The Winds of Change Auction

We are starting the New Year with our first auction  – The Winds of Change. And I think its an appropriate title, it makes me think about, how do I want to manifest all the things that I desire in my life. What do I need to do to make it happen? I have been struggling with taking new directions, pushing past boundaries and self limiting beliefs. There is always something to learn and new concepts to uncover. One of my self limiting beliefs is that there is never enough time, and so maybe this year I need to relax a little bit, not to give up, but to see more opportunities and keep an eye on the things that sap my energy and time.

I like this new quote – I try the best, and God takes care of the rest 🙂

Here are my new paintings for our Winds of Change Auction

And here is a preview of some of the paintings from other home artists – Robynne Engel-Pirkle, Lucy Chen, Lara Provost, Annie Hamman, Lora Murphy, Olga Furman, Bianca Garcia and Katrina Koltes.

 

I you would like to join us, visit us here,

and I hope you have a wonderful start for the New Year!

Free Video Tutorial

BTCOn days when I don’t get a chance to do much creating, the day goes by fast and then at night I realize I have not touched the brush. I try to make very day a creative day, but not painting makes me feel as if I missed something very important. The night can seam too short to tart a very big project, so sometimes I would just grab my journal and quickly jot down something in or express how I feel with a little paint. This time I decided to start a small painting, maybe something really quick, but still somewhat meaningful to give the day a better punchline. And so this is how this painting got started.

Come and paint with me, you will need – small Cradled box, glue to attach paper, I used Yes! paste, ephemera or magazine clippings, portrait from a magazine that you like, Pumice gel or Matte Medium, large brush, small brush, lining brush.

Colors- Raw Sienna, Magenta, Paynes Gray, Magenta, Alizarin Crimson, Gesso.  Anthraquinone Blue and Hansa Yellow with gesso for the background

Enjoy!
