Creative Heart Monday - Monet's Waterlilies in India Inks

Happy Creative Heart Monday (and Memorial Day)!

This month, I was inspired by Claude Monet for my Inspiration From The GREATS project.  I painted his waterlilies with acrylic paint.  When I finished, I wanted to try it again with inks, so that's what I did in this piece.

Here we go.............................


Yupo Paper 11" X 14"
Dr. PH Martens Bombay India Inks

I really enjoyed this style and am looking forward to trying it again.  You could also use acrylic inks. Check out the acrylic painting piece that I did for Inspiration From The GREATS!

Have a great Memorial Day and a wonderful week.

Creative Heart Monday - Strong Women

Happy Creative Heart Monday......on Wednesday!

First, I'd like to apologize for missing two Mondays.  I've had a crazy couple of weeks.  My parents have been in and out of doctor's appointments and the hospital.  Even though they are only in their 70's (so not super old yet LOL), I still feel it necessary to accompany them to their important appointments and, of course, when they're in the hospital.

On top of that, I have another art festival this weekend and have been trying to make some new art, get organized, packed, etc.

So today's video is actually a project that I did for Gel Press a couple month's ago for their blog.  The video was never "public", so you might not have seen it.  If you did already see it, I've also put another (very small) project video up on YouTube.

So here we go with the first one...........................

................and here's the second one................

I hope to get back on track next week.  Thank you for your patience.

Have a great week!
