An Article in the Easy Reader

I'm really happy to share that I was recently interviewed during the Art Walk at the Hermosa Beach Community Garden.  I am pleased that I was able to share my art, and my passion projects with the community, and that the Easy Reader took notice of my efforts.

September 10, #30in30

Today I combined the idea of Plein-Air and Still-life. I was at the Harbor Art Fair all day, so took that time to paint a double canvas. A diptych, a few tall palm trees and an impression of the boats and masts of the sails.  How do you keep it loose and not too fussy?

Ideally I would use oils, but did this one in Acrylic...  I can't claim it to be finished yet, but it's good for today.

Still-Life Challenge

Garden Still-life 

Today's painting was a Still-life Challenge. Building on a collection of colors... reds, yellows, greens, and white.

September 7, 2016 #30in30 Day 7

There are some days when you are too tired or not in the mood to work... or perhaps you're just distracted or have other things going on.  Well, as a mom with three kids and tomorrow being the first day at three different schools, it's one of those.

But I committed to doing this challenge and know it's good for me to do something. I know I painted two on Monday, but I still want to focus on Still-life.

The result was a loose Watercolor Crayon and Aquapencil Sketch of books.
