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.
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.
Today was a day of a little work in the morning. Then cleaning the house to buying flowers. And a nap. Then exercise which consisted of a walk and arm exercises. (I need to get toned)!
Then I decided to paint a little would be a nice break from all of the color pencil drawings.
The New Paintings
It’s the first layer ..I have no idea what this will look like. It started as a scribble.
I want these to be a pair. And most likely will sell them as a pair.
I have 3 more weeks of my office job and then I will be starting a new job later this summer and get to work from home. I am excited to have more time to paint and draw. It’s the best decision I have made.
This afternoon, lunch was planned. Lately, my stomach has been picky. I have to eat gluten free dairy free and soy free. Having digestive issues, rheumatoid arthritis and lipedema, this is the best diet to keep inflammation under control.
Portobello Mushroom Pizza
Vegan parmesan cheese
Set toaster oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the stems and scrap out the black veins of the mushroom. Use a spoon or something blunt.
Put some olive oil on the mushroom where the stem was.
Bake in toaster oven for 3 minutes.
Flip the mushrooms over.
Add tomato sauce and cheese. Bake for 20 minutes. Keep an eye on it, mine was done in 15 minutes.
I served it with potatoes fried in olive oil. You can make a salad or have it with spaghetti. I was craving potatoes!
