I haven't...

I haven't posted in a while because I've been away. Last week I went to the SF bay area to visit with my sister. We had a good time and hitting every scrap booking stores we could find. Michael's and Joann's still seems to be the best price for the tools. Also we spent a day visiting China Town in SF looking for Chinese Brush supplies but only found student grade material, so China Town was a bust.

I discovered a cool scrap booking store in Santa Clarita which is about 30 minutes from my house. This store seems to have a lot of the latest scrap booking supplies. On Sunday I took a card making class where I did some embroidery and bead work on the card. Very time consuming and rather tight working with the seed beads.

Lately I just seem to be bouncing off the walls artistically. I really need to get back into just painting and choose a medium...watercolor,colored pencil, or acrylics. I guess I could view this period as a growth period since I'm trying to expand my bag of tools and refining the skills I already have as an artist.

More flowers

I have a tendency to save up my WIP drawings and paintings and take photo's in batches. I wish I had a better system to be able to draw,paint,photograph, and then add to my blog.

I was going through all my photos that I took from Butchard Gardens in Victoria,BC about 3 years ago. The images were just as fresh as when I was standing in front of them snapping the picture. Butchard Gardens...I wish I'd live closer to visit as often as I did when I lived in Washington State.

I want to start selling prints, so I'm looking at various sites to do so. My prints will be 5 x 7 and can be slipped into a 8 x 10 mat.

Once I have all the mechanics of selling...I'll let you know how you can own one too.

Elephants running...

OK, this might not look like elephants to you, but hey...this is what I see. What about you????
