Daily Art Update

I’ve continued working on my daily art practice. Whether I get up early and do something¬† before work or I touch base with my practice before I go to bed I have tried to do something everyday. It is difficult to drag myself out of my comfy bed at 5 am but I really like […]

Painting Faces close up

A Month of Painting 2

Since the beginning of January iI have been painting daily. I get up at 5am from Monday to Friday and paint for half an hour to 45 minutes depending on how it is going. This week has been the only time that I have just had to say “nope, not today” Being sick this week […]

Painting Faces

My morning art pages for the last part of this week focused on painting portraits. I simply went through some magazines and pulled faces that intrigued me and put them in a pile. Wednesday’s face Close up. Thursday’s Face. Close up. Friday’s Face Close up. I think that I will continue this theme for at […]

Painting a Conversation

Over the weekend I bought a book by Emily Ball called Drawing And Painting People: A Fresh Approach and I have found it to be facinating and inspiring. It is not a technique book. You won’t find how to paint the perfect face and there are no step by steps of “How to Paint…” but […]

Easy Art Backgrounds

I’ve fallen into a fairly consistent rhythm of making art over the last several weeks. My alarm goes off at 5:15 and I am up and making something in my studio for the next 45 minutes. After that I can continue getting ready for my day and get the dogs feed and organized. I did […]

How to make your own stickers 2

As I was working on my Documented Life Project page for this week things kept going wrong. Specifically I didn’t like this side. But overall it was a bit of a hot mess. Not really what I was going for. So I decided that I would make my own stickers using my Xyron Sticker Maker. […]

Daily Art Update

I managed to continue my daily art in the morning. It is a little more difficult getting up in the morning if you don’t go to bed at a reasonable hour. Next week I will have to keep on top of that Sometimes a morning page really doesn’t go in a good direction and I […]



Creativity Journal 3

Every week I complete a page in my Creativity Journal that I am making along with the Ladies from Art to the 5th and the Documented Life Project. Every week we get a prompt or technique to inspire our page. This week I decided to continue with my “possibilities” theme and found a lovely poem […]

Morning Inspiration Week 1

Every morning this week my alarm clock went at 5:15 am and I dragged myself out of bed and made some art for a half an hour. By Friday my thought when the alarm click went was “Good” The idea is that I am too tired at the end of the day to go down […]

Creating an Art Habit 1

My goal is to make creativity a habit. To be able to easily and simply slip into the state of creativity without “the worries” sitting on my shoulder. I don’t worry about making the art-the technical aspects of being an artist. I find that very comfortable. I wonder what I am going to do with […]
