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.

Have Fun with Left-Over paint
I collected the dripping paint onto a tray. After I was finished with the coaster, I took paper and pressed it into the left over paint and made a print. I also brushed paint into my sketch book. This is a fun background for a sketch book multi-media artwork.
I hope you enjoyed this. I have a youtube video about it as well. Check it out.
In my studio today. I’m starting to adapt to working from home. This is the last stretch of going into an office! I’m excited. This is something I wanted to do since last summer.
Today I had a few clients to talk with. I also had to do some cleaning in the house. The last few days my dog has been sick and I found out today nothing serious is happening it must have been a stomach bug.
I made a new YouTube video I’m getting a hang of videoing my art. I admit it is challenging I am not technology savvy but I am willing to learn. So I know only growth could happen from this and I also can learn that it might not be something I want to do long-term then again I might learn it would be something I want to do permanently. This new phase of my life is just opening up doors that I thought I would never have time to explore.
So here’s the video that I made I still need to learn how to edit and shorten the videos that will be my next step.
Lately, I have been watching many YouTube videos of other artists painting. It relaxing to watch. And inspiring.
And I have been listening to The Artists Way. Wow, this is reshaping my mind. When I listen to this, I’m either cooking or drawing.
I went to art school but I never felt that I learned the techniques the Masters used. Watching the YouTube videos has helped me to see the areas I want to work on. The videos have also inspired me to paint or draw daily.
I received some sad news about a friend who passed away she was ill for a while. I will miss her. I found myself in front of a canvas and I started painting. I wanted to use small brush strokes, with the impressionism as my inspiration.
