february is the month of valentine day, right?

well, yes!  and it is also the month to celebrate

marie antoinette.  i am a part of three women team who

creates wonderful and unexpected treats for the paletteers

 a palos verdes art center art group.  we have taken it upon

ourselves to take this job to a whole new level!  this is our

last hurrah after participating for a year.  i thought i'd show you

a few pictures of our marie antoinette tea party.  of course, my

painted tea bags needed to be on display!

and a few other creations this week.

my first paper clay sculpture.  i think she's scary.

a collaged repurposed tea box to hold notes of happy moments during a day

portrait, watercolor, acrylic, collage

have a wonderful and creative week!  thanks so much for visiting today.
i try to post once a week on friday.  as you can see, today i made it on sunday.
i love your comments and sharing.

hello!  this is a short post, as i have been

playing hookey this week.  actually, i worked

hard at a three day workshop hosted by lisa heaney,

with john arbuckle teaching a million and one  techniques!

i will show results on the next post.  doing all of that 

work requires lots of rest!  

a previous mixed media journal page

me and picasso

daily redondo walk view of which i never tire!

i hope you have fun plans for the weekend.   i wish i could

say i am going to rest up but,  no such luck this week!

hello and welcome1

today i am posting my daily face and figurative 

drawings in various mediums and substrate

ink and watercolor on vintage dictionary paper

acrylic painting on dictionary paper, 

after a marc chagall painting

ink sketch with watercolor added from my 

daily journal

i wanted to create something larger.

this started with a drawing from a photo

reference.  acrylic and collage was added. 

i also wanted to share these are bean bags 

that i made almost 40 years ago for a friend's 

daughter who was 9 at the time.  we remain

 the closest of friends.  i was touched when 

she shared that she still has freddy and frederica.  

january is the time of spectacular sunsets in 

my neck of the woods.  

thank you for visiting.  if you have the time to visit,
i am linking my post with paint party friday,
a weekly community of artists hosted by
kristen and eva for over five years.
