Story Telling: What Happen Yesterday

Yesterday I woke up feeling OK but as the day progressed I came to realize how we as humans are programmed and mentally conditioned for these holidays. Even if you chose not to be involved there will always be someone who will wish you a “Happy” what ever the holiday is.

Why does everyone assume you spent time with family or friends. Why do they assume you attended a church service.

These holidays are man made and the only profit is retail sales with people feeling guilty so they buy gifts.

So as I asked the question “What happen yesterday” I respond with nothing happen it was just another day.

In The Studio:Watercolor Sketchbook Painting

Our November challenge is going to be working with #watercolor for the month.  One painting either in our #sketchbook or #watercolor pad. 

So here is Day 1 Mystery Lady which was a drawing I’m doing in ink as well as watercolor.

Since I’m practicing my face drawings this is the perfect project.

Eenjoy the process, the world is waiting for your art……

Inktober 2017 Day 12 Shattered

A broken heart can be #shattered. Today we are on Day 12 of the challenge.

This challenge keeps me focused and drawing everyday to improve my line drawings.

Inktober2017 Day 4 Underwater

I’m getting the hang of this, we are on day 4 which is Underwater.  Sometimes the day to day issues can make you feel you are Underwater but always know things that you see are subject to change.

Collage, Oils and Pastels = A New Creation of Art

I started playing with some of my old pieces by blending them with some new software I have.  I remember doing this once before with my watercolors where I took some watercolor paintings and reworked them in Illustrator which made some beautiful digital art.

The top one is a Collage 18 X 24 , I used pastels, cut out some pictures from magazines and then scanned this into my software to make this beautiful new piece of Man’s Confusion.

The bottom piece is a piece I had done for the Small Art Series Gallery, The Bell Peppers are  8 X 10  Oil on Canvas, scanned into the computer to make this collage type Digital Art piece.
I really like the way they both turned out and it goes to show you can re-create any piece of art making it tell a different story.

Let me know what you think about these two creations……..be sure to follow us, like our page and leave comments (we really do read them)

Artist Trading Cards

My new project is the Artist Trading Cards.   Each one of these small pieces is 2.5 X 3.5 .  I bought the Canvas Paper for oils but they also have the ones for Pastels, Charcoal, and Water Color.  You get about 10 cards per pack and since they are already treated you can just paint, glue, stamp or whatever you want.  I have seen some very creative cards online.

I love to paint small as you know by my Small Art Series Paintings which start at 8 X 10 but I must admit painting on this small-scale 2.5 X 3.5  is really a challenge.   It will be interesting to see where this leads me.

Let me know your thoughts about these trading cards and take a visit to my gallery for other pieces  http://chinue.imagekind.com/Smallartseries

The Festivals Have Begun Part 3- Lemon Lily Festival

One of the most beautiful things about a road trip some where is the scenery you see along the way.   We went to the Lemon Lily Festival this weekend in Idylwild, California at an Environmental Conservation  The Lemon Lily is like many of our animals, it is a threatened native Lily.  This place is doing everything to educate the public about this beautiful plant.

Don’t depend on your GPS  for directions all the time because sometimes it will take you the back roads to a location.  We were at about 4,000 feet in these photos and still had about an hour left before we arrived.

One thing about being this elevation you can see the whole city beneath you.   It was a good day all in all.  Since I am not fond of heights  I’m not getting too close to the edge to take a photo.
