Sorry for the delay in posting this!  It has been while but I am glad to be back to Mixed Media Monday and in the Studio painting.  Again I was inspired by some words that were entrusted to me by a friend and I included it in my piece. I was also moved by some sunflowers that were in my room and reminded me that life is beautiful…..inspiration comes from all around you and you have to draw from that.


Here is the 12″ X 16″ Canson Artboard I painted LIVE…..


Original artwork available for purchase HERE.

Purchase this original piece HERE.  I love the stick I ran outside to get.  It worked perfectly!!……


Thank you for sharing so many Monday’s and so much more.  Don’t forget to join our Facebook Group HERE:  Mixed Media Monday’s!  It is truly about the inspiration, the connections and letting it go.  Just a reminder to check out my calendar of events for classes and Mixed Media Monday Dates.   The next Mixed Media Monday due to travel and Halloween will be October 31st (special afternoon edition!)!  We may need to plan something in between as that is way too long!
Until then…do something creative everyday!
It’s impossible to know exactly how another person is feeling or what kind of emotional battles they’re presently fighting.  Every smile or sign of strength hides an inner struggle every bit as complex and extraordinary as your own”
