WINGS TO FLY – FRIDA KAHLO

Today I spent an incredibly beautiful morning in Mexico City at Frida Kahlo’s home now gallery….

Words can not do it the justice that the visual image awards us with….

Enjoy❣

Gelliplate Layers- Video

Today I was working in the studio on layers…creating a rich depth of color and texture in my work…

One of my favorite tools for this, believe it or not is the Gelliplate…

I decided to create a short video to show you how I do it….

My biggest tip to create rich texture and color in 2-3 pulls is to begin with a dirty plate, (one in which you left old paint to dry from a previous session)…this is 50% of what makes this technique successful…

Enjoy❣

  
Much Love and Peace…

Yoga HArt

I’ve been spending a lot of time working in the studio…my focus has been producing work from a place of oneness…

Meditation in color and movement…I like to think of it as movement in my heart space…it’s all love…

The work below was done in my #365daysinthelifeofajournal… My next post will show some the work that resulted from this journaling…

Enjoy ❣

  
   
    
    
    
 

Studio Color Explorations

This month’s challenge for me, is to look at color combinations differently and explore using them in various media….

Last week I used watercolors a medium I rarely use, though I love the wash of color produced… 

    
 
This week I’m working with mono printing on glass and Gelli plates using acrylics and sumi inks… 

    
    
    
 
What creative pursuits have captured your passions this week?

Ride the wind, and remember …

 

Be Inspired!

Much Love and Peace…

Free to Be….

Here’s my January 18th collage commemorating those who’s passion was for all people to be free..

Have a very creative and inspired day doing the things that excite you and feeds your passions!

Much Peace and Love

“Collage A Day” Video Fun…

I started again this year my “365 days in the life of a journal” challenge…

  
I really enjoyed this last year finishing with 365 mini art inspirations…so this year I’m doing the same challenge but in a different styled journal, which I call an Artdori…

   
 
Because it’s a midori style journal that I make and then I create an insert specifically for doing daily art journaling…

  
So here’s a time lapsed video of the process…Enjoy!

  
Much Peace and Love

#Artdori

I made this passport size daily journal after the midori style books…love this style…

Even my wallet by Hobo International is this style…though they no longer make it 😕…

I call mine an Artdori because largely that’s  what goes in it and is the focus of my life….as you guys already know…

I had the idea to add these small envelopes I got on my trip to San Francisco a few months back…as pockets to hold supplies….

I also pulled my first pro camera out to play with…want to shoot some black and white photography longing to get back into the darkroom😎…

Enjoy!
