Up: (L-R) Adirondack Gold, Silver, Wild Plum, Stream, Sunshine Yellow and Citrus.

I was also inspired by something new to try: Yupo Blue. It has a little more tooth than regular yupo. I found it easier to work with. This sample arrived from Norway, courtesy Marianne :)

Thanks to Paula and Marianne for reminding me of light-filled, new, opportunities.

Let’s Keep Dreaming :)

30 in 30 Reflections

Actually, it was 25 in 30 and what a hodge-podge! We’ve got representational and non-representational in watercolor, acrylics, oils and alcohol inks! Overall, grateful for this month of exploration and diversity. Left with a feeling of giving it my best. My favorite?

Day 31 – 30 in 30 Painting Challenge: This is so revealing. 30 in 30 ended yesterday and I didn’t realize it. Guess I’ve been a little focused ;) For what I thought was the last day of the 30 in 30 Challenge, I painted this night scene. The Challenge has been a push for me and I am feeling a little tired, a good kind of tired, but tired all the same. Will ponder and post soon my reflections on the 30 in 30. Leslie gives us 3 day grace period. For now, feeling a pull to retreat into night mysteries where creativity recharges and dreams are created.

Today’s Awareness

Time to say goodnight.

Day 28 – 30 in 30 Painting Challenge: Have been experimenting with new methods which means more went in the trash than on the drying table. But that’s okay, I’m loving this one treasure pulled from the heap of Dreamscapes I did today :)

Today’s Awareness

Work small when experimenting. Less to throw away :D

Day 27 – 30 in 30 Painting Challenge: I love how this 2nd chance Dreamscape eventually turned out. Below is the first version:

I loved parts of it enough to sign it. But, when I looked at it with a fresh eye the next morning, I saw the two large shapes were too similar.  I knew I had to be willing to lose it all to make it better.

Today’s Awareness

Take 2nd Chances.
