I always like to say that my word of the year is Chocolate, because lets face it, 99.9 of people enjoy it (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)
But in a more art related way, I decided that my word for this year is Create.
It is inviting, proclaiming and being actively working in my goals.
I go in my own rhythm and timing. I create because I love to, and I like to see where the pencil or brush takes me.
I do not want to take it as a New Year resolution, just simply as a fresh reminder of the pleasure of creating, the benefit of doing something for me, and something to enjoy the company of like-minded friends. (°‿~ )✌
In the past when I had the word "Focus", it really helped me to chase one of my goals and work on it.
Do you have a word? Have you noticed it helped you?
I hope whatever it is, you will find harmony and benefit with it, in this brand new page in time.
Thanks for visiting, Hugs!
To see what I create please visit my channel here
Happy New Year!
2016 was a weird year, and specially bad for those that were male singers. or female actresses.... lets leave it at that.
For me personally it was a big change of house, town and family numbers, as my son remained for one more year in the old town for his university classes.
We are not quite sure we are liking this new town but as we always do, we try our best to thrive till we can change things. That's all one can do really.
As for art, my YouTube channel has been growing beautifully thanks to visitors, and subscribers. That feeds my need to create more art!
May your paintbrush be well loaded and your canvas ready to create.
Thanks for stopping by and lets make 2017 awesome!
In this page I use a very easy technique for those days when we have little time but we still want to paint. Give yourself at least 10 minutes to create your art, even if you get interrupted! https://youtu.be/O2bicbxa3lI
I am in an art collaboration with Britta Mindart.dk in Denmark and Sue in Scotland, so much fun! It is the FITW (face in the world) an art collab where each of us finishes the starting paint of the other in a team of 3.
In this video I make a very simple way to add colorful hair to a portrait.
Let me know what you think, and say hello in the channel if you can ♥
By now it is more than obvious that I am not keeping up with my blogging.
The moving in the middle of the 29 challenge was hard enough, but this unpacking and getting used to a new area, a few things not working properly, weather (dryer and with tons of mosquitoes) 😐 and still unpacking, has proven a bit too much.
Here are some updates:
Surprisingly, I did finish the 29 faces.
My birthday was a few weeks ago, and my daughter turned 19.
I have opened more boxes that I can believe.... and I am not done yet!
Every little thing that could've been wrong, did indeed go wrong. We didn't have beds for days so we remained in a hotel. No internet either, so I felt lucky to have a Starbucks near by, even if I'm not a big coffee drinker :oS
I have been trying to see it as an adventure, but I am yet to clear and organize my art room and that is very stressing.
Anyway, I hope I can settle soon, it is really draining.
Mostly, I have been aiming my attention to my channel, so if you want to see what I'm up to, please visit HERE
Thank you very much for stopping by, I hope you have a blessed rest of the day ♥
As you probably know by now, we have been in the chaos of moving. Everything that could take longer or go wrong, did go wrong and took longer...
I lost track of how many faces I have made so far, because I posted some in one network but not another , and not here in the blog either... But I will be checking and trying to finish on time.
I cannot figure how to post my images from my iPad... Did I tell you we can't find my monitor yet?
This will be funny sometime in the future 😐
For now I will show you a picture of our cat in his old favorite spot.
What elements make a face, a face? When does a splash turn into a face?
I am really enjoying painting the minimum to make a face look like a face.
It is hard for me, loving detail so much, but if you try it, it is a good exercise, and you can always come back and do your familiar thing.
For this challenge I always like trying abstracts and stopping to see what is happening at that time on the composition and the face.
