Painting with paper is a fun activity that inspires creativity!                                                                                            Creating with just sharpies, tissue paper, and a tiny bit of glue can inspire amazing pieces of art. We “Painted with Paper” at  last weeks paint group and the starts are looking very promising !

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

Looking back on 2013 I am most proud of my attempt to incorporate more landscapes into my work through the creation of “landimals”. Landscapes have never been my favorite, but I realized that incorporating animals into a landscape made me much happier with the results. And so, “landimals” was born. Moving forward in 2014, my artistic resolution is   to maintain more of the original lines from my initial painting sketches. I often find that I really love the foundational sketches  on canvas done in pencil, or the first application of paint which is a simple dark line drawing outlining the subject. Because some of my favorite paintings are the ones where this line is maintained in the final piece, I resolve to be aware of this and attempt to maintain these lines as I paint in the coming weeks.

Some of my favorite landimals:
