Art Journal Peek


Good morning friends, and happy March!  Although, it feels like the depth of January here, just sayin'.  My phone says is -7.  Ha!!!  BUT!!!  We will not let it dampen our spirits...spring will come!  We will just keep plodding along....until we are skipping again.  Right?

Here's a quick journal peek.  This is a spread I created LAST January...but realized I didn't share.  
Hopefully the colors and patterns will perk up your Monday morning.  I still love making those weird flowers.  And I love how that face turned out....need to work on more of those.  




Keep smiling!!!!  -Dori

February Flower #28


And finally.....#28 is here as well. This is an 8" square wood panel, also with lots of texture....and I love how the "staining" turned out.
And this completes the 28 February Flower painting challenge for me. What fun! Selecting a theme and running with it for an entire month really helped me to push myself, using different methods and materials. It got my creative juices flowing. Setting a goal to get 28 done was also great motivation to keep my butt in the chair and keep working, even when I didn't feel like it. Thanks everyone, for following along, and for all of your positive feedback. I appreciate it!
I'll be announcing the Etsy shop sale later today...it will go live tomorrow morning....March 1st!!! XOXO

February Flower #27


Greetings, earthlings!  Flower painting #27 is here!!  This is a highly textured canvas measuring 16x20.  It was FUN to create!  The photo doesn't quite bring across the intensity of the colors.  There's a bit of neon in there.  I love it!!!  Stay tuned for #28!!!
