            I love these mini peppers! They are good to eat as well as to paint. Oil on  8X8

Alcohol Inks

Working with alcohol inks.
They sure have a mind of their own, but I will persevere!

I LOVE collage! You never know exactly what will happen! This is 12X12 on wood, which I find easier to use for collage. Some vintage music sheets, tissue, deli papers, paint etc.

A rainy day project

A  neighbor brought over a jar of little rose buds from her bushes. I put them in my Ball jar and got out the oil paints. I felt like I was on a time line because these little roses open quickly. They were pretty colors of red, coral, and pink. There is always more that can be done, 
but for now, I think it is finished.

Coloring Mandalas

Did you ever dream that you had a whole book of Mandalas to color? This little book illustrated by Wendy Piersall is just that. Wonderful images, some a bit ethereal, are ready for your copic pens, or colored pencils. The designs are well detailed, however still have ample room to make your mark. It is published by Ulysses Press, and was sent to me for review. The perfect way to spend some quiet time when things get hectic.

This journal page says it all. I want to be a "glow getter"; how about you?

This spider web can be a place where I get tangled up and stuck, or it can become a beautiful tapestry in life. I see lines of connections, reaching out to explore new beginnings, new possibilities. These lines show energy, power, accomplishment, and rhythm.The spider brings the world into being through her delicate, rhythmic weaving. What am I weaving this year? This is an exercise from the book: The Mandala Workbook, A creative guide for self-exploration, balance, and well being, by Susanne F. Fincher. You can see more at 100

Something to think about

And what is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.

Light My Fire!

All I have to do is look at my art supplies and I feel the flame getting hot!
I will color this one with my Inktense pencils.

The Rest of the Story

I fell in love with this image, and really the whole idea, of Mary, " the undoer of knots." This is such a cool thought to know that whenever we have a knot that is just too tight, there is someone who can do the job.This thought went so well with my journal page from yesterday, I had to make it my second page.

#30 Day Journal Project

January is a good time to commit to something new. I love to journal, so I will be trying to keep up with this challenge. I have been wanting to use this little lady who seems to be all tied up around her feet. Time to untie!
