Aerial View, 6″ x 6″ watercolor and ink on paper, 150/365 Cups. I love exploring pattern and have been having a blast riffing off of #jacquelinegroag amazing pattern designs. You can learn a lot by studying a master. Continuing to grow from @lisacongdon class about idea generation.
My favorite coffee drinks, 8″ x 8″ watercolor, ink and marker on paper. I love all three of these coffee drinks. I believe each one of them has a specific amount and should be served in a specific kind of cup or glass. When somebody serves me a cappuccino in a giant bowl cup, it drives me crazy.
Reading and getting ready for the day before jumping online to work. I like this way to orient myself to
my work week. Lots of student and client time this week, and also working on my new e-book and art portfolio. I love the variety in my days. Here’s to a great Monday and a wildly creative week for all. 🌺
Greens and Cups, 8″ x 8″ watercolor and ink on paper. It’s so fun to play with pattern and color. I love how this turned out.
This one was really fun! I kept feeling that it needed some words along the bottom section but couldn’t find the right ones. Would you put words in and what would they be?
This week’s reads. Just finished the novel Britt-Marie Was Here and starting Troubling Love. Really enjoying When Strangers Meet – very important message for us now as we need to focus on our common humanity and not differences being used to divide us. Beautiful Money is helping me keep my financial game healthy and happy. Urawaza is odd, funny and useful. Loving how Ways of Curating is making me think about art differently. The Island Japan book is a great way to see an illustrated adventure. The Art of Vinyasa is my teachers’ book that I got last night at their signing. Can’t wait to dive in. What are you reading today?
I read Marina Abramovic’s book Walk Through Walls in three days. I couldn’t stop reading the story of this fascinating, powerful performance artist.
Marina, from Yugoslavia, has traveled the world as an artist and explorer, collaborating with the likes of Tibetan Monks, the Dalai Lama and Willem Defoe. Her performance at MoMA, The Artist is Present, gave her greater renown. She’s developed her own method of getting present for the sake of higher level of performance….or should I say more depth of humanity and truth.
I’m inspired by her boldness, creativity and collaborative spirit. This portrait now hangs in my studio as a reminder to dig deeper, be braver and stretch beyond societal boundaries. Thank you, Marina.
First day without coffee! So far, so good. Maybe making coffee art will supplant my desire/need for drinking it! ☕️
Thank you Barak Obama for being a true leader who cares about the world. I will miss you, your intelligence, and your grace.
