*** I have oh so many projects started in my art studio. I have been trying to find a comfortable art place to get nuzzled in and just disappear into my bliss. On this quest I have started a lot of projects. I say started, not finished. I’ve broken my own rule. It usually happens when I am waiting for something to dry. If I could learn to meditate or dance or something while I wait, I could do one project at a time but once I get in the zone… I cannot stop. So my goal is to finish as many of those projects as I can in April. Here are a few of them.
***I am still looking for space to set up shop here in Carlsbad NM, so that I can teach mixed media classes, art parties and workshops. For those things it is just to labor intensive to haul that many supplies from place to place. However, I will be ready by the end of April to do Art Parties for Kids, Paint and Sips, Coffee and Canvas, and Events at a venue of your choice or in your home. I may do some children’s art Classes this summer in my home or at the rec center at discount prices. I should have the details of the classes and parties up on my site in a couple of weeks. And Finally, I will try to have the show schedule for the next six months, if you are interested in purchasing my art.
*** I will still be working on the Illustrated Girls series until it is finished. Video 5 is up next. ” Prayer and Praise”. Its almost Easter after all. I’m rather excited about this one. Not only do I love the illustration, I am excited to work with acrylics on this painting. I will be working on that one today Here is the sketch of the next installment of the Illustrated girl series.
*** The Last thing that I would like to introduce is Techniques and Tricks. I am going to be doing a series of shorty videos, so I can share some of my techniques with you as they happen. Here is the first one on using repositional sticker paper to create masks in your artwork. Also here I am working with my Scanncut. I bought it so that I could make stencils of my original art for art classes for my students. I used it on this project to create masks out of my own handwriting, which was cool, and of some feathers.
