Remember that old saying? Well it is so very true as we have seen here in Southern California this year with what they are calling a Super Bloom. I think that is a great way to describe my art journey this month. I am in Super Bloom! I have discovered so many new methods and they have helped me redefined what I want to accomplish in my art journey.
I attended a very nice art show this month that was held near Indio, California – our winter home. What I saw inspired me in so many ways and also freed me from the self imposed restrictions I have been placing on my art.
I also have discovered how much fun it is to sketch with charcoal and how freeing it is too. You can see me learning how to freehand portraits under Boho Artisan – Videos in the main menu at the top of this site. My latest challenge is to learn how to look at a person or image and draw/paint my subject without the use of grids, rulers or projectors. I have found charcoal pencils give me the most freedom and fun.
Mixed Media art extends my expressionism style and offers many new ways to create art. So I will be exploring many new techniques and will sure share the best ones here with you as I continue on my journey.
Remember the story of the ugly duckling that didn’t know he was really a swan? That is my hope, that I am really a swan!
