I mentioned in a previous post that I was working locally with one of our hospitals on some creative workshops.
What I did not also mention is that I am also working with them to come up with some artwork which will be used to gift corporations who make donations to the hospital. So I thought it would be fun to show you some of the samples I have given to the hospital for their consideration.
I would love to know what your pick would be before I tell you the feedback I received on each of these!
Here they are in the order I submitted them to the hospital - we had several go arounds.
Oops and the last one I sent to them I forgot to take a picture of!! So I will show you that one once I get it back and then I will do another post and let you know what they picked!!
For this week's Video Vednesday I had something previously prepared but then I woke up as usual at 5:00 AM. I made myself a cup of coffee, sat at the kitchen table as I usually do - only this time, I had left my sketchbook and markers out on the table from the night before. Well that was all I needed. Away I went doodling like crazy.
About 30 minutes into it I thought - OMG I should tape this and share it on video Vednesday TODAY - and so I am. I taped up until where I stopped this morning and so there will be a part 2 when I get down to finishing it. I did of course speed this up (in some sections I sped it up by 4 and in other sections I sped it up 8x's the actual speed) otherwise the video would have been over 50 minutes long since that's home much time I spent on it this morning!
Okay so enough talk - enjoy!
My watercolor series class started today and we have a great gang of women wetting their brushes and digging right in. Come and join them - registration is always open - see all the details here.
Sometimes it feels like it is difficult to stay connected ...
As you know if you follow my blog this has been a year of major changes for me - divorce, new home, art full time. These are things that certainly should not be experienced ALL in the same year but, well, that`s just how it happened for me.
So now, the dust has settled, the boxes are done, the running around to get everything in place - it`s all done. And now, you know what happens - the reality sets in.
It`s as if I was avoiding the reality by keeping very very busy but now no more. I am faced with dealing with my new life as it is for all its good and bad.
Certainly there are days when I see clearly when I know it is ALL GOOD. But of course, dispersed in between those days are days when I go - WOW - what just happened.
And so that is where I am right now - trying to not think too much about what happened because it is what it is right.
I am feeling however a little lost these days and I think it is due in part to the new surroundings and new organization of all my art supplies. I just can`t seem to get it right and am having trouble getting down to work - I seem to be all over the place.
On the other hand, that is the time (sometimes) when I know my brain is actually working very hard in the background dreaming of new colors, techniques and ideas! At least I think that`s what is happening in the background.
So if you feel a little disconnected right now like me - let me know how you get yourself back on track. If you have felt disconnected with me on my blog lately (as I have) please let me know. I can use all your support and all your love these days!
Just a small PS. Don`t forget to sign up for my new watercolor series today. It is the last day to get each part of the series for only $25.00. Watercolor houses starts tomorrow the 17th of September. To find out more and to register you can head on over here.
