Bodywork


Here is what I worked on last night and today.  I really need to beacon my creative writing muse because I'm having a difficult time coming up with beautiful and melodic names for my artwork.  I thought I might call this Butterfly Dreams, but I don't know.  That sounds too corny.  It is corny.

So I settled with Bodywork.  I guess because ... hmmm.  Well, I don't know why.

Here's a closeup of the roses I painted on the vine.  Used several colors of heavy body acrylics, swirling with my brush to try and make it look like a rose.  The leaves were made by quick drawing on colored paper...then I added transparent paints and fiddled with india ink brush markers.

When I was done, my fingers were coated in paint and color.  Typical look for me on a weekend or evening.

I am looking forward to next week.  I only work on Monday and am taking the remaining days off to vacate my mind of business process flows, requirements, and proof of concept builds.

I am definitely looking forward to spending relaxing time with Dave and Oliver.  Poor little Oliver spends so much time giving me the pitiful look from underneath my desk on the days I work from home....because he doesn't get 100% of my attention.

Right this second I'm getting it...and in between trying to get me play with him, he's staring longingly out the back door trying to find something....anything...to bark at.

So, we're off for a jog in the woods.  For Oliver, he's off to explore the wilds.  

Or so he thinks.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
