My niece keeps me updated with pictures ( I won't bore you with ALL of them), but I am just enamored by this little guy WHO TURNED ONE MONTH OLD!
OK... just one more picture... my niece thinks he may be a "Professional Roller Coaster Rider" when he grows up...haha
What I left out of my blog post in Part 1 of my North Carolina adventure is that I was able to do a little art while I was there. One night I just rough sketched the picture and added some watercolor.
I kept it simple as I only took Copics, water colors and some alcohol inks.
Though I liked her, I realized her left shoulder was catawampus. It was driving me cRaZy and I couldn't figure out how to fix it with the limited supplies I had. Sometimes, the better paintings come from the worst mistakes. I fixed her once I got home.
I was also able to make some notecards with alcohol inks while I was there.
I would really like to experiment more with these inks on other substrates (the cards are inked on blank gloss notecards I got from a clearance sale online).
I began this next painting while in North Carolina, but this is as far as I got before I had to return to Florida.
When I got home, I contemplated for a few days trying to figure out the direction I wanted to go with her. Here is the progression.
|Listen To Your Heart, Your Angels Dwell There.|
Since I have been home, I have been busy with continued house remodel, working on studio classses and have tried to be more active in my art.
So, I guess that means there will be at least a Part 3 update and possibly a Part 4. Hopefully that will get us up to the current goings on. Stay tuned as I write furiously... haha
