Twinks



Last week I decided to try Twinkling H2Os, a product that I have admired for quite a while. 
I had hesitated to order any, because of the wait and shipping costs. Well, I'm so glad that I have moved past that stumbling block. Soon, a new workshop starts at LuminArt for Silks Acrylic Glaze, taught by Dion Dior. Both Silks and Twinkling H2Os have intense colors and added mica along with other minerals. 
This whole experience has become a stimulus for my latest creative block. That is an exciting and uplifting development.
I hope to reorganize my blog soon. I really don't want to start over on a new blog, but I have to so something to make this process work better.

Inspiration Avenue Challenge

Inspiration Avenue's challenge this week has been Fairies. I decided to join in, because I figured - "Here's something I can do." After some agonizing days with no results, finally, today I was able to complete a painting using watercolors. It was frustrating to have nothing to show all week for my efforts. I'm so glad that this little one emerged from my brush.
She's inspired by a bookmark I have from the Boston Ballet advertising Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream.
