Before I show you my latest digital you may or may not have noticed I changed the look of my art blog. I just had to...the other one made my blog feel dull and disconnected to who I am...(does that make sense?) I like colors to jump out and pop so I figured with a white background and coloring in everything else and the colors of my art would make it more interesting and appealing. Let me know what you think...I am always up to suggestions.
Today was a GREAT day because my daughter and husband did the grocery shopping (as usual) but the best part is my daughter brought home a new art journal for me to start and several
blank flat canvases of different sizes and acrylic paints. WOW...I am really excited.
Of course my head just started going crazy about ideas...she also bought us some composition notebooks...she said we could decorate them and make them journals for others. (you gotta love the kid)
So now I have a bit more to be creative with....

I believe the flower is called red trillian...but I am not sure...someone in a group I belong to
send the photo to the group and this is what I did...painted it digitally.
It reminds me of Christmas...
Thanks for Looking!

Here is a rose I painted digitally from of course another photo that someone sent me.
I like the neutral tones and the softness...I know it can be better...
but since this is just a way of me keeping my head busy and feeling creative...I love it!
Thanks for looking!

I thought I had already uploaded this one to this blog--but I guess I missed it.
This is a page I did of my daughter sort of "buried" under a few of our dogs when she
tried to lay down in my recliner and take a nap...of course the dogs did not want her to be
lonely so they joined her...
Just too cute!!!
Thanks for Looking!

Well I noticed in my blog hopping this past week that a lot of peeps have badges for
their blogs/websites..that people can save to their computer and use on their pages.
So I thought I would make my own blog badge...I like the way it came out...
The black background made the colors pop...I tried transparent and white and the colors
and wording get I guess a black background it is.
This is 150x150....I thought the size was ok...any smaller and things get too blurry..
well thanks for looking...let me know what you think!

The above image refers to a project called "Be Brave Project"
It is to do something that scares you...I really do not think I could do the project
justice by trying to explain it I invite you to go to the site by clicking on the graphic
and checking it out for yourself.
I think it is an awesome concept and I will let you know what I did to be Brave!


I have come across (after much blog hopping) several GREAT blogs, web sites, craft stores that
have really encouraged me to take my art to the next level...they have pushed those creative
ideas to the forefront...ideas are just swirling around in my head...
A great place that I have discovered - at least as a base to meet up with, other creative minds
is the Create A Connection..
I have been playing around with digital painting because it was new to me....I love digital
scrapbooking because I love saving those moments in pictures and words...
but I have always been drawn to altered arts, collages, a free feeling creative outlet that has
always been deep inside me...
Now that the weather has cooled down...I can finally get my craft room back in order and get
back to my passion.
Anyway--I encourage you to click on the above graphic and check out the the site - on the left side is a whole list of other artists in their own right that you will surely find inspiration and ideas from.
You just never know what may spark your muse!

The above poster is a digital painting I did from a photo and then put it in
a poster form (like the kind you find in the stores) I softened the look of the flower because
it had a lot of hard lines...I like the look of the colors against the black background.

The above poster is also a digital painting I did and put it in poster
form...the black background makes the colors pop.
Thanks For Looking!
