Creativity



I have just added a new badge to my blog for Jamie Riddler's Full Moon Dreamboards. For anyone who does not know her, Jamie is a creative coach and blogger who finds wonderful ways to motivate others. She helps others move things along in exciting, enriching ways. There are just not enough words to explain the positive energy that flows from her workshops, online activities and blog.

My painting is on it's way to Virginia. I finished it and delivered it at the end of last week.

Tomorrow night (Tuesday, 8/25/09) I am having a sale of some watercolor paintings. Christine at Feather's Wellness Studio decided to have a marketplace in the studio to raise money for the Jimmy Fund. This is the first time I will offer any of my paintings for sale. Hopefully, people will like them and buy them all.

Tide Pool

This is so exciting. I finished this collage painting, finally,
today.
It is to be a wedding gift for one of my former students
who was married a couple of weeks ago.
I really tried several different designs
before this one came to me.
It's a combination of several
ideas that I had.
It seemed to work the best for the shells
that I had painted.
Her Mom told me that they both love
anything to do with the ocean.
So I figured that a tide pool of shells
with a few additions
would work.
I'm going to try a dark colored mat for it
and a simple frame.
Ill take a picture of the completed
composition in a day or two.

Flying Away


I did this little painting the other day.
It took some time, but I enjoyed the effort.
Some time I'll do another one using negative space.

My husband and I are taking a short trip for a few days. I won't have access to my computer, but I'll check back in on Saturday. Take care and have a lovely week.
