A New Painting

Acrylic painting

I am proud of my latest art. I have been trying to focus more on creating art than focusing on overworking myself in my job.

Spending Time in the Studio

The Paintings

This morning has been very humid, so I spent the morning in my studio. I wanted to try a black and white painting. It’s been such a long time since I have drawn and painted using black and white.

First I drew a sketch a few weeks ago. Then I used a 11″x14″ canvas board. Normally I don’t paint on these boards often.

I am waiting for it to dry and will go back to it soon to add more depth and detail.

I also worked on the flower scribble acrylic painting.

I will work on it more soon. Also needing it to dry.

Coming Soon

I have been thinking about putting together a book about creating in a visual art journal. It’s something I’m going to try to work on once a week. Eventually I will be posting more about it and hopefully can get it sold.

I decided to not do YouTube videos as I want time to work on my book. I wasn’t enjoying video creating but I will post videos from time-to-time on Instagram.

Happy Day

Yellow Flower Painting

Today I had some time to start a new painting. I get into my painting moods, currently that’s what I want to do.

I draw out a sketch of what I want to paint. Then I paint the first layer of colors.

This is where it is at. I’m loving the negative spaces (white areas).

I have been using the student grade acrylic paints. I will be upgrading the paint by next year. But in the meantime, I’ll paint with what I have.

I’ll update soon,

Happy Day

Rue Paris Cross Stitch

Second page out of 18 pages are completed!

It’s been a long time since I worked on my cross stitching.

Update Photos

There’s so much detail and changing of colors. I have been enjoying it.

I will get to work on it more because I’m working from home now. And in between my breaks I can stitch a little.

Happy Day

Caroline
