Frida Kahlo - Wings to Fly Mixed Media

Soon I'll be back at school with little time for fun in the studio, so I've been trying to get in there as much as possible before school starts again. I was in there all day yesterday, inspired to paint Frida Kahlo.

There were a couple of times I almost gave up on this painting. It just wasn't going well at the beginning. But I persevered and, even though it's not perfect, I am very pleased with how she came out. I used mostly acrylic paints, but also scrapbook paper, stencils, colored pencils, and paint pens. Viva la Frida!

Mermaids Digital Art

I was in the mood once again to create some digital art. And I decided I want to grow a collection of mermaid creations. So, to that end, I created two mermaid themed digital art pieces that I want to share.

I love going into my studio, but sometimes getting creative digitally is just as fun. And I'm really beginning to enjoy mermaids as my muse. I definitely need to create more with them!

Everything Has Beauty Mixed Media

Sometimes I create something and I just don't love it. That was the case with this particular mixed media painting. She just didn't turn out how I pictured her in my head. But I decided to share her anyway.

I think that even though as artists we may not like something we've created, there is still beauty in it--even if we don't love it as much as other creations. And if we learn something in the process of creating, then it was worth the journey.
