Still Practicing...


























Tell me you see a tiny teeny bit of Botticelli influence and I will be be happy. I'm continuing the practice with textures and colors in my journal and having so much fun. Trying to work up the courage and patience to do a large painting. I'm forcing myself to do hands and more of the body. Really, I am. But those pieces are awkward still and don't want to come out of hiding.

I"m loving some new apps (for those who got new IPADs or IPhones for Christmas) called Master Pieces and Art Museum. These are art games that you can play while educating yourself about good art. I'm also hooked on Pinterest - a virtural dream image board that can give you loads of inspiration and ideas.

I'm also trying to clean out the clutter, organize the finances for tax season, and set goals and dreams for the new year.

I see beautiful images from your blogs everyday that feed my artist's soul and spur me on. Have I thanked you lately for being my friend? Because it's no small thing to me. I love our creative molecules bouncing all around, back and forth, like a gigantic game of art basketball.

I hope I'll have more to share soon.

I agree with everything you say--I can't get enough of the inspiration and mostly support--I don't know where I'd be right now without everyone--I'm always doubting myself.
Also love the journaling and all that texture-I'm also discovering the freedom of journaling.
P.S Just sctratching the surface of Pinterest-I'm actually trying to stay away-becaause I know I could be in there for hours.

I'm thinking this would have looked wonderful on a large canvas, so beautiful. It's a great community of creative souls that's for sure.
