Portrait is very loosely based on a Juliette Belmonte painting. Painted on a 9 x 12 cradled board. Mixed media background is the prep for another painting.

“Happy are the painters, for they shall not be lonely. Light and colour, peace and hope, will keep them company to the end, or almost to the end, of the day.”

Daily Graces Return #59- Visionary
I love how an artist can be inspired by so many different things. This piece was inspired by a Lynne Perella spread in the May/June Somerset Studio magazine. I created texture shapes and added elements and backgrounds from ItKuPilli (Mischief Circus); and Teddi Rutschman (Foxeysquirrel). Titled, “Visionary.”

No text to this piece. It morphed into playing with backgrounds and elements from a variety of digital kits; from ItKuPilli and E-scape and Scrap. Inspired by a piece in the book, “The Collage Ideas Book.”

Inspired by Lesson 3 from A Veil of Wax class taught by Ivette Newport. The wax is till a bit cloudy in this photo but couldn’t wait to share her. I drew and painted her on a piece of watercolor board. I used Daniel Smith watercolor paints, charcoal pencil, colored pencil, white water-soluble oil paint, and encaustic wax; plus a little bling! I love this piece!

I thought this was powerful from Ann Voskamp’s book, The Broken Way.
