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.
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.
It’s been awhile since I sat at my art table. It’s been a difficult few weeks. I learned of a new diagnosis as to the reason my legs swell. There’s no cure. But eating less carbs and mostly eat fruit and veggies will help maintain my health.
This morning I organized my snacks and put some in containers to have for this week. I’m also going to make my lunch for tomorrow before the end of the day.
I took another job something to make extra money on the side. I’m hoping it will be full time at some point. I get to work from home with this job. Yeah.
I want to return to painting and reorganize my Etsy shop which I closed. I won’t reopen it until I paint consistently.
Here’s what I have been painting lately. It starts as a scribble on canvas then I make it into an image. Flowers tend to be my topic.
