Where has the month of March gone? I have been still creating new images for Christmas 2016 and will be finished up by the end of April. YEA!
You know the old adage about always drawing and painting using the best materials that you can. Well, sometimes your best work comes out of not "caring" enough to use the very best. When I am faced with a beautiful, clean sheet of watercolor paper and I have done a thumbnail sketch and even a preliminary drawing with color, I feel like I have invested a lot of time and effort and the end product better be pretty good. When I just sit down and start drawing on any old piece of paper and drop in a little color, then magic happens. I haven't invested emotional time or energy, just a lot of joy and satisfaction. Well, I found myself painting with friends the other day and this is what happened. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
Well, Kozy and Rocky continue to grow and become more and more rambunctious. Here they are again "helping" me with my art tools. Kozy is trying to chew on my acrylic brushes and Rocky has discovered that the paper towel roll is even better when he has chewed it! The joys of painting with kitties!
