Paint Party Friday ~


in the evenings
wanting to do art 
without much thinking
I sketch swiftly
color with watercolor pencils
(loving Derwent Inktense for their vibrant colors)
and quickly brush with water
fun fast(er)
inspiring a looseness in my art, i think


perhaps it is simply fun
but also somehow nurturing
because I loose myself in the moment
a sort of meditation


these three are what I share for PPF
please join us or visit us to enjoy wonderful paintings!
~

also, it is my pleasure to share Amaila K!
Most likely many of you know Amaila, her gorgeous mystically charming art
and her generous sharing heart. 

Recently I ordered dreamy beautiful art from her, 
she was including an amazing gift of a tiny painting for anyone who bought from her store, an ACEO.

The package arrived and was filled with her magic
in the form of art:


Treat yourself by visiting her blog: Translucent Blue
Her Webstore: The Wish Forest

Maybe you too would enjoy purchasing one of her gorgeous pieces!
Thank you Amalia!

  1. The things you got from Amalia are gorgeous!

    Your work this week is just as beautiful. Loved it...and your poetry (as always!)

    I'm glad you enjoyed the insanity that is Bailey! The dolls are SO close to being finished. I worked on them all day today. Just wigs and skirts left to do. They are all assembled (and seem to have strange personalities already!). I hope they don't wander off during the night while I sleep.

    and lucky you to get such beautiful things from Amalia! Doesn't her work just make you smile and smiles?

    Hoping this finds you well and happy - if your beautiful paintings are any indication you are both!
