hello again…well, what a week.. busy at work, home and just plain ole life. don’t you just love fridays? haven’t been up in my studio lately. i guess i needed a break. but now its time to change that. my next goal is to finish some online classes that i started and have not finished. and hello? thank goodness for online classes. have any of you tried them? they are sprouting up all over the place now. for me, it started with Joggles offering on line workshops. then artists like Paulette Insall, SuziBlu, Wyanne and Altered Diva offering mixed media classes also. there are others. i definitely challenged myself.. but how else will we learn? years ago all i did was polymer clay pieces and now i have evolved into this mixed media artist still using the clay in my work like the vintage buttons you see above in my blog header. i have and am learning so much and have done things i thought i’d never do like draw, paint, wax (my art that is, not my legs.. ouchie). it’s fun and you know what.. i am pleased with my pieces. below is the final mixed media paintings from SuziBlu’s “Les Petite Dolls” workshop. it’s created on birch wood… i just love creating backgrounds; no rules, no pressures, just fun.. take a look… i did this.. yes, me.. who knew? enjoy your weekend and do something creARTive!
this one above was a test before i did the bigger one on top
