Playing with Color

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.love-to-sew-originallogo

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.   love-to-sew-brightlogo

Which do you like best?

The Flowers That Be

Here’s the drawing I made a couple of weeks ago.  I painted it with watercolors and then played around with the exposure, and added some boarders on the computer.

Pom Pot

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!pom-pot

 

Got Orff?

Before I ventured into art, I taught elementary music.   I am a proponent of the “Orff” method of music education which combines movement, percussion instruments, speech and song.  I completed my 3rd level of Orff training (named for Carl Orff, a German composer) last summer and now I am Orff certified!  Making music with kids is quite fun.

I made this little poster for music teachers who are also into “Orff”.    You can find it in my Teachers Pay Teachers store, “Classroom Doodles”, here.

For you Orff teachers out there.

Fun wIth Copic Markers

I have often read about Copic markers on various art blogs.  So when I was in an art supply store recently, I decided to make the investment in a new media to see what they were all about.  I love the saturated color.
