I am addicted to art supplies and although it is wonderful to have all this stuff around, I get a little overwhelmed so I am going to try to reduce my palette and amount of supplies I use so that I can really get to know them. It will be very hard to do, but this thought keeps going through my head to simplify....at least for now.
Here are some examples of my love affair with R&F Oil bars. I did get carried away and bought alot of them because they are very seductive so hopefully this will be my last product for awhile.
And last but not least, I just finished a wonderful magical weekend at a Misty Mawn workshop. She inspired me 4 years ago to paint. I started taking her online classes and haven't stopped painting.Meeting her in person was such a wonderful gift. I had so many epiphanies this weekend such as painted with a limited palette, even the background pulls the painting together,marks all pencil is magical, purchasing jars of paints rather than tubes (paint doesn't dry up as fast) and so many more Misty secrets you can only discover if you take her class. Watching her paint is quite magical. It is so tempting to try to copy Misty but then you aren't on your own journey, so that is never an option for me...but to take some of her magical experience and incorporate it is the whole idea. Misty is a huge role model for me. Her integrity and originality is unquestionable and she is a fun gal to be around too! Here are some of the wip that I did in the class.
Oh, I forgot, my door at Random Arts is finished. Love the beautiful knob Jane added to it.
