Always Flowers

Abstract flower painting in my art journal while on the couch tonight. Good thing they don’t have to look realistic when it’s an “abstract”!  Lots of finger painting involved.  Love the quote.

Sketching in my paint mop up journal.

First Day of Spring

Lynda's Canvas 2

“Where flowers bloom so does hope” – Lady Bird Johnson. Daffodils are my favorite flower and they are just starting to poke through the still frozen ground in the garden closest to the house. The rest of the yard is still inches deep with snow, but I have hope we will soon be seeing green! I created this on a 17″x13″ canvas board gifted to me by a friend. I started with collage, using a bunch of scraps of painted papers in my stash, then layered with acrylic and chalk paints and stencils. Drew and painted my daffodil and girl, then painted over the busy background. I framed it in with Paper Artsy chalk paints through a stencil and smeared a Distress Crayon over the edges. Love all the underlying texture!

Be Enough

Heart’s Delight

The music sheet title from the background collage started the inspiration for this creation, as well as a childhood photo I keep in my studio that always makes me smile.

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Tonight’s painty doodle play. Needed some bright colors on this very cold snowy/sleety yucky day. Tissue collage background with acrylic paint, stenciling and stamping. Doodled flowers with Stabilo All pencil and Posca pens.bloom

Blessed

Nothing like a painty fun filled play date with friends to warm up a cold winter day.

What Lies Beneath

 

Looking inside to expose the shadows, doubts and fears to bring them to the light and find peace and forgiveness. I had painted this face some months ago with watercolor markers but hated how the hair came out. I almost threw her out but stuck it in the back of my journal until I came across her the other day. I decided to cut off her hair and then the idea came to tuck her behind the burlap page I painted. I cut open the burlap and tucked it back and sewed it open. It fits my reflective mood and my word for the year of “Freedom”.
