Coloring Canvas

#coloring #ArtistLife #canvas #JohannaBasford

Went to the art store and found this awesome canvas that you use coloring markers on instead of paints. The markers come in a variety of colors Nature, Basic and Ocean.

The markers dry quickly and odorless. This is just another way to create on your artist journey. For anyone who has had the thought about art this is a great way to start.

Thanks to everyone who has been apart of the 2016 journey. Looking forward to another year of art. Thanks for supporting my blog.

Last week was the Lavender Festival 2016. It always amazes me all you can do with lavender.
We experienced the taste of lavender ice cream with fresh honey from the bees on the 123farm. There was also lavender wine, beer, and champagne, brisket with lavender sauce. We took a walk through the lavender fields amazed at the beauty of them.
It was a great day.

Fruit Series-Cont

Still working on the Fruit Series,  so here we are with “Spatter of
Grapes”.  This is 9x 12 Oil on Canvas.  We are using samples of oil paints we received from Winsor and Newton.  The paint is the riches purple they could have created in my opinion. Then I took the brush and just splattered the paint for the background.

A Day With Sheep

Loving the day spent with a lot of sheep at the Sheep Shearing Event.  Learned a lot about the process of shearing, washing the wool, drying it out, dyeing it  and spinning the wool.  We made a friend of one of the sheep who kept coming back to where we were every time he went away to join the others.  The animal kingdom is really amazing.

Here are the sheep after they have been sheared of their wool, it was about 80 degrees today so I know they feel so much better.  These would come right up to you so you could pet and feed them.  As you can see they were not camera-shy at all.

Feeling Stuck, Asking Yourself Whats Next

Many times as artist we get to the place where we feel stuck and it is at that place of being stuck you start to question whether or not you should even be doing this thing called art as a career or a hobby.

Its doing these lean times of temporary despair that we have to step back and reevaluate what we are doing.  Being an artist is not an easy path because it is a creative journey you are on instead of a career path.

Yes you want to make money at this but the real reason you are doing it is for the creative energy it gives you.  Your doing it for the love of being able to be creative and also make a profit from it.

There are a lot of artist of all kinds, the arena is full of creative souls trying to find where they fit into this arena of creative oceans. You paint, draw, take photography, create computer art, performance art, and yet you still wonder where you fit into this ocean of art.

The only thing I can tell you is to keep creating and you will find your place.  Remember your art is the journey of your soul as it keeps expanding to greater heights alone the way.
