New art work that my husband hates….

Well, I just tried a new art technique from the following book which is amazing, you should give it a read!!  The book is by Mary Beth Shaw.  Click the picture below to order.

 

However the technique I used was by Misty Mawn and I fell in love with it.  Check out her link!  She’s amazing!  So here is the result of my attempt at one of her tutorials.  I loved it, My hubby, not so much.  It’s two panels put together to create one full image.  I was very happy with it, but I LOVE that my husband can be so honest with me.  We have VERY different taste in art so I’m going to show it regardless of his review, but I’m interested in YOUR review…shoot some comments at me and let me know what you think.  It’s different from my normal style but I’m branching out and would love to hear from you.  I can handle some constructive criticism! So I would LOVE to hear your comments below!!

Don’t forget to LIKE me on Facebook, DIGG  and check out Misty Mawn & Mary Beth Shaw  They are worth your time believe me!!

Some old work turned new…

  

 

 

 

This is a piece I started a  year ago, sat it in the corner and hated it.

Then this week I  just went after it with a paint brush and did

whatever I felt like to it and I’m pretty happy with  how it turned out.

It only took a year in a corner and two tries!!

And of course more hummingbird prints….I love my babies….

For a Multi-Media Artist ADD means Addicted to Amazon Desperately!! (Wait that AAD :-)

I am a book addict AND I’m ADD and it’s consuming my life! 

You see there’s this little place called Amazon.com and the little fact that I’m not only an artist but and art teacher so I am ADDICTED to ordering art technique books from Amazon!

Then I can’t just READ them….NO…I have to start every project in them…ALL AT ONCE…and at this point my studio might as well be divided with little walls of duct tape like a child dividing his room from his little brother….collage lab in this corner, abstracts on the rocking chair, illustrations on the easel, block prints on the table, Art at the Speed of Life on my bed in my journal, and even drawing lab on the floor of my studio…right smack in the center…

But you know what…I’m doing it…I’m doing it all…I’m a little crazy yes and anyone who knows me understands that fully, but I’m doing all these projects simultaneously and loving it!!!

So I thought I’d share.

Over the next few posts (whoever’s out there reading) I thought I’d share some work I’ve done with each book, finished or not and maybe even share the mess that’s gone along with it in my life and in my studio.

My goal is to show you that you can Multi-task as a Multi-Media Artist!  And you can Love it!

And Yes while copying and pasting these images from Amazon I ordered another book!!!
