The Studio


Take your time to browse about the site. I have tried to group the subjects under their own little tags to make your search easier. It is my hope that you find somethings that give you joy.

Just below are two example of what brings joy to me. Here on the left is a collaborative silk painting. Barb, Oyku and I just sat around the table with inks and painted – no plan, no direction, just play. When we stopped playing and stepped back to look at our beautiful mess we were amazed at the scene we created. I hope you like it. We named it Coral Reef.

Here on the right is a Fall leaf embossed and painted with the Alcohol Inks. If you have arrived here because of my YouTube posting, go to the menu above and click on the Alcohol Ink tab and the Tutorial Tab. All the directions for completing this project and others are right there. And don’t forget to have fun!

Once again, pushing me out of my comfort zone, I used oils for the first time! I know, it’s not that great, but it was just my first attempt.

Thank you stopping by. Do spend a little time on my site and let me know what you think. I would love to hear your thoughts. You cannot hurt my feelings – my ego has been stomped on so many times, it’s impervious now to combat boots and stiletto heels!

Digital Drawing

Are you curious about the digital drawing?  Its pretty simple; however there is a bit of a learning curve to mount, but it won’t take you long.  If you can draw on paper, you can draw with the assistance of an app – especially one like mine.  I find the K.I.S.S. approach to things fits me just fine.  I don’t have time to learn multiple system brushes and requirements, image size and resizes, jpeg, gif, burnout or gaussin blur, etc.  Just give me a virtual canvas and the ability to mix my own colors, and turn me loose.  Check out the video on the right to see digital drawing in real time.

If you are interested in trying your hand at digital drawing, there are many apps you could try, but I have found that SketchClub is the most intuitive and less confusing of the current offerings. I think it is currently offered for $2.99, and it is a single purchase. You get the support of the members, which are many, and you will learn from the experts in the field of digital arts. Do what I did. Just jump in, make mistakes and learn.
