Studio Projects Update

The New Year has been slow going for me. I haven’t had much energy to do much.

It was a cold day, I had a few clients and then I made hot butternut soup and had chicken on a gluten free bagel. Very delicious.

The Drawing

Lately I have been wanting to draw and color. I’m working on this peacock. Using mixed media of color pencils and acrylic markers.

Stitching

Here’s an update on Rue Paris

I have 2 more columns left to stitch then I can start of the sky or the road. Not sure which one I’ll pick.

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.

Etsy Shop

My Etsy shop is open and has some amazing pen and ink drawings and acrylic paintings that are sold in prints. Check it out https://4PawsArtStudio.etsy.com

Happy New Year

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.

Paintings

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.

Here’s what I have been up to

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.

Cross stitch

I have a little update on Rue Paris… I still have to finish this row, one more page left.

Watercolor

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.

Knitting

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.

Here’s my Etsy shop – http://www.etsy.com/shop/4pawsartstudio

Thank you for supporting me.

A New Knit Stitch

It’s been awhile since I posted about my knitting. I took a break, opened an Etsy shop and got caught up on cleaning and organizing my home.

I have been working on minimizing what I own. Reading a book, the joy of less by Francine Jay. It’s just time to minimize my life and find peace in what I have.

Knitting

Here is my latest knit stitch. It is called Seersucker stitch. I am planning to make a scarf with this stitch..
