Lessons were learned. She’ll take a comfy place in my journal as a reminder of what worked and what didn’t (wings always seem like a good idea but rarely make the cut in my world - literally and figuratively.)

She reminds me of a next gen Holly Hobbie. And that’s a good thing, right? .

Low tide continues. Thank goodness for a little creative juju that has settled in. Carrying on with the very odd colors though. 😂 .

I can’t contain my need for all the colors. Creating odd pools of paint, smudging in weird pops of pastels, and messy thoughts of all that is reality right now. Trying hard to love the results even when my noggin wants to tear them up. My heart knows they have beauty even if my brain doesn’t. #keepupthegoodwork .

Low Tide series work in progress. I am finding that the success of the piece has a lot to do with minimizing my range of values. Bitty pops of contrast and a balance of black ink and preserving white space too. .

Continuing this Low Tide series - trying to replicate the process of the Original to get the same feeling. This is when you figure out if a piece of art is a “one and done” -meaning - it’s a beauty but it won’t work as a new direction or series because I flat out can’t figure out how I did it. .

On my table today. Trying to find a glimmer of creative goodness in a mucky world of murder hornets, social distancing and boredom. Thank goodness I can paint rainbows still! .

Mark making just to make marks. Letting go of the need to create a finished piece and just play with mixtures of mediums to see what they do. What’s on you creative plate today? .

In the midst of all the crazy, my world is a bit crazier as we managed to sell our home and are relocating to San Diego! It’s been a long time coming and the world forced our had over the last few months. My studio is officially packed and I am pert with a pad of paper and a pencil for the next couple of weeks. Hopefully you’ll stick with me during my “non-color” phase and see me on the other side raring to go with my watercolors again! #bigmoveinthemidstofapandemic .
