I really don’t set out to cover the whole page. it just happens. I love the blue and pinks. the circles, the flowers, polka dots and woman sticker ( Elaine Michelle Etsy).

this process is pretty simple. I do a bit of reading. I listen to some music. In this case Jesus Culture’s 2nd album and I go with the flow. Anyways, here bits from Tim Holtz, Paige Evan and Felicity Jane spattered about, too. I ended up having to gesso these pages (liquitex professional is my favorite) because the paper is super thin. I mixed some gesso with some cobalt (art alchemy’s by finnabair). the magenta is from Dina walkley and the other colors are watercolors from various sources..probably Jane daveport.

lately I am doing a lot pf scrapbooking of my kids and sketching. I have been painting more faces trying to find a happy medium between realism and cartoon.

I really adore this sticker of the woman (from Elaine Michelle’s shop). When I first put it down I worked that it would look too spiffy next to my random bits but now I really like the idea of the woman with the cup…empty, full, something in-between…

tbh I feel like during any given day I cycle thrown all the above and that is okay. I think I am met just where I am and that is always good news.
