Mucha-Inspired Mixed Media Girl WIP

After purchasing a wonderful art book on the works of Alphonse Mucha recently, I was inspired to start working on this mixed media girl with the peony in her hair.

She isn't finished yet. I can never seem to get enough time in my studio! So she is a work in progress. But hopefully I'll get a chance to finish her soon.

Hey Girl - Paint Covered Shirt

I may be an oddball, but the Hey, Girl memes will never get old to me. And I love Ryan Gosling anyway. :)

Hey Girl that paint shirt is sexy

I have lots of paint-covered shirts. ;)

With Brave Wings She Flies Mixed Media Girl

Well I finally managed to find time to get back in the studio, after about 2 months of not being able to. It felt so good to be back in there and getting creative again! I had just gotten some new scrapbook paper and I was anxious to put it to use in a painting. So the result is this new Mixed Media Girl.

It may be awhile before I can get into the studio again. I was glad to be able to spend about 6-7 hours in there yesterday painting away. And you know I have this thing about mixed media girls with pink hair. Not sure why, but I love that. The butterflies and roses are all from the new scrapbook paper I got.

"With Brave Wings She Flies," is what it says. Keep soaring!

Grandma Kephart in New York Digital Art

Since I haven't done any in awhile, I decided to create some digital art this evening. I used my Great Grandma Kephart as my muse, in a photograph taken of her (in the 50's, I believe) in New York.

Lots of layering of digital imagery in this digital art too. I really like how it turned out. And Grandma always loved roses. The NAIH is a family motto: Never Apart In Heart. Always true.

Love and miss you, Grandma!

Artist Friend with Benefits Art Meme

An art meme just for giggles...

An art supply store owner. Now that's why I'd call a friend with benefits!

Repurposing for the Studio

If you're like me, you do a lot of repurposing for your studio, especially when it comes to water containers. I have never bought anything to put water in for my studio. I always repurpose some plastic container that I get. As I found one today that is the perfect size for water and brushes, I decided to make a quick Art Meme about it.
