Colors

Bold colors, bright colors, I love them all. This was on the clearance shelf at Walmart and I couldn’t pass it up. It looked like a quilt, it had great colors and geometric pattern.

A letter I painted for the word Artist. The red and the geometric pattern again.

A color wheel I had made in art class. I blended these colors from the primary colors. We were to make an interesting color wheel.

All my watercolor paints so I can see their true colors instead of from the outside of the tube. This was so much fun to make.

Just a bit of my painting Serenity. All the bold colors make me smile.

Here is a piece of my painting Teal and Blue. I love the teal flowers with the red middles. I think the reds look like cherries. I especially like the bit of white to set it off.

Same painting only the yellow flowers with the textured petals beside the blue and orange vase. So bold and happy.

This little bluejay is also one of my favorites with the multi-colored wing and the crown. Just a fun bird carrying a sunflower seed. It comes from my painting Happy Birds.

Prints can be found of these pictures in my Etsy Shop.
From the book The Best Loved Poems of the American People,  here is one of my favorites.
Try Smiling
When the weather suites you not,
Try smiling.
When your coffee isn’t hot,
Try smiling.
When your neighbors don’t do right,
Or your relatives all fight,
Sure ’tis hard, but then you might
Try smiling.
Doesn’t change the things, of course–Just smiling,
But it cannot make them worse– Just smiling.
And it seems to help your case,
Brightens up a gloomy place,
Then, it sort o’ rest your face– Just smiling.
–Unknown-
May you have a colorful day!

Work

I am starting a new series of mixed media hearts. This canvas is 18 X 18. I started out with a salmon color which I mixed by adding orange and magenta. I wiped on titaniam white and watered down the salmon a bit for drips coming from the top. Other colors I am thinking about using are deep red, olive green, light sage green, possibly some black.

Custom letter blocks for a little girls name. I will need four more blocks.

Moxing bowls and the water bucket is a staple. I also am working on a black, red and white picture and when it gets finished I will share. It wasn’t far enough along to be interesting. So glad you stopped. Hope you are making something that makes your heart sing.!
