It’s been a long time and many things have happened between my last post in June and now, far too much to get into here. While I have been doing all those other things though, I kept making art, although a little less often and a little slower than usual for me. Over the coming few days and weeks, I will be posting some of that art, mostly done in markers as they are portable and I was able to take them wherever I happened to be. I hope you are all well and still blogging your hearts out ( I have been reading, liking!). I look forward to visiting your blogs a little more regularly and hope that you will come to visit me as well now that you know I have not dropped off the face of the earth (ha!). This piece is based on a photograph I took while tromping around Cape Spear in my beloved Newfoundland. As you can see, I have injected some colours that are not actually on this old lighthouse but boy would I have fun painting it pink!! Enjoy and keep making art!!
Hi folks, this is my first blog including text only. Just wanted to let you know that I am still around and still reading blogs but I am moving at the moment and have been extremely busy with the move and finishing up at work before I go on vacation. Hopefully, I can start blogging and making art again as soon as possible as I am certainly feeling the fact that I haven’t put brush to paper or canvas for almost a month!!! Unheard of in the past three years and becoming intolerable!! I am admiring the art around me daily, from the art I find in the natrual environment to the clothing people wear to all of your fabulous blogs!! Wish me luck in getting back to the studio (or some semblance of a studio) very soon! All the best and keep making art!!! Blog on my friends, Lorelei x
No matter how much I paint, I still love to just let the water and paint do as they please…two lovers completely reliant on one another and yet completely free and unencumbered, Enjoy the simplicity and keep making art!
My apologies for the quality of the last two photos…must have been tired when I took those but as I have said many times before, I am an artist, not a photographer. I hope you can endeavor to enjoy regardless!
My apologies for the first photo. I didn’t have a good look at the photos before I moved on with the process and as most processes go, once you’re into it, there is no turning back. Hopefully the second and third photos makes up for my first! Enjoy!
Recently, I decided to draw and paint some of my mother’s china patterns. The china has already been commandeered by various family members but I wanted to create some memory of it, the fine dinner parties and the good company for my mother. Here is the first attempt at one of her pieces using a process approach. Most of you know I’m not what I would call a “perfectionistic” or “fussy” artist. I barely look at the page when I draw, trying to trust my eye to send the proper messages back to my visual cortex and hope that it all transfers through to the motor cortex properly! I hardly ever erase so what I see is what you get. Enjoy, have a root through your family things and see what you can make of it and, as always, keep making art.
My niece is getting married on June 7, 2013 and I wanted to try out an idea for her wedding gift. I would like to create a piece with this same idea but with her bouquet and her wedding shoe. The bouquet is made up of peonies and I’ve just got to snap a photo of her shoes! Creeping her Pinterest page may help! Enjoy, suggestions are welcome and keep making art!
