Part 2 of my art collaboration with Mystele Kirkeeng

Well, we are both finished and I have to say that was so much fun! I loved my collaboration with Mystele and I can't wait till I get that painting back in my hands! 

Here is my video of what I did with the canvas she sent me:

And here is Mystele's video showing the lovely Flower Charmer she created for me!

Can you believe how gorgeous she is! I just can't believe she is going to be mine!!!!!!

Thank you Mystele!!!! Mwah!

And I just thought I would mention that there is still time to register for Soul Food 2015

I just have to brag...

I just seriously need to brag a little about my student's work at Soul Food this year!

The theme of the class is not actually floral paintings but semi-abstract florals happened to be the subject I chose. The above two are by Jeanett I get such a Monet feel from these, swoon!

This gloriously coloured floral is by the talented Dana Christiansen... more swooning!

These beauties were just a few from Sandy Leamon-Derryberry, she was whipping them off like there was no tomorrow!

This close up of Karin Husty's is divine!

And there is also the lovely Mystele's, which was a total do over and I loved them both!

Beaming with pride for all my students work. Insert cheesy grin here. Hope you enjoyed the eye candy!

Thank you!

Art Collaboration with Mystele Kirkeeng

I can not tell you how crazy excited I am about this collaboration! Mystele Kirkeeng and I are collaborating on some art and we have each prepared a canvas for each other. Now we are sending them to each other to finish. I can't wait to see what she does with mine! 

Here are our part one videos!


And here is Mystele's video!

Screechy Malone told Fat cat Fabrizio...

that Tony the Goa-T Trasino had to be taken out because he's not one of the Wise Guys and the Wise Guys Rule!

This was the product I ended up with doing Jacqui Fehl's class over at Soul Food 2015, and lemme tell ya I worked for it. I pretty much totally trashed it at one point, as you can see here:

It looked like this before I murdered it with rubbing alcohol:
I hated him, he looked like a crack head wind up toy. So he got flipped upside down, melted and scraped and voila, Wise Guys Rule.

It was a whole lotta fun when the Wise Guys showed up. LOL!

Peonies and Serenity

Well I finally cracked open that box of ink. I'm pretty sure I did not use them the way they were intended and of course I pulled everything off my cart in the end but I am happy with the result.

Right after I was done the ink I wasn't happy with it. I found the colors garish. It does't show in the video for some reason but in real life they were pretty neon for some reason. I wasn't sure if I should stick to the plan or take the road less travelled. In the end the flowers kept calling me. I pulled out my brand new aquatones that I got for Christmas, throw in some acrylics and what the heck some neocolor pastels and voila. The whole process reminded me of the serenity prayer. 

Hope you like!
