Mixed Media 30/30

Well, I didn't do very well at keeping at this blog...but tomorrow is a new month, so we will see what happens :)!

Here are my paintings from our group Mixed Media 30/30. I didn't complete all 30 days worth of paintings but am happy with what I've done. My journal has plenty more sketches that are just begging to be painted, so that is one of my goals for the next few days.  We will continue on with this group and I am so glad, as there are such amazing women there. So supportive, encouraging and loving! How I wish that we all lived close by!

I'm Back!

I can't believe that it has been so long since I've been on this blog! But...not looking back with regret, instead looking forward with promise and excitement.

Being involved in Junelle Hallstrom Jacobsen's online classes Junelle's classes have been some of the best things I've ever been involved in. The classes have evolved into a group of some of the most supportive encouraging group of women that I've ever "hung out" with! Some are close to where I live but most of them are across the country and some in other countries!!

This friendship and encouragement has really set me free to go forward in  my own art. I feel real progress and feel that something incredible is just around the corner. I'm so excited to see what that is!!

Here are a couple of projects that I've done last month. I am happy with them :)!

These are just a few. I will be posting more on a regular basis.
