Kindness Matters




Good Morning Blog Friends....

Hope that this day finds you all doing well.

Here in the studio, things are cranking along - at quite a high speed, it seems.  Some days I find it hard to keep up, but I keep plugging along here.

I wanted to share this video from my Youtube channel, and hope that you will have a peek.

I truly enjoy playing in my art journal.  Just a way to enjoy experimenting with my supplies.  I find that I simply love the process.

Enjoy the video!!

Questions or comments - just ask!

Day 16....

Happy Friday, Blog Friends...
Hope that you all have a fantastic day!!
After todays painting session, I made myself put these colors away!  I just get stuck sometimes, but I thoroughly love this color combo!!  These little 4x6 are available in my Etsy shop under card bundles.

Side note, do you have an art tribe??  You know, good friends that share your passion for art...maybe you all get together and paint???
I am so lucky to call this gal my friend.  She is truly a blessing and such an inspiration.  She just is.
We get together to paint, play, bounce ideas and most important, laugh a whole lot.
I hope that you all have a great day, and a creative and restful weekend.
Until next time,
Ophelia

Day 15 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days...

Its the half way mark....
Some days, I feel unstoppable and yet others, I struggle.  I find that when I get stuck on a color combo - as is the case here, I just can't get enough of it, and it is very easy to fall into a color rut.
Tomorrow, I may change it up a bit...you know, to keep things fresh and exciting, but I truly love the moodiness that these colors convey.  Maybe its me finding this Liquitex Blue Violet color buried deep in my stash that ignited this series, or the fact that I just love the darkness that these colors seem to bring...not sure yet of why I am in love with these colors together...but I shall make it a point to dig deep in my studio to find those buried gems that await my play.
Until next time,
Ophelia

Day 14 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days...

Good Morning Blog Friends!
I often find that when I try a new color palette...or even the simple addition of a color that I don't often use, I use it over and over and over again...
I did that again this morning, and will probably do it again tomorrow as I am simply loving the moodiness of these colors together.
See you tomorrow, right here for day 15!
Until next time,
Ophelia

30 in 30 Day 13....

Today is a bit of a moody day.  Nothing for me is better than painting away a Monday that is rough.
I usually head to my studio for escape, and that is exactly what I did today....as a teacher, Mondays can often be pretty rough.  I am not sure if it is because I am supremely spoiled by a weekend off, or if my kids are far more rested than I am...
I decided to change up my palette a bit for this 4x6 which will become a greeting card available in a bundle in my Etsy shop.
I hope that you all enjoy your day.
After my painting session this morning, I plan to!
Until next time,
Ophelia

30 in 30, Days 10, 11, and 12...

Good Morning Blogfriends,
Hope that you all had a wonderful, restful weekend.
Here, it was a rainy 70 degree weekend...I spent a ton of time inside - catching up on naps.


I continued to paint - between naps....daily, and I am loving this challenge for that simple reason - painting daily.  Showing up even when I don't feel like it...because excuses or things can quickly take over for me.
Hope that you have a beautiful week of creativity!!
Until next time,
Ophelia

Day 9 of 30 in 30...

Good Morning, Blog Friends...
We have made it to Friday, and thank goodness.  This week has been long, and I am finding that painting has become my refuge.
8x8 Acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas.
Nothing else seems to take me away like heading off to my studio and shaking the day off with paint.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, restful weekend.  I plan to.
Until next time,
Ophelia
