Hi Lovies.. I hope your week has been good to you! I have been fortunate to be able to do some work in the studio this week. First let me show you a print that is in the shop
You can get it here. Hopefully you are uplifted by the message! It is meant to be!
So I was saying, I have been busy in the studio this week. It is always a good thing! I had a class of lovely ladies for a birthday on Tues. and we had so much fun!
Plus I got some work done on my art association entries. I finished the first one and am on to the second. I’m hesitant to show you the first one.. not sure if it is my best work. But I promise to shortly and you can judge for yourself. Here are some glimpses of the second one, when finished it will probably go into my series of flowers. Here are the flowers all drawn out on watercolor papers and ready for paint.
And here is the color scheme and the original photo that I recreating in paint.
I have also been playing with carving my own stamp.. I love this process.. it feels rewarding and I love the texture and movement of carving. These are some of the first stamps I ever carved way back.
And then I tried to carve words. I never have had a knack for mirror images so I totally messed this up but I love it.. Shows I can be flawed. My kids barley read my blog so I can type this out loud without to much concern ;-)
This is what I am carving right now. Cute isn’t he? I’m hoping to use him in a little tag project :-)
So that is some of my week.. I’m off to an appointment and then dinner with friends and to watch the Hawks. Oh seriously though, I barley watch.. I’ll do0m them if I do and I get distracted so easily during the game! Last preseason though, right? Go Hawks!
OH! I almost forgot to mention sweet Sophie! It is her 19 birthday and she is like family so I don’t want to miss a moment to publically remind her of how much we love her.. Happy birthday girley!
