"For an artist there is no more serious and, at the same time, more joyous task than to create, through art, a new aesthetic, and ultimately, a new way of being."

Original Paintings for auction on November 29!

Posted by on Nov 26, 2016 in Art, Drawing, Painting, watercolour | 2 comments

It has been a busy month here in Moongirl-land and I’ve got two new paintings to show for it! These lovelies will be up for auction over on Facebook’s Soul Sister’s United Art Collective from November 29-30.

The Better To Hold You With | ORIGINAL watercolour on 8.5×11 140lb cold pressed paper

Shelter | ORIGINAL Acrylic on 12×12 canvas

Every month the art will be based around a different theme. Our first theme is Connected Together. There are ten artists involved including myself and I’ve enjoyed seeing everyone’s work in progress. The excitement as we come closer to our auction date makes me wish I could fit in another painting! Come on over and join the group if you haven’t already and are looking for that special gift for someone…or for yourself because we all deserve something special!

Happy creating!

Art update!

Posted by on Oct 29, 2016 in Art, Close to Home, Drawing, Gallery Nouveau Auctions, Painting | 4 comments

img_1034The summer zoomed by including a trip out of province. I had brought a bag of art supplies but we were so very busy that it remained untouched and when we returned from out trip I was exhausted and just needed time to reflect on our trip and kind of reset things. By end of August I welcomed the opening of the  Close to Home workshop. I looked forward to painting something that didn’t rely on my imagination for once. As much as I love painting from my imagination there was something so wonderful about painting what I saw in front of me and it gave my brain a break that it still needed. I had a great time learning some tips and tricks for painting landscapes. I wanted to learn how to paint a landscape where I could show an impression and not a very detailed likeness. I wanted to be able to paint something rather quickly and still be able to identify the location. It was so very fun!!
img_1054A few weeks later my mother came for a lovely visit and between the sightseeing-of-things-seen-before-but-always-nice-to-revisit I managed to fit in a couple of drawings for Inktober. I started to stress when I was getting behind with the ink drawings but decided to let it go because art should be fun, not stressful–at least for me. 🙂 I also ordered a Pentel Brush Pen after reading all of the raves and let me tell you–love it! Love! You should probably get one too. 😉 I’m also digging this natural kraft style drawing paper. It seems less intimidating that a stark white blank sheet. img_1065I have also been enjoying this beautiful season filled with colour! Oh how I love Fall! The leaves are so lovely and the breeze, that fresh breeze, is so invigorating! A good friend of mine hosts a Nature Lab where every day she sends members ideas on ways to connect with nature. I was inspired to draw on some leaves I had found while out for a walk with my boys. So fun!! If you wanted to try something similar I would highly recommend a Posca Pen. They are the best paint pens and will write on anything!img_1339I will also be a part of a new group artist auction site on Facebook! There will be ten artists each auctioning pieces once a month beginning the end of November. I will post more details soon! I don’t think I ever mentioned that the Artist Gallery Nouveau decided to close their doors. I needed the break so it was good timing but I think this is a sign that it’s time to start creating anew.

Happy creating!

Knits and Reads

Posted by on Oct 26, 2016 in Knits, Life, Other Things, Yarn Along | 4 comments

Joining Ginny for Yarn Along today!

armwarmerI have been knitting on a fairly regular basis but haven’t been blogging about it. And I am always reading. 😉

I adore Braiding Sweetgrass. Absolutely adore it and was thrilled when a friend offered to lend it to me. I have read Gathering Moss and still wonder why I don’t own a copy. It’s magical.

I’ve just begun to read Pax. I keep seeing it at the book store and library. It’s calling to me, I guess. I hear it’s a tear jerker so I’ve been avoiding it but it just kept showing up in my view so I had to give in. Tearjerker or not, I must read this book! 🙂

I finished my first arm-warmer last night. I haven’t posted this project on Revelry as I am rather lazy about that. I just find running to my phone or computer all the time to update my life is rather absurd sometimes. You know? But it’s nice to check in every once in a while. 🙂  I will be posting about my latest art works soon too!

Happy creating!!

It’s October!! Boo and hoot! 🙂

Click for the downloadable pdf here: oct

*******I have added October 30 and 31 to the top left spots on the calendar because I wanted enough room for Halloween to have it’s own square. Halloween is too much fun to squeeze it in below the 24th spot, right??? 😉

Remember this is already sized for the Leuchtturm 1917 to fit sideways on a sheet so don’t resize for printing if that is the BuJo you use. 🙂

Happy Bujo’ing!
