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. My latest obsession is Amigurumi Crochet, and my favorite subjects right now are Hollywood Icons, Famous People and Characters.

Christmas Cards and Watercolors PPF

Watercolor Week

I seem to be in a watercolor mood this week. The class I have been taking for 3 years is on hiatus for Thanksgiving week, so I am not doing any assignments, just playing with fun stuff.  My daughter took a photo of an old teddy bear at the swap meet because she thought I might like to use it for a reference.  I think it would look great in a baby's room, but there are no little ones in our family right now so I am auctioning it on Ebay.

The Red Tulip was fun because it was painted upside down, from a lesson I found online. I love the way watercolors in the background blended using the wet in wet technique.    

Here are some Christmas/Holiday cards I painted for the Pasadena Senior Center art show on Dec 3. They will be sold for $5 and the money donated to the center. My weekly Watercolor Art Class is held at the PSC every week, and we have a lovely bunch of artists in the group. 

I also entered 3 of my paintings in the judging, which are also for sale.
