This is what I am currently working on...


I am painting on muslin (calico) which I ironed onto the waxy side of freezer paper, there is still much to do!  I am just considering this my underpainting for now.  I am determined to finish this!  I am using Inktense watercolor (wc) pencils and Karat Aquarelle wc crayons.  I will iron them to set the color and then add some acrylic paints and gel medium for finishing.  I plan on doing some embroidery and adding other scraps of materials I have.  I recently purchased a box of antique Kimono pieces from Katie Kendrick and have to use them up, what better way to use them!  Oh and I musn't forget the amount of old buttons I have!  Hopefully I will make a fabric journal that I have been longing to make!

At Peace


I have always wanted to just paint with watercolor and decided since I was in the mood to do something now would be a good time.  I just painted in blue watercolor the eyes, nose, mouth and shape of face and neck.  I then added a mix of red brown and blue for outline and dabbed gesso over the whole thing.  5.5 x 8.5 watercolor paper.  It was relaxing and intuitive which is the same as meditative to me.

Playing with scrap wc paper and having fun!


I had done a collage a long time ago on a large piece of wc (watercolor) paper and hated it.  I recently found it in a pile of papers and tried painting over the whole thing and peeling off loose collaged paper from it.  I then tore it in half and folded it and tearing the edges and adding more wc to it!


I then did a sketch with black stabilo pencil and used a brush and water to get my first painting down, my underpainting.  I added some acrylic paint and then collaged a photo I found on pinterest to it.


Here it is opened.  I did get brave and wrote some words.  "What if you could go back and talk to your younger self...what would you tell her?"



The moment waits for you....
