Mixed Media Monday 5/18/15 – “Sometimes you will never know…”

The theme for Monday’s Mixed Media Monday was “Teenagers Happen”.  Yes, thanks to one of my teenagers (who had no idea he was downloading movies and stealing the bandwidth) the show did not go on.  However, I am happy to say that I did carry on with the piece.  My motto is the show must go on so I did record the entire process for your viewing pleasure!  Here is what I painted Monday LIVE……


and on this rainy Memorial Weekend I took the time to re-create this…


Here is the list of materials that I used to create this page…


Remember if you are not logged in you cannot participate in the chat live.  It is FREE and FUN!  I love to see the chat going and the connections you all make while I am painting. Please enjoy the video HERE  from last night…
PURCHASE ORIGINAL PAINTING HERE!  Thank you to all who are purchasing my original paintings!  Products used in my work can be purchased in my Shop.


So with that I say THANK YOU to everyone who tuned in and stuck with me to the bitter end!  Next week the teens in the household have been banned  Don’t forget to join our Facebook Group HERE:  Mixed Media Monday’s!  It is free to tune in and use the supplies you have!!  It is all about the inspiration and letting it go.  Just a reminder to stay tuned to my birthday fun coming up!  Just a few more days and I am 45 and I will be celebrating with giveaways!!!  Just a reminder to check out my calendar of events as the next Mixed Media Monday is May 25th!

Until then…do something creative everyday!

“Let go of the foolish need to compare yourself to everyone else, and you’ll free yourself to accomplish what matters most to you.  Sometimes you have to remind yourself that you don’t have to always be and do what everyone else is being and doing.  If you compete with others, you will become bitter.  If you compete with a previous version of yourself, you will become better.  It’s as simple as that.  You are not in competition with anybody except yourself; plan to outdo your past not other people.  And keep in mind that when you’re not competing against others, you can instead work with them on a common goal.  You can use your combined insights and talents to achieve what none of you can alone.  Incredible personal growth and learning occurs through relationships when the competitive spirit is replaced with a collaborative one.”

  1. I loved how it turned out and it is good to see life happens everywhere even for a fave artist. Too funny. The prom pictures were great too!

  2. FANTASTIC way to persevere Tracy! Bless his heart. 🙂 This is – as always – just WONDERFUL. Someday I hope to be able to just “create” comfortably like you do. These colors just totally make me happy as does the fun design. Thanks so much for the tutorial. I am off to visit your ‘sale’ now… hope I can find something fun. j.
