Life book 2014 I have enjoyed some of the different artist renditions of what we are doing this week. Here is my take on one. The artist who inspired this loves to do whimsical and I can see why. I am loving it too. I certainly did not come up with this out of my own head so I do not take credit for this. It certainly does not look at all like the pics the artist Lynn Colwell had done you have to check out her work she is doing a seris of whimsical art. Really cool stuff. 

 Notice the mice and lady bug. hehehe


These are my blob drawing. Watered paint blobs and what I saw in them.

Alright I am trying to get my blog going on weebly and it is confusing me so much. I can't keep adding to both so I might have to drop the weebly site because I just don't understand how it works.

Lots don't like this blogger but so far it's been working for me.

So my post for today it that something is in the works and I will let you know what it is when the plan is in place. Yes, it has to do with education.
This is a pretty boring post but I was told you have to get into the habit of posting every week or every day so that you get into a habit. So soon to share again. ta ta for now. m

pictures uploaded vds next

 line drawings trick is to not pick up your pen. very tough but interesting.

oh boy finally got pictures uploaded. Now i want to be  able to upload a video. i know how to post to you tube but the real trick  is editing. I'm really wanting to get better at this but i can see you have to try and actually make mistakes to learn it. such fun. No one likes making mistakes. I'm in there with that and there are a lot of people scared to post their work because it didn't meet their inner critic. That certainly has to be difficult. I accept my shortcomings as an artist. I'm a newborn in this realm. So I appreciate critics, because I know an accept who I am in this process.

I wonder if as I get better if I will become more critical of myself?

January blahs...

Ok so I am on a journey with my Art. Well, I call it art it's better than the jewelry although lots of people liked my jewelry I found it was lacking. It didn't meet my expectations and I wasn't happy with the outcomes of some of my pieces. I was lucky to get a scholarship to to Life book 2014 if you have no idea what that is go to Tamara Laporte's site I hope you enjoy her work as musch as I do. She is not only an amazing artist she has this way of making you feel so appreciated and honored. I am so very happy I have this opportunity to do this.

Each week we have some kind of art exploration that pushes our boundaries, at least mine, and makes you create some thing you never dreamed you could. I will try to post my first several items here. I have them on facebook we shall see if I can manage the whole blog process.

Speaking of process so  many of the participants are very critical of their work and I realize that is probably my problem too. However, they have some awesome, amazing art and I love what they have done. So sorry it's a private group and I can't share their work. So if you have every wanted to expand your inner artist and see what you CAN do go to Tamara's site and check out her blog. She does give you some free lessons too so you might like to join us. Oh I forgot there are different artists teaching every week so you get to try things you never did but you may find a technique you love, love, love.. I can't get past my inner guardian art muse and I keep sketching and playing that I haven't completed week 4. oh well.

Gee I was blah but as I was writing about the art I suddenly got all inspired to some more. I think I shall.

This is from week 1 my inner guardian art muse and my word is to attend meaning I will be present in the moment and not let myself get side tracked. If I promise to be I will.
