IF- Tales and Legends

Finding my style.
My only experience with illustration has been my few attempts at Illustration Friday since last August. I have not yet developed my own style or technique. I feel strongly influenced by all my favorite artists blogging out there. Thanks again for the inspiration. I hope that my work does not resemble anyone else's too much. Soon I'll start finding my way.

I am grateful for the "Walk the Talk" discussion at the gallery. Again I am reminded of how much I am able to communicate through my art. My ideas were validated and recognized as more than just visual thought. I was surprised that everyone is in agreement that my work is "so spiritual". To me, it feels mental - but I am realizing I have more success when I follow my intuition, let things happen naturally and do not over think the process. Thank you to those who attended and especially to Linda and Gregg for facilitating.


Stitch - Illustration Friday

I missed Illustration Friday last week. Here is a little watercolor of a piece of embroidered fabric I was sewing with last week. Now I've painted it for the topic "stitch".

I added some Windsor & Newton Iridescent Medium over the top of the embroidery work to add a little sparkle to the fancy thread.

And here is my boot. I've recently acquired a pair of second-hand boots for only $4. [R>R>R] Made with 100% man made materials. [cruelty free]

In certain situations I feel uncomfortable being tall, but I noticed last week at work that I am over 6' tall with these things on. I enjoy being tall at the office. It makes me feel more confident. I love my new boots.

And after all this....
I am falling in love with the color brown.

Plain and simple.
