I have been trying to
find the right silhouette
for my Hula Girl! It is driving
me a little insane. I get way to
detail oriented, I really want
it much more?? abstract? loose?
not really cartoony but...

To everyone
who has lost someone to Cancer
May your life be
for having had that person
in your life.
May your memories fill the hole when you most need it to.
Rest in Peace Audrey,
you are Loved

I am creating and teaching a new class.
It is called Visual Journaling.
It will be taught in the fall at Los Gatos Recreation, I am talking to the JCC about organizing a class for them and of course I teach at my home studio.
This class will incorporate multiple techniques that could be used in your Visual Journal. You can incorporate this into travel, group activities, creative cook book, Art, personal journaling, class notes, or meetings, vision boarding, writing brain storming, project planning or any special projects we can come up with.
I look forward to seeing all the creative things my artist come up with, come and join.

Problems Painting.?

This is from my daily drawing book I get some paint on them, lots of days its just doodles.

But these are my students paintings, which I have a "HEAVY" hand in. If I can come up with ideas, draw them and chose the paint and brushes, why am I not painting for myself.??
I have a theory. I think my creative juices get used up. Or Im just lazy... which is probably the right answer. Hope this wave turns out for the kid. : ) Hang 10 Dude.

I am a collector of quotes. All you have to do is check out Inside Art Dog Studio and see my inspiration board. I came across a couple of good ones that mad me stop and think...

“An Artist is never ahead of his time,

but, most people are far behind theirs.”

Edgar Varese

“Practice makes Permanent”

“Art is acquired, Science is learned”

Interpret as you will... Im still thinking about them!.

Send me any good quotes you might know or like.

It is always so cool to see my art in the new owners home. This ABC was done especially for this new baby. (I know her mama) :) I hope she has many fun years looking at the painting!
