I try to spend time every day doing art of some type. Here are a few pages from my art journal.
A study of my eye
quick watercolors paintings of items in my house
A self portrait.
The flowers, cut from scrap-booking paper, represent beautiful thoughts and ideas to paint.
Using an ink pen or felt tip marker makes me think before drawing a line or a mark. I only have one chance of drawing what I see. My drawings of people have increased in their likeness using this method.
zentangle is a fun, relaxing method to try
Doodles at the beach.
I am still working on bird paintings.
A plein air painting I painted ( in oils) of my friends flowers as I sat in her rock garden.
Take a few minutes today and make something beautiful. It will make you happy
