pre & post {wet technique}


working on a painting and had gotten to a point where i felt like i had too much paint on the canvas and wondered what would happen if i used alcohol to pool and move whatever was on top.

watch my short video below. (find me on youtube); felt like i may have just ruined all that work.....


but, in the end- i love what i ended up with. sometimes you have to take that big step to find the love. i liked the early stage, but, i certainly didn't love it.....big steps=love.

don't love too early.


the words written into the paint say, "the plan is not always ours to understand."

truth.

happy wednesday.

collage {and pencil on paper}


layered collage on watercolor paper and then added pencil. 

(i had an overwhelming feeling that i needed to add the pencil- it was just all too neat.)

loving the colors on this one- a few easter pastels spilling onto the paper.

and below are a couple of samples. line drawing in pen and pencil with watercolor.


happy wednesday.

teaching {class}


just love this photo of our group! 

this past saturday i taught a faces class at Mosaic Studio. the space is so wonderful! if you are looking for a teaching space- send a message and book it! it is a perfect spot! not up for teaching? looking at the other classes that are being hosted there.

my students worked soooo hard! stretching outside of their comfort zone and loosening up! 


feeling so blessed to have taught this fantastic group of ladies!

thank you for saturday!
