What's everyone up to for 2021 with their art? I am in a weird place. Not feeling compelled to do much art at the moment. I was with kids for almost 3 weeks and did no art. Reading a lot since I got home.
I know the spark will return. It always does. I will be in the fallow for now. It's OK. I am familiar with this and it no longer scares me. I used to think this was permanent place. But I have learned, over time, that it is not. It's a respite. So I will repose.
Happy Painting in the meantime.

Pen and watercolor sketch in my sketchbook. From Dreamas' Flow class of which I am a member. For years I have kept an art journal. It is a visual history of my art journey. I love being able to look back at older works to remember and see my progress.
I joined this class to keep me engaged in painting. Each month there is an oil painting class and a watercolor sketch class. And one or two 'extras', like artist interviews. I think it's a good deal for the money.

From my sketch book. This is a view of the boardwalk at the ocean near me. These are lanterns that run down a part of the boardwalk. I did a 1 point perspective drawing in pencil first and then inked and painted it.

Painted in my art journal. I had the pleasure of visiting the new Botanic Gardens at Peppers Creek in Dagsboro, DE- near my home. It was a lovely day. There are forests, meadows and dunes in the gardens- benches and paths. It was peaceful and a real cup-filling sort of place.
