I have been participating in a weekly art group. There is a woman who is an expert and she helps us with technique, design, mediums, etc. Mostly I have been working in watercolors and am enjoying learning and feeling a bit more confident each week. I showed her a Mixed Media canvas I had created based on one of my watercolors. She and another class member were convinced that I could sell them. So I JOINED the local artist association and will be selling my works at the Art in the Park Show in September. Since we are leaving tomorrow to visit our daughter for 10 days, I have been frantically trying to work on canvases so I have a supply on hand!
Here is a peak of what I have been working on!
A quick tale of why this is so unbelievable. I have a twin sister. She and my mom are the artists. I got the math and science gene and stayed away from any and all things arts related for years. However, I have been scrapping since the 1990's which I guess could be considered art related. Two or three years ago I heard about Mixed Media and took a small class. I began to play with canvases adding papers, paints, stamps, etc. I now also do art journaling and I find I enjoy this entire process! So, it is never too late to change your mind and enjoy something you always disliked!
I hope you will follow along and join me as I begin this adventure! Thank you for your support and comments!
