I'm really enjoying my new passion for mixed media! This is the second one (I think) and definitely won't be the last! I used doilies for the lace areas and some moulding past for the dots. I like the drips and the colors. What do you think? What's your favorite part and do you think I should do more?

This is my latest painting I've been working on. I'm using a palette knife for most of it, but start out with a brush to get some color down. This is my first peacock but I don't think it will be my last!
Thanks for following me and my art!:)
oil pastels, charcoal, and fine glitter accenting the flowers and the tower. I designed the dress myself. How do you like it? Now I just need to go to Michael's to buy some fun stencil for my next piece!

If you follow me on Facebook then you'll know how this one came about. I just signed it…
I have a few different series of these in mind but have to see how you all like it first!
Inspired by fall's light and a fresh look on life, this is what came out. I asked my Facebook friends on my fan page and I'd love to hear your thoughts too!... What is your interpretation of this image? How does it make you feel?
Just finished this one for Breast Cancer Awareness month! Your winning bid will go to your choice of Cancer Charity. Happy bidding! While I'm here I want to tell you about my mom and her surgery. It went as great as it possibly could! They took out her uterus and ovaries but found "very little" cancer so there was no need to take the lymph nodes! She bounced right back form surgery and is having a hard time resting. She's already to get out and about! Thank you all for your positive thoughts and prayers!
Thank you Leslie Saeta for hosting this challenge! I don't have all the paintings prepared to post in this collage, yet, so I'll have to do that later. This has been a great learning experience for me and has also helped get me into a habit of painting everyday! Thank you all who found something special to add to your home! Out of this bunch, eleven have sold and I think one from the bunch I haven't posted yet. I did want to keep them all similar but ended up doing some quick watercolor "sketches" for lack of time. I'm still working on several commissions along with all of these.
I hope that this challenge can help me focus in one direction. I'm jotting down a plan of action right now. If anything it's renewed my momentum to keep pushing forward!
I think most artists struggle with this at times, (at least I think they do). It's not an easy business to pursue, that's for sure. Putting your art art out there is like putting a piece of your soul out for the world to see!
Thanks so much for following me on my journey!
