More Cards and Interpreting Art

Hello and happy Weekend once again! I'm linking with PPF and SS and hope you will join me. (see links on the right)
This week I worked on making book markers for the vendor show in November.
I'll cut this up and cover it with plastic.
I also went to several different blogs in response to my new venture into interpreting art. This first painting is by Nic of Nic's Earth.
You can visit her at
Here is what I came up with after looking at her picture: I think Nik is a spiritual person with a positive outlook and a high destiny to fulfill. I also think she is a strong person. I love this beautiful painting and was so impressed with the style!
The next blog I went to was Linda's. You can visit her here.
Here is the painting that caught my eye:
This is what I learned when I saw it: Linda is a person who is sweet, friendly and loves beauty. She is also a passionate and deep person. I love her painting and the wonderful colors she used!
I next went to Ginny's blog. You can visit her here.
Here is her pretty painting:
Here is what I thought when I saw Ginny's painting: She loves people and has an ability to connect with them. She also encourages others and is a spiritual person. I really love the softness of her paintings!
The next blog is Anne Manda's and you can visit her here.
Here is her painting from a couple of weeks ago:
This is what I thought when I saw Anne's painting. She is a strong person with a desire to succeed. She likes to do new things and has strong beliefs and values. I enjoy seeing her paintings with their incredible detail and colors!
Next I went to Catherine's blog. You can visit her here.
Below is her painting:
Here is what I thought when I saw this painting: Catherine is a bright articulate person, who enjoys new accomplishments. She is a passionate person especially about her life dreams. I so enjoy her lively and fun art and blog!
The last blog I went to was Janice's. You can visit her here.
Here is the painting I chose:
From this painting, here is what I thought: Janice is an upbeat person with a positive outlook on life. She is fun loving and encourages others. I love her watercolor flowers!
I really enjoyed visiting the different artist's and viewing their art with a different perspective this week. I would love to hear back from the blogs I visited to see if you feel I was acurate with my descriptions. If anyone else is interested, I would love to come visit your blog and post about it next week.
Have a lovely weekend everyone! xo

More Cards and Something Different

Hello everyone and Happy weekend! I've been working on more cards, some are finished are some are wips, but here is what I have so far:
I'm linking to PPF and SS, and hope you will join me!
I've been taking a class about interpreting tatoos, which has been very interesting. It made me wonder if the same ideas could be used for art. So I want to try out my knowledge but I need a volunteer. Anyone interested? It's free of course, and I would need your permission to post your art on my blog. I would also put a link to your blog so others could visit you.
If your interested either send me an email or leave me a comment and let me know which piece of art you would like me to look at.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! xo

Still Working on the Beach Painting

Good morning, or afternoon if you are from down under. smiles...I'm still working on my beach painting and I've made a few changes and additions.
I'm liking it more and more, and think I'm finished with it. So I'll paint the sides and have my husband spray it with a sealant, then it will hang in our house until I'm ready to sell it. Maybe at my vendor fair this November. I've been busy making Christmas cards for the fair. Here's a few of them.
I've made over 50 cards, and still want to make a few more, maybe another 20?
Well it's off to work for me, but I'm linking with Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches before I go. I hope you will join me! Have a wonderful weekend!!

PPF and SS...I'm Back!

Hello everyone, I'm finally back in my studio, and working like crazy! I was off a couple of weeks ago, and just have been so busy with all the fall birthdays in our little family. All 4 of my grandkids have their birthdays in September and October, plus both of my kids have their birthdays in the fall! It's a really busy time of year, so I just didn't have time for much painting or blogging. Also, I have a vendor fair to prepare for, so I've been making cards etc for that.
While I was at the beach, I came up with ideas for a painting I started, but just wasn't happy with. Here is what I've done so far this week:
What do you think of the added shells?? Should I keep them? I'm still not sure, but I do like the girl a little better, and I have an idea to paint a cool vine I saw at the beach which will probably cover up some of the shells. Also a bird is in the works...hopefully next week, I will have a finished painting!
