I started this blog to participate in the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge by Leslie Seata. I have been a creative person from childhood and have always loved making things. I have been a professional quilter for many years. Just recently, I have been doing more drawing and took up watercolor as my medium.
This little birdie expresses my sentiments exactly. Just as little time creating at my sewing machine puts me in my happy place–something I haven’t had time to do a lot of lately.
As with my last post, I’ve playing with the color on the computer. The above painting is the original. Below is the computer enhanced version. I do kind of like the brighter colors which I can’t seem to create as well with watercolor.
Got up before dawn this morning to the sound of rain. Kind of unusual for Las Vegas. After studying for tomorrow’s Sunday School lesson, I was in the mood to paint. So while listening to a quilting podcast and downing a few Girl Scout cookies ( the lemon ones are surprisingly good!), I got to work. Life is good.
This little drawing is based on antique needlework patterns. I added a fabric texture in Ipiccy–don’t know if you can tell. Though my brushwork is a little messy, I like how it turned out. And it was much faster than needle-turn applique!
We’ve been singing Valentine’s songs all week long. Here is a little coloring page for you. Hopefully you can print it out without a problem. (Hopefully! Since I’m not very tech savvy) Go to “Coloring Pages” on this site and download a pdf from my Teacher store.
