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.

Thanks for following and supporting the blog. Join us on Periscope for #ArtistMotivationalMonday 11am PST.

SKETCHBOOK DRAWINGS WITH PEN – CROSS HATCHING

One of the best times to take your sketchbook with you is when you know you will be waiting for a period of time.   Here are some of my idle time drawings where I did some “Cross Hatching Drawings” with pens.   It really helps the time go by quickly.   These are with the Micron 02 and 05 pens.   You can view more of our works at http://chinue.imagekind.com/Smallartseries,  thanks for following.

Capture Nature

I  heard these birds in a tree and they were really loud and intense.   I was a good distance from them but was able to zoom in very well to capture this photo of them there is something about nature that always makes us know life is good no matter what is going on.

I really like how I was able to capture the red on the plant in detail.  I recently joined a photography group so I can do more photography this summer.

Let me know what you think about the pictures.  You can view our artwork at  http://chinue.imagekind.com/Landscapes……be sure to follow us, like us and leave comments.

The Festivals Have Begun Part 2 – Chalk Art Festival and Classic Cars Show

We spent the day at the Chalk Art Festival and Classic Car Show in Pasadena, Ca (Father’s Day 2015)  I was my first time attending this festival so I was excited and amazed at all the amazing artist that were there creating and sharing their unique style of art. Art comes  in many forms, mediums and creations and I do not think we will ever get to see all of them in one life time.  It was a nice warm day,  people came from near and far for this yearly event. Feel free to leave comments, like our page and please follow us this summer for more festivals………….

Sketchbook drawings and paintings- watercolor & pen Studies

Watercolor and Pen 6 X 8
Watercolor and Pen
6 X 8

Watercolor and pen a unique pair.  The pen gives you the structure and lines but the watercolor allows you to paint outside of all the lines giving you a new type of freedom.

You don’t have to paint inside the lines, you don’t have to be locked into a box of shapes you can just paint.

Watercolor gives you a freedom. It bleeds into another color you can mix and match and take your mistakes as something meaningful. Watercolor forgives, it just makes something new.

This painting is small  6 X 8.  The colors are red, green, blue, blue-green, purple, yellow, brown, white.  This is the first painting as part of my journal drawings and paintings.  These will mainly be done in my sketchbook.
