Hopefully this blog will inspire you to have confidence in your creative abilities and give you courage to learn and try new things. Try something NEW. It could be just what you need to make you a better artist, or a better person.

For the Birds, PPF and 2 ladies in hats

A Study in Values
Two Ladies in Hats:  Done in my Watercolor Class yesterday. We were supposed to learn about values.  I went very loosey goosey.  Watercolor, Pen and Ink.  7x10 on hot press paper.   Daily Paintworks Auction

For the Birds: On June 1st, I will be posting my entries in the monthly facebook challenge, ACEO TW JUN, auctions on Ebay.  The theme this month is Birds, and they have to be ATC size, 2.5 x 3.5 inches.  Here are mine.  If you want to see lots more, search for ACEO TW on Ebay after June 1.  I cannot post the links until tomorrow.
