Settling In

A long time again since a post but my creativity has been focused on designing and sewing.   I did  stop in at Opus  Art Supplies to grab some canvas supplies for an idea  I have for children's bedroom decor.  The brush and wonderful smell of paint should be permeating  the premises soon.  Adding an old painting as I just find a post without art is boring.

Kelowna Bound

I should have mentioned it was Kelowna I was heading to.  I will be an aspiring old artist there now.  Looking forward to wine valley and orchard scapes with beaches and more. 

Kelowna Bound

I haven't posted again for months.  Busy planning and making a big move.   Last two days in Edmonton now, all packed up, heading out Wednesday morning.  Hopefully will once again get those paint brushes out and finally start painting again.  It's been a long 6 months since.   It's time and I am ready.

Painted up the front windows with the elf theme.  It was a good day

Back again

  • I've finished one painting which I will post as soon as I can scan or photo it and post.  I've also started 2 new paintings all in oil (which I haven't gotten into for a very long time).  It feels good to be back painting.  I miss my biggest fan but still, I'm doing it again.  It's all good.  I will post again soon.  Oils take a long time to dry.  But it is so worth the extra patience required.

Commitment and note to self

Start painting again.  I have to try something I haven't done in a while to get myself to start painting again.  I've joined a drop in work shop starting this coming Saturday.  I'm starting to feel excited about going and meeting other artists and picking up the brush that will hit a canvas.  It's not that I haven't touched a paint brush at all.  I painted my dining room and kitchen.  Does that count?  No murals, just painted walls.  It still felt really good to smear that paint on.  It's part of the whole experience.  Watch the paint hit the surface and change it.  Yeah!!!

October all ready

It's already October.  The spring and summer went by quickly.  I didn't participate in any art related activities since last fall now.  I haven't been able to get my head into it.  Still trying to find myself first.  Hoping to get inspiration and start all over again in 2011.
