it is the sparkly time of year.
christmas music surrounds us
and spirits soar. this can feel like pressure
for many whose lives are filled with obligations
and burdens. here in southern california, even when driving
on the streets you can feel the change in the air. tempers are
short, people are in a hurry, horns are honking.
yesterday i saw this card at a local trader joes and
use it as a daily mantra.
here are a few of this week's
i keep these tiny teabag art pieces in an antique
leptons tea tin. this week i brought some out to
have a little tea party. i love the variety of styles and colors
that can be seen when they are together that i don't seewhen
i do my daily painting.
a fabric pendant painted on hand painted fabric for a gift exchange.
i took a one day figurative workshop.
it was so hard and there is so much to learn!
here is the first drawing with some
acrylic paint from a live model.
this class made me realize how important it is
to practice drawing so i began to sketch
while i watched the borgias. the scenes
change quickly so you don't have much time
to jot down the basic shapes.
and of course my daily walks
on the redondo beach esplanade.
a view that can only be seen in southern california
in december! vw wagon, palm trees and the sun!
happy paint party friday and
than you for visiting this week.
wishing you peace and peace
