The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

Sneak Peek

~~I've had a couple of people ask so....I'll give you a little sneak peek of what I'm working on, lol. This is just the bottom. It's taller and there's more towards the top. (It's a long, narrow format of 20" x 16".) The white thing is the foot of a stuffed animal that I haven't started working on. (Are you curious yet?)
I started out trying to take a lot of progress pics and gave up. The painting changes so much with every layer added and I get "in the zone" and forget to stop and take a picture.
~~I'm hoping to have this one done by the end of the week. Right now it's off to the grocery store.
Have a super day!

ETA: This is showing an overall pink cast on the screen that isn't there in real life. I'm really going to have to work on adjusting the colors in Photoshop when I'm completely done.

Colorful rainboots are one of my favorite things -- especially on cute kids. I've had an illustration featuring kids in rainboots rolling around in my head for about a year now, and I haven't been able to get to it. Of course, my work can't hold a candle to your talent! Can't wait to see it all!

Thank you everyone! This has been a fun one to work on.
The rainboots are actually pink. I'm having trouble getting the correct color to show on screen.

Oh, and thanks for the recipe below. I'm going to try that one. Hope everything is well :)
