Painting in a Journal

I have cardstock of various colors. Each was cut in various sizes and taped onto a board. Then I painted using colors that compliment the paper. After it dried I took acrylic markers and drew in details.

Later, they will be glued into the art journal.

Finished Paintings

I plan to paint more in my art journal for 2023.

Oil Painting

When I went to college, oil painting was the choice of medium. It’s been many years since I used oil painting as my life took a different turn and I was not making art during those years.

I heard about the water soluble oil paints. These paints are nice, the tubes are small, but just enough for what I need. It might help me get back to oil painting.

Flower Art

I mostly paint flowers, mostly in abstract. But this painting I wanted to paint an iris for my bedroom.

Pen and Ink Drawing

The most current pen and ink drawings have been posted on Etsy.

I have been working on these drawings for awhile and finally finished.

It’s a calming way to draw with micron pens.

Bold, Bright, Beautiful

Lately I have been painting in my art journal. I use acrylic paint. The intention of painting in a journal is to practice mindfulness and relaxation.

It’s the end of the year and I realized I just haven’t been writing in this blog much. I hope to publish more and make more art next year.
