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.
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.
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.
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.
