This site is about my life in the art studio. It includes drawings, paintings, knitting and cross stitch and fun art techniques. I will also include recipes and yoga and book reviews. This is a lifestyle blog with intentional and simple living ideas.
It’s been another few weeks, or has it been months, since I posted. I have been taking care of myself, doing some thinking and making changes. Actually big changes.
I have not enjoyed my career for a long time. I am now making a decision to open my own art as therapy business. I am a registered art therapist and want to try online art as therapy sessions. I named my business Zen Art and Wellness. You can find me under that name on Instagram and Youtube. I am really excited to get my first few clients.
This tulip painting has been sitting on my easel for some time. I wanted this to be a quick painting, turns out the only way for anything to be quick is to actually work on it!!! But I have been side tracked with developing my business. I am now done with most of the “boring” business stuff and can now be creative. I am still working my other job as a counselor, until I can live off of my business.
I am going to really try to focus on making more art and getting it on Etsy, I have not shown my best art, so there will be a clean up on it and I might be making a change to where I sell my art. Not sure yet….
The tulip painting will be for sale, both in print and the real painting on canvas!!!!
Here is me in my studio. I bought some new lights, but I need a few hooks to put it up, so maybe off to the store later today for that. Might be my evening adventure.
Enjoy your day and take a look at my art on Etsy! And check out my business as well on Instagram and Youtube.
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.
I have been busy with my job, so there was a delay to post on this blog and to post new art for my Etsy shop… I also have been fighting my chronic fatigue.
I have a little update on Rue Paris… I still have to finish this row, one more page left.
I have been watercoloring in my journal. Some art is up for sale on Etsy. These are close up images.
Pen and ink drawing
I only did one pen and ink. It is up for sale on Etsy.
Color pencil drawing
I have not decided if I want to put this up for sale. I normally don’t draw figures.
Finished a scarf using searsucker knit stitch. Not for sale.
That is what I have been up to. Also I have blanket I am stitching using crochet. I ordered a book to learn more crochet stitches. I self-taught knitting so I can self-teach crochet.
Coming next year
I have been working on an adult coloring book, I have designed the pages and waiting for more visions. Once it is completed I will decide how to publish it. My goal is this time next year to have it published.
