Went to the Art Walk in Redlands, Calif. Met a lot of. wonderful artist who do awesome work.
While cleaning my studio I found a canvas that had not been used. I wanted to do a collage type of project using oils so I started applying the collage part.
Since I was up early this morning with my sick dog who had tummy issues I did a sketch in my sketchbook.
Now I’m transferring that sketchbook drawing onto canvas.
Its kind of abstract don’t you think.
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.
There are times when change is necessary in order to continue on your life purpose journey. There are times when we all come to that fork in the road where a decision must be made to change directions, reset and continue moving forward.
When this type of reset happens, there are people who you will leave behind because they have gone as far as they can come on your life journey. That’s not to say your paths will not cross again at some point in time but for now you must continue on without them.
Every moment of life is precious and every moment is special because once that moment is gone it becomes apart of your stories past. Notice when you start a new chapter in your life, notice the changes that happen. You move to another city, change employment, people transition to the unseen, babies are born, you finish school, you get married or divorced all these time lines in our life causes us to stop, breath and then rest in order to keep moving toward our goal and purpose in life.
Artist freeze time in photography, drawing, paintings and sculptures. For that moment it is frozen on canvas, digital photography, or a drawing but it is only frozen for us because time keeps moving forward.
This painting was done when we heard “Prince” had passed. The paints are Winsor & Newton Artist Oil Violet, Oxide of Chromium, Soft White, and Brunt Brown. It was painted on Canson Canva-Paper. This and many other paintings can be found at http://chinue.imagekind.com/

This has been a week of all kinds of shifts and adjustments. As many of you know I Periscope broadcast live stream as many people do with the influx of live streaming. All of my live steams were being saved on a third-party server as with many other people. Originally this was such a great idea since we could save our scopes on this server forever while we decide how to use them later for other opportunities.
Then the unthinkable happen, an email stating they were going to close the site down effective May 4, 2016. Talk about everyone going into “Olivia Pope” mode to see what could be done to rescues our scopes from being deleted forever from this third-party platform.
Katch.me has been nice enough to assist all of us in getting our scopes off their server before it closes forever by helping us move them either to our hard drive or YouTube.
As for now my scopes are downloaded to my hard drive and I am slowly moving them over to YouTube, thank goodness I have less that one hundred so I should have them all downloaded in a few weeks.
The lesson this has taught me as an artist is always be prepared to re-position yourself when one door closes. No one thought this would happen so every Virtual Assistant is gaining new clients because people who have three hundred or more scopes will have to have help moving them over to another space. Live stream is the future, and as it grows we all will have to adjust to many changes along the way.
We all will have to learn to re-position ourselves when we find ourselves in one of those “Olivia Pope” moments. Breath, step back and reset so we can continue to move forward and not become ship wrecked as the above oil painting on Canvas Panel.

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.
