Happy New Year


Happy New Year everyone. I have been quite throughout the holidays and the start of the new year. Enjoying my family life, as it should be. Hope you all had a chance to do the same. 

I had a good couple of weeks getting in touch my inner self.
As always, I have been steadily in the studio....trying to clean it out lately (in progress) :/
But for now this my word of the week. 
It relates to everything in my life and it feels good to just chill out. 
Did this page to remind me in the future this state of being, and what I was doing in my life to helped that.  
Next is an art journal page from this month, you would have seen this first picture on my Instagram if you follow me there.
*hint hint....
I carved this January stamp last year. Then I took the two pages farther. I like how they turned out.

Art for my Mom

My Mom was visiting me around Thanksgiving and the first part of December.  She wanted some art to take back to Dallas with her. It gave me a chance to play with no restrictions.  After all it was for my Mom, I knew she'd love anything I made. ;)
Here is one of the pieces. Here is one of the mixed media pieces I painted and stamped.
Using gouache, hand carved stamps, inks (dye, pigment and chalk), pen, masking fluid and one small strip of tape. 




It's always so tricky to know when to stop. This is 11x14 on Bristol, smooth.
Thanks for dropping by.... have more things to share, so please visit again!
