As I think I recently mentioned that I had purchased this book because I was quite taken with her paintings. It is just a beautiful book that has so many elements in it. Fantastic flower images, great quotes, the basics of tools, elements, colors and inspiration. Then it also talks about yourself and creativity and nurturing this. It not only has inspiration from Carrie but other artists also. It can be found on Amazon of course, but I bought it from North Light Shop. I offers a lot of information for creative souls.
I had purchased some more pastel acrylic colors by Liquitex recently and decided to put them to the canvas on this painting. Then I stenciled the sun with embossing paste tinted with paint.
Here is is all finished and scanned in. What a difference scanning makes with the clarity and color! I also added my beloved poppies and purple asters. I didn’t want the word to take away from the flowers so I made it very quiet like the word but still getting the point across.
My moonbeam coreopsis
and the balloon flower. I had so much fun with this painting!
Newsy stuff….. I had submitted this painting “Happy Birds” to The Brave Girls Club because they are always calling for art with birds. This is for a daily feature sent out by email called “A little Bird Told Me”. Then they choose a feature that day. Mine was chosen for Wednesday and that was such a good feeling. I felt very honored! Have a fantastic weekend….and as always….Thanks for stopping.
