watercolor on paper in my art journal
I painted this little piece in my art journal. Then I scanned it into my computer and then brought it into Procreate on my iPad. Using Procreate, I then made a wreath.

Poppies and Blue Trees
So I've been painting on my iPad this week. LOVE digital painting!
My reference for this was found on Pinterest. I roamed around there until I found something to paint. What drew me to this was the blue trees. I added the misty layers (always have to make it my own).

For the past few years I've gone to Disney during February to get out of the weather and attend the Arts Festival. The first year I went by myself and enjoyed it but thought there must be other like me- loves to paint and love Disney. And I found my tribe at Art Journaling the Magic with Tangie Baxter. She has retreats where we all meet up in Disney and paint the days away together. I met some great ladies last year and I am returning this year. Looking forward to my time in Disney again.
I was given a wonderful art journal made from a Disney Golden Book and I am finishing it up before the next retreat when I will get a new journal.

9" x 12"
I visited Roussillon while in France this past May. It is an amazing place where natural ochre is mined. The colors of the mountains are bright yellow to dark rust. Simply beautiful. When the sun hits them, they absolutely glow! It is hard to sense how large this mountain really is.

My muse comes and goes with the seasons. I used to fight it and it would frustrate me. No more. So these days I have been doing crafting and not fine art. I love both. I know the fine art will cycle around again when it is ready to appear. In the meantime, have a look at my fun crafting. I do love paper crafting!
This is the last thing I painted- not finished. I wanted to see if I could make the watermelon look "wet". I used gouache for this. I think I finished it but didn't take a picture.
