You ravish my heart

3rd picture of pursuing portraits…. the background was done with layers and layers of art tissue, tape, and pages from an old bible, paint and then more paint and then a wash with white paint.

face #2

feeling a little more comfortable in that i now have the required tools to draw and shade with. i still need to work on my blending but it's coming along and i really do enjoy being able to go at my own pace and be in the comfort of my home. thank you

My first face.

Didn't quite have the right tools but couldn't wait to get started.

Pursuing Portraits by Pam Carriker

I'm so excited….. It's here my DVD by Pam Carriker - Pursuing Portraits. Painting faces is a challenge and learning the right technique's are important to me. This DVD has been recommended by my friend Carrie Todd, so i'm very excited to get started.

Be true to yourself

sometimes in this crazy busy life we get caught up in things which can be so easy to do.  staying grounded can be hard….  sometimes we can be influenced by other artist and in that we compromise who we are as an artist.  there are so many talented artist out there, so be true to yourself or you won't know what talents you have.

What better way to spend a day off from work and do ART!  It's been a while since my last painting so it felt real good to get my fingers in the paint. I love using my fingers to paint with….

BIRTHDAYS have come and gone…..

 This is Jadyn she has now turned 2.  Her theme was Alice in Wonderland which totally suited her personality. She was told to do something as she exclaimed NO, NO, NO and ran off to the back garden area. That's so Alice I thought! Too much personality and I love her so much.

 This is our  Aubrie the little princess. She is now 1, and cute as can be. She can dance and is the cutest thing to watch. I love how she gives me kisses and when her mommy ask her do you love grandma,  she yells YEAHHHHH!!! Love my Aubrie so much!  This was a big day for our princess.

This is Madden one of the kindest good hearted little boys, always a smile on his face. He has the most beautiful blue eyes. I think he's going to be one of those gentle giants, as my son is 6'4". I love this little guy and his sweet little heart.  He too is now 1!!!!  

This is Jacob the last of the 4……such a cutie.  He looks a little mischievous in this picture, but I love his sweet little face. Definitely a lot of personality too!! He has also turned 1 this year.  As you can see I've been busy with 4 grand babies all having their birthdays…May, June, July  & August. BUT it's been fun and I'm so grateful. Thank Lord for all my blessings :)
