So I’m still unemployed. J says I should take advantage of this time to focus my creative energies into my artwork. So, that’s what I’m attempting to do. I’ve started a new series called “Life Simplified.” I’ve been doing alot of painting lately and thought I’d take a breather from my bold acrylic colors and try some softer watercolor shades. (Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Acrylic, I just feel like something a bit mellower right now)
That being said, remember the “Hold Me” series I did in Japan?
So on Sunday, we went out art supply shopping (my favorite type of shopping!!!). I bought art supplies and my husband bought a terabyte portable hard drive…this year’s anniversary theme was flowers, fruit or an appliance…we both rationalized that a portable hard drive has to constitute as an appliance…right? 😛
I digress, so I bought some really nice, thick cold press 140lb 11″ x 15″ professional grade paper. Lovely.
Here are the four outlines that I’ve finished so far.
I haven’t decided what words/sayings I’ll be putting with each piece yet. I am thinking that something relating to “trust” or “balance” will go with the first piece. Asides from that I haven’t decided. These are just the first 4 pieces that I liked to start things off so it may end up being more and, the pad does have 12 sheets. 😉
Anyway, I must go figure out color scheme and sayings.
