#21daysinmyartworld prompt is motif/s. In resent times mine seem to be trees not just the foliage but the roots too. They are never intentional as I paint and draw what emerges from my paintings be it only one layer of watercolours or many layers of acrylics. I often wonder if Im being reminded of the tree of life. I quite like this reminder of the strength of the trunk, the flexibility of the branches and the leaves and most of all the importance or the strength of our roots. Symbolically, realistically or whimsically.

Eight months ago today my sweet little booger was born. Seven months ago I decided to paint to keep my sanity and sense of self. Six months ago I discovered artist @alliedattilio. Five months ago I joined her incredible venture with artist @suiteonestudio. Two months I started my first course with @thestudiosource, and the rest is absolute magic. It’s an ever growing process, but I am forever grateful for my little support system of artists that encourage and inspire me daily. ❤️ #whatajourney
Day 13 of the #21daysinmyartworld challenge is ‘process insight’ so with that in mind I took photos as I worked away at this piece. I was so inspired by a beautiful photo by @fabloomosity and used it as inspiration for this painting.. you’ll see it just a few posts back in my feed! I started by sketching out the succulents and then going over the lines with a @micronart black ink pen so I wouldn’t lose any of the details. Once I finished that, I painted in the background. Next step was to paint in the succulents and once that dried, I went over the whole thing again with black ink pens and a white gel pen by @sakuraofamerica to get some definition and highlights. That’s it! It doesn’t sound like a super lengthy process but this piece from start to finish took roughly 4-5 hours.. and it’s only a 5.5x8.5... I’m still new to watercolor so I take my sweet time and find it very meditative. To say it’s teaching me patience is a massive understatement! If you ever have any other questions about my process or materials, please don’t hesitate to ask, I love talking shop!!
I’be been so frustrated in the last week because the painting isn’t flowing for me and I keep covering up the new layers because they didn’t inspire me. That would have been a good time to walk away but common sense did not prevail and I kept pushing. It’s a pattern with me and yes I know it’s the definition of crazy. 🙄 Be honest...I can’t be the only one that stubborn. Two of my paintings on the wall kept catching my attention. The realization hit me that the painting I want to make is right here. I kept fighting against making another jellyfish painting. Another realization hit and it was I enjoy doing the underwater paintings and that’s how a series start! So I did what makes me happy...using my fingers and water to lay down the background. These are the paint covered hands that make me smile. And the other photos are of the paints reacting to each other after I sprayed them with water. So excited to keep working on this but for now I watch the paint dry. 🤣
Blank space = Possibilities 😍 . I found these 4x4’s and 6x6’s at Tacoma’s Artist & Craftsman Store, and I cant wait to throw some paint on them! These blocks found me just in time to be included in the debut of my Etsy shop, opening officially tomorrow! I’ll be using these birch wood blocks for custom orders because I live for the way pour paintings dry on wood 😍 I’m so excited for this next step with my art - just means sharing my art with you all will be so much easier! Don’t forget to favorite my shop on Etsy for updates, which will be monthly 😌 More news related to this is coming this weekend! Stay tuned ✨
𝐼𝓃𝓃𝑒𝓇 𝓇𝑒𝒻𝓁𝑒𝒸𝓉𝒾𝑜𝓃𝓈 • • • January has always been a difficult month for myself. Getting my taxes & write off’s in order, cleaning & purging my home like a mad woman and it always seems to be the slowest month for business. Not just as an artist, but as a Massage Therapist. It can be discouraging, but this too will pass. On a lighter note my wedding is in official count down! May will come in no time, so I have been putting a lot of my energy towards that. I have thrifted over 70 depression glass goblets and I am almost finished with the macrame back drop for the ceremony! Sending my handmade save the dates out any day now. 😊 AND my fiancé and I celebrate our SEVEN year anniversary this Friday. Life is good 🤗
Swipe for close-up & process video! Got all the Patreon stuff out and a portfolio up online so now I can just relax and paint fun things like another #drawthisinyourstyle because they are so fun + great practice for drawing people! This one is another #sarafaberchallenge because I love her so much 🙈 shh, don't tell her lol. I have about a million more of these bookmarked and gonna slowly make my way through them hehe 💛😊🌱
Day13 Process Insight #21daysinmyartworld You learn important lessons in the learning process. For example, I realized that I should not feel sorry when use a lot of paint. When you add more layers, picture becomes more interesting. It's like a lot of clothes, where each layer excites the imagination. I decided to play around with drawing a figure. A bit of graphics also does not hurt . . . Важные уроки ты выносишь именно в процессе обучения. Например, я поняла, что нельзя жалеть краску. Чем больше слоев, тем интереснее картина. Это как много одежды, где каждый слой волнует воображение. Решила поиграться с рисованием фигуры. Немного графики тоже не помешает
Day 13 of #21daysinmyartworld Process Insight: I'm just putting a corner detail of the painting in this shot because it's doing double duty for tomorrow's SOLD prompt. But because it was a commission I have a lot of pages of process, so it's a good example. The process is different for my realism paintings than for my abstracts. When I first get an idea for a realism painting, I immediately start scribbling words. I'll make a list of words of things that I “see” and make a quick messy (very messy) little thumbnail of the first image that pops into my mind. (About 2/3rds of what I scribble down will not make it into the painting). Then I spend time thinking about those words and researching them, which invariably leads to new interesting ideas or a dash of synchronicity. The project then starts to take on a larger, deeper meaning. I make more thumbnail sketches, figure out lighting, add more words, shoot or locate reference photos, and then when I'm ready to begin the painting process, I start it based on how I've decided in my mind it's going to look, while knowing full well that it's not going to stay that way. I'm going to have to get out of the way and let the painting decide how it's really going to look, as it progresses. The more I cling to an original idea the harder and less successful it usually ends up. The more I let it be what it wants to be, the better the end result. With the abstracts I don't start with an image or an idea in my mind. I just decide on a medium I want to use and set to making a mess. Then I begin layering over it, looking for spots to highlight, looking for things that have a vague resemblance to something else – a landscape, a map, a flower etc – and I try to pull those elements to the forefront. It's finding what's there rather than creating what's there. While the processes appear quite different at the start, once I'm in the middle of a project they're pretty much identical. I just go where I'm led. Sometimes
