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.

Lion with a Rainbow Mane PPF

A change of pace. NOT an acrylic pour. LOL

Regal Lion, King of the Jungle, sporting a Rainbow Colored Mane. 
12x12 canvas done with acrylics. I was inspired by a girl I saw at an art show the other day, and her hair was very short, but she had dyed it all of these bright colors. The photo was supplied by Different Strokes an art group on Facebook that provides a challenge once a month for anyone to paint. Leo is October's challenge, but I started early.

I also did a bunch more abstracts for #30paintingsin30days. I will be making a collage for all of them together October 1. That is always fun! This is my 4th 30 day painting challenge. I always have a theme.


  1. Absolutely wonderful! Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

  2. *Wow* I am so enthusiastic about your lion picture!
