Taking a break from workshops for a while, and spending more time on unfinished projects.
Like updating terms and conditions, half painted canvases, half sketched sketches, and all that time consuming mind numbing work involved with sitting at your computer uploading it all.
Geez…. no wonder I feel burnt out.. lol..
On the other hand I finally got my Redbubble setup so you’ll now be able to purchase more and more of my artwork on wearable, and usable merchandise! Yay!

Treasures at the river.Adventures, Blog, Creative Projects
Down at our favourite little river spot I’m always finding these beautiful deposits of minerals in all different colors.
Figured I would collect some today for crushing into pigments.
Most of them are already so crumbly it wouldn’t take much effort.
A bit of black, red, and yellow hues. All so natural and earthy.
Even found some gold flakes that probably aren’t gold, but they sure shimmer when you spread them out.
Might use them to for gold leaf highlights if I can get enough of it.
My mind is racing with ideas…
I wonder what I’ll end up making with it :)…
The things I do for my son.Blog, crafts, Creative Projects
With his recent fascination over these little buses, and the hefty price of a small set online I decided to give this a try..
Grabbed some toy blocks from his room, got my acrylic out, and got to work.
He already trashed a paper Tayo I made for him.. expected, but boy was he totally heartbroken.
Maybe this one will hold up better.
A bit of clear nail polish to make it waterproof, and hey! It’s Tayo!
Now to do the toddler test. Let’s see how long this one lasts.. lol..
I’m totally obsessed!Blog, Creative Projects
Just means, I love you – in dinosaur :P..
Haha.. I love these little guys. I could draw them so many ways and never get bored.
Here’s another one to add to the collection.
The first of a set, and it’s so cute!
As soon as it’s dry I’m going mixed media all over that watercolor.
Sea foam and salty air.Blog, Creative Projects, Online Events, Workshops
I miss the sea.
Doing this workshop today was a bit nostalgic as I blended away thinking of my time in Sinope, Turkey.
The Black Sea, and the local food. All the artisans that came to the docks every evening. I definitely miss it.
Sinope has my heart for sure.
It was nice to do something that brought those memories to mind.
Hosting workshops each week has been a lot of fun, and the finished works are always so pretty.
Gives my family a chance to head out without me, and a chance for me to zen in peace with a little art.
Next week zines! I think I may do something nautical to flow with this theme.
